Do I Need A Bed Frame for a Foam Mattress?

Do I Need A Bed Frame For My Memory Foam Mattress?

Are you a traditionalist, old-school type, buying your Leesa for your guest room so family can visit? Then definitely. Or, do you prefer to keen things to a minimal simplicity? Then no, you don't have to use a bed frame if you don't want one. As long as your floor is a stable, solid surface, your Leesa Mattress is ready to go.

Mattresses traditionally do not include a bed frame. You don't need to have one if you like a low-profile look. A bed frame simply keeps your mattress and your foundation off of the floor. The best thing about a Leesa mattress is that you don't have to have either, you just need a solid surface to place your mattress on, whether it's a slatted frame, a frame with metal rungs, a platform bed or a divan.

Why You Might Want To Keep Your Mattress Off the Floor.

  • Allergens – Keeping your mattress above the floor allows you to clean the spaces above and below it.

  • Dirt, Dust, Pet Hair – Take a look at what you trek through your house in socks. The same stuff lingering on your floor may end up with you in bed.

  • Moisture – A Leesa mattress is designed to breathe. Elevating it off of the floor on a firm, solid surface gives you the best sleeping experience possible.
