Memory foam is a type of product that helps to relieve pressure caused by your body. It provides a very firm, denser, and more cushioning feeling than other types of mattresses. Memory foam not only absorbs impact from your body but also reduces its weight of it, which in turn reduces pressure points. How to build a memory foam mattress foundation that will help your custom-built corner, pocket coil or hybrid bed maintain its shape and support you throughout the night.

Memory foam mattresses don’t need a foundation. However, all memory foam mattresses are built differently. You can use any material, such as wood or metal, to strengthen the support necessary for a mattress foundation.

Why Memory Foam Mattress Foundation is ​Required?

A memory foam mattress foundation is necessary for many reasons: It supports vital organs, keeps your spine aligned, protects against pressure changes due to movements in the home, and protects you from impacts.

The memory foam mattress foundation is required because of its even temperature distribution, and this is especially helpful when you have a hot spot or are getting up and moving around a lot. It’s also important to take into consideration that your mattress is the largest investment you’ll make in your bed, so it’s important to find something that will last a long time.

Step by step How To Build a Memory Foam Mattress Foundation

Step 1: Step 1 – Get ​Your Wood

Determine if you want a foundation that is 5 inches or 10 inches thick. Most of the time you can use either the 5″ or the 10″ boards. Step 2: Take the two pieces of your 4″ foam and use a sharp knife to cut them into 3″ strips. These are going to be used as pieces of your mattress foundation.

The first step to building a memory foam mattress is to get your wood for the base. There are several different kinds of wood you can use depending on the color and style of the foundation you are building, but for this tutorial, we will be using quarter-sawn white oak. Of course, there are many other kinds of wood that work just as well or better than white ok.

Step 2 – Create The Frame

The frame is created using 1/2 inch hardwood lumber, plank, and then glued together. Small pocket holes are drilled in the side rails to secure the structure to your foundation. The head and footboards can be 4-inch or 6-inch whicker which will give a more luxurious look and feel. You can use any floor covering including vinyl or cork flooring if you prefer this type of finish.

Step 3 – Add The Slats

Use a level to check for evenness and when you’re ready, add the slats that will support the mattress. Lay them across the top of the mattress with their edges slightly overlapping. Make sure they are placed at equal distances apart on both sides. Some helpful hints: If you’re not sure whether your mattress would need a box spring, try lying on it to make sure you can fit it through your doorway! If it seems too hard or too soft, try adding more layers of foam.

Step 4 – Add The Legs

The next step is to add the legs. The foam that comes with the mattress is not very thick, so it will be a little short on this step. Once you have the leg material cut, fold them in half like the picture and glue them down into place. I would recommend using Gorilla Glue because it doesn’t leave any stains and once dried, can be painted over to keep paint from getting into the mattress.


If you are searching for the best bed frame for heavy person, then you should consider buying one that has a 10-inch thick top and thus provides you with a firm base. Furthermore, by comparing the base of your mattress with that of friends, families, or even strangers and then making it, you’ll get a first-hand idea of what is right for your home.

However, when it comes to purchasing this type of mattress as opposed to buying an innerspring or latex-based one, one might wonder whether they should choose between these two options. In fact, given the fact that these are both equally good at providing comfort to people who suffer from back pain or other stress-related conditions then there is no reason why one should have to make such a decision.
