How Do I Choose A Support Base?

It's important to provide your mattress with the necessary support beneath its foam layers. Using your new mattress without the proper support can impact the way it feels while you sleep and in some cases can even void your mattress warranty. As you decide between different support bases, it can be helpful to consider: 

  • How tall do you want your bed to be?
  • How much under bed space are your hoping for? 
  • How will your support base look next to the rest of your bedroom furniture? 

Below, we'll explore a few support base options and how explain your options for combining Helix bases to find your perfect setup. 

Helix foundation

Helix Foundation

The Helix Foundation is 7.5 inches tall and is designed with flat spruce wood slats and has just under 5 inches of space between each slat. This small amount of space between each slat is essential to maintaining the feel and durability of your mattress. 

The Helix warranty recommends using flat, thick slats beneath your mattress and requires any support system you use to have no more than 5 inches of space between each support slat. The Helix Foundation can be used with any standard metal bed frame and is the perfect option for anyone looking to replace their box spring. 

Helix Foundation + Bed Frame

The Helix Bed Frame is made with hardened steel and is designed to provide additional height to your sleeping setup. It will sit at the bottom of your setup and support your Foundation, adding 7.5 inches to your overall bed height. 

Please note, though, that the Helix Bed Frame cannot be used alone with your Helix mattress. It must be paired with a Foundation to function properly.

Helix Adjustable Base

Helix Adjustable Base

The Helix Adjustable Base provides optimal support for your mattress with a sturdy steel frame and no gaps of space directly beneath the surface of the mattress. On top of incredible support, the Adjustable Base is remote-powered and allows you to find the perfect angle of your head and foot positioning. 

Elevate your head to reduce snoring. Slide into the zero-gravity preset to alleviate lower back pain. Find the perfect elevation for diving into a good book or binging your favorite show. 

The Adjustable Base is 12 inches tall and includes 4 stackable legs, allowing you to adjust your overall bed height in 3 inch increments.
