How To Lower Your Bed

<h3>Lower Your Bed</h3>

There are a few reasons you may want to lower your bed. The two populations that need low beds most often are small children and the elderly. Lower beds are easier to get into and they help eliminate the risk of a bad fall. At The Sleep Shop have several options for lowering your bed. We have low profile bed low profile rails and bed frames. If you have a headboard and a footboard, you may choose a set of low profile bed rails. If you only have a headboard, you may to want to lower your bed using a low profile bed frame.

We have heavy duty options like the Monster KB2007-LP that is 4.5″ off the floor. Playfully called “the monster” by its creators because of its scary strength, the Monster Low Profile bed frame has 2″ side rails, and steel stem glides, and it is capable of holding up to 2000 lbs!

With today’s extra thick bedding, you might feel you need a stepladder to get in bed. Normal bed frames sit about 7 – 8 inches off the floor, while low profile bed frames are 4.25 – 5 inches off the floor. Low profile bed frames are designed to lower your bed and fully support your mattress and box spring without the use of a headboard or a footboard.


Some of our customers keep their too-high decorative, wood headboard and footboard in place. My customers remove their center supports, and they use one of our low profile bed frames like the LB34 or LB44 down inside the “box” that’s left. Then they can lower their bed, while still maintaining the attractive appearance of the wood bed.
