Why do you need to pay attention to your bed base

If you haven’t given much consideration to your bed base, it might be the right time to do so. A good bed base complements your mattress and gives you the perfect amount of support. Additionally, a wooden bed base is designed to lengthen the life of your mattress by allowing for proper ventilation. Read on to find out more advantages of a good timber bed base.

Durability
Strong and durable, a wood bed frame is easily the most versatile of all bed bases. There are a wide variety of stylish designs that are made to save space, making wooden bed bases perfect if you have a smaller room. You can also get them made to order in the wood of your choice. The sturdy Australian pine and Tasmanian oak are premium wood choices that increase the longevity of your bed frame.

Craftsmanship
Woodwork is as much an art as it is a science. Each element of a piece of furniture is carefully designed, turned out, joint and then lacquered to create a masterpiece deserving the prime place of honour in your bedroom. One can hardly say the same about box-spring bed bases. If you are a connoisseur of good decor and would like your furniture to be an extension of your personality, a wood bed base is a right choice.

Compatibility
Wooden bases are generally compatible with a wide variety of mattresses. You can use them with memory foam, latex hybrid, and innerspring mattresses. On the other hand, an innerspring mattress is the only type that is compatible with a box-spring bed base.

Support
A bed base made of wood has lesser give than ones that are of the box-spring type. In essence, this means that while a wood bed base provides firm support, the latter offers more bounce. Much like Goldilocks, you will need to find a sweet spot on the range of support that your bed can provide you. A mattress with greater bounce is helpful if you sleep on your side, and it can reduce back pain. A bed with firm support can facilitate a neutral spine position while sleeping and will not hinder smooth blood circulation. Generally, a medium-firm bed system works best to alleviate back pain. 

A wooden base can be instrumental to achieve an appropriate level of firmness. The spacing between the slats determines how supportive the base is. If the slats are set with 2-3 inches between them, the bed provides a higher degree of support than if they are set wider apart. You achieve the right level of support by combining the base with an appropriate type of mattress. For example, if the base is quite firm, you can use it with a softer mattress, or if the base allows for some bounce, you can opt for a firmer mattress. Try out a few permutations and pick the one best suited for you.

In conclusion
On average, humans spend about 300,000 hours on their beds. Be it for sleep or for relaxing with your phone or a book, or even to bond with your partner – your bed determines the quality of your lifestyle. Check with your bed supplier about mattress compatibility before you invest in a sound sleep system.
