WHAT’S A BOXSPRING
A box spring is a bed base with a wooden frame and either actual springs or metal rods that provide support to a mattress. It is a type of mattress foundation. The box spring is usually the same size as the mattress that sits on it. While the mattress provides support to the human body, the box spring ensures that the mattress itself is properly supported. It provides a stable surface for your mattress to rest on and absorbs shock, reducing wear on the mattress. This helps ensure your mattress maintains a long comfort life and provides you with a good night’s sleep.
There are a few beneficial reasons for using a box spring bed base, such as:
They add height. A box spring is a way to provide a free-standing platform to your bed without needing to purchase a metal bed frame. Whether you choose a low- or high-profile box spring, raising your bed off the ground can create easier access, reducing the risk of potential injury over time. A box spring gives your mattress a flat, even surface to rest upon, which can be beneficial for your spine, positively affecting your sleep quality.
They provide extra support. Sleeping or other movements can cause wear or degradation to your mattress over time. However, a quality box spring can absorb shock and help protect your mattress while also helping keep your mattress’s center from sagging, increasing its durability.
They aid in ventilation. Air circulation is necessary to keep your mattress fresh and mildew-free. With a box spring, you increase the breathability of your mattress, preventing the build-up of dust mites or other harmful allergens that can affect the quality of your sleep.
The good old ordinary bed requires no introduction- it’s been around for centuries- and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be overtaken in popularity anytime soon.
A standard modern adjustable bed instead is a bed consisting of a combination of three-part adjustable bases that can be independently lowered and raised at will. It was originally developed in the early twentieth century and used in healthcare institutes.
In its current state, it is a highly luxurious commodity with models geared towards a diverse range of consumer segments. An electric bed has a few benefits such as better pain relief and recovery, better chance of achieving a comfortable resting position, allows sitting or leaning in a more convenient, relaxed manner and split options that let you relax independently from your partner.
