A quality foundation will help you get maximum support and value from your mattress. The PlushBeds Low Profile Orthopedic Foundation provides the same great support that has made the regular PlushBeds Orthopedic Foundation a customer favorite, but offers a slightly lower height for those who like a more minimal look or who are pairing their mattress with a high bed frame. The Low Profile foundation will work with any PlushBeds mattress, but at a height 3" lower than the regular Orthopedic Foundation, the Low Profile Foundation is a great option for those who prefer a lower bed.

The PlushBeds Low Profile Foundation is made of sturdy, sustainable spruce wood that has been heat-treated rather than chemically treated, and is covered with beautiful organic cotton fabric. Pair it with your choice of any PlushBeds mattress and you have the perfect combination for a great night's sleep.

Does what is designed for. quick delivery, well wrapped package. I recommend this base to everyone who prefers lower beds or simply are shorter.

Absolutely Awesome!
I spent 6 months researching and reading about natural organic beds because I did not want to hurry the process and make a mistake. So, I could not be happier with the purchase and the absolute comfort of the bed, pillows, and sheets. All I can say is that it is worth the money. The only thing I would have done was to get the 12” vice 9 but I did what was within my budget. In time I’ll purchase another one for the extra bedroom—I want my guest to enjoy the same.

solid with no noise
Parts all in good shape upon opening box with the proper hardware to fasten/ secure . Directions easy to assemble including cover . After using for a month feels solid with no noise or creaking and the hubby is 300 pounds . The low profile was the way to go because of a thick mattress .

Super glad we got this
We found it easy to assemble (you don't need to be handy with tools and assembly). What we love most about it is sitting on, and getting up and down from a 5 inch higher mattress has made our lives much more pleasant at age 65.
