Bedroom Furniture Dilemma – Box Spring or Platform Bed
Over the years bedroom furniture designs evolved through the years. Before the popularity of platform beds, the box spring bed dominated the bedroom scene. Box springs have coils to support the mattress. The coils provide extra resiliency and serves as a shock absorber as the body weights presses on. Platform bed on the other hand supports the mattress with a hard raised wooden platform minus the spring or coil.
Customers who are laid back when it comes to bedroom furniture often choose box spring type beds. One thing that must be considered when buying pack spring type bed is the coil’s ability to withstand body weight. Box spring shock-absorbing performance wears off as the time goes by. The average expected life of a mattress and box spring is eight to 10 years.
On the other hand, you don’t have to worry yourself such issues with the platform bed. Its base made of flat hard base is enough to support a mattress, much reliable compared to pack spring type of bed. Since it is made of a hard platform, it can support the mattress even without a foundation underneath. This will save you money that you can use towards buying a good-quality mattress or bedroom accessories.
More bedroom furniture manufacturers produce platform beds nowadays to follow the current trend in design which is the minimalist. Because of the platform bed’s simple and clean designs it goes well with any minimalist design. The bed’s frame can be turn into shelves and drawers making it an ideal storage. Clutter and space are now taken care of.
