There's much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There's plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in Florence, SC. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.
This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it's important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.
Here's a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn't mean it's going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in Florence and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.
Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed - enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.
This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back - innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend's and family's opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won't necessarily work for you.
Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night's sleep.
This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.
First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.
If you have a bad back, it's crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.
You read that right! Sleep King is the first choice for quality beds in Florence, but we also have a huge selection of furniture for your home. If you're looking for a one-stop-shop for mattresses and furniture alike, you have come to the right place. If you're shopping for a new mattress at the best price possible, why not throw in a bedroom suite at an amazing price too?

FLORENCE COUNTY, S.C. (WPDE) — A couple of drivers are upset after hitting cows on West Cummings Road in the Effingham community of Florence County.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol said there have been three consecutive weeks in the past month with cars hitting livestock on the road.
Kietra Keels hit a cow on the road on Jan. 19 while driving to work.
I saw something kind of dark big and black in the road. And I’m like, Lord my eyes are playing tricks on me, so finally, as I got closer, I realize what it was and I tried to hit the brakes. But it was too late, so I hit it. And then I am covered in glass and I’m just shaking. Just shaking and I’m like oh Lord, oh Lord," said Keels.
Keels said troopers came to the scene, but they never told her who owns the cow.
She added that her car was badly damaged and she had to file the damages through her insurance.
“Somebody needs to take accountability for it because it’s going to keep happening. I just pray nobody loses their life," said Keels.
Moses Pressley also hit a cow in August 2021 on West Cummings Road and said it totaled his pick-up truck.

Pressley said because he was never told who owned the livestock, he ended up footing the bill for damages to his truck.
“It wasn’t my fault and I had to take care of this myself. Something has got to be done before somebody loses their life," said Pressley.
ABC 15 reached out to S.C. Highway Patrol to learn who owns the cows. Troopers said they're investigating and will get back to us.
There is a law in South Carolina that deals with livestock roaming out of their pasture.
S.C. SECTION 47-7-110 reads:
"It shall be unlawful for the owner or manager of any domestic animal of any description wilfully or negligently to permit any such animal to run at large beyond the limits of his own land or the lands leased, occupied, or controlled by him. Any owner, manager, or person violating the provisions of this section shall be subject to a fine for each offense of not more than twenty-five dollars or to imprisonment for not more than twenty-five days."
Some car insurance agencies said if you hit a cow with your car on a road, you need to call 911 to report it.
They said the incidents are treated just like if you hit a deer.
Officials said you may have to file a lawsuit against the owner of the livestock in order to be reimbursed for damages to your vehicle.

Baseball is back with the return of spring training, and this week our hosts talk with Paul Gross, a recently retired broadcast meteorologist who is a weather consultant for the Detroit Tigers. They discuss how weather impacts baseball, from lightning safety rules to the precise timing of a rain forecast, including a dramatic situation in a game between the Tigers and Red Sox. Paul also shared a unique story from his consulting during the 2005 MLB All-Star Game. About the Across the Sky podcast The weekly weather podcast is hosted on a rotation by the Lee Weather team: Matt Holiner of Lee Enterprises' Midwest group in Chicago, Kirsten Lang of the Tulsa World in Oklahoma, Joe Martucci of the Press of Atlantic City, N.J., and Sean Sublette of the Richmond Times-Dispatch in Virginia. Chapters: (0:00:02) - Advising Sports Teams on Weather Conditions (0:05:36) - Forecasting Weather for a Baseball Team (0:10:42) - Weather and Sports (0:18:16) - The Benefits of Advanced Weather Technology (0:23:34) - Weather's Impact on Sports Decisions (0:30:48) - Weather Consideration in Major League Baseball Chapter Summaries: (0:00:02) - Advising Sports Teams on Weather Conditions (6 Minutes) Across the Sky', a national Lee Enterprises weather podcast, is hosted by meteorologists Sean Sublette in Richmond, Joe Martucci in Atlantic City and Matt Holiner in Chicago. This episode discusses the winter storms that have recently been plaguing the Midwest, and how the weather in the upcoming weeks is expected to be mild with snow expected to return next week. They also bring on a guest, Paul Gross, a recently retired broadcast meteorologist who has been consulting for the Detroit Tigers and other big-name sports teams for a while now. (0:05:36) - Forecasting Weather for a Baseball Team (5 Minutes) The conversation focuses on the protocols for forecasting lightning and calling or pausing a game as a result. It is explained that the safety of the players and the field conditions must be taken into account, as well as the safety of everyone in the stadium. An example is given of a situation which occurred during a game, when a severe thunderstorm was taking a direct bead on the ballpark and the umpire refused to stop the game. A discussion follows on the protocols for lightning and how they have changed over the years, with insight from the Paul's experience advising the Tigers. (0:10:42) - Weather and Sports (8 Minutes) This chapter of the Across the Sky podcast covers the significance of lightning and how it can be a major weather killer, yet often flies under the radar due to lack of media coverage. The conversation then transitions to the importance of time when it comes to the weather in relation to sports games and the preparation that goes into playing a game. It is noted that the decision to start the game is often up to the home team general manager. The conversation then delves into a situation in which the Detroit Tigers had a game in Boston, but with a massive rain area approaching the game was started despite the fact that it was unlikely to be completed. (0:18:16) - The Benefits of Advanced Weather Technology (5 Minutes) This conversation is about a unique experience involving the weather at the 2005 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. Paul Gross recounts how, as a season ticket holder, he and his family had purchased tickets for the game, and a cousin from Chicago had come in to join them. The weather forecast was mostly dry, but the commissioner of baseball, who was a bit of a nervous type when it came to the weather, asked the speaker to stay with him during the game. As the game progressed, the speaker was able to track a few showers on radar. (0:23:34) - Weather's Impact on Sports Decisions (7 Minutes) The conversation focuses on weather's impact on the game of baseball, particularly the flight of the ball in different weather conditions. The speaker talks about his experience with Michigan football and a game they played in Colorado where they were at risk of being affected by a tropical storm. They also discuss the Detroit Lions and their playing both inside and outside and the impact of weather on their games and practices. The speaker talks about the high stakes of the information he provides and how it can affect the outcome of games. Lastly, they talk about whether decision makers ever ask the speaker what he would do in a high stakes situation' (0:30:48) - Weather Consideration in Major League Baseball (12 Minutes) Matt Holiner shared his experience of working as a meteorologist for the Cincinnati Reds and his comparison of the different mentalities between football and baseball when it comes to forecasting weather. Matt discussed how teams will wait for two or three hours until they make the call to cancel a game due to inclement weather and how he had to communicate with the grounds crew and operations manager but not the players. He also shared that football has a higher threshold for what they will tolerate weather-wise and will play in almost any condition, while baseball has a lower threshold and will typically only play if the field is not deemed dangerous.

MARION, S.C. – The board of directors of the Marion County Healthcare Foundation presented an $80,000 community impact grant to Marion County School District and PACE Center for Girls to serve up to 40 girls in Marion County by providing individual, peer group and family counseling sessions along with individual goal setting and implementing strategies for future success.
PACE Center for Girls Reach Program Director for South Carolina Lisa Spears said the program has locations in Florence and Darlington. Marion will be one of five locations with expansions coming to both Florence and Darlington counties.
Pace is expanding its Reach programming to provide social, emotional, behavioral and mental health counseling to girls ages 11-17 in Marion County. Officials said the expansion is in response to the growing need for mental health resources for young girls in the region and made possible thanks to the Marion County Healthcare Foundation.
“I think girls in the area have a need for empowerment and assisting them on their path to emotional wellness and we’re excited to help them fill that need.” Spears said. “Our program provides individual counseling and group counseling for girls and we do counseling with the parents as well. We are going to be focused on referrals from girls in middle school and the alternative school.”
Spears said the biggest benefit of the program is helping girls get motivated about the future and finding their voice.
Senior Director of Program Performance and Innovation April Brownlee said an investment in girls in an investment in community.
“We break multigenerational cycles and we know that our girls become better and we are beyond grateful for the support of the Marion County Healthcare Foundation,” she said.
The PACE mission is to provide girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training, and advocacy. The program launched in Florida in 1985 and has grown from 21 locations to expanding in Georgia in 2018 and South Carolina in 2022.
“Pace’s team of counselors, therapists and educators develop individualized approaches based on each girl’s unique strengths — centering her experience as a young woman in this world,” Brownlee said. “There is great in every girl, and we are optimistic that our programming will empower girls and change outcomes in South Carolina and beyond.”
Marion County Healthcare Foundation Executive Director Pete Mazzaroni said the program aligns with the school district’s strategic plan and focus area in public education.
“When we assessed the grant we felt that this was something really important for us to support,” he said.
Marion County Superintendent Dr. Kandace Bethea she appreciated the partnership because it goes hand-in-hand with academics.
“Any type of support and wrap-around service we are able to provide is a benefit,” Bethea said. “We’re just excited and we’re looking forward to growing this program already.”
Bethea said the Marion County Healthcare Foundation continues to be a large supporter of the school district.
“This will have a tremendous impact,” she said. “We have not had as many supports in place for our female population and that is a great need so I think it will be much needed a long overdue.”
Marion County Department of Juvenile Justice Director Cynthia O. Ford said she is grateful to have the opportunity for young girls.
“It is needed and I’m glad to have the resources.”
Enrollment in the program at Palmetto Middle School will begin this August 2023 with outreach to the Success Academy Alternative School.
“The emotional health needs in Marion County are significant. For many girls, participating in Pace Reach will be one of their first opportunities to learn about mental and emotional wellness,” Spears said.
Girls who participate in the program improve their skills and ability to make healthy decisions and reduce harmful habits to their health, wellness and safety. Through these services, girls learn how to manage stress and adversities, improve personal relationships, learn new communication skills and improve school performance.
“I am thrilled to see much needed gender-responsive, trauma-informed, and strength-based mental health and social services coming to adolescent girls in Marion County, through Pace Center for Girls,” Sen. Kent M. Williams said. “This is an organization I believe will do great things for our community, and I look forward to continuing to support their work.”
