What is an upholstered bed?

What is a boxspring bed?
A RUF boxspring bed consists of a box with slats at the bottom. The springs rest on these. Each of the springs is fitted into its own tiny sack, permitting noiseless adjustment to any change in load. A mattress sits atop this box. This combination is known as a boxspring bed. Here as well, the design options are practically limitless. Depending entirely on your taste and sense of style, spatial conditions and your need for comfort, adjustability and design, you can configure your own unique BettenRUF boxspring bed Betten
Are there differences among boxspring beds?
Yes. This is why RUF boxspring beds are as unique as those who sleep on them. Boxspring concepts such as our QLX are patented. This adds a cushioning level between the boxspring and the mattress. It eliminates all undulation. Or our boxspring beds, featuring an especially slim box filled with mini-springs. This results in an elegant and extremely light look. The harmonious visual appearance of our boxspring beds is quite unusual. What you see is not the usual two boxes for a boxspring double bed but instead a continuous edge around the boxspring within. You can also decide whether you wish to have an extra comfort level for a restful night’s sleep, a fabric-covered mattress, bed base, or … the list of choices goes on and on. Welcome to the world of virtually unlimited possibilities. Betten
What is important to look for in boxspring beds?
Here the crucial factor is quality. Original boxspring beds are certified by DGM, the German Furniture Community. All RUF boxspring beds are tested and certified by DGM as fully compliant with its quality standards. They carry the seal you can trust: “Original DGM Boxspring”. Betten
But the details also matter and are frequently just as important when looking for sleeping and resting comfort. It is absolutely crucial that the boxspring mattress grip the base. This is why RUF beds feature a hook-and-loop adhesive strip and anti-slip nubs on the upper side of the boxspring. Adhesive stretch velour on the underside of the boxspring mattress completes the picture. This also ensures firm support when combined with electric adjustment – and entirely without ugly retaining brackets. And what is more: the AIRVent ventilation system in all our boxspring beds creates constant air circulation and produces an ideal micro-climate. Betten
What is the difference between a boxspring bed and an upholstered bed?
The construction – or more precisely, the base: the boxspring bed consists of a box with springs instead of a spring wood frame (slatted frame). The spring wood frame is found in the upholstered bed option, however. The mattress of your choice can rest on the box or the slatted frame. A boxspring bed with fabric-covered mattress is always crowned with a mattress pad – or you can choose a traditional ticking-covered mattress. A mattress pad can also be used on an upholstered bed. This adds an extra degree of snuggly comfort.
Which is better: a boxspring bed or an upholstered bed?
It is really a question of taste. Whether the base has a completely different structure depends entirely on personal preference. With RUF upholstered beds, there is no difference between selecting a boxspring bed or an upholstered bed. Both our comfort varieties can meet all needs. No matter which bed type you select, your requirements will be met – spacious bed base, electric adjustment, a variety of headboard variants, fabrics and styles. Even the height of the base can be selected. With either a boxspring bed or an upholstered bed, you determine whether you wish to conveniently hoover or wipe beneath the bed, whether you want a bed that lies flush to the floor, and whether you prefer an elegant and light design or a more lavish appearance. We are sure you will find the best option for you. Both concepts offer optimal sleeping enjoyment so you awake with the energy you need to tackle the demands of your day. Betten
What is electric adjustment?
Many RUF upholstered and boxspring beds can be equipped with an electrically adjustable base. This means that both the head and foot of the bed can be adjusted at the touch of a button to your favourite individual (and current) settings. These settings can be adjusted on the bed with either a cable switch or wirelessly for greater freedom of movement or even more comfortably with your mobile phone. Betten
What are the advantages of electric adjustment?
This extra comfort is tremendously relaxing because your body assumes its favourite position simply and without active movement. In this way, your relaxation is uninterrupted as you move smoothly and almost soundlessly into a lying, sitting or feet-elevated position. Foot elevation, by the way, is something you should engage in regularly since raising the foot of the bed relieves the circulation system and facilitates the return of blood to the heart. Unburdened and invigorated after a long and tiring day at work. And even more: enjoying breakfast, reading, watching television, chatting …
