Frequently asked questions
A bed base is designed to give your mattress optimal support and raises your sleeping surface to an ideal height. Bed bases can either be adjustable (like our Lineal adjustable base) or static (like our mattress foundation). Both types can be used alone or on top of a bed frame. The only exception is platform beds, which are compatible with our Lineal adjustable base, but don’t require a separate mattress foundation.
Bed bases typically don’t come with a headboard, although a separate headboard can be attached to any standard metal frame that your mattress foundation can sit on.
A bed frame typically comes with some type of headboard and can be made of wood, metal, or upholstered in fabric or leather. There are a variety of bed frame styles to choose from, but a bed frame’s purpose is more decorative than strictly functional. Some people also use their bed frames for added storage space under the bed, either with built-in drawers or under-bed organizers.
All of our bed frames, with the exception of our Santorini, Porto, Copenhagen, Valencia, and Sydney platform beds, are compatible with 4.75" to 5" foundations (platform beds do not require a foundation). We do not recommend pairing any of our bed frames with a foundation taller than 5", as a taller foundation will be visible above the side rails.
All of our bed frames, with the exception of our Sydney and Valencia platform beds, are compatible with the Lineal adjustable base.
Our bed frames can be paired with any Saatva mattress. The Santorini, Porto, Copenhagen, and Valencia platform beds cannot be used alone with Saatva HD or Zenhaven mattresses, as these mattresses require solid support. In order to pair these platform bed frames with Saatva HD or Zenhaven, you must cover the slats with a solid material, such as plywood.
Headboards can be purchased separately and attached to most standard metal bed frames or platform bed bases.
Adjustable bases work with most open-cavity bed frames without the need for a foundation or box spring. Our Lineal adjustable bed base is compatible with our open-cavity bed frames and Santorini, Porto, and Copenhagen platform bed frames.
If you want to raise your air mattress off the floor, you can either put it on a foundation or box spring or a platform bed with a solid base.
Since most standard bed frames have support slats, you have to place a solid surface like ¾" plywood or a bunkie board on top of the slats to give adequate support for an air mattress.
In general, standard bed frames should be able to support both the weight of its compatible mattress size plus the weight that a conventional mattress can hold, about 250 pounds per side.
If you have a heavy-duty mattress (like our Saatva HD) that’s designed for sleepers who weigh between 300 to 500 pounds per side, you might consider reinforcing it with an additional layer of support or a heavy duty mattress foundation. Our Saatva HD foundation is available to use specifically with our Saatva HD mattress.
You can also add a bunkie board or plywood over your regular mattress foundation, box spring, or over your slatted platform bed frame to give it more support.
If you prefer a bed that sits higher, the best place to start is your mattress. A thicker mattress, like our Saatva HD which sits 15.5" high or our Saatva Classic in the 14.5" height option, will give your bed added height.
Then comes the foundation. Our mattress foundation comes in two height options, 4.75" or 8.75". Keep in mind that Saatva bed frames are only meant to house foundations that are 5" or lower. A taller foundation will be visible along the side rails of our bed frames.
