I had my mattress on box springs on the floor in one of my first houses. I ended up having a leak disaster while gone one day and it ruined my mattress. I’m with others in using the frat house argument- this would be a no compromise issue with me.

cbgg:  No, just no. Hobos is a pretty good reason. We have a foam mattress, too. You could always get a platform bed, they’re pretty close to the ground. And that spiders thing.

I second the needing a bedframe for storage underneath & allowing the mattress to breathe.  Also, if you don’t like it and feel like a hobo, that’s enough of a reason right there.  I would think your happiness would be worth the extra effort for your DH to put something on a nightstand instead of the floor.  For goodness sakes, his argument is just laziness.  My bed is higher off the ground than the average bed, and I guarantee I can still fall on it when I’m tired and have no trouble putting things on my nightstand.

cbgg:  Like I said, it’s laziness.  If you get a higher bedframe, then you get a higher nightstand to match it.  Problem solved.

We keep our matress and box spring on the floor. It started off as frugality but we discovered we sort of like it. There’s really no need. Though we have tossed around the idea of a platform bed in the future, if we need extra storage space.

Unless we weren’t able to afford a bed frame, there’s no way I would go for this. Last time I did the whole mattress on the floor thing was when I was 20, and it was all SO had at the time.

cbgg:  if you live in a high humidity area it can get pretty “swampy” under the mattress.

We moved in together 3 years ago and I literally just bought a bed frame a month ago. It was never that big of a deal to me and I actually liked it on the floor. I only bought the frame because I’m running out of room in this tiny ass apartment and needed some more storage. I actually hated it when I got the frame and wanted to return it. My matress is 18 inches deep so it was like “normal” height without the frame. Then I got the frame and it comes up to my boobs now so I have to jump on… short people probs.

If you ever plan on being pregnant then you will thank the heavens for having a bedframe. Getting out of bed is hard enough while pregnant without the added hassle of practically getting up of the floor.
