Box Spring / July 19, 2018 / Lucille.
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.
Taking all of this into consideration having more a few different types of spring coats is going to be the safest bet to cover all of your bases and keep your not only looking fashionable but more importantly also warm and dry. You cannot go wrong with a plus size wool coat or even a blazer for those warmer months. The most important type of jacket or coat you can own during this season is hands down a good plus size raincoat since they are the safest bet in terms of providing significant warmth and protection against the weird elements during this time of the year. Investing into an elegant raincoat and matching accessories is a must but it is also not practical to wear during the hotter days; this is where you need to diversify and begin to add various other spring outerwear and clothing into your wardrobe.
Of all the benefits to platform beds none is as helpful and noticeable as the end to box springs. Box springs have always been more of a hassle than anything else and can even ruin the comfort brought about by a nice new mattress. The idea is that a standard bed frame cannot support a mattress directly. The box spring rests between the mattress and the frame providing "durable" balance and foundation. In reality the box spring creaks wears out and even breaks after continuous use. The problem is introducing an additional element to the bed - an element that typically doesnt have the strength to last very long without becoming an issue. Platform beds remedy this problem by removing the box spring from the equation altogether.
If all else fails then the best solution is to measure the width and length of the bed. Use these measurements and cut out a plywood deck. I would recommend cutting them into 2 or 3 smaller pieces. Cutting one large plywood deck can be difficult especially if you have a larger size like a king or queen. Once again though check with your manufacturers guide. The flat foundation could possibly make the mattress less comfortable.
