It depends on how high you want your bed to be. It comes up 14", bed frame only. You can do either but I use just the mattress.

And your mattress will work on it, most likely.

You can use by itself or with box spring, but the frame is meant to be used without the boxed spring. The bed will be very high if you add the boxed spring.

Both box and mattress will "fit" but may be just a bit tall. The frame is about six inches higher than a regular frame so this small amount may not matter. Yes you can use ANY (full or twin) mattress but note that if you are buying something new - the mattress store wil convince you that your warranty may be voided if you don't buy the matching box. I did buy new and did not buy the box and am quite happy. I dont' think that I would mind the extra height of the box if it were put on the bed

Question

Can I use this platform with 4" memory foam mattress?

Hi I'm thinking of buying this bed frame for my 4" memory foam mattress, but I'm not so sure 4" is too thin for this bed frame or not. I know some people bought this frame for 8" or higher memory foam mattress but I prefer 4" foam mattress. please give me some advice whether I have to buy additional plywood bed base for more even support to use this frame with my 4" memory foam bed. Thank you so much!

There is no relationship between mattress height and whether it will work with this frame. For even support, I would recommend using plywood sheeting on the frame if you are not going to use a box spring.

We have a standard inner-spring mattress, not particularly thick but not memory foam either. I wouldn't think you'd need a plywood base if you have the frame at the smaller size option (Twin, Queen). If you have it at the larger size (Full, King) the plywood might be a good idea as there is less support for the mattress in the middle with the extender bars installed.

I don't think this would work with a 4" mattress. Probably the best solution would be to find a bunky board, like the ones used for bunkbeds (in leiu of a box springs) to put between the mattress & frame. I am guessing that the 4" mattress is probably a "topper" (I have one), and that it is not intended to be a mattress. I think it would slide through the slats.

Will it fit inside a wooden bed frame

I have an antique bed frome with wooden slots. Will this metal frame fit inside my wooden frame if I remove all the slots?

Also, is this meant to be used as a temporary guest bed or with a permanent bed?

answer 1
I can answer the second question. This is meant to be a permanent support frame. But it's pretty easy to put together or disassemble, so you could use it temporarily and knock it down when it wasn't needed. The box it ships in is 1/4 the size of a twin mattress, give or take, so storage space needed would be minimal.

answer 2
I suspect not, but hope you can get more answers to give you more hope.

An antique bed frame is sometimes a very tight fit for the mattress itself but to get this new frame set down in the middle of the old frame may be quite a trick. She slat support edges will take up room that the new frame will want to occupy. I know of a particular antique bed frame that I would gladly rebuild around this frame just to not have to wrestle with getting the mattress into the old antique. But the key word would be "rebuild".

I use the frame in full-size "mode" and it holds 2 people (about 320 pounds combined weight) just fine. I can't speak to the Dorel mattress in particular, but I use a Slumber1 eight-inch foam mattress on the frame. It fits great. I have used it for a year and half now with no issues or complaints.

Yes, the full size is just as sturdy - there are metal connects, the frames aren't going anywhere or moving out of place either - I have an 8" mattress on it and it looks great. It's high enough that it looks like there's a box spring underneath my mattress when there isn't - of course, I do recommend a bed skirt though, just so it gives that classic look of having a box spring - otherwise everyone can see the metal legs underneath.

Absolutely! The frame comes in 2 pieces, each piece has 6 legs (3 legs) each side so essentially they stay up on their own the brackets for the middle just keep the 2 pieces securely together. The extender for the full size just holds the 2 pieces in place a little further from each other.

You're mattress you have will be fine. They say a Pillow top is good for them but My son's is not a pillow top, but a very good Sealy. That Frame is Much better without a boxspring. More comfortable. I just wouldnt' have to thin of a mattress on it.

It's been awhile since I made my purchase, but the box is bulky. As long as you don't have to carry it far, you should be ok. I handled ours myself. I will warn you that it is heavy though, so be prepared. Any frame will be heavy though, so I wouldn't let that keep you from buying this.

Yes!! This frame is for you! Each side of the frame simply unfolds and then you attach four diagnal supports to small bolts and tighten the wingnuts. I would recommend - some wire cutters or maybe even toenail clippers to cut the plastic ties holding the new frame together in the box and possibly a small hammer or rubber mallet (or anything similar) to "encourage" the diagnal support to hook on the bolt. But no fear - this frame is one you can easily do. No other wrenches - screwdrivers or anything needed.
