Box Springs 101

A box spring Furniture 101:
A box spring is a working foundation with springs that’s placed underneath...
is an important component of a mattress. Besides providing support, it can also help increase the longevity of your mattress. So be sure to use the specific box spring intended for your mattress. Mattresses and box springs are designed to work together, and mismatching may cause comfort and quality issues.

Standard Box Spring

Split Box Spring

Low-Profile Box Spring

Low-Profile Split Box-Spring

Low-Profile Box Springs: Approximately three to four inches shorter than a standard size box spring, a low-profile box spring allows you to position your mattress closer to the floor. Some people like low-profile box springs because they make it easier to get in and out of bed, while others just prefer the way a lower-sitting bed looks.

Split Box Springs: Because of their substantial size, king mattresses include two split box springs instead of one larger box spring. They're easier to maneuver down tight hallways, through narrow doorways and up steps. Split box springs are also available in a low-profile design and as an option for many queen mattresses.
