Tuning and calibrating your squeaky bed

My bed frame is really squeaky - it chirps with my slightest move. And now it has a new thing - every once in a while, when I lie perfectly still, it squeaks in time with my heartbeat. I'm not kidding - I checked my own pulse to make sure it wasn't something else. This is amazing. How might I tune my bed - or make a whole new piece of furniture - that would do this deliberately and reliably? [more inside]

Box spring or wood slats?

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?

Personally I LOVE a squeaky bedframe. Helps with pacing. My girlfriend? Not so much.

I need to buy a non squeaky bed for under 500 bucks. Any suggestions? [more inside]

What do I need for a bed?

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.

Modify twin bedframe into full/double?

How can I cheaply turn a twin bed frame, box spring and mattress into a full/double frame? (The current frame and mattress can't be disassembled or moved to a different room, so I need to expand/modify the twin frame + box spring so it supports a double mattress, then just store the twin mattress underneath it on the floor and bring in a double mattress for the top.)

Do you like your Dalselv bedframe from Ikea?

Do you like your Dalselv bedframe from Ikea? Does it wobble or is it very stable? Did you finish/paint it, or did you leave it bare?
