Bed Bases
Bed Base Types Explained

Slatted Base

This is the most common mattress support system used with bed frames. It features wooden slats, usually made of pine, which are fixed within the frame. A larger bed will also have a support bar down the middle of the bed. This gives extra stability to the bedstead and your mattress.

Sprung Edge

Sprung Edge bases will soften the feel of even a very firm mattress and has the same number of springs as usual mattress of the same size. The springs of a sprung edge base are on top of the base which is like having two mattresses next to each other. This makes the sleep system quite soft at the edges and one should not sit on the edge of a spring edge mattress for too long if it can be avoided.

Sprung Slatted

Slats are the most common type of mattress support system used on bedsteads. A base with sprung slats features curved wooden slats, usually made of beech, which sit within the frame.  A larger bed will have a double spring unit, one on each side, supported by a central rail, which eliminates roll together and ensures you will not be disturbed when your partner gets out of bed.

Platform Top

Platform top bases contain no springs and the mattress is resting on a solid platform which makes for a firmer sleep system. The extent of the firmness will depend on the mattress.
