Box Spring / July 28, 2018 / Lucille.
Its best to first review your mattress manufactures guideline on how to properly set up your mattress. Many mattresses require you to have a box spring. This box spring ensures your getting adequate back support. Incorrect box springs can cause lumps and dips. The result can cause severe pain in your body or maybe worse less quality of sleep. Remember that its important to review the guideline. Improper setup could possibly void your warranty.
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.
