Also, which side of the box spring goes down?
All box springs will have a side that is more finished than the other. The finished side is often softer or smoother and that is your top. Another way to tell is the top side will be more solid and flat, and the bottom will be more open.
Similarly, should you rotate your box spring? If a mattress requires a box spring, it is recommended that people rotate it every 6 months to help with wear.
Besides, which side of the mattress goes up?
The design varies by manufacturer; some feature a thin memory foam layer stitched atop other materials, while others look the same on top and bottom. If unsure, press your hand into the foam; the side that conforms to the shape the most, and slowly, is the top.
Does it matter what box spring you use?
Unless your bed frame still uses slats for support, you do not need a box spring, according to Orders. Box springs were first invented to help absorb shock since mattresses themselves were so much thinner back then. Nowadays, all box springs really do is just raise the profile of your bed.
