What is a box spring all about?

Have you ever wondered what's inside that boxspring the bed companies sell you to put under your mattress? Some mattress companies even make you buy one or threaten to discontinue your mattress warranty. Well, we're going to find out what's inside... just for fun, we're going to rip apart this perfectly good boxspring just to see what it's made of (because we're crazy like that).

New box spring
As it turns out, there's just a few small 1.5" wide wood slats covered by thin cloth and cardboard. This is what's supposed to protect your mattress from sagging.

If it looks fairly unsubstantial, well, it is! Why bother paying extra for a cheap boxspring when our beds support the mattress even better? We use wide slats, and more of them, to protect your mattress investment for the long haul. No boxspring required!

Mass produced bed frames

Our bed frames use no plastic parts, or cheap mass produced weaknesses. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. The bed shown below has a strong, stiff, and expensive metal frame, but sits on cheap plastic wheels that can weaken over time and eventually break. This frame is riveted together and there is no easy or cheap way to fix this issue.

Bed frame with broken plastic wheel Don't let this happen to you! Our bed frames are structurally designed around the hard use of kids. They have gone through extensive testing involving weight testing, jumping, tantrums, and almost literally anything your child can throw at them. Whatever bed design you buy from us, rest assured that each piece is either handmade or purchased with structural integrity in mind!
