Supporting Your Mattress

A box spring (or foundation) is a wooden frame with either springs or metal rods that provides proper support to a mattress. Using a box spring under your mattress ensures that it receives the necessary support to reach its maximum lifespan. Foundations will raise the height of your mattress from the ground which usually makes it easier to get in and out of bed, and come in standard and low-profile sizes to get the height you want. Box springs are also designed to absorb shock and reduce wear on the mattress and bed frame, extending the life of your entire bed set. In a complete bed set, foundations are typically placed on top of a wooden or metal bed frame that is connected to the headboard and footboard. Most manufacturers require that a mattress be supported by a box spring in order to file a warranty claim. Some exceptions may include platform bed and adjustable base alternatives.

Standard and Low-Profile Foundations

Since modern mattresses are quite a bit taller than they used to be, many manufacturers now produce low-profile foundations in addition to the standard size. Low-profile box springs provide the same amount of support as standard size box springs, but are shorter to reduce the distance from the ground. Standard foundations measure about 9-inches in height, and low-profile foundations measure between 5- and 5.5-inches. The different heights make no difference in the amount of support provided, and are merely for aesthetics and convenience when getting in and out of bed. Find the right box spring for your bed today!
