What is box spring?
Often the name of box spring can be a bit confusing to many of you to really understand what role does it play in your bed. Essentially, box spring is considered as a supportive square which lifts up the mattress.
Nowadays many of the manufacturers of mattresses do not use any box spring too.
However, quite a few of the manufacturers of mattresses still have springs placed inside the mattress with the aim of helping the bed to absorb the weight of the person sleeping on it.
Ultimately, the spring will help to keep the bed sturdy as well as support over time. In case of firmer mattresses, such springs placed inside will make you feel that you are sleeping on much softer bed than what really it is.

Finally, unless you find something to be placed in the room which is not aesthetically quite pleasing and also not so comfortable, then most likely you will prefer to invest on box spring.
However, in case, money is not of much concern then you may prefer to look into certain adjustable base meant for your bed.
