Box Spring. Sunday , September 10th , 2017 - 04:20:29 AM
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.
More important than how long your bedding will last or how comfortable you are, is the safety of purchasing new mattresses and putting them on old box springs. The risk is that the older ones may not meet flammability standards and thereby put you more at risk even if your bedding does meet the standards. If you have gone to various mattress stores, and you have been encouraged at each one to purchase both bedding and box springs, it is still up to you.
