Box Spring / July 18, 2018 / Voletta.
More bedroom furniture manufacturers produce platform beds nowadays to follow the current trend in design which is the minimalist. Because of the platform beds simple and clean designs it goes well with any minimalist design. The beds frame can be turn into shelves and drawers making it an ideal storage. Clutter and space are now taken care of. One third of your life is spent sleeping; so if a person lives 80 years 10 years of it was spent sleeping. Now with such duration it is a must to buy a durable and comfortable bed. You dont want to suffer a backache due to uncomfortable bed for 10 years right? Choose a bed and mattress that suits your needs is an investment in your overall health and well being. Each and every one of us deserves a sound sleep after a hard days or work.
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.
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.
Todays newer materials are smooth not crunchy and are far more durable and comfortable to sleep on. We recommend that you purchase NON-Membrane mattress encasings that are cool to sleep on and can be safely dried in a cool to warm temperature clothes dryer. REMEMBER it is the hot water in your washing machine that kills the dust mites and flushes away the dust mite and pet dander allergen. NOTE: There is no need to dry your encasings in a hot dryer and your encasings will last longer when dried in a cool to warm dryer! Waterproofing your mattress encasing If you need to totally waterproof your mattress encasing the answer is very easy and inexpensive! Instead of purchasing a more expensive water proof mattress encasings or waterproof mattress cover that will have to be washed anyway if the person has an accident just cover your mattress encasing with a sturdy but thin sheet of inexpensive waterproof material such as plastic vinyl or nylon that can easily be wiped off or replaced if an accident occurs.
