Boarding a slatted base
To make a base for a 6′ wide sprung mattress Is it ok to use 5.5″x1″ boards (or should I slice them in two?) And it good to have 2 3/4″ gaps between them, or should I have the gaps more like 2″?
Thanks so much
5.5″x1″ boards should be fine, no real need to make them thinner.
2-3″ gaps will be fine.
What I would do though is to lay a breathable cover over them such as a blanket or duvet to provide some sort of cushioning.
