We just got a nice new mattress. It came with a box spring. We were using our old mattress on an IKEA bed (the Redalen, which I guess they don't sell anymore) with their cheap wooden slats, the Sultan Lade
, as support. All things being equal, we'd stick with the IKEA bed and slats. But are all things equal? Are there advantages to using the box spring instead of the slats?

I'm furnishing my apartment on a truly shoestring budget, and need to buy a bed for the first time.
I know nothing
about buying beds besides the concepts of frames, mattress and boxsprings (well, that and buying new to avoid bedbugs).
What kinds of factors should I be considering? Where and how should I be buying my bed? What's a reasonable price? Please educate me! This is in the U.S.A. [more inside]

My wife and I stayed overnight at a hotel a few weekends ago and came to the realization that our bed is truly horrific.

I'm buying a bed for the first time and just got the mattress. Should I get a boxspring and bed frame, or just a bed frame or platform bed (same as bed frame?)? I was considering this ikea frame
so it looks easy to disassemble when I move.

What is pushing bedroom design from tall beds, box springs and mattress, to the 4 inches off the floor platform beds? Is it cost, maybe style that moves from space conscious Tokyo/New York, or an architect's fad? Something else?
