Do I Need a Box Spring For My Nectar Mattress?

You do not need a box spring for a Nectar mattress, though a Nectar mattress is compatible with most bases including box springs, adjustable bases, divan bases, traditional frames, and platform beds. While the Nectar mattress is comfy enough to use directly on the floor, Nectar knows that most of their sleepers prefer some kind of base for sleeping on. Nectar is here to help you break down which of these choices is the right one for you.

The Best Base to Use is The Nectar Adjustable Base

If you’re getting a new mattress sometimes it’s best to start totally fresh. If that’s your vibe, then it’s probably best to consider the Nectar Adjustable Base, which is brought to you by the same folks who also make the best mattress in the game (if we do say so ourselves). The Nectar adjustable base has a couple big advantages over a traditional box spring. First, it was totally designed to be used with the Nectar Mattress, like peanut butter and jelly. That’s a big deal, you know from the time you get it that it’s going to fit perfectly, support the mattress entirely, and give you a perfect sleep.

In addition to that, the Nectar adjustable base gives you options. It comes with a remote control that can give you multiple sleep settings depending on your sleep style and needs. This is some space age stuff — no really, there’s even a setting called, “Zero Gravity”, which mimics the position NASA astronauts sleep in. This is because Zero Gravity positions relieve pressure on your back while improving circulation – making it ideal for rest and rejuvenation. Another setting can help with acid reflux and sleep apnea, two big culprits in the sleep deprivation department.

It’s a mix of simple design and tech smarts, just like the Nectar mattress. The simple design will have it set up in no time, but thoughtful design tricks like multiple USB ports also encourage non-traditional bed use. If you’re looking for something that’s as versatile as you are, then the Nectar Adjustable Bed is probably your best bet.

Nectar is Compatible With Most Other Bases Too


The great part about a Nectar mattress is that it pairs well with just about anything. No really, if you already have an existing box spring, frame, or base that you don’t want to part with, you don’t have to. The Nectar mattress is compatible with most conceivable surfaces you could lay a mattress on. That list includes box springs, adjustable bases, divan bases, traditional frames, platform beds — even the floor. If you have a slatted base, we recommend that those slats be 3 inches or less apart, but other than that, there are very few rules that we have when it comes to a base. Nectar just wants you to be happy and rested in the best way you know how.

So there you have it, the most comfortable and supportive mattress also turns out to be the most flexible too. As always, Nectar recommends you try the Adjustable Base for the greatest support and sleep, but they also believe that your comfort and desires come first. Heck, if you want to put this in your old race car bed frame, they even support that (as long as it fits). Nectar is about your personal sleep story, and they’re happy to be a part of it in any way they can. Just like Meghan Trainor, they know that you’re all about that base, about that base — now get out there and get the sleep you want!
