Good Questions: A slatted base instead of boxspring?

Hi AT:SF, I'm about to buy a mattress and am very confused by all the options. I don't have a bed yet so it will be on the floor for a few months initially. I like low beds and am saving up for a platform bed in a few months. For the time being, can I skip the box spring and just use one of these slatted bed base things from Ikea underneath it, to keep it off the floor? Thanks, dragonfly
