Assuming you are now going to select a good quality base or bed frame, the preference for either of these options should be based on your design preference as you create your personal bedroom sanctuary.
The bed bases at Sleepy’s offer a ‘stationary foundation’ for your mattress. They are made by our mattress manufacturers and therefore will support your mattress and the manufacturers warranty. Our bed bases are upholstered, there are a wide range of colours and fabric textures and come with glides (legs). Castors (or rollers/wheels) are available to help you move your base if required. You can upgrade your base to include castors when you place your order at a Sleepy’s store.
Our bed bases also have slats made from premium timber, the width of each slat and the placement of these slats further helps to support your mattress. Some of our bed bases also come in two profiles, the standard profile and a low profile. The low profile may help to keep the mattress at a manageable height as some of mattresses can be up to 40cm deep.
The bed bases we sell are all Australian made and we very proudly support local manufacturers.
The below measurements for our Australian made standard bed bases should be used as a guide only – for accurate measurements please contact one of our Sleepy’s stores who can provide you with more detailed information:
- Standard Profile base depth (not including glides) – 23 cm
- Low Profile base depth (not including glides) –15 cm
- Standard glide height – 10 cm
- Castor only – 5cm
- Castor with leg height – 10cm
- The single, long single, king single, double and queen bases are delivered as one piece; a king and super king bases are delivered in two pieces.
We do offer storage options in our bed bases such as gas lift or drawers. These bases are not part of our ‘standard’ bed base range and the heights will vary to allow for the space required to add these components to a base. For more information on specific measurements for our storage bases, please talk to one of our consultants in your local Sleepy’s store.
Our bases can be matched to a complementary range of bed heads and brackets are available to add when you purchase a bed head and base together. Visit our bed head page to view all the designer bedheads available in store and online. Don’t forget to ask for brackets at the time of order so that we can match brackets up perfectly. Brackets cannot be added after the purchase.
Bed frames are not part of the core product range at Sleepy’s. If you are wanting to put your new mattress on your current bed frame, below are some guidelines for you and we would advise speaking to a consultant in our store to provide you with more detailed information and assistance in making your decision.
- Your bedframe should be robust and not flimsy.
- It should not be broken or missing any slats or support rails.
- A centre rail running from head to toe will provide more support and is highly recommended.
- Slat width, placement, quantity and quality is important.
If in doubt, please talk to one of our consultants in store.
Most of our mattress ranges are very heavy as we believe in providing our customers with the latest in bedding technology. This can mean foam, memory foam, gel visco, graphene memory foam, gel layers, pocket springs and inner springs will make a mattress feel wonderful to sleep on and they require a high-quality base to fully support them.
