General Overview

  • Kingsdown offers five different mattress types spanning 10 collections to accommodate a wide range of sleepers.
  • Kingsdown mattresses are available nationwide from a large selection of online and brick-and-mortar retailers.
  • Signature bedMatch technology generates a sleeper data profile for every customer that tests out a Kingsdown mattress, which can be handy for pinpointing individual preferences like firmness, height, and comfort layer composition.

Cons

  • Very little information is available for Kingsdown in terms of composition, specifications, available sizes, and other details. This may make it difficult for shoppers to research different products.
  • Based on our retailer research, the average Queen-size Kingsdown mattress (any collection) has a starting price-point of $1,300 to $1,600. This is above-average compared to the typical price-points of most mattress types.

  • Warranty Details

    Kingsdown offers a 10-year limited warranty on all mattresses in their current lineup with the exception of the My Side mattress; warranty information for this model is currently unavailable.

    1. Warranty coverage begins on the original date of purchase, and will be nonprorated for the duration of the warranty. During the coverage period, Kingsdown will, at their sole discretion, repair or replace all mattresses that are deemed defective.
    2. In the event of an irreparable mattress defect, Kingsdown will replace the original model with a comparable substitute. Replacing the mattress will not extend the warranty, nor result in the creation of a new warranty. Owners will be responsible for all shipping and handling costs associated with replacing their mattress.
    3. Warranty coverage is contingent on proper foundational support. Per Kingsdown: “Proper support [is defined as] the use of a frame or platform which includes appropriate center support with a center leg resting firmly on the floor. An acceptable alternative would be five rigid cross support slats with a center leg, centered left and right and head to foot, resting firmly on the floor; or a solid platform surface with a rigid center. An improper support frame and lack of center support will void your product warranty”.
    4. The Kingsdown warranty will cover the following product defects:
      • Visible sagging or indentations in the sleep surface measuring one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper that do not result from owner misuse or improper foundational support.
      • Manufacturing defects related to the cover, including cracked or broken zippers.
      • Squeaking or rattling coils, or metal components that protrude from the sides of the mattress.
    5. The warranty will not cover the following:
      • Normal increases in foam or latex softness that do not affect the material’s pressure-relieving abilities, or sagging or indentations in the sleep surface that do not one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper. These issues are considered normal wear and tear.
      • Repair or replacement requests that occur due to changes in the owner’s comfort preferences.
      • Cuts, tears, burns, stains, and other types of physical damage that directly result from owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
    6. Warranty coverage is exclusively extended to original owners who purchase their mattress directly Kingsdown or an authorized retailer. Anyone who buys or acquires their mattress from the original owner or an unauthorized retailer will do so ‘as is’, and will not be eligible for warranty protection.
