Is Box Spring Necessary For Bed That Lays On A Carpeted Floor?

by | Nov 5, 2020 | Furniture FAQs, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Most “box springs” being sold today are actually foundation platforms. They are plywood boxes with a very thin layer of padding at the top.

The primary purpose of these foundations is to add height to the sleeping surface.

With a good quality mattress that is at least 10 inches thick, the added foundation makes only a slight difference in either the comfort or the lifespan of the mattress.

The combination of a steel bed frame (or siderails connecting a headboard and footboard), a foundation (or box spring) and a mattress, pus the sleeping surface at the height most people prefer.
