The Platform Bed Insert: An Easy Alternative

Do you have a bed frame that you absolutely love? Maybe it’s one that was passed down from a relative or it’s a beautiful antique that you stumbled upon unexpectedly (aren’t those the best finds?). Or maybe it’s just brand new and awesome and you really don’t feel like replacing it but you want to purchase a latex mattress. Whatever the case, we have a new product that we think you might be interested in—our platform bed insert.

The insert is carefully crafted in Charlottesville, Virginia at the Savvy Rest woodshop with natural maple and poplar wood. We’re all about quality construction and sturdy designs that you can rely on. It’s also super easy to assemble because we think complicated instructions and countless tools are unnecessary and just painful. We wanted to create a product that was high-end, effective and safe, but also affordable and stress-free. So, how exactly is this insert useful? Keep reading.

It’s important that our organic mattresses have the support and airflow they need. A traditional box spring usually does not allow for this. Latex is on the heavier side and has the ability to crush a box spring if said box spring is flimsy or unstable (and let’s be honest–a lot of them are). If you’re investing in a new mattress, you want to make sure that it’s taken care of properly. Mattress pads are helpful as well as keeping your evening cup of chamomile tea on the nightstand instead of splattered all over your cozy oasis. But what about what your mattress “sleeps” on? We recommend sturdy, wooden slats that are 2.5″-3″ apart. This gives the mattress the stability it needs as well as breathability so your mattress can stay in tip-top shape for years to come.

Natural Bed Rug

The bed rug is porous and allows air circulation between the bottom of a mattress and a platform bed’s surface.

Our matching foundation replaces the boxspring in a bedstead or frame.

But wait—there is another benefit to the platform bed insert and it has to do with your wallet! A platform bed insert is a smaller investment unlike a foundation or a whole new platform bed. While we could rave about our stunning Afton and Esmont platform beds all day, we understand that some would prefer to upgrade what they already have. Our insert gives you that option.

We have high standards when it comes to the products we design and present to our customers. We stay away from toxic chemicals and materials that lack durability. Savvy Rest products are meant to be a lasting positive addition to your home. We hope the platform bed insert is just that.
