Question: I have a queen size mattress that sits too high, while it looks pretty cool it is hard to get in and out of. Would you have any suggestions on the best ways to lower my queen size mattress? I haven’t bought a mattress in many years and didn’t realize the problems I was going to run into. My old sheets are too thin and don’t fit, the mattress is blocking out my headboard, and it sits high enough I could hurt myself if I were to fall out.
Answer: The idea is to have the surface of the bed sitting a reasonable height. The tallness not only makes transitioning in and out harder but it can affect the visual aesthetics of how the headboard looks. Taller mattresses dressed with pillows and bedding may partially or completely block a beautiful piece of furnishing and after all, you probably spent money on the headboard and you want to see it right?

Low profile box spring and low profile foundations are other options. They replace 8 to 9-inch tall support bases with 4 to 5-inch tall support base systems. If you are purchasing a brand new mattress set and it looks to be thicker consider this option instead of replacing the steel bed frame.
When these foundations/boxsprings are used in combination with a low boy or low profile bed frame they can significantly reduce the overall bed elevation by nearly 9 inches. This arrangement of using a lower base and lower frame offers an overall maximum height reduction.
