When it comes to a serene sleep, a bed frame or a box spring beds are necessary to achieve this. If for any reason you feel discomfort whilst sleeping. Your best answer will be to invest in a new bed base or frame. Bed bases are cheaper, whereas bed-frames are affordable. Both of these can enhance your bed’s comfort level. Buying a combo is less expensive than buying both items separately.

Tender Sleep Furniture offers a considerable range of platform bed collections. The key indicator to define a platform bed is that it has space underneath it. This will give you access for you to place your slippers and other small stuff.

This information will help you distinguish between the various bed types in the market today.

Platform Beds

A platform bed is a special kind of bed base. The frame comes in either slats or solid surfaces depending on the design. Platform beds are usually low profile and their access is fairly easy. Unlike any other bed base, a platform bed can house your mattress without any issues. Keep in mind that the mattress you are using should be of the same size as the bed.

The best way to measure the overall support of a platform bed can be seen in its construction. Solid surfaces are prone to providing firmer support to you and your mattress. If you like sleeping on a hard mattress, then this is the best candidate for the job. Almost all platform beds that Tender Sleep Furniture offers come with wooden slats. Choosing a pocket sprung mattress for this bed type will make the transition much better.


Durability wise, platform beds tend to last for decades. The real reason why your platform bed is durable depends on what kind of material it comes with. The Tender Sleep Furniture frame is made of solid hardwood. The material in question is of high regard. A hybrid of wood and metal is also a good choice for a comfortable bed. It would be wise to avoid a platform bed with flimsy wooden material. This can lead to injury or a weaker bed frame.

Box Spring Bases

A box spring base is two bases that combine to form a single base. The most common example of this kind is the divan beds. The sole reason this is done is for mobility, as two bases are easy to carry and bring to your location. Moreover, these bases also have the option to add drawers at the behest of the customer’s desire. Other than that, the bases are interlocked using q-clips. Q clips are a new kind of component that keep the two bases intact and at the same time keep the strength intact.

Normally, a box spring beds are of solid wood that combines with a network of coils. These coils are of steel. This helps mitigate pressure build-up in the base without any issues. Tender Sleep Furniture offers these kinds of bases in droves for affordable pricing.

Stainless steel is generally flexible and in time with use provides the necessary support. The bases can absorb shock and can withstand your body weight.

In reality, spring bases are the perfect answer for you and your guest room, if you have one. With time and use, the coils that have provided you with the necessary comfort eventually wear down. And with time, each coil offers less support. The first sign is the noise will start to come from your base. Normally, you would use the usual tips to lessen it. But if it still comes, then it is high time to invest in something else. Your investment has finally run its course.
