A good bed base is extremely important because it guarantees the right level of support and ventilation. The right bed base lengthens the life of your mattress (thanks to proper ventilation) and ensures it gives you great support by applying the right amount of counter-pressure just where you need it. You can choose from two different bed systems: a regular bed and a box spring. For both a bed and a box spring you can choose from a range of different bed bases. There are many types of bed bases on the market, each one with specific features. Auping only offers mesh bases. Why, you ask? Well, you’ll discover everything you need to know here, and we’ll highlight the other options too.
There are many types of bed bases, each one with specific features. Below, you will find an overview of the five most common bed bases:
Tip: Combine an Auping mattress with the Auping mesh base for optimal support. Your mattress supports your entire body and always stays in place, also on an adjustable mesh base.
Tip: The outside doesn’t always reveal what hides inside. Cheaper box springs often have a bottom box that is not well ventilated due to its virtually closed base
Tip: To safeguard the quality of your mattress, you should opt for a slatted base that has a minimum of 28 slats. Fewer slats result in more space between each slat, which can damage your mattress because there is no counter-pressure on the springs inside the mattress. There are so many options on the market, and unfortunately also huge differences in quality!
Tip: This type of base has considerably fewer support points than a mesh base and the tighter structure also allows for less ventilation.
Tip: A Vlavro bed base is often labeled uncomfortable because, as it is not well ventilated, it tends to get very hot.
