Slatted Bed Frames Vs. Plywood: Which to Choose

Jul. 20, 2021

Choosing the right base style for your bed is just as important as your mattress, bedding and duvet, and other aspects of your bed. The type of base you choose will not only affect the durability and longevity of your mattress but also the way you sleep. So, when choosing between a slatted and plywood bed frame, here are some suggestions to help you make the right choice.


Understanding the benefits of a slatted base

Slatted bases provide excellent support for the back area as they are able to accommodate the various weights applied to them. They also provide good levels of ventilation, providing an even amount of air circulation to your mattress.

Understanding the benefits of plywood bases

Plywood bed frames are solid wood bases, just like platform tops, that provide even support to all areas of the mattress. They also help provide a firmer feel and support for sleepers who benefit from the back support.

Commercial plywood may only refer to the number of layers or layers of plywood commonly used in the construction industry. There are 3 floors, 5 floors, 7 floors, and 9 floors. The more layers, the more expensive it is. For the external structure of the home, a lot of 3 floors are used. In the cabinet shop, you will see the 5th, 7th, and 9th floors.

To know the difference between them, we have to understand hardwood plywood. In hardwood plywood, they will not use wood chips but will use multiple thick hardwood strips to form each plywood layer. Hardwood is more expensive than softwood, so hardwood plywood will be more expensive. Therefore, it is recommended that you use commercial plywood, please contact us to consult the commercial plywood price list.


Understanding the disadvantages of slatted bases

While slatted bed frames have their advantages, they also have their disadvantages. For example, certain mattress types are not suitable for slatted bases, such as solid memory foam mattresses. This is because the slat structure of this base type cannot support all areas of a dense mattress (such as memory foam). The memory foam between the slats of the base may also affect its longevity and quality.



Understanding the disadvantages of plywood bases

One of the disadvantages of a plywood (platform) bed frame is that, due to its construction, it may harden the mattress. In turn, this provides less give and comfort to the user's body when they are sleeping at night. Each user has different sleep preferences, but this type of base may not be suitable for those who prefer a softer overall feel.


How do these bed bases affect the life of your mattress?

First, the type of base you choose will, in turn, affect the type of mattress you purchase. A bed frame with slatted construction is ideal for a sprung base mattress, while a sturdy structural bed frame (such as a plywood platform top) will better complement a dense foam mattress. Overall, choosing the right base and complimenting the mattress will extend its life expectancy and make your investment last longer. Although there are other mattress care steps you can take to extend its life expectancy.


How do these bed frames affect your sleep experience?

The primary impact these basic styles have on your mattress and your quality of sleep is the comfort they provide. The effect of plywood or slatted base varies from person to person. Therefore, it is recommended that you try the different bases and the right mattress in the store to see which one works best for you.
