What type of bed frame should I use with the Endy Mattress?

Box spring vs slatted foundation

You can use the Endy Mattress with most bed frames, but we recommend using it on a traditional box spring or directly on a slatted base with your preferred frame.

Why? Because both a box spring and a slatted base provide you with adequate support while ensuring the mattress can breathe. This is important for distributing body heat away from you, and wicking moisture out of the mattress so you can remain cool and dry through the night.

The Endy Mattress is also compatible with adjustable frames designed for foam mattresses. Some adjustable beds can be placed on top of slatted foundations or solid bed frames.


If you're looking for a firmer feel, a box spring provides support across the entire bottom surface of the mattress, making for a more supported sleep experience.

For a softer feel, a slatted foundation will support you while allowing for more give, creating a slightly plusher sleep experience. Please note that if you use a slatted foundation, the slats should be spaced no more than 3 inches apart.

What not to do with an Endy Mattress

Foams mattresses can be very sensitive to environmental conditions like moisture and dirt. For this reason, you should not place the Endy Mattress directly on the floor for an extended period of time.

And while the Endy Mattress is durable enough for coverage by a 10-year limited warranty it can become damaged if it's not supported adequately, and should not be used with any base or foundation with gaps or spaces wider than 3 inches.
