Pierrette Segal. Box Spring. September 10th , 2017.
After finding a company that you feel comfortable with, call their scheduling department, or order online, and set up an appointment. A reputable company will give you a time window that they will be there and will call ahead to let you know when they are on their way. These are little things to make the experience better for the customer. 3 More often than not, especially in Indiana, you will not be able to donate these items, nor mattresses. This is the case because second hand mattresses are notorious for passing on second hand bed bugs. So, it is now becoming standard that these items have to be disposed of; worry not, they can, however, be recycled. In Indianapolis, we take them to a recycling center called DAO and are at least able to make the customers happy about the recycling element rather than the mattresses ending up in the dump or landfill.
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.
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.
Over the years bedroom furniture designs evolved through the years. Before the popularity of platform beds, the box spring bed dominated the bedroom scene. Box springs have coils to support the mattress. The coils provide extra resiliency and serves as a shock absorber as the body weights presses on. Platform bed on the other hand supports the mattress with a hard raised wooden platform minus the spring or coil.
