Best wooden slats for naturepedic/ all coil mattress 06 Oct 2021 20:48 #1

I had my naturepedic all coil (EOS) mattress on a wood frame for awhile. The slats were 3 inches wide and 3 inches apart which was recommended but the mattress felt saggy.
I then tried (at the company's suggestion) to add a piece of wood between the slats and the mattress, but this didn't help much.

So, now second time around, wondering, if anyone has thoughts/ experience with the following-
1) Might flexible slats work better for this mattress? or would it make the bed feel even saggier?
2) what about getting a frame with closer together slats like 2 inches apart? Any distance that you think might be more supportive?

Thank you

Hi Venus.

1) Might flexible slats work better for this mattress? or would it make the bed feel even saggier?


This depends on what you want to feel when you're on the mattress. If you want a bouncy, buoyant, floating feel then the flexible slats could be a good choice. If you're looking for a flatter, firmer feel with less bounce, then slats that are closer together or even a platform base would be more suitable for your preferences.

2) what about getting a frame with closer together slats like 2 inches apart? Any distance that you think might be more supportive?


Yes, generally speaking, the closer the slats are together, the "firmer" the feel you're going to get from your mattress.

If you place the mattress on the floor, are you still feeling like there is "sag" while lying down? If so, your issue is not with the foundation but rather the integrity of the mattress.
