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 Roanoke, VA. 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 Roanoke 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 Roanoke, 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?
Living Room Sets - from traditional-style suites with classic textures to modern sets with attractive upholstery, we will help you find the best living room set for your home.
Bedroom Suites - our bedroom suites range from contemporary to classic and come in a variety of colors and styles to compliment your new mattress purchase.
Daybeds - from English-style daybeds available in espresso and cherry colors to multi-purpose beds with pull-out trundles, our selection of daybeds is unbeatable.
Futons - if you have younger children, they will love our futons. Who are we kidding? Adults do too! Futons are incredibly useful in small spaces and convert into comfy-cozy beds perfect for kids of all ages.

ROANOKE, Va. – Maggie Perrin-Key and Alex Eliades first met at Golden Cactus Brewing in downtown Roanoke and started dating shortly thereafter.
It was only fitting that their business - Hot Knots - debuted there the first weekend of March.
They both recall, “Alex made pretzels for Bread Craft every October. Last year, he did pretzel sandwiches too. And I said ‘These are really good. You need to make these available all the time. It was about two weeks later, I said, ‘Babe, why don’t we start a pretzel business? Would you like to start a pretzel business?’”
Just like their relationship together, they haven’t looked back on their business since. The two sold out quickly during the big debut at Golden Cactus, and it only took an hour and a half.
The combination of beer and pretzels is a match made in heaven - something they’ve learned from having traveled abroad. The two of them together - a baker and artist - make a great team too.
Perrin-Key says, “I care a lot about how it looks. He cares a lot about how it tastes.”
After going through the proofing process, the couple dips and salts the pretzels before throwing them in the big oven. They come out with a beautiful, golden color, as if painted onto each pretzel. When pulled apart, the soft and delicate dough is revealed.
The design of each pretzel is different, depending on whether it’s being sold individually or as a sandwich.
“We’ve got a chive butter, a mustard butter and then obatzda which is a German cheese spread. The sandwiches are going to be ham and pickle with gruyere and mustard butter. Gravlax sandwich with chive butter and capers and then a turkey with obatzda and winter radishes.”
Now that the first event is out of the way, you can look for future pop-ups by following along on Hot Knots Instagram.

Virginia- $3.14 per gallon, up 1.4 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.12 per gallon.
“The national average rose last week as the transition to summer gasoline has now started across the entire country. The higher cost of these various blends is being passed along to motorists, as we see every year ahead of the summer driving season,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Some regions are moving to the required summer gasoline in different steps then others, and the fragmentation of required blends absolutely plays a role in these price increases. Logistical challenges in making the transition during a time when refiners are also doing maintenance work can create hotspots and lead to noticeable jumps in prices during the spring. While we may not see weekly increases, the overall trend will remain upward through much of the spring. By Memorial Day, most of the nation will be transitioned to their respective required blend of fuel, and gas prices could ease, but a $4 per gallon national average remains possible by then.”

Sleep in a bank, have a sip in its vault, and check out great local fare and vibrant culture in downtown Roanoke
When The Liberty Trust bank building opened its doors in 1910, it was a celebrated example of architecture and design.
Over the course of a century, the seven-story historic landmark was home to a number of commercial and financial institutions before making its debut as a luxury boutique hotel last year.
Inside and out, the recent renovation took full advantage of the building’s period details, preserving the Roman Ionic columns in the entrance, bronze main doors, granite exterior with carved rosettes and the balustrade roof.
Today, the property is regarded by historians to be one of the best examples of Edwardian-era architecture in Virginia.
The Vault, the hotel’s centerpiece restaurant, is in the grand lobby hall, framed by commanding Doric marble columns. It is a go-to for delicious bites, craft cocktails, and networking. Executive Chef Andy Schlosser oversees the menu, which features a mix of elevated small plates.
A few standouts include: Seared sea scallops with black truffle and apple brandy cream gratin; Hamachi Crudo; a 16-hour Tellicherry black peppercorn brisket; and melt-in-your-mouth Georgian cheese bread.
The old steel bank vault at the back of the main hall has been turned into a wine-tasting room. Enjoy a sip, along with a special experience.
Accommodations are spacious and include all the modern amenities you would expect from a luxury boutique hotel.
Many of the 54 guestrooms and suites feature original copper doors complete with brass mail slots. Inside, the décor is pared down and handsome with reserved hues, dapper textiles, metal, leather and dark wood accents, and retro accessories, such as vintage clocks and a black rotary telephone.
Well-behaved dogs are always welcome. You can book a special travel package that includes gourmet treats, a mat, food and water bowls, and local pet-friendly resources.
The Liberty Trust’s location is within walking distance of downtown shopping, galleries, the Historic Roanoke City Market, and breweries like Three Notch’d Brewery.
There’s also a number of other great restaurants, like Frankie Rowland’s Steakhouse. Just a short drive from downtown, try Local Roots for incredible farm-to-table dining, and then to award-winning Brady’s Distillery for a tasting experience of locally crafted spirits, including a new release of a prohibition-style sipping gin.
A stop at Black Dog Salvage offers 44,000 square feet of warehouse and showroom packed with unique architectural finds, antique lumber and upcycled pieces.
