Mattresses -- I need more info

Monday, March 31, 2014

I've been checking on a mattress for our King-sized bed in the house being built. I remember it's been a long time since I bought the one on our bed here in the Phx area and at that time there were two box springs, sort of twin-sized each, then the mattress was one huge piece.

Now I see they have these super-thick mattresses, up to 14-inches thick, and they do not come with a box spring. Do they just sit on your bed frame? Do you have to buy the box spring separately? Seems odd, why don't they come with something to put them on?

So if any of you have experience with getting a new mattress/box spring lately let me know what you know. If the new foam ones are the way to go, I'd like to be up-to-date but if you need to buy something extra for them to set on, I need to know that too.
