As DreamCloud mattress is a hybrid mattress made with coils and memory foam, it doesn’t require a box spring. DreamCloud mattresses can be placed on any solid, and firm surface like a metal bed frame, platform base or adjustable base that’s capable of supporting the weight of your mattress plus its sleepers.
What is the DreamCloud mattress made of?
A hybrid mattress is a mix of two types - traditional spring coils blended with multiple layers of foam. A hybrid mattress is noteworthy because it can accommodate different sleepers irrespective of weight or position. In addition, hybrid mattresses are renowned for their motion-isolation and cooling technology.
The DreamCloud mattress comprises 5 supreme layers. Each layer performs differently in providing comfort to the sleeper.
1. Soft to the Touch Cover: The first layer is made of soft Cashmere providing coolness
2. Pressure-Relief Comfort Layer: This layer is present with gel memory foam contouring to the body’s shape
3. Sink-in-Just-Right Layer: It offers perfect sinkage into the mattress
4. Essential Base Layer: Ensures stability of the above layers
Targeted-Support Coil Layer: Presence of innerspring coils made to adapt to the body
Do Hybrid Mattresses Need Box Spring?
Box springs are wooden bases made with either springs or a metal grid and wrapped in fabric. Box springs are not mandatory for hybrid mattresses. But if you already own one, you can place the same. Foam or Hybrid mattresses generally don’t require box spring because their surfaces are not solid enough to hold these mattresses. In fact, some warranties completely prohibit using box springs. Box springs go well with innerspring mattresses.
Alternate Bed Base Options for Hybrid Mattresses
Box springs are a ‘No’ for hybrid mattresses and the DreamCloud mattress, then what should be the bed base for these?

4.Adjustable Base: Adjustable beds are a great alternative to a box spring as they provide strong support for the mattress along with adjustable height and angle.
5.Metal Bed Frame: Metal bed frames are made of solid metal frames with metal wires supporting your mattress.
