Box Spring / July 21, 2018 / Calandre.
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 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.
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.
Many people love platform beds because of their low profile. The bed might be comfortable for people who do not like to sit up high in their beds. Or maybe even have health issues like back and knee pain which makes it difficult for them. It just makes it easier for them to get out of bed. Unfortunately not too many people understand how to correctly put a mattress on top of a platform bed.
