Halette. Box Spring. October 10th , 2017.
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.
Do I need a Box Spring for my Mattress? This question comes up at least once during bed shopping for 90% of all people. And for good reason. Box Springs are a multi-million dollar, multi-million tree chopping industry. So in light of the green revolution (re-co-lu-tion?) these days, one can only wonder: is there really a reason for all the senseless killing of defenseless trees just to have an extra foot of wood, fabric, and air underneath your fully functional mattress? As it turns out, the answer is both a resounding no with a hint of yes. The real kicker here is that most modern box springs dont actually have "springs" in them, which basically leaves just the "box" part as a truth. And this is exactly what they are, a wood-framed box covered with fabric. All of the bells, whistles, and 21st century technology go into the mattress part of the bed, which, if you were a well-informed bed shopper, could take on all sorts of exotic construction from innerspring, foam, visco-elastic (memory) foam, flotation (water), or air.
Many people love platform beds because of their low profile. The bed might be comfortable for people who do not like to sit up high in their beds. Or maybe even have health issues like back and knee pain which makes it difficult for them. It just makes it easier for them to get out of bed. Unfortunately, not too many people understand how to correctly put a mattress on top of a platform bed.
The Big Problem With Mattress Encasings is Taking Them Off To Clean Them And Then Having To Put Them Back On! Heres The Answer There is a simple solution to this problem and you can save money by not having to search for and purchase the much more expensive mattress encasings that are on the market. All you have to do is purchase a mattress cover to place over a less expensive but still quality dust mite proof mattress encasing. Mattress covers can also add comfort to your bed, they are reasonably priced and easy to find online, at Wal-Mart, Linens And Things and other department stores.
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.
