Memory Foam Mattress: In Today’s Tough Economy, Save by Using Your Existing Foundation

For the last 10 – 15 years or so, most mattresses have been sold with what is now called a foundation. This is the part of the mattress set that used to be called “box springs,” based on its construction.

A contemporary foundation is basically a rigid platform that your mattress sits on top of. In many cases, your current foundation can be used with your new memory foam mattress. This is a great way to save money when buying a memory foam mattress in today’s tough economy.

To see if you can use your existing foundation with your new memory foam mattress, you just need to do some very simple detective work. This is not “CSI” kind of detective work – In fact; this may be just about the easiest thing you have ever checked on. Here’s all you do –

To test your foundation, remove the mattress and simply press it in a few places. As long as it remains firm and there are no dips or excessive wear, it should work just fine with a quality memory foam mattress.

There! It’s that easy! Save by using your existing foundation with your new memory foam mattress. Don’t you wish every product made saving money this easy?
