Box Spring / July 20, 2018 / Roesia Merle.
Today with comfort zones targeted at various positions along the mattress this rotation is no longer suggested and the handles which would often break when holding the weight of the entire mattress were removed. It is very important when moving a mattress from one home to another to cover it somehow. Dont rely on a sheet either. Many stores that stock boxes and other packing material will have plastic bags large enough to enclose the mattress and box spring. This is essential for keeping dirt and water from damaging the set. These bags may come complete with handles or one can also use a very long piece of rope to create a handle. It is just like trussing up a turkey. Be sure to draw the rope all around the mattress and distribute the weight of the mattress as evenly as possible.
Some moving suppliers will have boxes specially designed for standard bed sizes. This can be a big help for keeping the mattress stable during transport. Padding around the box spring is also recommended to keep the harder lower corners from putting little dents in the wall. There can never be enough padding on furniture while it moves in and out of the home. There most damage done to the wall and floors occur because large heavy objects are dropped or swung around too fast. Caution and a good blanket for cushion can prevent a lot of heart ache later.
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.
If you simply cannot afford it then that is all there is to it. If you think yours do not meet the standard then you can get rid of them but you will want some form of support. If you cannot afford box springs wood supports are an option even though they may not be as strong. If you choose not to buy box springs you should check and make sure any bedding you purchase are still under warranty. Since the mattress stores believe it helps mattresses to last they may only let the warranty work if you purchase both together. It may depend on the store so you should ask.
