However, with so many options, buying a bed based on your double bed can be an overwhelming task. Pairing your mattress with the right bed base can ensure maximum comfort and longevity all while looking stylish like king single mattress.

In this post, we will explore the key factors to consider when buying a bed base and the benefits you can enjoy.

Why Do I Need A Bed Base?

The goal with any double bed base is to provide a good foundation for your mattress. Poor support will leave you with a sagging mattress in a matter of years, no matter the quality. Furthermore, a sagging mattress and lack of support can lead to back and neck pain, stiff joints and headaches.

While many people do not think that the bed base is important, placing your mattress on the floor comes with a host of side effects such as:

Inadequate Air Flow

A good bed base will be raised high enough from the ground to ensure that there is adequate airflow under your mattress. This will maintain the firmness of the mattress and ensure that it does not retain moisture.

Having a mattress on the ground, especially in humid climates can result in mould growth and a musty smell.

Dust Exposure

Dust and other allergens can accumulate on the floor and under a mattress. This is especially harmful to those with allergies and asthma as prolonged exposure to these particles can lead to respiratory problems over time.

A bed base offers the additional benefit of ensuring your mattress is raised off the ground and away from these contaminants.


As with any piece of furniture, a bed base is subject to wear and tear over time. Having a bed base can offer additional support and will help to prolong the lifespan of your mattress.

Understanding Bed Base Types

There are many different styles out there that you can choose from when buying a bed base. Deciding on the type you would like to use can be very important for overall comfort, especially if you already have an existing mattress. There are two main types of bed bases. Platform bed bases (or box spring bases), and bed frames.

Bed Frames

Bed frames come in a wide variety of styles, finishes and shapes. They are most known for combining a headboard, base and footboard. While they provide a more stylised option, not all mattresses are best suited for a bed frame.
