Why a Bed Foundation is Important for You and Your Mattress

Even the best mattresses need a strong foundation.

No, it doesn’t need to be made out of bedrock, but it does need a strong support underneath it. Not only is this going to help the mattress in the long term, but a good foundation will help give you a better night of sleep, as well. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and by goose and gander we mean you and your mattress.

So, here are a few reasons why it is always important to get a mattress foundation. And remember, if you are having trouble picking out a mattress – or the right foundation – stop by or give us a call to talk to one of our mattress experts!

Comfort Control

While mattresses are important in the overall comfort you feel when you lie down to sleep, your mattress isn’t alone in cradling your body to sleep night after night.

A foundation actually does the brunt of the work, and without one, your mattress just isn’t going to feel as comfortable. Imagine if you cut half of the soles of your shoes off … they probably wouldn’t be too comfortable, would they? Of course not, and you just ruined a good pair of shoes!

Don’t make that mistake with your mattress. And apologize to your poor shoe while you are at it.

Elevation Control

If you are looking for a foundation that provides a level of customization, you probably want an adjustable bed base that allows you to sleep, work on your laptop, and relax with other pre-set positions. These foundations let you adjust how high the head and foot of the bed are, meaning you can personalize your levels to where you need them to be. We have a wide variety of adjustable beds to try, as well, so stop in and see which one works best for you!

Circulation Control

Why a Bed Foundation is Important for You and Your Mattress

“Psh” you might say. “Psh, I’m going to be a rebel and just put my mattress on the ground without a foundation, everything will be fine. I’m too cool for mattress school.”

Well. No. Everything won’t be fine. Air circulation is really important with mattresses, and if you put a mattress directly on the floor you are greatly limiting its air flow. That makes your mattress a perfect habitat for mold, and it also means that your bed is going to be warmer than a nice, cool, well-circulated bed on a foundation.

If you want to sleep in a warm, sweaty, moldy, rain forest of a mattress, well, that is your prerogative. Just know that these problems could easily be solved with a fantastic foundation, and that we can easily help you find a foundation that works perfectly with your new mattress.

Control Over Life and Death

Well, almost. There’s another reason that getting a foundation is important, and it does have to do with life! It’s just the life of your mattress, not yours.

A foundation is going to help your mattress last as long as possible. Mattresses aren’t yearly purchases – or at least they really shouldn’t be – so getting a correctly fitting foundation will help your mattress last night after night after night and help you get the most out of your purchase -- the most mattress for your moolah, one might say!
