Did you know you spend about a third of your life sleeping? Having the right mattress can make all the difference in the time you spend awake.
Which type of mattress would be best for you and your sleep? Here are some facts that may help you decide. Please keep in mind, though, that each mattress is constructed differently and the comfort level of each mattress will be different for each individual person. Having the right mattress can make all the difference in the time you spend awake.
Supporting your mattress with the right foundation is just as important as the mattress itself! You can choose between a foundation, a box spring, or an adjustable base.
We highly recommend purchasing the foundation or box spring made specifically to complement your particular mattress to ensure the manufacturer’s warrant is not voided due to insufficient support.
There are options for each size of foundation or box spring, as shown below. Some sizes are in one piece and some are available in two pieces to accommodate navigating smaller spaces.
Most foundations are available in two different heights. This allows you to decide how tall the bed will be. With a taller mattress, a low-profile foundation can even out the height.
If an adjustable base is your style, you have to decide which features are important to you.
Some mattresses or base options are required to rest on a flat surface with no added flexibility. In this case, a bunkie board is recommended.
