Have you been thinking of getting a new bed? Not sure were to start? There are a lot of new options that are different from the last time you purchased a new bedroom set. Here are some things to consider before heading into the mattress store.
In the past you may have had a typical box spring under, supporting the mattress. You can still do that today. There are a few options with this choice. It can still come in regular height that is 9" tall box or in LOW Profile box, which is 3' shorter, making it closer to only 6" tall. Some people who are shorter prefer the low. Other people choose the low if the mattress height itself is taller. The end number for the overall height of the bed is what is most important. Is it comfortable for you to get up and off of?
Box Springs are not made how they once were, due to many reasons. In the "old days" they actually had a spring unit around the edge that helped relive the weight and stress put of the mattress. Since mattress are made differently these days, a box spring is now built as a solid foundation to support your mattress structure and give the bed the height you need, therefore it is now called a FOUNDATION.
The Serta® Mattress Foundation is a box spring alternative and provides the perfect support for your Serta® mattress, adds 6" or 9” in height to your bed and is designed to provide durability and long-lasting comfort. Pairing this bed base with your mattress will support it and extend its life while helping isolate the effect of your partner’s movements in bed. Available in all sizes.
A Link Spring Foundation would be another way to raise the mattress. This system works as a slat system to give support to the bed. Many people use this option when they want less "parts" or if the want more storage under the mattress. These bases give the same support if they have the proper number of slates for your size mattress and guests sleeping on it.
Now if you would like movement in your foundation- head tilt, lifting of the legs for better circulation, then you replace these foundations for an adjustable base. Both "box spring"/ foundation and adjustable base are not needed. You only need one or the other to give support for your mattress.
The Serta Motion Air Adjustable Base is one of the starting bases. It is easy to set up and eliminates the need for a box spring. You are able to adjust the head and/or foot of the mattress with a wireless remote so you can find your optimal position for sleep, work, or relaxation in bed. Includes Silent Drive Motors and Power Outage protection to provide you with the quiet and peace of mind you deserve. Adjustable legs in 3" increments: 6", 9" or 12" height. This model will not come in Full Size. If you need that mattress and foundation size, we would need to pick a different base. Lift capacity of 650lbs

This upgraded version of the popular Motion Perfect model packs in all the bells and whistles for even more ways to customize your comfort. A wireless remote lets you adjust the head and/or foot of the mattress, program up to two of your favorite positions, or use the Zero Gravity pre-set position for a weightless, zen-like experience. Plus, Serta's new EasySeat™ technology adjusts the shape of your mattress with every movement of the base, so your body rests even more naturally as you move from one position to the next. Even better? We know your partner's snoring can ruin even the most comfortable position, so we included an Anti-Snore head tilt feature to our remote. This model of adjustable base is called a "Double Deck" base. It has two layers that split apart to build or create your comfort. This motion give you the benifit of staying closer to your nightstand, vs being bent forward. The base moves up the wall vs crunching in half. This keeps you closer to your night stand and maybe a little more lifted. This model comes in all mattress sizes, excepts for Twin. They do make Twin XL though. Lift Capacity of 850lbs
