You do not need a foundation with your mattress, as many mattresses can be placed directly on the floor, but we do recommend them.
Placing your mattress directly on the floor can lead to dirt and moisture build-up, resulting in premature wear and tear.
Plus, it makes it hard for air to escape, which can lead to night sweats and overheating.
While box springs were once popular, they’re now a less desirable option, as they’re not compatible with foam beds.
Foam beds need a solid or slatted foundation to rest on, so they work best with more modern mattress foundations or even bed
frames like platform beds. Hybrid mattresses are also best supported by solid or slatted foundations, whereas
innerspring mattresses can work with box springs or modern mattress foundations.
