A more solid alternative to slats and lower in profile than the Classic Base, our Bunkie Board offers a low profile support for your new mattress. Comes in two versions: our Classic, exposed wood style or Upholstered in organic cotton fabric.

*Please include the internal dimension (width, length and width of rail/lip the slats will sit on) of your bed frame in the notes at check out. 

Not sure if a Bunkie Board is right for you? Read through our Choosing a Foundation Guide for more information.


The distance between the slats is about an inch and a half. The height is about 1.5".

It normally works to make the dimensions half an inch less than the mattress size. However, we do require the internal dimensions of your bed frame (width, length and width of rail/lip the slats will sit on) to make the bunkie board to an exact fit. Read through our Choosing a Foundation Guide for more information on how to measure your frame.

Please note that a king bunkie board will be split into two halves (two Twin XLs).

Love my new Bunkie board

Love my new custom fit bunkie board! My original bed slats have shrunk over the time, and were falling out at will, especially when I was trying to flip my super comfortable Suffolk mattress. The wonderful folks at Black Sheep measured my old bed and made a custom fit bunkie board that is sooo delightfully secure. Thrilled!

Hi Ann, thank you for your review! We’re so glad we were able to help you find a good foundation. You can rest with ease that you and your mattress have sturdy support!
