What are the differences between a box spring, a foundation and a platform?

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Jun 17, 2014 11:40:40 AM

IT'S VERY EASY to be confused about these three mattress terms – foundation, box spring and foundation – especially since the industry routinely misuses the terms (even Verlo). We asked one of our Comfort Coaches, Nancy Quesada, to help explain the differences.

Do I Need To Purchase A Box Spring With My New Mattress?

Posted by Julie Tramonte on May 19, 2014 5:05:22 PM
Absolutely not. At Verlo, we don’t force you to buy a box spring with your new mattress. But you may want to, depending on how old your box spring is.Technology has changed quite a bit since your old box spring was probably purchased – 10, 15 or 20 years ago. Most likely, your old box spring has coils in it, which provide “give” or movement. Putting a mattress that “gives,” on top of a box spring that also “gives” can make your mattress feel softer. The coils in box springs can also start squeaking as time goes on, and those metal coils make the box spring incredibly heavy to move.

If your old mattress had body impressions or gullies, they may have transferred to your box spring as well. If you put a new mattress on top of an old box spring with existing body impressions, the mattress will begin to fill in the existing gully and develop body impressions prematurely.

How Do I Flip My Mattress?

One of our Facebook friends recently asked us how to flip a double-sided mattress. We’re glad they did because mattresses should be flipped on a regular basis to extend the life of the mattress. But more importantly, you need to know the correct way to do it so you don’t hurt yourself or knock things over in your bedroom. (Imagine Ke$ha singing, “It’s going down, I’m yelling timber!”)

We prepared this short video to demonstrate the proper way for one person to flip a double-sided mattress.
