What is happening at our store and in our industry

Mattresses are expensive products that you use often. Ensuring that they last and keep their shape is important for both your wallet and the quality of sleep that you receive. While box springs are not necessary for every bedroom set up, there are a few reasons that purchasing a box spring may be a good choice for you.

Here at Wholesale Mattress Company, we want your mattress to last and also deliver the best sleep possible! We understand that superior sleep can help you succeed during the day, which is why our team is always ready to help you. Here are a few reasons that adding a box spring to your mattress purchase may be for the best:

What is a boxspring?

Often mistaken for a mattress foundation, box springs are more than a base that your mattress sits upon. Often composed of springs and other materials, box springs are best to separate the innerspring mattress from the bed frame. Since innerspring mattresses are made of springs that compress and release with their movements, box springs can help to absorb any shocks that fast movements might have on the springs, resulting in a longer lasting mattress.

When you might need a boxspring:

While a boxspring is not necessary in all cases, there are a few instances where they may be the best option to help your mattress last:

Unsupportive Bed Frames

Lots of bed frames do not have supportive boards or pieces that help to hold the mattress in the middle. Box frames are made of materials that will help create a harder frame for your mattress to lay upon.

Many metal and collapsible bed frames will require a boxspring as they will not include the necessary supportive pieces. Wooden and platform style bed frames may not require the purchase and use of a box spring.

Extra Height

Besides their functional purposes, box springs simply add more height to a bed set up. Standard box springs are about nine inches in height, with others available in thicker and thinner sizes. This extra height can be useful for a few of reasons:

  • Design of the room: Box springs may help with the design of a room, specifically the headboard or wall design that is present. Box springs also allow for the option of a bed skirt to be used.
  • Moving around: Box springs may help elevate a mattress to a more optimal height for getting in and out of bed. This could be especially useful for those that are elderly or have mobility challenges.


When purchasing a mattress you may not fully read the warranty, but with the array of mattress types available on the market it is important to know the details of your specific product.

Many non-memory foam style mattresses require the use of a box spring in order for the warranty to be valid. This is due to the fact that an unsupportive foundation could cause an innerspring mattress to become a victim of wear and tear at a faster rate.

Here at Wholesale Mattress Center, we want your mattress set up to be the best that it can be. While a big factor, your sleep does not simply involve the mattress that you lay upon. Other factors such as box springs can also have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep. Contact us today and let one of our experts help you find the perfect bedroom set up!
