Box Spring / July 21, 2018 / Alita.
More important than how long your bedding will last or how comfortable you are is the safety of purchasing new mattresses and putting them on old box springs. The risk is that the older ones may not meet flammability standards and thereby put you more at risk even if your bedding does meet the standards. If you have gone to various mattress stores and you have been encouraged at each one to purchase both bedding and box springs it is still up to you.
You need to really be creative and think out of the box. Spring is such a wonderful time of year because it gives us so many options of different things we can wear however this can just as easily become something negative since the demands due to the irregularity and ever fluctuating season can force us to have to constantly readjust our outfits. Some people welcome this while others dread it and it always becomes a matter of personal opinion and preference at this point and stage. One thing is for absolute sure you must learn to adapt to the climate outside and always have the right plus size spring coats backed up somewhere in your closest ready to come out and provide that sense of fashion and luxury you need whatever the occasion may be.
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.
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.
