Bed height and upgradeability
Many customers believe that you can only achieve a nice entry height with a boxspring bed. With a classic bed frame and a mattress-slatted-frame-combination, it is just as possible to achieve a bed height of up to 70 cm.
Upgradeability: You buy a box spring bed without motors because it is too expensive at the moment. However, for medical or other reasons, you will need an upper body or leg raising bed in a few years. In a “normal” bed, you can replace the “normal” the slatted frame, which is not possible with the box spring system. Especially for older people, this often leads to a new purchase.
Boxspring beds are not a bad thing in general. There are quite good and durable systems that many people sleep well on. These beds usually start in price ranges from about €3,000 for a double bed. Boxspring bed for a few hundred euros will not make you happy in the long run. You pay the low price with short durability. Often this adds up to an even higher price in total (buying a new bed every few years) than buying the more expensive one in the first place.
If you are one of those people who could be sold a box spring system with a clear conscience, then there is also the possibility of equipping the existing bed frame with it. There are also good box spring systems that can be inserted. Not everyone knows that. This way you might be able to save the costs for a new bed frame.
Tips for buying a bed
You probably have already realised that this topic is very complex, like all topics related to healthy sleep.
In this article, I simply want to point out that a boxspring bed is not automatically the solution to your needs. Always get a second opinion before buying one – this applies to any new sleep system.
Don’t buy a bed, regardless of the system, without really talking to a professional about it.
Out of ten customers who come to me to buy a boxspring bed, nine will buy a different system and they are happy with it.
By the way, you don’t have to miss out on the boxspring look. If you like these high upholstered headboards there are plenty “normal” bed frames with those headboards. And quite often they are cheaper.
