Foundations and Box Springs

If you need to complete an existing set, look no further than our foundations! We offer many options from inexpensive wood foundations to steel reinforced Triton foundations. We even have a foundation that includes its own frame, and leaves more room under the bed for storage!


Why Every Spring Mattress Needs a Foundation

Great sleep starts from the ground up — to provide the most support possible, all innerspring-style mattresses are designed to be used with a box spring or foundation or on a platform bed. Adding a mattress foundation absorbs weight much in the way that the shocks on your car absorb the impact of bumps and potholes in the road. This prolongs the life of your mattress by reducing the amount of pressure being put on its coils. It may also make for a more comfortable night’s sleep, as your mattress will be less prone to sagging.

If you have any questions about whether or not a foundation is necessary for your mattress, the Dr Snooze sales team will be happy to help — contact us by phone or email, or you can visit us in person at our Ocala, Florida showroom.


Choosing a Box Spring

There are a number of things to keep in mind when choosing a mattress foundation. Size is an important consideration — obviously, a twin size mattress requires a twin size mattress foundation, just as a queen or full size requires a queen or full size mattress foundation.

Aside from that, however, the additional height a mattress foundation adds is important too. For certain pillow top models, a standard size box spring may be uncomfortably high for some sleepers. For this reason, low profile mattress foundations are available that give you the benefits of a box spring while keeping your bed at an accessible height.

For queen size and smaller beds, mattress foundations are almost always one piece. King size mattress foundations are split in two, making them easier to navigate up narrow stairwells and through door frames. Other consideration when buying a new mattress foundation include the manufacturer’s warranty, the quality of the construction and the materials used — many manufacturers now offer box springs made of hypoallergenic or organic components.


When to Replace Your Box Spring

Box springs wear out over time and should always be replaced when you buy a new bed. Even if you have no immediate plans to replace your mattress, check your foundation periodically for signs of wear, including squeaks and creaking noises, bends and sagging, and poor weight distribution. In many cases, what has been thought to be a problem with a mattress was actually due to an aging foundation. If you’re on the fence about buying a new mattress, you may want to try upgrading your box spring first and see if it improves your sleep.
