When you’re buying a new mattress, think twice whether you really need the matching box spring or foundation support to go with it. Modern-day bed designs -- or platform-style beds -- provide the support your mattress needs for even wear. If your bed design uses wood slats and requires a box spring, you can use your existing box spring with your new mattress. While store associates may say this voids your warranty, bedding manufacturers will honor your warranty if something goes wrong. Be sure to ask for a discount on your purchase if you’re buying just a mattress.
