Advantages of a Slatted Bed Base

The complete anatomy of a bed consists of a headboard, footboard, mattress and a base. While the headboard and the footboard can be of more aesthetic and ambient concerns, the mattress and the base are purely functional and pragmatic aspects of a bed design. Both need to be complementary – to each other and to the needs of the user. The base of the bed is especially important, as it determines the level of comfort even the mattress cannot handle alone. The sleeping quality of the user can be enhanced or distressed depending on the style of the bed base you use. There are conventionally two types of bed bases available in the market – one is the simple wooden plank base, while the other is the slatted bed base.
