Product Care

Mattresses:

Rest easy with the fact that your Ashley-Sleep® mattress doesn’t require much care and maintenance. For starters, all Ashley-Sleep mattresses are designed to be no flip—now isn’t that a relief!

How to Care for Your Mattress:

  1. To help keep your Ashley-Sleep mattress clean, a thin mattress protector is recommended so it breathes to allow airflow and heat dissipation. Ashley-Sleep does not recommend you use a quilted mattress pad as it will change the feel of the mattress you selected at the store. It may also trap heat that needs to escape.
  2. Don’t use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress. These chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.
  3. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If you must clean a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly, allowing the mattress time to fully air dry.
  4. Please remind the kids not to jump on their Ashley-Sleep mattress, as doing so can break down the inner construction and materials.

Correct height, looks better than bunky board, sturdy.
STEPHEN C on Apr 16, 2020
Do I need a boxspring too or can I put a mattress right on this frame?
Jen N on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The better than a box spring foundation eliminates the need for a box spring! You can place a mattress directly on it.
I know this alleviates the use of a box spring, but are you able to add a box spring? The kid wants a taller bed.
Jennifer T on Feb 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: A foundation could be used on the frame.
Does this fold for storage? I’m looking for a guest bed. But I don’t want to have it out all the time.
Robin on Feb 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It does not fold up. You would just need to disassemble it when you do not want it out.
Thanks for the inquiry!
Could this work for a plain 4-inch foam mattress or would you feel the metal through the foam? (for a 140 lb person)
Linnd on Dec 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It most likely would be fine, but be sure to put something like a blanket between the springs and the foam if the foam is bar. It will handle 140lbs no issue. Kind of flemzy but usable
Will this fit inside the Drystan Queen Panel Bed, that measures: Width: 64.25"Depth: 84.00"Height: 60.75"?
jadedkrystals on Feb 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The Queen Better than a Boxspring would be compatible with the Drystan Queen Panel Bed.
How do you attach a head board and foot board? Do you need a whole frame or do they attach right to this bed frame?
Donna B on Feb 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Greetings
This bed frame comes with two bolt on brackets that have slots for mounting your headboard. If you are planning on mounting a foot board also, you will need to order a bracket kit for that. There is a part number sheet included in the packaging with the assembly instructions. Even though the brackets are slotted for mounting purposes, I did drill additional holes to lag bolt my wooden headboard for extra rigidity
Will a queen mattress fit on 2 twin frames ?
Denise W on Jan 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Two twin beds will equal about 78 inches in width. This is a lot larger than a queen sized mattress, which is only 60 inches wide. A queen is also longer than a twin, so if you attempt to put a queen sized sheet onto two twin sized beds, you will have a situation where the sheets are too narrow, but also too long.
Will this frame work with my hybrid 12 inch bed?
Doreen S on Dec 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if the mattress is also a Twin size, it will be compatible.
Most of the comments seem to use a foam mattress. Will this frame work for a Sealy plush mattress and on tile floor, no carpet in bedroom?
Chantel H on Oct 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Foundation would be compatible with a plush mattress and sitting on a non-carpeted floor.
Can i purchase 2 twin size for my king size mattress?
Chloe O on Jun 18, 2020
Could you use two twins for a king size bed?
Breanna W on May 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, with king size headboard. Couples sleep better. I make them individual then have a king size bedspread
Couples sleep better.
I'm hearing that the mattress can slip off. How do you lay down the bed skirt so that it stays in place under the mattress?
Monique N on May 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have not had problems with the mattress sliding around, and have done with and without a bed skirt. I’ve seen mattress sliding as a problem with other platform beds but not this one. The bed skirt moves when you lift the mattress but not really otherwise.
What is the underbed storage height on the frame?
Laura B on Dec 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You actually have pretty good space underneath the bed. I think it notes that it's a 14 in. frame. It is certainly not a low profile frame.
I’m looking at a queen sized one. How doe you cover up the frame since it’s taller? It’s utilitarian but ugly.
Cathy on Jul 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can use a bedskirt to cover the foundation.
Will this fit inside the Realyn twin bed frame?
Robin S on May 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, this is just frame. The way they made it you cannot put a headboard or add anything else to it.
Will two twin foundations fit a king size 12 inch hybrid mattress??
Stacie P on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It should, just measure the mattress width and length to make sure of sizing.
do I have to install the headboard brackets? are they part of frame support?

Awesome Product and Highly Recommend!!!!!
I am Very Happy with my purchase!!! We had the Hybrid Mattress on a Box spring and frame and it made all kinds of noise getting in and out of bed. The Frame is Awesome!!! No noise getting in or out of the bed now and we don't disturb each other moving around. Thank you and I Highly Recommend this Frame!!!!
