Can you just put a mattress on the floor?


Many of us find our ourselves in this situation at one point in our lives. When changing our beds or were moving house it’s not the ideal circumstance to be in. When your used to a quality base or bedstead but beggars can’t be choosers. In order to help your back and sleeping surface you need to try and rectify your condition. 

By investing in a quality ottoman bed or sprung base your going to be giving your mattress some give and softer tension. Putting a mattress on the floor is the same as a solid top base in most ways. 

Quick tip – If you have a thick piled rug this could help when putting your mattress on the floor as there’s going to be some kind of foundation.
