Is this a good frame? 03 Apr 2013 23:59 #1

Hi Phoenix,

Eventually I plan on getting the Ultimate Dreams 13" Gel Memory Foam bed, but in the meantime I think I should upgrade my frame ASAP as my box spring is in bad shape and I'm hoping it will make my current innerspring mattress a little more bearable. The frame I am planning on for the Ultimate Dreams is here: www.amazon.com/Handy-Living-Twin-Wood-Frame/dp/B002KQ5KPW/ref=cm_cmu_pg_t I would also be using it for a little bit with my regular mattress, sans box spring. Do you know anything about it?

Thanks,

Jeremiah

Hi Jeremiah,

I have no personal experience with the Handy living but a forum search on " handy living " (you can just click this) will bring up the forum comments about it. Overall it wouldn't be my first choice.

Okay, thanks. What would you choose between these two?

or

I know you say that the best option is usually to go with the manufacturer's own frame, but theirs has 9 wires while Malouf's has 10. Malouf's is also a little less expensive. Does it matter?

Hi Jeremiah,

They are certainly similar but if they are not the same (sometimes it's hard to see all the wires) then I would tend to choose the one with the smallest surface grid and the most longitudinal wires.

The suggestion to go with a manufacturers suggestion is because it's usually a "safe" choice but for those who want to do the extra research and can find a better option (most people normally choose a cheaper option rather than a better one) then of course the one that appears to be the better quality / value choice is the direction I would go.
