Why Do You Need a Mattress Base?

Sometimes called an Ensemble, a mattress set is often made up of a box base with a mattress placed on top.  While the quality of mattress is the most critical element of an ensemble, you shouldn’t ignore the state of your base.

A mattress base is often a wooden box with a board or slats covered with material that matches the mattress.  Some have internal springs which helps increase the life of your mattress.  If your base is in poor condition, it won’t support a mattress properly and will potentially cause you discomfort.

So if you are in the market for a new mattress, make sure you consider the state of your mattress base as well as your mattress!
