Innerspring mattresses combine the best of both worlds when it comes to mattresses. They provide the springs that at one time would have been separate with comfortable padding to create a positive sleep experience. This makes it easier to install a bed, to make it up and to clean under and around the mattress. It usually also makes for a great sleeping experience. Innerspring mattresses can be placed on a bed platform without any additional springs, creating a lower profile for the bed height. This creates greater ease for making up the bed and perhaps for getting in and out of it.
