At Nothing But Beds, we understand that choosing the right mattress is only half the battle. The other half is deciding whether you need a boxspring or foundation to go with it. A boxspring is a foundation that supports your mattress, helping it last longer and providing a comfortable sleeping experience. But how do you know when you need one? Here’s our comprehensive guide to help you decide.
First, let’s talk about what a boxspring is and what it does. A boxspring typically comprises a wooden frame with a grid of metal springs or slats covered by a fabric or mesh layer. It’s designed to absorb shock and weight evenly across the mattress, preventing sagging or damage over time. It also raises the height of your mattress, making it easier to get in and out of bed.
Now, let’s answer the question: When do you need a boxspring? Here are some factors to consider:
- Mattress type: Some mattresses, such as memory foam or latex, don’t require a boxspring as they already have built-in support. However, some mattresses, such as innerspring or hybrid, may benefit from a boxspring’s extra support and durability.
- Bed frame: You may not need a boxspring if you have a platform bed with slats or a solid base. However, if you have an older bed frame with no support, a boxspring can help distribute weight evenly and prevent damage to your mattress.
- Height preference: A boxspring can add height to your mattress if you prefer a taller bed. However, a boxspring may be unnecessary if you have a low ceiling or prefer a lower bed.
- Warranty: Check your mattress warranty to see if it requires a boxspring. Using a boxspring may be necessary to keep your warranty valid.
