The Beautyrest Black Flat Foundation is an affordable option to provide your mattress with long term, high quality support. A box spring foundation goes underneath your mattress and on top of your bed frame. It is essential to have this support in between to prevent your mattress from sagging and breaking down over time. Most manufacturer warranties are void without a proper foundation like a box spring. Not using one will cost you comfort, time and and the life of your mattress.
The Beautyrest Black Flat Foundation measures approximately 8″-9″ high and is ideal for most mattress heights and is most commonly paired in stores. Depending on your preferences and your height, if you have an extra plush mattress and a higher bed frame, then you may consider a low profile box spring foundation instead. With the Beautyrest Black Flat Foundation, you know you are purchasing a premium affordable foundation that is designed to resist sagging and provide reliable consistent support.
Mattress foundations are now a standard in proper bed support. A quality foundation helps to maintain the structural integrity of the mattress, which in turn, increases longevity. You should never put a new mattress on an old foundation. Even if you don’t see any sagging in your old foundation, it’s usually there and will affect your level of support and the lifespan of your mattress. The type of foundation you need often depends on the type of mattress used; sometimes, the manufacturer produces a foundation specifically designed to complement a mattress.
Reasons why foundations are important:
Foundations are used to support foam mattresses, helping to distribute the weight from the mattress evenly. It is important to consult your local Best Mattress sleep experts as different mattress materials need different kinds of foundations. As a rule of thumb, box springs should never be used for any latex or memory foam mattresses. Slat foundations are acceptable for memory foam mattresses, but the slats should be no more than eight inches apart.
- Mattresses made with micro coils or innersprings need firmer foundations instead of box springs, in order to prevent premature sagging. However, depending on the mattress construction, some give might be necessary for the mattress to conform to your body.
- Adjustable bed bases allow you to control the elevation of the head and foot of the bed to provide the most comfort for your specific needs. They work best with innerspring, foam and air mattresses.
- A box spring base has metal springs in it that move along with the springs in a mattress. This provides a more cushioned feel for firmer mattresses because the springs absorb the stiffness.
- A platform foundation can be used with most types of mattresses and provide very firm support as well as stability. They often come with built-in storage and have a clean, modern look for aesthetic appeal. However, platforms offer little to no give.
- The reason that mattress manufacturers have shifted from box springs to foundations is that foundations provide thicker, stronger support for your body. They absorb more of the weight and distribute it evenly, which is better for your back.
- Foundations tend to be cheaper than box springs, so many retailers include them with mattresses – it’s a quick fix. However, the wrong foundation can negate the benefits of a good mattress, so be informed before you invest.
Foundations VS Box Springs
Foundations offer superior support for a wide variety of mattresses, including memory foam, latex, innerspring, and airbed mattresses because the solid surface helps to prevent premature sagging of the mattress. A platform bed is a piece of furniture that doesn’t require a foundation or box spring. With this type of bed, you put your mattress directly on the platform. Platform beds are typically made of wood and contain a series of wooden slats that run across the bed.
