What is a Low Profile Box Spring?

Same Support, Shorter Height

A low profile box spring (also known as a low profile foundation) serves the same purpose as a normal box spring but has been slimmed down to compensate for the increasing heights of modern mattresses. Newer mattresses are likely to be 4-6 inches (or even more) taller than the traditional two-sided mattress. When used with a traditional box spring, they can be much higher than the standard height of beds a few decades ago.

Many dislike the increase in height for a variety of reasons. Maybe it makes your bed much higher than your nightstand, or you simply don’t like the aesthetic. The added height can make it difficult to get into bed for some people. The low-profile box spring is designed to solve this problem, and is about half the height of standard-profile box springs You should get a low-profile box spring if you want a lower overall bed height, as you won't have to worry about compromising the support.

Many manufacturers produce low profile box springs. Standard box springs measure 9 inches in height and low profile box springs measure between 5 and 5.5 inches The difference in height has no effect on the amount of support they provide to the mattress and both work with most mattresses and beds.
