Box Spring / July 25, 2018 / Marveille.
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.
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.
Realistically from all of the research I have done on this (and with a girlfriend that constantly debates this point with me Ive done my share of research) I have concluded that box springs only do two things well and that is 1. increase the overall height of the bed and 2. soften the overall firmness of the bed (given that the box spring is not extremely firm). Helping the mattress last longer is a distant distant and arguable third. As a person who neither cares for a tall bed nor a soft bed I found that platform beds are the most stylishly modern environmentally-friendly pieces of furniture to complement my mattress. You simply dont need a box spring for your mattress/bed.
