I have had a bedroom set for over 10 years and it is very nice,
however the bed is high off the ground. It takes a 2 step (original
furniture that came with the set) to get into the bed. It was ok
while I was young, but now that I am getting older I don't want to
climb into bed and would probably break a limb if I accidently fell
out. Anyway, any suggestions on how the bed could be lowered, without
damaging the furniture or should I put the box springs on the floor?
I like the furniture and we not want to sell. Thanks
Picture might help. You might be able to lower whatever holds the box
spring on the inside of the
frame. Depending on the type of frame, there are sometimes hooks on the
side panel of the
frame that hook onto a series of hangers on the foot- and head-board.
True, Norminn, but these are a matched male/ female set with no allowance
for height adjustment. I initially thought of how a crib set performs this
function but there isn't anything out there like that, but I did find this.

*will* have to drill new holes in your corner posts to mount them lower it
could be the least damaging option out there. If you have a Rockler store
nearby you may be able to see them but don't count on that. You had better
call first and see if they have that particular catalog number on hand.
Here's another item from another company.
Then get a thicker mattress when you ditch the box springs. I don't think
I've EVER had a bed with box springs, except maybe when staying in a hotel.
It's also a good idea to turn or rotate the mattress every year or so.
