The King of Mattresses in Comparison with Other Sizes

A trip to a bedding showroom must leave us wondering why there are so many mattress sizes out there. From the mattress for toddlers’ crib to super king size, why can’t it be one-size-fits-all for every person? According to The Better Sleep Council, each mattress size should fit different needs and situations. Let’s see how the sizes facilitate sleeping and sleepers in comparison with Singapore’s king size mattresses. Learn more about queen size mattresses in Singapore here.

Cribs and mattress sizes for kids

Of course, we usually put an infant in the crib in its first few months after birth instead of sharing bed with them. This is to avoid unwanted accident because infants are still too fragile. Crib-size mattress is needed at this stage. But once the baby starts to grow bigger by the years, it is not unusual for Asian parents to co-sleep with their children. During this time, king-size bed would be perfect because it provides maximum personal sleeping space for everyone. Better sleep means better growth and intelligence for children, and higher quality rest for the parents. It can also avoid toddlers from falling off the bed, which could result in unfortunate injuries.

Guest room or sharing beds

Bigger than crib’s mattress is twin mattress and twin XL, which is taller than regular twin. Usually this mattress is spared for guestroom or bunkbed, resting bed during daytime or school dormitories. Although it is suitable for growing children who are becoming teenagers, for home usage twins are usually not considered long-term, unless you have real space constraint. Even with space problem, it is always better to choose bigger mattress especially if the children are sharing bedroom with their siblings. We can always consult the sellers or their delivery service to know how the kings can fit into our smaller size bedrooms.

Singles and doubles

Next in line is full-size bed for single sleeper and queen-size mattress for couples. Full-size bed is not recommended for couples, because it will only provide crib-size space for each sleepers and the length is not suitable for full-grown adults. Even younger children are now using full-size beds because parents want to make long-term investment where they do not need to change bed size too often. Queen-size is considered suitable for couples who want enough sleeping space, but at the same time want to have extra bedroom space for other activities.

Carefully weigh the pros and cons for the next ten or twenty years by dividing the price of a king-size mattress now with every less-disturbed nights ahead. Even though a queen is more powerful on a chessboard, when it comes to mattresses, a luxurious king of 76” x 80” with an affordable price tag can make a big difference in our sleeping patterns, contributing to a healthier lifestyle. Another king-size option is called California king, which is taller by 4 extra inches.

In conclusion, if we are looking for valuable long-term investment, king-size mattresses should be seriously considered for our bedrooms.

Ways to Identify High Quality Bathroom Accessories

Although many consumers assume that the price determines the quality of any product, this is not always true. Some of the major brands often have sales, where the price of some of their products are available at relatively low prices. Many buyers take advantage of the discounted sales to purchase bathroom accessories and products that were once considered unaffordable to create their dream bathroom design.

Even though it is important to look at price to determine the authenticity of a bathroom accessory, it is equally important to look at other factors. They include a warranty, the store where the products are sold, and customer reviews.

Queen Overtakes the King: 3 Reasons Why A Queen-Size Mattress is Better

Sleep is the essence to a happy life. Imagine if we are deprived of sleep and our mood for the day will be obviously fouled. Do you know that the comfort of our mattress influences a huge part of our sleeping habit? Yes, that’s correct. Therefore, to get optimum quality sleep at night, we must know which mattress to go for and it is none other than the queen-sized mattress. According to Diffen, by the size, cost, and comfort it provides to sleepers, queen-size wins all the way. Here is why Singapore’s queen sized mattress should be your ultimate choice.

Size

Queen-size is commonly known to be a smaller size of king, however the concept here is not that precise. If we take a uniformed measurement, its length is exactly similar and only the width differs around 42 cm. This size is just perfect for single sleeper who wants some extra space in bed or couples who do not mind to share intimate space all the time. Due to its just-nice size, queen-size mattress can easily fit into a master bedroom or even second or third bedroom in an intermediate-size house. The room size requirement is not that huge to fit in a queen-sized mattress or bed due to it being narrower in width than king-size. That is why choosing queen-size is a better choice as it accommodates you similarly with the king-sized bed. Now, that brings us to the next reason of why we should be choosing queen-size, which is the cost.

Cost

When you choose the queen-sized bedding and in that case a queen-size mattress, you will be able to cut cost because the bedding cost much and much cheaper than king-size mattress despite the small difference in width. Since it does not require as much space, you can rent cheaper room or house that is reasonable to accommodate the average-size bed. According to GhostBed, queen-size mattress does not require too many accessories for instance additional pillows. Only two or three are enough as it is smaller in nature. Here, you can just buy a few pillows without feeling that your bed will be too spacious or empty. Also, this size has hit its peak popularity in the US when mattress market record showed that it is the most favoured size by the Americans. Due to the popularity, the bedding accessories for queen-size mattress can be easily found in the market as they are widely distributed to meet demand.

Comfort and coziness

Another reason why queen-size mattress should be your choice is because of its irresistible coziness. Beds should not take up way too much space in your room as it will make you uncomfortable in some areas. Therefore, getting a queen-size will give you quintessential balance of bed and other movable space. As stated by Sleep Advisor, comfort may be a personal preference of a person but if you love the size and your room size is perfect, then go for it.

All in all, queen-size really brings a lot of advantages to those who are buying it. We can cut cost and opt for cheaper ones but also attain full comfort in that perfect mattress size.

How to Select Bathroom Accessories and Designs in Singapore

Why You Should Consider a Travel Bag for Your Kickstarter Singapore Campaign

backpack bags for travel

In the Asian Pacific Region, Singapore leads Mainland China, Thailand, Malaysia, and Hong Kong in international travels. A Singaporean takes about six international trips a year. However, even though they travel more, Singaporean spend fewer nights away of Singapore compared to travelers from the other countries in the region. This probably explains why those who have travel bag and backpack campaigns on Kickstarter Singapore stores meet their financial target, and even get more backers who turn into buyers.

Frequent Travelers Identify Loopholes in Travel Bags

When smart backpacks for travel were introduced to the market, most travelers were awe struck, probably because they did not realize they needed it or that this technology was possible. If you travel a lot, consider some of the challenges you face and ways you can solve some of those problems. For example, some of the travel bag campaigns focus on providing compartments in travel bag to make packing easier and ensure you have easy access to your stuff.

High Demand for Durable Travel Bags

When traveling, your bag is easily damaged during handling, especially since it is moved often from one flight to the next, or even from one car to another. Even bags with wheels to facilitate easy movement eventually wear out. If the travel bag is not hardy, you will end up replacing it often. If you can create a travel bag made from durable material, you are likely to catch the attention of travelers who are frustrated by the quality of bags in the market.

You Can be as Creative as You’d Like

When designing travel bags, you can create different versions for various groups of people. For example, you can have them in different sizes to cater to the needs of those takin a short trip and those going away for a longer time. Some people prefer colorful traveling bags for easy identification at the airport or to suit their style. Others prefer plain simple colors, like black and grey. You can choose your target group based on demand and the possibility of having return clients and referrals based on the quality of your travel bags.

Steps to Follow When Launching Your Kickstarter Travel Bag Campaign

Kickstarter backpack bags for travel

Kickstarter has provided a platform for potential entrepreneurs who are creative and have viable business ideas but need help raising financing for the project. Unfortunately, not every business idea is successfully launched on the site. You have to take steps to ensure your campaign gets the audience and backing it needs to take off. 

Your project needs to be approved

Although Kickstarter is open to anyone with a business idea, the management must approve your idea before it is posted on the site. This is done primarily to maintain the authenticity of the site and ensure only those with vested interests in ensuring product success get access to those willing to support them. 

The backers of the various Kickstarter backpack bags for travel campaigns do so because the site is professionally run. Even though there are no guarantees that the said project will move on as planned, at least the ideas behind the campaign are treated as authentic before being posted. 

Kickstarter mainly looks for innovations that will provide solutions to some of the problems that consumers encounter. If your product draws the attention of those facing a particular challenge, your Kickstarter campaign will most likely be approved. 

Set the funding goal and work towards reaching it

Once your Kickstarter travel bag project is approved, you need to set a target of how much you need and within what period. For example, $50,000 over two months. This amount is not arbitrary. It needs to be based on facts. How much do you need to get this project off the ground? Asking for more than you need could scare off backers or may keep you from meeting your target within the period you have set. 

If you fail to meet your target within the specified time frame, your project will not get the funding, and potential donors will not be able to contribute. If you reach your goal or exceed it, you will receive the funds and go ahead with the project.

Top Features of Travel Backpacks in Singapore Kickstarter Stores

Kickstarter travel backpack Singapore

Travel backpacks are of interest to many people launching Kickstarter campaigns in Singapore. This is probably because of the versatile nature of backpacks, which can be used for travel, work or school. 

The demand for backpacks will always be high, as long as people keep moving from one destination to another, whether for a few days or several weeks. Even when one has other travel bags, carrying a backpack makes sense because it can be used for easy access to items you need to use regularly, including your phone, camera, passport, or wallet. 

Innovators and entrepreneurs are betting on having greater success at designing backpacks over other items. This is evident in the backing the various Kickstarter campaigns get for the great innovations. For example, Bobby Bizz Backpack raised more than $500,000 and is seen as a great business backpack. 

Spacious internal storage

The different backpacks offer various storage options. This feature attracts backers to participate in travel backpack Singapore Kickstarter campaigns. Consumers are always looking for backpacks that offer more space, and those that have compartments are even more acceptable, especially for people carrying sensitive items like cameras. 

Anti-theft properties

While backpacks are convenient for carrying some of your precious possessions when moving around, the risk has been a challenge since anyone can open the zipper and get anything from the bag without your notice. This is especially common when you are in a crowded area. 

Entrepreneurs and innovators with Kickstarter campaigns have introduced designs that make it harder for thieves to get easy access into your backpack. One of the popular design options is removing the zipper from the side or front of the backpack and putting it on the part that lies on your back. This makes it more difficult for anyone to get into your bag without you knowing it. 

The other popular anti-theft feature involves the use of an anti-cut material when making the backpack. While many thieves gain access to the valuables in your backpack through the zipper, others cut the fabric. Having hidden zippers and an anti-cut material encourages more people to buy the backpack. 

Comfortable padded straps

For a long time, backpacks had thin straps, which became uncomfortable when the backpack is heavy. This is a feature many backpack Kickstarter campaigns focus on because it is critical for most, if not all, backpack buyers. Having a padded shoulder pad reduces the strain you feel, especially when you have to carry your backpack all day. 

Adequate cushioning to protect your valuables

People who move around with their laptops, tablets, or even cameras want a backpack that can protect them from damage, especially if there is a possibility of the bag being knocked over. Some Kickstarter Singapore innovators have chosen to provide extra cushioning for regular backpacks so that they can be used for multiple items, rather than only providing this feature for laptop backpacks.

Some even provide compartments with the additional cushioning in between to allow you to carry multiple items without worrying about them rubbing against one another, resulting in scratched surfaces. 

If you frequently use backpacks and wish to start a campaign for backpacks, it is easy to come up with features people need because you understand what your current backpacks lack. As more people opt to work remotely, it has become increasingly necessary to have a multi-purpose backpack for work and travel that is comfortable to carry and ideal for all the items you need to carry with you. 

Choosing the Right Laser Treatment Location

 

When you are considering the many options for laser skin treatment in Singapore, the choice between clinics can be daunting. Many clinics can appear to offer the same treatment, with very little information to differentiate them. This makes it difficult to find the clinic that is the best for you. A quality clinic is one that provides the most up-to-date services combined with a willingness to work with each patient to develop a treatment plan that will deliver incredible, noticeable results. The staff should be friendly and welcoming, and they should have the experience, qualifications, and credentials to put you at ease when you sign up for treatment with them.

Experience

How much experience does the clinic have in serving the needs of its client? More specifically, how much experience do the doctors have in performing these specific procedures? You don’t want to be the first patients a doctor has performed this treatment on. Search for a doctor that has a long history of successful laser skin treatments, along with a list of satisfied former clients. You can use reviews online and in magazines to avoid clinics that lack high-quality, experienced doctors and support staff.

Treatment Options

The clinic you choose should be able to accommodate your skin treatment needs, no matter what they are. Choose a clinic that offers a comprehensive menu of laser treatment options. Any aesthetic clinic worth considering should cover at least the following treatment options: ? Skin rejuvenation that returns youthfulness and smoothness to your skin ? Pigmentation issues from age and sun spots to freckles ? Acne, blemish, and scar removal ? Broken blood vessel removal If the clinic you are considering doesn’t offer the above options and more, look for one that does. The lack of more comprehensive options suggests the clinic hasn’t made laser treatment a priority. This is true even if your needs are served by the treatment options listed on the clinics website.

Accommodation for Your Skin Type

The doctors at your clinic should be able to treat you, no matter what issue you want to have addressed. Laser skin treatments are effective on dark or light skin, and older or younger skin. It can treat skin that shows extreme signs of certain conditions like acne or only traces. Primarily, your clinic should be able to treat you, no matter what issue you may wish to address. Only trust your care to a clinic that is confident in its ability to deliver the results that you want.

Keeps Downtime to a Minimum

The beauty of laser skin treatments is the lack of downtime for most procedures. Your clinic should be able to offer you quick laser treatments with no downtime that work with your schedule. If a clinic can’t work with your scheduling needs, look elsewhere. The best clinics can offer you the flexibility you need to maintain your daily life.

Comfort and Discretion

The quality of treatment should be your first and highest priority. After that, you should look for clinics that can make you feel at home. The clinic you choose should also be able to make you comfortable and relaxed. It should also offer you complete discretion. A clinic should offer a comfortable environment as well as a treatment plan you are satisfied with. That means you should find a clinic that listens to your concerns and provides you a customised treatment plan.

Finding the Right Clinic for You

The aesthetic clinic you go to for laser treatment should have experienced doctors and comprehensive treatment options. The staff should have a passion for providing you with the best and more comfortable experience. The best aesthetic clinics in Singapore put the client’s needs first. Your schedule should not be inconvenienced by long waits and too much downtime. Your laser treatment options should be tailored to accommodate your specific needs.

5 Aspects To Consider While Buying Tiles

The benefit of having a nice home that looks good is half the battle won. To make the place look good all you need are exquisite schematics, ideal flooring, excellent colors and an ambiance that livens up the home. If you go astray with any of the above and more, chances are that your home will be a bit lopsided, both figuratively and literally. To set the tone right, you cannot go wrong with the flooring. There are varieties of options available today here are five aspects to consider while buying tiles.

Weather

Choosing the right flooring is not always an easy ride, you have to factor in the climate. Tropical areas, for instance, are not ideal for hardwood flooring. The moisture content in the atmosphere causes the wood to decay easily resulting in problems down the line. What really works are natural stones like so with vitrified tiles and/or marble. The flipside, however, is walking on the flooring with bare feet once the cold sets in – walk with socks or flip-flops instead of bare feet.

Kitchen & Bathroom

Functionality is the key ingredient to consider for the kitchen. That being said, it does not mean that you need to junk the idea of a good look and opt for something mundane. What really works are quite trendy to use ceramic tiles singapore but and can withstand wear and tear. Granite in this context works rather well as do vitrified tiles. They are easy to maintain, look trendy and pretty much keep the sludge at bay, provided you go the mile in doing your bit. If marble strikes your fancy, Italian marble is the best bet that has the anti skid option as it provides a good grip. Ditto with the bathroom area where this is of vital importance.

Blending

A small home does not need extra fittings like dark tiles – that make the place look rather small. Light colored flooring and the size of the tiles makes an impact. It also gives the appearance of looking larger instead of breaking the blend with the color scheme and the ambiance. Flooring can make a room appear lovely based on what you are going for, for instance, if rustic is the option, slate works rather well as a stone lookalike. The hip and trendy modern look definitely needs marble to keep the flow going, wooden flooring also looks chic.

Maintenance

To keep a home neat and tidy, you need to be on the ball. An occasional tea or an oil spill in the kitchen needs to be attended to immediately. Mosaic flooring has been a favorite over the years, but maintenance takes a chunk of your time to keep it shiny and clean. Naturally, if you are looking for something that offers requires a limited amount of upkeep laminates are the best alternative. Vitrified tiles are the buzz and are easy to maintain. The only consideration is to treat them with care, as they chip easily. Marble and wood though they are trendy, are quite a bother to maintain and since they are water resistant, you will have the time of your life (sic) keeping them free from the elements.

Pricing

The tendency of biting off more than you can chew can be a force when choosing the right set of tiles. Budgeting plays a critical role and while you may have your heart set on something expensive, you need to tone it down a notch. Tiles are available in various price ranges. Choose a range that adds to the aesthetics and works for the home. There may come a time when you may have to be slightly flexible with the budget, just make sure that you do not go over the top. Marble looks great, granite even better, wooden flooring has warmth, ceramic aids in the aesthetics with the gloss, and so on and so forth.

The room or the area may look smaller if you get large tiles laid in them.

5. Though you must take into account the cost factor, you must not succumb to the allure of choosing items that come at very low costs.

The above are easy factors to consider but if you ignore them, you will be making wrong choices. Ultimately, your efforts to enhance the looks of your home may go in vain.

3 Great Bathroom Floor Ideas

Great bathrooms are built with the right set of color coordinates but what really makes them look good are the tiles. That is why it is of extreme importance to get it right the first time, or you may end up with egg on your face. You may even have to pay more down the line if the choice was not good, resulting in moss and sludge along the grouting and on the tiles. Here are a couple of good floor ideas to help you get it right, the first time.

One Size Fits All Rhetoric

This old school of thought is not really on the cards today. What suits a particular bathroom in a friends place may not suit yours, though you can fudge a bit. Size in this context matters considerably, and measurement of the space plays quite a vital role. Aside from covering the floor, bathroom tiles also need to be fixed on the walls. In the bathroom, the floor tiles need to have the anti skid feature which is a basic necessity. Since there are bound to be splashes of water on the floor, this imperative must be on the top of the list. The right color combination also works wonders. If for instance, you are going for a black bathroom color scheme, the floor tiles cannot be too white; you need a quiet blend of colors. Tiles with borders are also pretty to have and you do not have to stick with the same old theme throughout, you can intersperse them to make it look interesting.

Maintenance

Choosing the right fit for the bathroom and the loo area is of prime importance. Aside from the thematic, what really works in this stretch of the home is the maintenance angle. Tiles, as a rule need maintenance. Porcelain is the ideal choices for the bathroom. What you get with this material is solid texture and a rich look. Considering that it is not too heavy on the purse, and proven to be waterproof, it is worth investing. Though they are quite slippery, the possibility of texturing them to suit the location will work. The choice to use smaller tiles also plays quite an imperative role where you cut back on costs, add to the ambiance and still make a mark. The grouting adds to the non-skid surface texture, which is of prime importance for the bathroom. Natural stone has also been quite an ardent choice but again slippery. Sandblasting or textured stone like slate adds to the opulence and definitely merits a mark in the bathroom and toilet area. The only flip side is the cost factor, but if you are going for the kill, this definitely tops the list.

Alternatives

Vinyl flooring gets the bathroom looking neat and tidy. It also cuts back on costs. One rule, however, is to ensure that you maintain it otherwise; chances are that you may not reap the rewards of the quick and cheaper alternative. Laminate is easy to clean, it does have a wood chip base though, and when it connects with water, it will cause problems. Many people like the feel of wood under their feet and if you are going for this in the bathroom, engineered wood is what you need to use. The rule here, ensure that no amount of water should seep through the wood – there should be no gaps in the grouting.

The tiles supplier Singapore will help you with ideas to create a havoc theme for your bathroom. Honestly, the best bet is to go for something that does not cause bubbles or is heavy maintenance.
