Mattress Box Spring. Why do I need one?

Why do I need a Box Spring?

A box spring along with a mattress are engineered to work together as a set. The foundation takes a lot of the nightly wear and tear, and contributes to the bed’s overall comfort and support. It is recommended that you purchase a matching box spring for each conventional mattress you get. Most of the manufacturers make universal foundations that work with all the mattresses they handle. Some collections come with special made box springs. Keep in mind that box springs may vary in sizes and shapes, so the wrong foundation will impede comfort and reduce the useful life of your new mattress.

What is a “Split Box Spring”?

A split box spring is a regular mattress foundation made up of two separate pieces placed side-by-side. Split box springs are made for delivery purposes. If your foundation is needed to be delivered to the place with tight doorways, staircases or narrow corners consider buying a split box. Queen and Full box springs come in both whole and split types. All King size mattresses use split foundations. Only order split boxes if necessary, since they cost more than a one piece box.
