If It Says No Boxspring Required Can I Do It Anyway?

If It Says No Boxspring Required Can I Do It Anyway?

This is what I was looking at:

Sure you can the mattress police won’t come for you I can promise you that much. However, the bed may not look so great when you are finished. It may hide the headboard or be way too tall when making it. Another issue is that it will likely be very awkward at best for entering and exiting when you go to bed or wake up.

There are two main reasons for using something like a Smart Base from Glideaway

  1. If your traditional box spring will not fit upstairs or around a tight turn the Smartbase is a great choice. It eliminates the need for a split boxspring or a boxspring period for that matter. This unit is very mobile and can easily fit and maneuver up and through tight stairways with no problems what so ever and then be assembled in the room of your choice.
  2. Perhaps you need more storage space under the bed. This replaces a traditional steel bed frame that typically sits approximately 7-8 inches off the floor. By eliminating the box spring foundation and making the legs somewhat taller to replace it the mattress remains easy to get in and out of due to the reasonable overall bed height. But hey who wants to get out of bed right? You can still connect to this to your existing headboard or complete headboard footboard set by using a Smartbase.

If neither applies to you then a standard bed frame will work fine and cost you less money if you already own a box spring. If you don’t have one you will most likely be overspending by as much as $100.00
