Marveille. Box Spring. September 18th , 2017.
When your bed has worn out, and you know it is time for a change, you should realize that you will need to purchase the box springs as well. Some mattress stores would say this is very important because the springs help keep the bedding in good shape for longer because the two are meant to work together. They would also say it is important because of the concerns with fires. It may be that yours do not meet the standard.
Platform beds look better, as well. The removal of the box spring simplifies the overall appearance of the bed, giving it a streamlined and trendy appearance. Many platform beds have European or Asian-themed designs, and can make your home look more contemporary. A platform beds low profile allows it to take up slightly less space and thus fit better in a wider variety of bedrooms. This freedom of placement is another of the many benefits of owning a platform bed.
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.
Anyone who has had to move recently will remember how challenging it was to move the mattress. Depending on the type of mattress you probably felt like you were moving a very large, awkward, limp noodle. Many modern mattresses lack internal structures to hold them rigid. This helps a great deal when negotiating corners, but does not help when moving in a straight line. The box spring, on the other hand, with its rigid structure was probably at its most difficult when it came to doorways and stairs. The very strong structure that supports your bed was keeping it from turning and moving perhaps even that one inch more. People who move regularly, such as young adults and military families, are well advised to consider buying two smaller mattresses and putting them together to create a larger bed. Smaller mattresses and box springs are easier to move.
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.
