We've all wondered if there's a reason for all the different styles of bed frames. But Does a Bed Frame Make a Difference in Comfort? Turns out that comfort actually starts with a good bed frame. Here's our guide on how to choose which one is right for your mattress.
Divan bases are available as a solid base or a spring base. A solid base is going to add extra support to the mattress giving it a firmer feel. Whereas a spring base will give your mattress more of a bouncy feel. Depending on what mattress you have and what your comfort preferences are will decide which base is right for you.
Slatted Bed Frame
Slatted bed frames are by far the most popular choice of frame. And for good reason. They offer support for the mattress without altering the firmness. Because the slats have gaps between them weight can be evenly distributed across the mattress. Reducing the risk of the mattress sagging.
Bed Frame Care
Over time, just like a mattress, a bed frame becomes worn. It can start to lose its structural properties and put a lot of strain on the mattress. This will eventually lead to the mattress becoming lumpy due to inconsistent support from the frame.
As a rule of thumb, you should change your mattress every 8 years and ideally, your bed frame too. Many of us keep the same bed frame until we don't like how it looks or it breaks. Refreshing your bed frame as regularly as your mattress is important to keep the overall comfort. If the bed frame is lacking support so will the mattress.
