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.

Used with adjustable friendly mattresses

All of our mattresses are adjustable friendly unless specifically noted otherwise.

FOUNDATION HEIGHT

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.

DO YOU NEED A BUNKIE BOARD

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.



WHAT IS IT?
A bunkie board is a flat platform designed to fit between your mattress and bed frame for additional support.
