Mattress on King Size Mattress Frame
King size mattress frame – can be used on a regular bed frame. But it looks better on the futon mattress is close to the size of a standard mattress frame is designed for. To support the mattress, you must install the wooden slats very close to each other on the frame. Or you can install a solid layer of half-inch plywood on a metal bed frame to hold a futon.
A standard king size mattress frame is typically just metal railing. You need to create an almost solid base for the futon mattress to sleep on. A standard box spring can be placed in just three or four slices placed over the bed frame. However, a futon more flexible. A solid plywood base is placed over some wooden slats works best. The plywood can be painted or stained, so prone areas have a finished look around the edges. If a standard bed frame has a box spring, you can simply place a futon mattress on top of the box spring.
The thickness and overall size of the futon mattresses vary widely. Futons should be at least 5 inches thick. Eight inches thick futon is often used on children’s bunk beds. You can buy these mattresses in full, king size mattress frame. Thicker mattresses cannot be rolled up, but they give more support than thinner. Buy a futon for a bunk bed to fit the exact depth of a box-type “cavity”. A higher futon mattress can let the child slip off the bunk over the railing.
