10306074_mlIf you need a new bed and you are tight on bedroom space or if your budget is tight, check for a twin mattress in West Des Moines, IA. The materials and construction in the mattress helps to determine the price. One word of caution is to not buy used. You don’t know if the last owner had pets that had accidents on the mattress, for example. The other reason is bed bugs, which live in mattresses and other soft furniture items, and you don’t want to bring those home. Brand new twin mattresses are the right option to choose.

As long as you have a good, supportive foundation underneath your Twin Mattress West Des Moines, IA, you can get away with not having a box spring underneath it. That’s good to know if you’re under a tight budget, like in your first apartment. You won’t want to put the mattress directly on the bed frame without having support underneath the mattress. The mattress will fall right through, and it also isn’t good to bend the mattress.

You can measure the inside dimensions of your frame from one side to the other and have a home supply store cut 2×4 boards to the right length for you. You should have at least 5 support boards. You also don’t want to put boards across your frame and put the box spring directly on top of that, as there won’t be enough support. The mattress is going to have soft spots that sink down, and you will also be able to feel the hardness of the support slats.

However, if you’re under a tight budget, you could conceivably put the slats across the frame to give the mattress support, and then have a piece of plywood cut to match the bed frame dimensions and put your mattress on top of that. If you go with that less expensive option, you have basically just built yourself a platform bed. Many college students in their dorms live that way. They build loft beds in the room and just put a twin mattress on the loft platform. That’s the same concept in platform beds, which can fit into almost any decor. They are no higher than traditional beds and the mattress lies on a flat platform.
