Where's the best place to find a good bed for a small price?

I've hard people say Ikea bases are alright, but their matrices are rubbish.
But then, others have said that if you get am Ikea base, other makes of matrice don't fit them.

So what's the deal?

It doesn't have to last a lifetime.

Are Ikea matrices as bad as I'm told, and are there any other good matrices that will fit an Ikea base?


Thanks

Excellent thank you. P.S. my spelling of mattress was entirely the fault of 'auto correct'. LOL.

I'm not that worried about anything going wrong with a base... surely it's just nuts and bolts?

That site looks like a good place to get base and mattress. Quick delivery too... just the ticket.

We got wooden frames and mattresses for our place in France from there last Summer, took them down and built them there, they were spot on apart from one bed had a strat missing. Unfortunately it had been about 10 weeks since we purchased and we thought it had been too long. Emailed mattressman when we got back and they sorted it immediately.
Recently bought our latest (and much more expensive) mattress from them recently (to go with our Dreams bed) and again they were brilliant.

Much cheaper than most places too. It is worth spending a little bit extra on a base though, especially when you consider what a lot of beds have to go through. Ooh er.

They all look much of a muchness to me unless you go for solid oak.. which would be over kill for a couple of 9 stone weaklings. lol

At what price would you say a better quality base kicks in? I was thinking about £150 on the base and about £350 on the mattress.

Always worth popping into a local independent shop if you can. We did the same and got better and cheaper than the large chains.

If you're going for a wooden frame, get one that has a centre rail supporting the slats & preferably a foot in the middle supporting the rail. Without these the slats will bow or even break.

There's few mattress threads if you search.

independent shops dont have the same matresses as the large chains such as Dreams or Beds, there matresses are made exclusive for them and are far better that ones sold at small independant shops. samll independent shops usually only stock cheap matresses, cant afford to stock up on expensive items that might not sell
