Wood Foundations For Mattresses


3″ or 8″ Thick Traditional Slatted Wood Foundations

Wood Foundation Cutaway

These 3″ or the traditional 8″ thick foundations are made from cabinet grade,untreated spruce wood. There is an airspace of about  2″ to 2.5 inches in between each slat for breathe ability.  The Manufacturer also uses 100% organic cotton flannel fabric (ticking) made in South Carolina, in our  diamond pattern covering. On the inside of the cotton flannel ticking there is a layer of organic wool.

These 3″ foundations help put the mattress closer to the floor.This is good for babies going from the crib to a twin. The 8″ foundations put you up higher.Wood foundations allows the mattress to breath easily, and also work the same way as a platform wood bed with slats. Older people like the 8″ thick foundation because its easier to get in and out of bed. Calculate what size will fit best for your headboard as well. You might not want to take away the headboard with an 8″ foundation, but rather use a 3″ thick one instead.

The Organic Mattress Store foundations come in 2 depths. 3″, and 8″. The 3″ are designed for bunk beds, but can be used on any metal or wood bed frame. Again,the 3″ puts the mattress lower to the ground.The 8″ is standard. If you already have a platform bed,a futon frame, or a bunk bed you may not need a foundation at all. Remember to measure from the bottom of your bed frame up the headboard, to see how much foundation you will need, without allowing a gap in the headboard for your pillows to go thru. This particular foundation usually goes with the Organic Mattress Store Private Label: The Key West, The Key Largo, The Coconut Grove, and the Waverly Innerspring mattresses.
