Box Spring. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 13:05:27 PM
Of all the benefits to platform beds, none is as helpful and noticeable as the end to box springs. Box springs have always been more of a hassle than anything else, and can even ruin the comfort brought about by a nice, new mattress. The idea is that a standard bed frame cannot support a mattress directly. The box spring rests between the mattress and the frame, providing "durable" balance and foundation. In reality, the box spring creaks, wears out, and even breaks after continuous use. The problem is introducing an additional element to the bed - an element that typically doesnt have the strength to last very long without becoming an issue. Platform beds remedy this problem by removing the box spring from the equation altogether.
If you require a box spring for your mattress If your purpose for a platform bed is to have a lower profile that adding a box spring might not make any sense. There are platform beds that have that have a much lower foundation that can easily set up the box spring and mattress. This way you can get the best setup for your mattress and still have that desire low profile. Does your Platform Bed have Slats? Slats can take place for the box spring. But once again you should refer to your manufactures guide. Depending on your mattress thickness, you could possibly feel the sagging around the spacing of your slats. Off course the closer the slats the better, but most of the times the slats are built in and only able to adjust them minimally. Using Plywood Deck If all else fails then the best solution is to measure the width and length of the bed. Use these measurements and cut out a plywood deck. I would recommend cutting them into 2 or 3 smaller pieces. Cutting one large plywood deck can be difficult, especially if you have a larger size like a king or queen. Once again though check with your manufacturers guide. The flat foundation could possibly make the mattress less comfortable.
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.
