Build the Foundation for Better Sleep

May 13, 2015

Mattress Selection

Mattress shopping? It’s recommended to purchase a complete sleep set so you have the best foundation for your new mattress. Foundations help preserve the life of your mattress and offer the support you need to get a good night’s sleep. Not sure where to start? Weigh your foundation options to make a solid decision.

Basic Foundation Options

  1. Regular Height Flat Foundation
    A regular height flat foundation is built to be strong, rigid, and non-yielding to provide the ultimate support for your mattress. The height is approximately 9” tall, but keep in mind, standard flat foundations are not adjustable.
  2. Low Profile Flat Foundation
    A low profile foundation offers all of the benefits of a regular height foundation, but it’s usually 5 1⁄2 “ to 6” in height. A lower foundation reduces the overall height of your new sleep set. So if the height of your mattress is a concern, then a low profile foundation may be best for you. 

  3. Lifestyle or Adjustable Foundation
    A customizable bedroom experience can make a huge difference in how you sleep. Whether you are catching up on emails, watching television, or just lounging in bed, an adjustable foundation will help you find the perfect position for optimal comfort and support.
