Q: I want to replace my bed frame, which is currently one of those collapsible metal frames that requires a box spring. I am in need of a new mattress, and want to forego the box spring altogether -- I like the lower platform style beds, and getting a box spring into an apartment is always awkward. I'm willing to spend a bit of money on the frame, which will need to have slats to replace the box spring, but am wondering where to start. What should I look for in terms of making sure I'm getting a quality piece?Sent by Jess
