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 Ladson, 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 Ladson 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 Ladson, 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.

Former Clemson/current University of Miami receiver Frank Ladson will likely be among a rare group of players who by the end of 2022 can say they played for one team, transferred to a program they previously faced, then faced their original team after transferring.“I missed home,’’ said the 6-4, 205-pound Ladson, a fourth-year junior who was rated as high as a five-star prep receiver (PrepStar) and four-star wideout by other major recruiting sites when he played at Homestead South Dade High School. “It was time...
Former Clemson/current University of Miami receiver Frank Ladson will likely be among a rare group of players who by the end of 2022 can say they played for one team, transferred to a program they previously faced, then faced their original team after transferring.
“I missed home,’’ said the 6-4, 205-pound Ladson, a fourth-year junior who was rated as high as a five-star prep receiver (PrepStar) and four-star wideout by other major recruiting sites when he played at Homestead South Dade High School. “It was time to come home.’’
Not only has Ladson caught passes from No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick Trevor Lawrence, he’s now catching passes from projected first-round pick Tyler Van Dyke.
He’s also the second UM transfer receiver in as many years who has competed in the College Football Playoff. Ladson’s Tigers lost to LSU in the Jan. 13, 2020, national championship game following the 2019 season. Though Ladson participated, he didn’t record any stats. After the 2020 season, Ladson’s Tigers lost to Ohio State in a national semifinal. He caught one pass for 9 yards.
Charleston Rambo, who set UM’s single-season school receiving record in 2021 (1,172 yards and seven touchdowns on 79 catches) and is now battling for an NFL spot with the Carolina Panthers, played in the 2019 and 2020 College Football Playoff.
“Some of the guys asked me about it. Like, ‘What’s the biggest game you ever played in? The loudest game you ever played in?’ Ladson said Thursday after the the sixth day of fall camp and first session in full pads. “It’s just a different type of atmosphere. You’re in the playoff [and] you’re playing for a championship. At the end of the game they bring a stage out and confetti falls.”
Ladson, whose Clemson career was marred by consecutive seasons of sports hernia injuries which he said necessitated two surgeries — one on each side — said he’s now healthy, fighting for a starting spot and doing everything he can to become the big-bodied receiver the Hurricanes need.
“I ask Frank questions all the time,’’ said Canes wideout Key’Shawn Smith, another dominant pass-catcher on the outside. “It’s nice to have a big type of receiver like him, because we don’t have that. We got stretch-the-ball or stretch-the-field speed. To have a big receiver like him for the red zone is good to have.’’
Ladson’s transfer marked the third time since 2019 that UM has gotten an elite receiver from the portal. Besides Rambo, the other time was KJ Osborn, now with the Minnesota Vikings, in 2019.
“It’s cool to come home, right?” said ACC Network analyst Eric McClain, a former Clemson offensive lineman who watched practice Thursday. “There’s a bunch of stuff with the transfer portal that I kind of feel bad about, but that’s a good one. There are times when guys just need fresh starts, guys just need to go home.
“I hope and pray he’ll blossom here, because he’s a heck of a player — unbelievable talent.’’
Ladson started four games for Clemson in 2021, tallying four catches for 19 yards before he had to undergo his second surgery. In 2020, Ladson caught 18 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games, four of them starts despite multiple injuries.
“It was kind of like one injury carried over to both years,’’ he said. “It’s great now. It was healed even before I came to Miami [for spring practice]. “ He said it’s been a good experience “learning from a new coach and being around a new group of guys.’’
Ladson was an All-American at South Dade and rated the No. 23 player in USA Today’s “Chosen 25” national high school rankings The 247Sports composite ranking had him as the nation’s No. 7 wideout and 39th best player, regardless of position. He earned his degree in communications at Clemson in three years.
Ladson lauded Miami coach Mario Cristobal and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney. “Great coaches. Both are real big on culture and putting the work in.”
Swinney told the Miami Herald at the ACC media days last month that he was “really proud” of Ladson. “I’m disappointed he wasn’t able to really enjoy the fruits of his labor and talents at Clemson because he was hurt,’’ Swinney said. “But he graduated, a really smart kid. Hopefully he can stay healthy and have the type of year he’s capable of having and wants to have.’’
As for his similarities in Lawrence and Van Dyke, Ladson said they were both students of the game, perfectionists, wanting the best for their teammates and “demanding that from everybody” around them.
He said he appreciated Van Dyke coming into the receivers’ meetings from time to time. “That’s been great. He’s the quarterback. Whatever he wants he gets. It’s like, ‘What you thinking about this route? How do you want me to come out on this?’... Angles, coming out of the route, ball placement, stuff like that.
“I love to get the feedback. The whole room loves it.’’
His goals this season? “Just to win as many games as we can,’’ he said. “Put in the work and everything is going to fall in place.’’

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — Officials with Trident Medical Center are officially breaking ground on a new, standalone behavioral hospital!
It will be the first the first freestanding behavioral hospital to open in the Lowcountry in over 30 years.
The nearly 58,790-square-foot facility in Ladson will include a single-story hospital and interior courtyard with space for recreation and therapy. The facility will have “state of the art” inpatient and outpatient services for Lowcountry residents.
The main difference this building will provide in comparison to general hospital care is more of a focus and extended resources for geriatric and adolescent care. The behavioral hospital will continue adult care as well.
The medical director for behavioral health at Trident, Jeffrey Culver, says he starts every day in the emergency room.
Currently, there are only 250 beds for mental health patients in the Lowcountry, and without a dedicated space for them — in most cases — a lot of them must go to the emergency room.
But with the construction of this new facility, Culver hopes it will help provide a safe space for real change and will get more people the help they need.
“I fully expect when this facility opens, that the dialogue both locally and nationally will continue to help chip away at that stigma. I think we're still a long way from where we need to be, where we can talk about mental health and mental illness the same way we talk about things like heart disease and cancer, but we're getting there. And I think being able to open up a brand-new facility and have people see that what we're doing is part of medicine,” Culver said.
ABC News 4's Sean Mahoney spoke with longtime mental health advocate Kelly Troyer, who works with the National Alliance of Mental Illness - Greater Charleston area.
She says the Lowcountry has come a long way in providing mental health services, but that there is still more work to be done and she hopes this will help kickstart that change.
Troyer also says the need for mental health services has drastically increased over the course of the pandemic.
The City of Charleston reported a 78.1 percent increase in the number of suicides from 2020 to 2021.
Troyer also has a personal connection to mental illness, as her son, Alex, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. She says finding resources in the Lowcountry was nearly impossible in the beginning, as she had to go out of state for care.
However, she says the construction of this new facility is a step in the right direction.
“As far as access to service, no, there's not enough in our state, especially in the rural areas. Then also, even here in the Lowcountry, we have great resources and we have people. But look at the Latino community and the African-American community, there's more [of a ] stigma around mental health conditions, so they don't reach out as much to the access that's here,” Troyer said. “So this groundbreaking of this hospital is very good news for us in our community. And we want to celebrate that.”
The hospital is expected to start out with 60 inpatient beds with the ability to expand and also will provide outpatient resources.
Construction started on the $30.4 million facility started in December, but officials with Trident waited until Thursday to hold the ceremony because of the weather.
Work is expected to wrap up in spring of 2023.
The groundbreaking ceremony and celebration is taking place at 11 a.m., at the construction site, which is about two miles from Trident Medical Center and right off highway 17 in Ladson, at 3445 Ingleside Boulevard.

LADSON, S.C., Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunter Quinn Homes is partnering with Ladson Youth Organization (LYO) to renovate the lavatory facilities at Tom Conley Park in Ladson, SC. The renovation will kick off Monday, September 26th, and conclude Friday, September 30th at 6:00 pm with a celebratory kickball game between Ladson Youth Organization program participants and team Hunter Quinn.
The renovation project is a result of a much-needed upgrade to the existing facilities of Tom Conley field, where LYO, and the surrounding Sangaree community, regularly host games and events. Hunter Quinn Homes' HQ Gives Back initiative will mobilize local contractors and suppliers to donate materials and labor to improve the facility.
"Over the years, the biggest complaint that Tom Conley received is the lack of functioning restroom facilities and how outdated they are," says Tommy Newell, President of LYO. "All of the other parks in the area have municipal financial support where LYO at Tom Conley Field is solely self-financed. We generate money off registrations, donations, and sponsorships, that contribute to the upkeep of the ball fields."
The renovation will be a complete gut and remodel of the existing lavatories. The facilities will receive new plumbing fixtures and partitions, a fresh coat of paint, partial roof replacement, and newly coated floors. The purpose of the renovation is to provide the local community with updated and functional facilities at a much-used community park that has been around for over 50 years. Hunter Quinns' trade partners are donating all materials and labor.
"Our team is passionate about providing excellent experiences building homes for our neighbors here in the Charleston market. Not only do we build homes, but we also build communities. We're fortunate that we can give back and see this as another opportunity to do some real good for the youth in the local community" explained Will Herring, Founder & President of Hunter Quinn Homes.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD)- Over 100 people are going through the process to become 911 telecommunicators in Charleston County after a month-long hiring event took place because of a staffing shortage.
“We’ve had a lot of questions from the 911 floor about how open interviews have been going so I’m excited to get these numbers to them as well. Hopefully we can keep all these people and have them be able to fill staff on the floor and help our community and staff as well,” said Kaitlin Jordan, the Public Education Specialist at the Charleston County Consolidated 911 Call Center.
The 47 vacancies in the center that have contributed to short staffing are still open because none of the new hires have completed training, but that will change in the next couple months.
One of the new hires is Jess Gongaware, who is new to Charleston.
“It’s more about the passion and the purpose for me working in support of our first responders on the road and being able to help serve and give back to our community,” said Gongaware.
Once applicants like Gongaware receive their offers they undergo training to learn about geography and CPR certification.
Despite new employees still being in the pipeline, Jordan is optimistic that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
“We definitely have enough people and enough applicants to fill those positions. We just have to get them into the training class,” said Jordan. “We’re moving through the application process way faster than we normally are which is great because we had groups of people coming in to do multiple things at once.”
Charleston County saw a total of 142 applications received last month which is over a 260% increase from last year. 105 of those applications are moving along.
A calling to help law enforcement, emergency medical works and firefighters is what compelled Gongaware to apply.
“Training can be a lot. It’s overwhelming at first. I’m not from here either so as far as geography goes it’s been a little bit tough. I’m excited to be here and happy to see where it goes from here,” said Gongaware.
No prior experience needed. High school diploma or equivalent required.
Training occurs within the department. The training program was recently re-accredited by Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials. (APCO)
Open 8 hour shifts: 5:45am – 2:00pm, 1:45pm – 10:00pm and 9:45pm – 6:00am
Shifts for new employees are issued based on staffing needs.

NORTH CHARLESTON — Months after a milk processing plant ceased production, the city is preparing the former Borden Dairy site for potential commercial use.
North Charleston City Council voted Sept. 22 to rezone the old plant at 5001 LaCross Road that closed in May from light industrial to commercial redevelopment.
The city said it is not aware of specific plans for the property, but acknowledged the goal is bring the lot and other adjacent properties in alignment with the city’s vision for the area as a commercial redevelopment district that will be located a short distance from the incoming Lowcountry Rapid Transit line.
The LCRT route, which will run a bus from Ladson to downtown Charleston along U.S. Highway 52, is expected to attract commercial and residential development along the corridor, particularly around the transit stations.
“The rezonings take into account the totality of development in the general area, including LCRT, which we believe is more conducive to commercial redevelopment,” said city spokesman Ryan Johnson.
The city is no stranger to repurposing industrial properties. But much of that activity has been concentrated on and near the former Charleston naval base, where former military buildings continue to be redeveloped to house new businesses and nonprofits.
Now, North Charleston’s focus is near City Hall, where a number of industrial lots along LaCross Road are being prepared for potential commercial use, including the well-known milk processing facility.
Four other properties along the road are also being rezoned, including 4990 LaCross Road, which contains a parking lot and undeveloped land, and 5100 LaCross Road, which includes forested area and cell tower.
“We intend to pursue more staff-initiated rezonings across the city to bring parcels and areas in line with the future land use map as dictated by the Comprehensive Plan,” said Deputy Planning Director Megan Clark.
The LaCross Road site became Borden’s when the milk company acquired the operations of locally based Coburg Dairy in 2011. Coburg, founded by a local farmer in 1920 off Savannah Highway, relocated to the North Charleston plant in the late 1980s.
But over the years, Borden Dairy, which informed employees in April that the company would be closing the plant in May, has become a bit out of character with the neighborhood.
Nearby is the MUSC Children’s Health R. Keith Summey Medical Pavilion, North Charleston City Hall and the newly constructed apartment complex beside it, and the Tanger Outlets.
Incoming to the area is the multimillion-dollar Uptown project, which includes a Topgolf entertainment venue, two parking garages, a coffee shop, several restaurants and office space, a 300-unit apartment building and two hotels.
There’s also speculation about whether a large Charleston-based hospital will soon call LaCross Road home.
The old Borden site is almost directly behind two parcels recently purchased by Roper Hospital, which announced last year its plans to relocate its downtown Charleston medical facility. The hospital bought two lots off LaCross Road for $13 million a piece, sparking discussion about where Roper will build its new health center.
Roper has not announced where its new health center will be located. The city of North Charleston did affirm that it has been in conversation with Roper about potentially relocating to the city.
“Soon, Roper St. Francis Healthcare will announce a new, more central location of Roper Hospital, a beacon of clinical excellence and service to the Lowcountry for the past 166 years,” said spokesman Andy Lyons.
