Working together, the mattress and the box spring make up a bed. The box springs reduce wear to your mattress and absorb shock. They create a flat structure for your mattress to lie upon and are the perfect choice for people who want to raise their mattress’s height.
Since our mission is to help you find the best products on the market, we created a list of box springs that will help you make the bed of your dreams. They are all reliable and sturdy but still have different characteristics, so make sure you read each review carefully!
This is a 9-inch high-profile queen-size box spring that will offer an excellent foundation to any mattress. Still, if you want a low-profile spring box, you can opt for the 4-inch model that we know will be just as good.
This box spring is a combination of wood and steel. The foundation is made of thick, durable steel, whereas the slats are made of wood. This combination creates a sturdy base that can withstand pretty much everything. The slats are closely spaced (2.5-2.9 inches apart) and can support a maximum capacity of 500 lbs.
A great addition to the design that we personally loved is the foam-padded tape added to the steel frame. It not only prevents your mattress from moving but also eliminates any noise that may be caused by your constant moving while sleeping. This suggestion is not as heavy as most box springs in this category. It weighs 50.73lb and measures 79″ X 59.5″ X 9″, 50.73 lb.
If you’re one of those people who hate spending time with bolts and nuts, you will surely love this box spring (Queen). It features a Quick Snap assembly system, which means you have to secure the steel slats by applying pressure and not screws. Doesn’t that sound great? You will save yourself some time and still get outstanding stability.
This type of box spring can support all spring, latex, or memory foam mattresses, you just have to choose the right size, and you’re ready. We tried the queen box spring size, but we are positive that all of them are great, so don’t overthink it!
Keep in mind that you also need a basic metal bed frame or platform to support this Zinus Victor bed spring. The good thing is that the manufacturer offers an option that includes a high-quality bed frame, so if you don’t have one already, you can buy one together.
The slats of this box spring are closely spaced, whereas the steel frame itself is made of a durable steel frame that can support up to 700 lbs. Another great thing about this product is the fact that it is backed by a 5-year warranty, so, even though we bet you won’t have to use it, you can sleep confidently and be sure that if something happens, the manufacturer will always help you solve the problem.
Another offer by Zinus is meant for all those who don’t like using tools and spend hours assembling furniture. This bifold box spring is one of our favorites in terms of design. It offers the functionality and looks of a traditional box spring, but it features a smart design that does not require tedious assembly.
This Zinus Jayanna box spring uses heavy-gauge steel that adds premium strength to the overall design. The steel frame has a Poly Jacquard cover and is stable, strong, and sturdy. This was one of the best queen box springs we tried, and it is ideal for shorter mattresses or for people who want their beds to be higher.
This high-profile box spring can support up to 500 lbs (a bit lower than our previous suggestion). Its slats are spaced 2.8 inches apart and are very durable. We also loved how thoroughly packaged it came, since we believe that is very important (products can often get damaged while being delivered if not packaged properly.) Keep in mind that the box spring does not come with a bed frame!
We continue with the Zinus saga because this next model is just as great as the previous ones we reviewed, and we just had to include it in our list. When it comes to queen-size box springs, this product is one of the most affordable. Still, it is a lot more durable than the cheap box springs we get to see every day since it is made of solid steel that is also backed by a 5-year warranty.
This 9-inch-high bestseller from Armita is perfect for anyone who prefers their mattresses to be raised off the ground. It arrives well-packaged and requires little setup.
The components were all contained in a small package, and you also received clear directions on how to set up your box spring as quickly as possible.
The device can support up to 500 pounds and has slats that are 7 inches apart. You won’t have a problem with that either because this simple to build box spring works with all common bed frames. The box springs for beds should, in our opinion, be smooth, level, and sturdy, and this particular model meets all three criteria.
This Zinus Keenan box frame is probably our favorite because it has one of the smartest designs we have ever seen. You can forget all about that standard box spring that requires a bed frame because this affordable piece features durable legs in the center, corners, and sides of the foundation. Yes, that’s right! For this price, you get all in one!
The clever foundation of this product feature is not everything, though! As an added bonus, you get brackets that will allow you to attach your own headboard. That means you can personalize your bed to fit the décor in your room. How cool is that!
Another advantage this box spring offers is convenient and compact packaging. All the tools and parts needed for the assembly are included in the package, so you won’t have to worry about that. So which sizes do you get to choose from with this spring box? Full size, twin, queen, king, Zinus offer it all!
If you’re looking for a box spring for a full-size mattress, this Zinus Edgar easy-to-assemble box spring is a perfect choice. We tried both the Queen size and the Full size, and we were equally impressed.
This model has a solid wood frame that is just as durable as any other metal frame. It is suitable for latex and foam mattresses and, together with the thick wood slats, can withstand up to 500 lbs.
If you don’t want a low-profile box spring, queen size, or not, and you prefer a box spring that is higher than 4 inches, you will love the high-profile design of this model. The slats are spaced 2.8-3.4 inches apart and offer excellent support. The unit has an easy assembly, and all the tools you’ll need are included in the package (just like they were with our previous suggestions.)
This box spring’s solid wood structure has a Poly Jacquard Cover, which makes it look super modern. Just like most other high-profile and low-profile box springs, this one does not come with a bed frame, and you will have to buy it separately. Still, the unit comes with a 5-year warranty, so it is definitely worth the investment.
Our final suggestion is a split box spring that is 8 inches high. It is manufactured with the highest standards in quality, comfort, durability, and beauty, and surprise surprise- its brand is Spinal Solution. Part of their sensation collection, this box spring is not only extremely comfortable but also very sturdy (it meets federal standards 1633 and 1632.)
This is a wooden box spring that is the perfect choice for all low-profile mattresses. It has a strong, traditional wood structure, but since it is made of dense lumber, there’s no chance of cracking. The unit comes split into two narrow hallways and is very compact.
We loved the fact that it is fully assembled, unlike most box springs. You won’t have to spend time reading instructions and learning how to use the tools required. You get to choose between Queen and Twin XL, and if you don’t have the perfect mattress yet, you can check the mattresses offered by the manufacturer as they are just as good as their bed box springs.
There are many things you need to consider when it comes to boxing springs. Queen? Low profile? What is it that you want? Luckily for you, our list includes the best suggestions out there, and we are sure you will find the perfect one for you! There are some things you should never compromise on, and your bed and mattress definitely enter this category!
