Do I need a foundation with my Birch mattress?
The simple answer is yes. To properly support your Birch mattress, we recommend either a solid platform bed or a slatted foundation with no more than 5 inches between each slat.
The Birch Natural Mattress and Birch Luxe Natural Mattress are both designed differently than the traditional innerspring mattresses most people may be used to.
Instead of using interwoven coil wires and a dense foam construction, the Birch natural mattresses rely on individually wrapped steel coils and latex layers to provide maximum comfort and minimize motion transfer. This difference in design, though, requires a few adjustments in the way you might think about support.
For both Birch mattress models, we recommend avoiding the use of a traditional box spring directly under your mattress. Instead, we suggest using either a solid platform bed or a slatted foundation with no more than 5 inches of space between each slat.
Here are a few great options from us that will ensure your Birch mattress is properly supported.
