Roesia Merle Box Spring September 19th, 2017 - 08:47:39
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.
At the most basic level, you can get a box spring mattress. These beds are very traditional and have been around for decades. If you have never slept on anything else, then a box spring bed will feel completely normal. However, they tend to cause discomfort because they do not allow your body to maintain a neutral spine while sleep. If you want to go the extra mile and experience a new level of comfort, then you should think about getting one of the newer types of mattresses that are currently on the market.
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.
Of all the benefits to platform beds, none is as helpful and noticeable as the end to box springs. Box springs have always been more of a hassle than anything else, and can even ruin the comfort brought about by a nice, new mattress. The idea is that a standard bed frame cannot support a mattress directly. The box spring rests between the mattress and the frame, providing "durable" balance and foundation. In reality, the box spring creaks, wears out, and even breaks after continuous use. The problem is introducing an additional element to the bed - an element that typically doesnt have the strength to last very long without becoming an issue. Platform beds remedy this problem by removing the box spring from the equation altogether.
