Standard Box Spring height: 8.5″ · Low Profile Box Spring height: 4.5″ · Bunkie Board height: 2″
Which Option is Right for Your Sleep?
Over the years, mattresses heights have increased. This often leads to a sleep surface which is too high for some sleepers to get in and out of bed comfortably. A low profile box spring or bunkie board can make a world of difference to those who have trouble managing today’s rising mattress heights.
Each box spring size and bunkie board foundation provides the same amount of support for your mattress. The only difference is the height.
Things to consider:
Your Mattress and Bed Height: Most modern mattresses vary in height from 6 inches to 17 inches. Make sure you add the height of the bed, mattress, and box spring options to help determine which box spring height is right for you.
Appearance: Many beds are made to sit lower to the ground, and a standard box spring can take away from the aesthetic of a low profile bed. Low profile box springs are beneficial for those who like the look of a low profile bed.
Your Height: Finding the optimal height of your sleep surface can make it easier for you to get in and out of bed. Taller individuals may prefer a higher sleep surface, while shorter individuals may want to consider a low profile box spring.
