Box Spring / August 4, 2018 / Marveille.
With platform beds the mattress rests directly on the frame. The frame contains slats of wood stretching from side to side and these provide more than enough support for the mattress. Thus a nice bed frame and a nice mattress can finally exist in harmony without the cumbersome presence of a box spring. This makes overall use of the bed much simpler. For one thing creaking will be in the past. The springs inside a box spring tend to rust and wear out over time and this creates audible and annoying noise. The solid construction of platform beds prevents unnecessary shifting and eliminates the noise problem.
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.
Customers who are laid back when it comes to bedroom furniture often choose box spring type beds. One thing that must be considered when buying pack spring type bed is the coils ability to withstand body weight. Box spring shock-absorbing performance wears off as the time goes by. The average expected life of a mattress and box spring is eight to 10 years. On the other hand you dont have to worry yourself such issues with the platform bed. Its base made of flat hard base is enough to support a mattress much reliable compared to pack spring type of bed. Since it is made of a hard platform it can support the mattress even without a foundation underneath. This will save you money that you can use towards buying a good-quality mattress or bedroom accessories.
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.
