A BETTER BUNKIE BOARD
Without adequate support, mattresses sink and lump over time. Our 1.5-inch, low-profile Bunkie Board provides an essential foundation to ensure your mattress retains its shape and delivers long-lasting, body-contouring comfort. It functions like a box spring but without the added height. And unlike most bunkie boards, which are made in one piece that traps heat and prevents airflow, our design features wood slats covered with a breathable organic cotton canvas to allow air to flow easily underneath your mattress. It’s a must for trundle beds, bunk beds, day beds, and wire bed frames or those whose slats are too far apart to offer appropriate reinforcement.
SOLID WOOD SLATS
Plywood, particle board, and composite wood — that’s what the majority of bunkie boards are made of. And they’re typically one piece, which keeps heat inside your mattress and can warp due to moisture and temperature changes. At Avocado, that’s not how we do things. We craft our Bunkie Board with solid, American-sourced wood and a slatted design to ensure air flows efficiently between the mattress and its base for cool, deep slumber.
ORGANIC COTTON COVER
Most bunkie boards are covered with cheap synthetic fabric that tears easily, emits harmful VOCs, and doesn’t breathe. What’s more, the material is often bonded to the wood using chemical-based glues. We cover the solid wood slats of our Bunkie Board with an airy organic cotton cover that allows for maximum breathability. Organic cotton is held to a stricter standard than conventional cotton and is grown without pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. This is better for you, our family farmers, and the planet. And we secure the cotton cover using steel staples — no glues or other bonding adhesives.
