If you want to get a great night’s sleep, then it’s probably time to upgrade your mattress. For most of us, we’re sleeping on something that’s far too uncomfortable, leaving us with aches, pains, and restlessness during the night.
Memory foam mattresses are excellent for many people, thanks to their cradling material that helps usher you into blissful dreamland. However, because the foam itself isn’t as rigid as an innerspring bed, you need extra support. That’s where a mattress foundation comes in.
Are you a bit crafty? Do you like DIY projects? Then you might want to make your own one and you must want to know how to build a memory foam mattress foundation!
Today, we’re going to look at how you can build your own mattress foundation for a memory foam mattress. Whether you’re upgrading your bed or you want a better way to sleep on your current one, this foundation can help you get the most out of your memory foam.
Why Memory Foam Mattress Foundation is Required?
Traditionally, mattresses will sit upon a box spring, which then sits on top of a bed frame. However, what if you don’t have a box spring? Most bed frames aren’t designed to carry the load of the mattress in the middle, meaning that if you have a memory foam bed, you’ll wind up sagging all the way to the floor.
If you have a box spring, you can definitely use that, but building a foundation can enable you to get better results. Also, if you want to lower the height of your bed, you’ll need to ditch the box spring altogether. Finally, if you don’t have a bed frame, then making a foundation will help you out with storage and a better aesthetic for your bedroom.
Built vs. Store Bought: Which is Better?
Technically speaking, you can buy a foundation from the store (or online) and assemble it yourself. However, you can usually save a lot of money by building it on your own, provided that you already have the tools. If you’re missing things like nails, wood glue, and a hammer, then DIY craftsmanship may not be the best option.
Another benefit of building it yourself is that you can customize the size, height, and appearance of your foundation. Also, you can reinforce it so that it will last longer. All too often, store-bought foundations can crack or break under pressure.
