Lose the box spring and save space.
Ever wonder why we have box springs? They serve some purpose, but for the most part they are huge, inflexible and a big pain when it comes to moving. Ikea did away with box springs years ago and have replaced them with a simple system of connected wood slats. Known as LURÖY slated bed base in IKEA terms. They cost about $50, depending on what size you need.
Here’s a quick tip for anyone that live in a college town or urban area, where Ikea is king when it comes to furniture. On move out dates, get on craigslist for free furniture. There will most likely be someone getting rid of their Ikea bed system. So, replace your bulky box spring for this wooden slat system. It works great with inexpensive bed frame systems. Your new bedding system will be half the size it was with that antique box spring, and the performance will be the same.
