Bunkie Board as Foundation for a King Size Latex Mattress.

Al writes:
Hi Pete,
I am considering an all latex mattress with bunkie boards for foundations, which will give us the same height as our current mattress + foundation. 

I also want to avoid the difference in firmness in the middle of the king mattress caused by foundation frames. 
Is there any reason this would not work, such as breath ability, durability or comfort?  
Thanks, Al
Hi Al,
Bunkie boards were designed for bunk beds to hold a reasonably inexpensive mattress and the weight of a child.
This is a prime example of, “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”.
The demand you would be placing upon it, is far beyond that, for which it was intended.
Most latex mattresses come with foundation that are made of wood.
These would not have the problem of steel foundations, where the center is stronger.
Wood foundations support evenly across the entire mattress.
Also, they are usually available in a “Low Profile” height.
I recommend going that route and forget about the bunkie boards.
A latex mattress is heavier than other mattresses…and, you aren’t the weight of a child.

Here’s a link to an excellent choice of mattress and low profile foundation.
