What are sprung slats?
The type of slats you have on your bed frame affects the comfort level of your mattress. Sprung slats tend to be slightly curved, arching upwards and made from flexible premium beech wood. Sprung slats increase your bed's longevity as the arched slats are designed to provide cushioned support. If you want your mattress to adequately support you as you sleep, your mattress also needs gentle support from the bed slats. Because of the arch in the sprung slats, these bed frames tend to have a centre support rail and will include two columns of slats.
How does it differ from a solid slatted bed base?
Solid slats differ from sprung slats as they don't have an arch in the structure and are simply solid or flat. A solid slatted base is excellent for anyone with a firm bed because it accentuates this firmness level. However, if your mattress is softer, solid slats will make your bed feel firmer than it is. In this case, you should opt for a sprung slatted bed base.
