Foundations usually consists of a wooden frame and slats and are an essential part of your bedroom decor. Let’s take a look at a few common inquiries that may make your shopping experience here at City Furniture easier.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a foundation and a box spring?
Ah, the age old question. Here’s a quick breakdown to make the difference clear.
Box Spring: A wooden-framed box with supporting coils or “springs” inside. Box springs are excellent bases for innerspring mattresses since they help distribute the weight of the mattress evenly. Note: The majority of box springs sit on a metal bed frame.
Foundation: These are more firm bases than box springs because they’re spring-less, which makes them the perfect base for your foam or hybrid mattress.
Do I need a foundation for my mattress?
While putting your mattress on the floor is an option, it is an eye-sore that takes away from the look and feel of your bedroom. Having a foundation provides airflow to your mattress, aids comfortable sleep by providing support and prevents your mattress from sagging. The foundation helps you protect your investment in your beloved mattress.
What is a bunky board?
Bunky boards are created to work with traditional metal frames and provide support to beds being used without a foundation. In summary, it is a thick, durable piece of plywood that’s used to make box springs more firm and supportive.
