Box Spring Covers


We get lots of questions from people wanting to know 3 things when it comes to box springs.

What are box springs?

A box spring provides support for your mattress and is usually constructed from a wooden frame, covered in cloth with springs in the middle. It really is a box with springs.

They are made the same size as your mattress. king, California king and split queen mattresses are the exception, they are the same length as the mattress but half the width

What does a box spring do?

  1. They raise the mattress higher off the ground so it is easier for you to get out of bed.
  2. Absorb impact and reduce the wear on the mattress.
  3. Gives the mattress a strong, flat surface to sit on.

Do I need to encase or cover the box springs?

For complete protection, we recommend that you always encase your box springs. The good news is you don't have to spend a lot of money.
