Lucille. Box Spring. September 25th , 2017.
Since most box springs are hard, mattresses are designed to work perfectly well on just about any firm, hard surface. The floor is one. Ive slept on a mattress on the floor for a good 8 years, and I can personally vouch for the undiminished comfort of such a setup. If there is one key argument for box springs, it is that certain touted mattress manufacturers will claim that a box spring can extend the life of a mattress. This statement is true only to the extent of the box spring providing additional spring cushioning, absorbing some of the wear that is normally exhibited onto the mattress itself. These manufacturers typically provide a box spring with their mattress, one that they say is specifically designed to be used with that mattress.
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.
You need to really be creative and think out of the box. Spring is such a wonderful time of year because it gives us so many options of different things we can wear, however, this can just as easily become something negative since the demands due to the irregularity and ever fluctuating season can force us to have to constantly readjust our outfits. Some people welcome this while others dread it, and it always becomes a matter of personal opinion and preference at this point and stage. One thing is for absolute sure, you must learn to adapt to the climate outside and always have the right plus size spring coats backed up somewhere in your closest ready to come out and provide that sense of fashion and luxury you need, whatever the occasion may be.
If you simply cannot afford it, then that is all there is to it. If you think yours do not meet the standard, then you can get rid of them, but you will want some form of support. If you cannot afford box springs, wood supports are an option even though they may not be as strong. If you choose not to buy box springs, you should check and make sure any bedding you purchase are still under warranty. Since the mattress stores believe it helps mattresses to last, they may only let the warranty work if you purchase both together. It may depend on the store, so you should ask.
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. 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.
