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

Do i need to have something as a support between the mattress and the frame?

i just ordered this bed frame and a full size Eco friendly memory foam mattress to use with it. But I am concerned about the mattress to get slipped through the gaps on the frame. I read that if the mattress is twin then we might need some sorta board to hold between the mattress and the frame, but since i am using a full size memory foam, do i still need to put something in between the mattress and the foam? has any one tried it without any board in between them? does the mattress really slips thru the gaps? please let me know . really appreciated

Nope. This is actually your box-spring. If you want your kid's mattress to feel more confy (you will not get the usual flexibility of a full blown-out box spring set (I guess you get what you pay for), simply do what I did for my daughter: buy a memory foam cover and put it on top of the mattress: SHE LOVED IT!

Hope it helps.

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.

Problems with using the connectors as a full size

I have a full size bed that has a wooden frame all the way around it. When I put the two springs and try to attatch the connectors, they won't connect because they are about 2 inches to long. I measured the connectors and they are 16 inches, I was wondering if maybe they gave me the queen/king connectors. If someone could measure their connectors for a Twin/Full and let me know. I love this old bed and I have the foundation set 2 inches from each side and about a 4 inch gap in the middle because the connectors won't work. I am afraid the mattress may sag. Any help on my problem???

Bought mine and set it up yesterday. my connectors are also 16" long, Since I'm using a futon matress, I simply connected to one edge of one side of frame and then to the smaller inside wire on the 2nd frame, which worked better for me in the very small area I had to work with to place this bed.

This is one frame. It comes in two halves that will bolt directly together for to support a twin mattress. If you were to set a full matttress on this - the two halves are set further apart and steel spacers are placed between. good for now - and the apartment later.

answer 5
I am not familiar with the dimensions of the bed you mention, but as long as the existing bed's frame is wide and tall enough so as to not be smaller than the foundation frame you're buying, it should work. For instance, my existing full size frame worked fine with this foundation frame because my wood frame is slightly larger than the metal frame I bought. So my existing bed frame has no structural role now. It just covers the metal frame I bought from view.

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.
