Alissa Le. Box Spring. February 10th , 2018.
Step 3: If you can carry the box spring with one hand, use your other hand to support the upper part of the furniture. If not, you can secure the upper part using a removable tape. Step 4: Carefully move backwards. Your motion with your friend should be synchronized so he or she does not end up pushing you. You might also want to move first so that your friend can follow. Hold the end of the furniture at arms length so you can peek below and find out if you are going to trip on a tread of the staircase. Step 5: When moving into corners, slowly angle the furniture to fit the corners. Your friend might need to take a back step to position the furniture and avoid banging it to the corners of the stairs. Step 6: Once you have already reached your destination, carefully put it down. Bend your knees and support the top of the box spring when putting it down. Make sure your partner have also moved it down before releasing your hold on it.
With platform beds, the mattress rests directly on the frame. The frame contains slats of wood stretching from side to side, and these provide more than enough support for the mattress. Thus, a nice bed frame and a nice mattress can finally exist in harmony without the cumbersome presence of a box spring. This makes overall use of the bed much simpler. For one thing, creaking will be in the past. The springs inside a box spring tend to rust and wear out over time, and this creates audible and annoying noise. The solid construction of platform beds prevents unnecessary shifting and eliminates the noise problem. Platform beds look better, as well. The removal of the box spring simplifies the overall appearance of the bed, giving it a streamlined and trendy appearance. Many platform beds have European or Asian-themed designs, and can make your home look more contemporary. A platform beds low profile allows it to take up slightly less space and thus fit better in a wider variety of bedrooms. This freedom of placement is another of the many benefits of owning a platform bed.
Realistically, from all of the research I have done on this (and with a girlfriend that constantly debates this point with me, Ive done my share of research), I have concluded that box springs only do two things well, and that is 1. increase the overall height of the bed, and 2. soften the overall firmness of the bed (given that the box spring is not extremely firm). Helping the mattress last longer is a distant, distant, and arguable third. As a person who neither cares for a tall bed, nor a soft bed, I found that platform beds are the most stylishly modern, environmentally-friendly pieces of furniture to complement my mattress. You simply dont need a box spring for your mattress/bed.
Today, with comfort zones targeted at various positions along the mattress, this rotation is no longer suggested, and the handles which would often break when holding the weight of the entire mattress were removed. It is very important when moving a mattress from one home to another to cover it somehow. Dont rely on a sheet either. Many stores that stock boxes and other packing material will have plastic bags large enough to enclose the mattress and box spring. This is essential for keeping dirt and water from damaging the set. These bags may come complete with handles, or one can also use a very long piece of rope to create a handle. It is just like trussing up a turkey. Be sure to draw the rope all around the mattress and distribute the weight of the mattress as evenly as possible.
