How important is a box spring?

Coil Box Springs, the best for your sleep and mattress.

Why it is important to have a real box spring, the benefits from the consumer standpoint.  For one, box springs provide an additional comfort aspect to the sleeping experience.  They provide flexibility and resiliency.  In addition, it creates a positive environment for your mattress where as your mattress will now have shock absorption.  Shock absorption will slow down the compression aspect of the mattress which will allow for a longer lifespan of the mattress.

Today, most retail shops sell foundations as opposed to Box Springs.  A foundation is a wooden box that contains no coil springs however, its a big secret to the consumer.  Most people are unaware of the lack of steal coils within there “box”.  Even the terminology has changed.  The name went from “Box Spring” to “Box”.  Has anyone noticed?

There are several benefits to the manufacturers for not providing real box springs.  The first one is that wood and cardboard are much less expensive to product.  Steal prices have risen dramatically over the past several decades which influenced the reduction in box springs.  In addition, wear on your mattress.  Wooden platforms as well as wooden foundations tend to wear your mattress quickly due to the fact the innerspring unit or foam, is compressed more by residing on a flat surface.

And that folks is why a box spring is important.

Horse Hair Mattress can provide the best nights sleep for anyone.

Until now, choosing a mattress was based on guesswork. Typical actions were done by visiting a showroom and lying down on a few sample beds for a few minutes taking a quick sleep while trying to choose a mattress. No matter how carefully you choose, there was always the possibility that six months later your aching back and neck would tell you that you made a mistake. Not anymore.

The answer is a Luxurious Horse Hair Mattress. Horse hair mattresses are the highest quality mattresses manufactured today. These mattresses are considered one of the best beds on the market. Horse hair mattresses can last for years and years. Orange Mattress – Custom Bedding mattresses are all handcrafted by a highly skilled craftsman. Average mattresses need to be replaced after 5-10 years for various reasons. They may get filled with mites and other unpleasant elements which can accumulate. Horse hair mattresses are one of the only types of mattresses that never decay and they actually repel mites. They are completely hypoallergenic. Horse hair is even healthy as a pillow.

Horse hair is one of the few natural materials that is comfortable to sleep on and doesn’t absorb any water. When you have enough curled horse hair in a pile with springs and surrounded by breathable fabric, it creates a springy cloud that allows air and moisture to move right through it. It allows you to sleep continuously without being disturbed by your body’s normal temperature changes and perspiration. Most people perspire an amount equal to a few glasses of water every night. A horse hair mattress will wick the moisture away from the bed, whereas a typical foam bed or foam/spring combination will absorb it like a sponge.

As far as comfort goes, it is totally different experience from your typical quilted foam spring mattress. It is sturdy while having loft and resilience. While it can be the best mattress, we encourage trying out each mattress in order to decide which variety is best for each individual experience. Custom Bedding even makes horse hair toppers.

Orange Mattress – Custom Bedding has been producing handcrafted Horse hair mattresses for over 100 years. Some of our equipment is even the same from our forefathers.
