THE RIGHT FOUNDATION

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.

A foundation provides firmer support and requires a bed frame.
