There are all sorts of reasons why people choose to sleep on the floor. Some folks prefer being lower down, while some simply don’t see the point of spending extra money on a bed frame. The only trouble is, many mattresses aren’t comfortable if you place them directly on the floor. The best mattresses for sleeping on the floor are comfortable without any box spring or slats. Sadly, that’s not the case with most mattresses on the market!
Don’t worry, though. We’ve got you covered with reviews and recommendations of the best mattresses for sleeping on the floor. The models we’ve selected below are all comfortable with or without bed frames and box springs. They’re ideal for people who want to sleep on the floor without sacrificing their spine!
Read on to see which mattresses make the grade, as chosen by our sleep expert-in-residence, Michelle Jenkins!

Best Floor Mattress Reviews (2019)
Which of these mattresses should you buy for sleeping on the floor?
The Tuft & Needle is a good choice if you like memory foam and other modern mattresses. It’s the best foam-type mattress we’ve reviewed, either on a frame or on the floor. We think it’s the best choice for the average buyer.
The My Green Mattress is a better choice if you like traditional spring mattresses. It’s truly old school, with no foam at all. This isn’t quite as comfortable for most people as the Tuft & Needle, though, and it won’t last as long as the Pure Green. Spring mattresses tend to have the shortest lifespans when they’re used on the floor.
While latex isn’t for everyone, the Sleep On Latex Pure Green is our top quality recommendation for sleeping on the floor. It’s nearly as adaptive as the Tuft & Needle, while packing a lot more springiness and durability. We think it’s a perfect balance between eco-friendliness and modern comfort. And since it’s latex, it’ll last for years and years without wearing out–even without a frame or box spring to help it out. Choosing just one best floor mattress is tricky, but overall we’d say the Tuft & Needle is our top pick thanks to its additional depth and outstanding comfort.
