Have Foundation Questions?
No Problem. We Can Help!

You’ve decided on the perfect mattress and bed frame, but you’re not finished designing your bed yet! Whether you’ve decided on a metal bed frame or a solid hardwood platform bed, the next step is ensuring you choose the right foundation to sleep soundly and keep your mattress securely in place. When selecting your foundation, the options can seem endless and complicated, but it’s important to choose the right one. A mattress foundation not only adds height and support to prevent your mattress from shifting and sagging, but can also keep your mattress clean, help it retain its shape longer, and allow airflow to get a cooler night’s sleep.

Purchasing a mattress set with a new foundation from Denver Mattress will not only ensure warranty coverage, but also will ensure you get the longest comfort life from your mattress. Make sure you choose the right foundation with our easy guide to finding the perfect match for your mattress, bed frame, and lifestyle.


Standard Foundation

A standard foundation with just the right height will feel perfectly at home with your memory foam or spring mattress. Best for those in search of a traditional bed profile, the 9" solid state foundations from Denver Mattress are paired with standard mattresses to provide ultimate support and durability.


Low Profile Foundation

For easier access getting into and out of bed, a low-profile foundation is the right choice. With the same construction as a standard foundation but with a height of only 5 ½", a low-profile foundation creates a comfortable sleeping oasis that’s as laidback as you.


Mini Foundation

Platform beds are already strong and sturdy enough to hold your mattress in place, but make sure you get a mini foundation to keep your mattress from sagging between slats in order to retain its original shape. Our 2 ½" hardwood mini foundations provide the extra support you need with a platform bed.


Ergo & Adjustable Bases

Sometimes sleeping in one position night after night can become a little boring. If you like to have options when it comes to your sleeping style, try an ergo or adjustable base instead of a traditional foundation. Ergo or adjustable bases are designed for ultra flexibility. Adjust your mattress up or down under your head and knees for a customized sleep experience that will ensure you have personalized comfort whether you’re sleeping or just relaxing in front of the TV. Be sure to confirm that your mattress is Adjustable Compatible.


Smart Base

If you need extra floor space beneath your bed for keeping belongings at bay, a space base is the best choice for you. A tall 14" platform frame will support your mattress directly while also providing extra storage underneath. This is a great space-saving option for those who don’t want a bulky bed.


Split Queen Foundation

If you want a traditional foundation, but are a little worried about the move, a split foundation is a smart choice! With the same construction as a standard foundation, a split queen foundation consists of two pieces for easy maneuvering around tight corners and hallways or up staircases. A split queen foundation from Denver Mattress is available in a standard 9" or a low-profile 5½" option.
