What's a box spring?


A box spring is basically used to support a mattress. It is usually made out of a wooden skeleton with a hard top that creates a flat hard surface across to provide support for the mattress. Box springs work for innerspring, memory foam and latex mattresses as the slats are close and the top surface is hard.

How do box springs work?

Box springs work by providing support for the mattress. They help to keep the mattress from sagging and becoming lumpy over time. Additionally, box springs create a firm surface for the mattress to rest on, which can be beneficial for people who have back problems.
