Finding the Best Support for Your Memory Foam Mattress
If you are currently sleeping on a memory foam mattress or are planning on buying one, it’s important to consider what you will need in order to support it! There are many types of foundations and bed frames available, but when it comes to memory foam, some are better choices than others. Let’s take a look at the different products available, and which ones will work best with your memory foam mattress!
Many people use foundations for their mattresses in order to add some height to their bed. Because memory foam mattresses are heavier than your everyday spring mattress, it is necessary to purchase a foundation that supports the extra weight.
If you currently own or are planning on purchasing a box spring, make sure that it offers enough support for your memory foam mattress. The best kinds of box springs to support a memory foam mattress are those that include a medium density fiberboard in the top layer. MDFs provide extra support and even distribution for the weight of the mattress.
If you do not own a box spring, we highly recommend purchasing a spring free foundation for your memory foam mattress. A handcrafted foundation that is at least 8” tall is your best bet! Instead of using springs for support, these kinds of foundations almost always have the medium density fiberboard needed to withstand the weight of a memory foam mattress. Check out the Dormia 8” Standard Foundation from Olejo Stores! The foundation is constructed from Black Spruce, a tight grain, slow-growth tree that produces strong and durable wood.
Depending on your personal preference and the environment of your bedroom, there are many different kinds of bed frames that will work well with your memory foam mattress.
Platform beds and bed frames with slats always provide great support for memory foam mattresses because the wood used in them are able to hold the weight. But if you are looking for a simpler, less expensive product to support your mattress, a metal bed frame is a great option!
Metal bed frames are designed to support box springs and foundations with a spring mattress on top. When you are going to purchase a metal frame for a memory foam mattress, make sure that the frame has extra legs. The extra legs on a metal bed frame help to carry the weight of a foundation and memory foam mattress. Additionally, metal frames with legs on each side and in the middle help to distribute the weight evenly. In order to receive the ultimate support while using a metal bed frame, you must have a foundation beneath your memory foam mattress!
