I’ve been on this site for about a month and a half now doing research and have today made it official by registering Thank you all for all of your help so far.
We bought a new bed that has a metal frame. Please refer to the attached picture, below, for the details.
We will probably purchase a Brooklyn Bedding mattress, either the Bamboo Bliss or Aloe Alexis. Brooklyn Bedding has recommended their Simple Life foundation (http://www.brooklynbedding.com/simple-life-metal-foundation) after I sent pictures of our bed. They seem like a knowledgeable, trustworthy company, but I wanted to ask for input here before moving forward with the foundation decision. I see a lot of wood slat foundations recommended here so wanted to ask about using metal on metal, and the Simple Life in particular. The wood foundations I’ve been looking at are in the same general ballpark price-wise as the Simple Life ($300-$350 for King) so at this point just looking to purchase the most appropriate one for our bed and mattress. There is also a possibility that my husband would make a wood foundation (and yes I did see the instructions in the forums which looks great).
