What happens if you use mismatched mattress/box spring?

Use one mattress and matching box spring only.
Skip the box spring, it doesn't really matter.
Use the box spring and both mattresses!

I picked up a mattress and box spring today. Does it matter if I mismatch the mattresses and box springs? Does the box spring really matter that much?

    I'm not sure what you are asking, but if I am on the right track, I will say you can use any boxspring with any mattress as long as they are the same size, or as long as the boxspring is bigger than the mattress

    Well, if it's a water bed mattress on a box spring, the bed would likely wet you, before you could wet the bed.

    Practical, yet uncomfortable. *grin* I HAD a futon, but I gave it away. I think the mattress to it was past it's expiration date.

    I DO have a 7' couch. (When given the choice "Do you think we should get the 5' couch, or the 7' couch?" Well, duh! lol)

    That's what I thought... but although I understand a lot of things, they don't fully explain the science of how the two parts work together very well. It's damn elfin magic for all I know! *grin*

    I did last night! Unfortunately I was over tired, and don't remember how well I slept. I might have to experiment all weekend long. After all, it's for science! *grin*
