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 looking for a minimalist/possibly nontraditional bed frame that won't throw off the zen of my bedroom. What options do I have? [more inside]
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.

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? Does it wobble or is it very stable? Did you finish/paint it, or did you leave it bare?
