What’s the easiest way to have your mattress a preferred height off the floor?
Aug. 19, 2023

The easiest way to achieve your preferred mattress height off the floor is by using a mattress foundation or a box spring. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Mattress Foundation/Box Spring: These are specially designed platforms or boxes that go underneath your mattress. They provide support and can add some height to your mattress. You can find various heights and styles to suit your preference. (True)

  2. Bed Frame: A bed frame with adjustable legs or height settings can also help elevate your mattress. Many modern bed frames allow you to customize the height according to your needs. ( I've never seen customizable steel bed frames in the thirty years I've been in the business, but there are companies tagging make low rise bed frames)

  3. Bed Risers: Bed risers are small platforms that can be placed under the legs of your bed frame. They come in various heights and materials. This is a quick and budget-friendly solution. ( stability is an issue but they can work)

  4. DIY Platform: If you're a bit handy, you can create your own platform using plywood and additional support to raise your mattress to the desired height. Make sure it's sturdy and even. (True but few people are qualified)

  5. Adjustable Bed Base: These bases allow you to adjust the height of various parts of your mattress, such as the head or foot, according to your comfort. They are usually motorized and offer a range of height options. (This is not what was being asked at all)

  6. Stacking Items: If you're looking for a temporary solution, you can stack sturdy items like storage containers or wooden crates under your bed legs to raise it temporarily. (Truly bad idea)

  7. Thicker Mattress: You can also consider purchasing a thicker mattress to increase the overall height. Keep in mind that this might affect your sleeping experience and comfort, so make sure to choose a mattress that suits your preferences. ( Many customers come into the store looking for a mattress of a certain thickness. It's not a goodidea to choose your next mattress based on it's thickness alone)

Remember that while raising your mattress can enhance the aesthetics of your bedroom, it's also essential to consider your comfort, safety, and the overall stability of the setup. Make sure whatever solution you choose provides proper support for your mattress and doesn't compromise your sleep quality.
