Can you change the height of a steel bed frame somehow?
Mar. 14, 2023


It may be possible to adjust the height of a steel bed frame, depending on the design and construction of the frame. Some steel bed frames have adjustable legs or feet that can be screwed in or out to change the height of the frame. (There are some steel frames that have threaded legs but those threads are there to adjust for an uneven floor)

If your bed frame does not have adjustable legs or feet, you may be able to modify it by using risers or bed frame extensions. These are commonly available at home goods stores and can be placed under the legs of the bed frame to increase the overall height. (This is the best way to create space underneath your bed but typically they only work safely with wheeled roller frames not the much more currently common glided bed frames available today)

It's important to note that modifying a bed frame may affect its stability and safety, so it's essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions and use caution when making any adjustments. If you're unsure about how to modify your bed frame safely, it's best to consult with a professional or the manufacturer before attempting any modifications. (All true. Another issue with raising the height of your steel bed frame is that it will raise the height of your headboard which may look not look aesthetically pleasing)
