One of the most frequently asked questions about the BedBunker pertains to the issue of sleep comfort. When deployed correctly, the BedBunker takes the place of the box spring beneath the mattress, supporting you as you sleep and hiding your firearms and valuables directly beneath you. How does this impact sleeping comfort?

The answer is not at all. Contrary to what many believe, modern box springs contain no actual springs; their original role of aiding the actual support of your mattress was phased out decades ago, and today the box spring essentially serves as a raised platform on which a mattress may be placed. Box springs serve no purpose other than to elevate your mattress to a comfortable sitting level, a job easily taken over by the BedBunker. Put your mattress on the floor and see if you notice any discernible change in comfort; you probably won’t.

If you do feel uncomfortable sleeping on top of the BedBunker, it may be time to buy a new mattress anyway; experts suggest spring mattress replacement at least every five to eight years. We suggest a memory foam mattress, as they are phenomenal for spinal support and designed to be placed directly on hard surfaces.
