Question:

I don’t want to go through the hassle of flipping my mattress so I purchased a brand name 1 sided mattress. The bed didn’t last very long and seems to be nothing more than over priced crap.

What Happened To Boxsprings?

Penny for your thoughts?

Like most people I’m not sure I can think of many things that I have given less thought to than the boxspring under my mattress. The truth be told, who really cares anyway, it’s just a boxspring and mine looks just like it did the day I bought it right?  Wrong, the fact is the mattress buying public is unschooled and downright illiterate about everything boxspring and foundation related and the industry as a whole is doing nothing to change this. In fact they actually seem to make it more confusing. The point to be made here is that our core base mattress support system could be devolving from a so-called advanced state of design to something far less durable and second-rate and we can’t see it happening or just how this might affect us or our wallets.

Mattresses play a large role in our health and wellness and even influence our moods. The recommended daily amount of sleep is about 7 to 8 hours per day and at that rate, we spend about a third of our lives sleeping. An old, worn out mattress can wreak havoc on your back and joints, not to mention decreasing how well-rested you feel when you wake up in the morning. Don’t spend a third of your life on a decrepit mattress that hurts your back and leaves you waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Instead, you may want to consider a new organic latex mattress.
