Do I Need a Bed Frame for a Memory 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. Is this for you and you like to keep 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 the Leesa Foundation (designed specifically for Leesa and Leesa Hybrid mattresses), a slatted frame, a frame with metal rungs, a platform bed or a frame with a bunkie board. The Leesa Bed Frame was designed to work together with a Leesa or Leesa Hybrid mattress and a Leesa Foundation for a complete set. But, you might want to think about a few things about putting your mattress on the floor:

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 – Not a regular Swifferer? 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.
