Things to keep in mind:

  • For queen, king, and California king mattresses: Platform beds and slat systems need at least one centre support beam. 
  • Though not ideal, you can place your mattress directly on the floor if there is no risk of moisture buildup. Do not place your mattress directly on a concrete floor.
  • A base with curved slats might make your mattress feel softer than intended. If that's the case, place a plywood sheet on top of the slats. This can help distribute the weight across the whole base, increasing firmness.
