Box Spring / July 21, 2018 / Babette.
Platform beds are increasingly popular today. The way they are made does not necessitate having a box spring. Mattress stores suggest that a box spring is much stronger than the wood frames of the past. This may or may not mean that your platform bed has inadequate support. That is really up to you. It is important that you do everything you can to help your bedding last. It is also important to do all you can to stay comfortable as you sleep. It may be that purchasing a new box spring every time you purchase mattresses will save you in the end because it may extend the life of your bed.
One of the best ways that you can make your life easier is to make sure that you are able to get enough sleep every night. Sleep deprivation can come from a lot of different things including anxiety stress a very busy schedule and more. But one of the biggest reasons that a lot of people do not get a lot of sleep is that they do not have a bed that is comfortable! Having a comfortable bed is one of those things that is very easy to over look. There are so many expenses that we can tend to forget about fixing things that arent yet broken. But investing the money to get a comfortable mattress is definitely money well spent. Lets take a look at some of the different types of mattresses you can get.
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.
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.
