Also asked, can you put a mattress directly on slats?
Slats have been described as the skeleton to support your mattress; however this is not the case for steel slats. They are built to be placed underneath a box spring / foundation but not directly under a mattress. Placing a mattress directly onto metal slats will not work due to excessive spacing between them.
Furthermore, what should I put under my mattress? You can put the mattress on a boxspring.This raises the mattress up off the ground and provides the solid support that a mattress needs. This is usually used in conjunction with a bed frame to keep everything off the floor and provide a little storage space under the bed if necessary.
Also to know, can you put a mattress on a bed frame without a boxspring?
Platform bed slats are designed to support your mattress without the use of box springs. Adding them will just give you two foundations and a bed that looks like a Dagwood sandwich. However, some metal slat kits are designed to act as a bed frame and support for a box spring and mattress set.
Is a bed frame necessary?
A bed frame can give you storage space under the bed and/or make it easier to clean around. It's difficult to mop a hardwood floor if you have a bare mattress on it. It helps give airflow around the mattress, preventing it from getting musty.
