When deciding on a bed, how high should it be?

Let's grab a tape measure and figure out the ideal height for your bed. The difference between a good night's sleep and a restless one can be as little as an inch.

  • Get a measuring tape and find the distance in centimeters between your knee and the floor.

  • Reduce your bed's height by an inch and add that to your bedding.

  • As a result, your bed can finally be at the ideal height!

You can roughly calculate how many inches to add to your bed frame if you know that the average person needs a bed height of about 25 inches. Beds that are higher off the ground make it easier to get in and out of them, which is especially helpful for people who suffer from chronic pain.

However, if you are a senior or a person with a physical disability, there is an exception to this rule. Beds that are 25 inches high may prevent a person from transferring from a wheelchair to a bed without assistance. A bed should be between and for a senior, someone with a spinal injury, or someone with a physical disability. 20 and 23-inchesinches 20 and 23

To What End Would Raising the Bed Height

For what reason would you want a loftier bed? Putting in a higher bed can help in a number of ways.

  • Simple access for getting in and out of bed, even if you have a high bed.

  • By making some room in the closet, we can store more

  • Aesthetics

Comfortable Mobility

A taller bed makes perfect sense if you are a tall person. A good position is on the side of the bed, with your feet flat on the floor. And you need to be able to get out of bed rapidly or get into bed without stumbling over bed risers or caster wheels so you can get some shut-eye.

The Need for a Place to Put Things

A taller bed allows for more space under it, which can be useful if your bedroom is cramped or you don't have access to a lot of closet or drawer space. That extra room is perfect for storing seasonal clothing, gift wrap, and any other items that would normally be kept in a closet.


A higher bed may look particularly at home in a bedroom with a high or vaulted ceiling. In a similar vein, many antique bed frames are elevated from the floor.

Mattresses by Leesa are where it's at.

Whether you're in the market for a brand new bed, setting up a guest room, or just need a way to prop up your current one, here are a few creative solutions. Leesa covers your bases As well as our award-winning mattresses, the best mattress topper ever, linens, mattress protectors, pillows, and unique cushions, we also sell bed frames, platform beds, adjustable bed frames, and simple foundations. Leesa will improve the look of your bedroom and the quality of your sleep.


Is there any way to improve the aesthetics of bed risers?

It all comes down to personal preference and bedroom layout. Putting on a bed skirt is a quick and easy way to disguise bed risers. This is also an excellent option for hiding an ordinary bed frame. Colorful plastic stepstools are an option if your bedroom is decorated with bright hues. Bed risers made of wood can be stained to match the legs of a bed with wooden feet or the hardwood or laminate flooring in your bedroom.

What other options do you have besides bed risers?

Mattress foundations on Leesa bedframes, plywood platforms, memory foam mattress toppers, screw-on wheels, and even adjustable bed frames are all options for those who need to elevate their mattresses.

Without a box spring, how can you raise your mattress?

The answer lies in how much loftier you want to make your bed. If you only need to raise the mattress height by 1.5 inches, a box spring is unnecessary for a platform bed. The solution is a Leesa mattress topper.

The reason why Japanese beds are so low

They have done so culturally for centuries, but the main reason Japanese people sleep on a thick futon mattress on top of a tatami mat and rush grass is because it is more comfortable. They say it's better for your back, but earthquakes are common in Japan because the country sits on four tectonic plates. A bed with a low profile is safer during an earthquake.

Can a mattress be placed directly on the floor?

Leesa suggests placing a mattress on a solid base, such as slats or a box spring. Comfort is maintained for longer and water damage is prevented by allowing air to circulate freely under and around the mattress. Use a mattress base to protect both your mattress and your spine.

Is there a way to make a platform bed higher?

Bed risers designed for this model are available for purchase if you need to make your bed higher.
