Do I have to use a Sleep Number® base with my mattress?

Not planning to use a Sleep Number® base? Follow these tips for success!

  • A Sleep Number mattress requires a firm solid surface to provide a comfortable sleeping surface. A traditional box spring won't work with a Sleep Number mattress.
  • We recommend a solid surface platform bed or slats no more than 2 inches apart. If the slats on your bed frame are further than 2 inches apart, we recommend laying a bunkie board inside your bed frame to create a solid surface for your Sleep Number mattress.
