Box Spring / September 18, 2017 / Pierrette Segal
Since most box springs are hard mattresses are designed to work perfectly well on just about any firm hard surface. The floor is one. Ive slept on a mattress on the floor for a good 8 years and I can personally vouch for the undiminished comfort of such a setup. If there is one key argument for box springs it is that certain touted mattress manufacturers will claim that a box spring can extend the life of a mattress. This statement is true only to the extent of the box spring providing additional spring cushioning absorbing some of the wear that is normally exhibited onto the mattress itself. These manufacturers typically provide a box spring with their mattress one that they say is specifically designed to be used with that mattress.
The new type of bed that is becoming very popular is a memory foam mattress. These beds are made of a special foam that lets you spine maintain more a of straight line. This can decompress the vertebrae from the position the would be in if you had a box spring mattress. Memory foam beds are available in all different sizes including single twin full queen etc. They also go well when used as a single or twin canopy bed. If you think a memory foam mattress may be a good fit for you then you should definitely think about going and trying some out. You can go to a store that sells them and lay on a few of the floor models. This way you can see what feels good and compare the prices as well. Spending the extra money on a memory foam mattress can seem a little costly but in the long run they are money well spent.
Today with comfort zones targeted at various positions along the mattress this rotation is no longer suggested and the handles which would often break when holding the weight of the entire mattress were removed. It is very important when moving a mattress from one home to another to cover it somehow. Dont rely on a sheet either. Many stores that stock boxes and other packing material will have plastic bags large enough to enclose the mattress and box spring. This is essential for keeping dirt and water from damaging the set. These bags may come complete with handles or one can also use a very long piece of rope to create a handle. It is just like trussing up a turkey. Be sure to draw the rope all around the mattress and distribute the weight of the mattress as evenly as possible.
