A good nights rest is one of the most important things for some people. They will go to great lengths to find a bed and mattress that will provide them with the support they need to have a good nights rest. Today there are two basic types of beds that are prevalent in the Western world. Box spring beds and slat beds.
For some people the differences may not even be worth thinking about, but there are differences between the two that make some people choose the one over the other.
Most traditional beds these days are box spring beds and not slat beds. This means that the frame of the bed has a box with supportive springs inside it. The mattress is places on top of this frame. This gives the bed the springy feel that they tend to have. While these beds are the most prevalent these days, they are not the only ones.
