Rosanne Randolph. Box Spring. February 10th , 2018.
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.
At the most basic level, you can get a box spring mattress. These beds are very traditional and have been around for decades. If you have never slept on anything else, then a box spring bed will feel completely normal. However, they tend to cause discomfort because they do not allow your body to maintain a neutral spine while sleep. If you want to go the extra mile and experience a new level of comfort, then you should think about getting one of the newer types of mattresses that are currently on the market. The new type of bed that is becoming very popular is a memory foam mattress. These beds are made of a special foam that lets you spine maintain more a of straight line.
Turning a blind eye to a potential bed bug invasion is a risk you dont want to take; especially when travelling. If you are planning to travel for spring break, or any time of year, here are some helpful tips for avoiding these pests: Leave your suitcases on hard surfaces. Do not put your suitcase on the bed, carpet or upholstered furniture. Bed bugs are less likely to invade your belongings if you place them on a hard surface, such as the luggage rack or table. Search your sheets at night to spot the actual bug. Bed bugs mostly hide out during the day, but you may be able to see them at night by using a flashlight. Baby bedbugs are nearly invisible, but their older relatives are brown to red-brown and oval-shaped.
Anyone who has had to move recently will remember how challenging it was to move the mattress. Depending on the type of mattress you probably felt like you were moving a very large, awkward, limp noodle. Many modern mattresses lack internal structures to hold them rigid. This helps a great deal when negotiating corners, but does not help when moving in a straight line. The box spring, on the other hand, with its rigid structure was probably at its most difficult when it came to doorways and stairs. The very strong structure that supports your bed was keeping it from turning and moving perhaps even that one inch more. People who move regularly, such as young adults and military families, are well advised to consider buying two smaller mattresses and putting them together to create a larger bed. Smaller mattresses and box springs are easier to move.
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.
