The height of your bed from the floor is another major factor that
should be taken into account. The NBPA suggests that you should ask yourself two questions, both about your present bed and when considering buying a new one:
Can you get off and on the bed easily?
If your bed is too low but otherwise perfectly okay, there’s no need to buy a new one as you usually can make it higher either by buying special extensions for its legs or, if it has legs that screw in, replacing these with longer ones. However, be sure that whatever you do will be solid enough to take the weight safely. For example, just placing a bed’s four legs on blocks of wood could mean that one of the legs may slip off eventually, perhaps making the bed suddenly tilt sharply while you’re asleep.
A bed that’s too high can be lowered by sawing its feet. Do be absolutely sure, however, that the resulting height will be the right one for you as cutting an inch or two off the legs is one thing, gluing the pieces back, quite another!
