Queen Box SpringIf you are in the market for a queen box spring set, there are a number of options for you to choose from. Your selections will have different quality, price, height, materials and should properly support your current mattress. Although you may spend more time looking for the right mattress, spending the time to find the right box spring is also important.
Beds come in several sizes of which queen is one of the more popular sizes that is available. The queen size falls in between double or standard and king. Some queen box spring sets are one unit while others are offered in a two-piece unit. Why would this matter and what else should you consider when choosing a box spring?
One or Two Piece?
Since a queen sized bed is of a rather large size, but not too big, a one piece queen box spring will need to be quite sturdy and strong. Enough to properly support a queen mattress plus the weight of the sleeping individuals on top of the mattress. Since the average box spring is made of wood, perhaps some metal straps and/or springs and material the frame for a one-piece must be provide sufficient support. On the other hand for a two-piece unit, there is more support offered around the edges as well as in the middle so the construction will be different.
Low, Mid or Standard Profile
It used to be that there was only one size of box spring. Today there are options to suit a variety of needs and uses. Box springs can be purchased with a low profile which gives a more streamlined look or for those who need it a little easier to get into bed. A mid profile style is of course between the low and the standard profile. The standard is of course what we are used to seeing. How much difference in height is there?
- low profile has about a 5 inch height
- mid profile has a 7 inch height
- standard profile has a 9 inch height
Due to the need of changing needs and wants, most manufacturer's today offer each height so that your choices for a bed are almost unlimited. If you are considering a low profile option, ensure that the quality of construction will meet the needs the queen box spring will be used for. You may want to choose a two-piece box spring set for more durability and strength.
If the box spring will be used for a guest room, then you may not care about the quality or the height. However, not all box springs are made the same so if you are going to spend several hundred dollars, don't you want the best for your money? Whether you chose a store brand or a household name brand, get the best you can as it only makes sense.
Having a queen sized bed is the perfect size as it's not too big or too small and will fit into most bedrooms. Choosing a comparable queen box spring will ensure that you get proper support for your mattress and a good night's sleep.
