mattress /box spring on the floor?

post #1 of 10

Is it OK to just put them on the floor without a frame? My DS has his bedroom in our finished dry basement and wants to nix his bedframe. Is there any reason not to let him?? Bad for the bed or his back?

My first thoughts are dust and bugs - makes it easier to reach the bed. Plus, I live in scorpion country. Maybe you could call a mattress store and ask their opinion.

I lived in my college apartment for 2 years with that same set-up - no frame. Didn't seem to cause me any problems (but, I was not in scorpion country!).

I've done it before. I think it is pretty common. I would let him (actually we did this with my oldest when we moved her to a "big" bed, because we did not want her falling too far out of the bed!)

Dh and I had our mattress and boxspring on the floor for years before we bought a frame. I don't think it's a big deal, unless you're concerned about bugs and such.

I had several friends also who put their mattress on the floor when they first moved their children to "big" beds. If it starts hurting his back then you could worry about it, but otherwise it'd be fine I think.

We live in Illinois...no scorpions here. I am also thinking that if the box spring is on the floor he can't put clutter under there!
