I am looking for a guest bedroom mattress is used 1 - 2 months out of the year.
I really want it to be nice and comfortable. Not too hard or soft.
I do like the old fashioned coil mattresses with a box spring.
I think mattresses that sit on a platform are harder.
The guest bed I have requires a box spring, it does not have a platform with slats.
I am also open to a cheaper mattress with a nice latex topper to balance out the firmness.
The Wolf Brolynn Old Fashioned Two Sided Mattress in Plush is an ideal choice.
It has the feel you describe, offering firm support with a comfortable sleeping surface that is not too soft.
Pure Latex toppers are expensive, so going that route will cost more.
There are no more old fashioned box springs, for the most part.
The few still being made are quite pricey.
Today’s box springs are known as a “limited deflection” box springs, which uses steel vertical struts and a wire grid that holds it all together.
It has no flex, like an old coiled box spring would have had.
This type of box spring is available at most mattress stores, but Costco has the best price…by far.
Unfortunately, they won’t deliver those. You have to go to their store to pickup.
Delivering a fully made box spring carries a heavy shipping price…costing more than it’s worth.
We carry a slatted foundation the arrives KD (Knocked-Down).
It’s easy to assemble and no tools are required.
It’s a bit dressy…upholstered in your choice of black, gray or brown.
It’s available in two heights…8” or 5”
Here is a link showing those.
The mattress and foundation ship via UPS.
Shipping is free.
