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.

I want to protect the integrity of my newly purchased mattress and get extra orthopedic support. It's important that it's made from organic and sustainably sourced materials. I also appreciate that it is made in the USA.

I needed a foundation and I like the idea of the low profile. My son's bed is very high and he is only 4 years old, so this will help him getting in and out.
Annielle M on Sep 25, 2017
Since I purchased the 12" mattress (tallest choice) I decied to select the low-profile foundation so the bed doesn't get too tall/high. I want to feel comfortable getting into and out of the bed!

We have a lower profile bed frame and the 5" foundation seemed to be a better fit.

The slots were less than 3" apart, which was very important to us. Quality seemed good.

Wanted sturdy support for our new Botanical Bliss 12 inch mattress...an 8 inch foundation just made the bed profile too high for our existing bed frame.
Suzanne R on Feb 27, 2017
I have a short bed ruffle on my current bed that I would like to continue to use. The low profile foundation should allow me to do this.

Great product
I didn't expect much difference from our other box springs. But these stopped some considerable movement (boucing/sliding) caused by body movement, that I didn't realize was being caused by our old box springs.

Had to get this or risk voiding the warranty
It does the job and I was able to assemble it by myself. I am a 73 year old woman with weak arms and hands due to spinal stenosis and I was still able to manage it. If I remember correctly, the directions are not terribly clear or were missing and I was helped by reading comments by other purchases about the best way to do put it together.

Great foundation.
The wooden foundation is very strong. It is a little harder to get the cover on it, but once assembled it's great.

good foundation, great instructions
I was a little worried about how difficult it might be to put the foundation together, but the instructions and labeling of the materials were simple and very clear. Easiest self-assembly item I've ever dealt with. With two people, it took maybe fifteen minutes to put it completely together. Our bed frame is a little higher and was designed to work without a boxspring, but the slats were too far apart for Plushbed, and would have voided the warranty on the mattress. The low-profile model does a good job supporting the 10" mattress without us having to pole-vault into bed.

Love the 5"H Low Profile Orthopedic Foundation
Since I decided to purchase the thickest mattress (12" Botanical Bliss Latex Mattress), I thought the 5" high Low Profile Orthopedic Foundation would make a nice pairing. I'm not short but I have occasional back pain and when it flairs up it is sometimes difficult climbing into and out of a tall bed. I've used it for almost 1-month now and am very happy. Think it's a nice choice for either those who like a more modern or minimalist style. Also, a good choice for those 55+.

Our Search Is Over
The bed had no odor. It sleeps very cool. Little motion transfer.
We sleep soundly. It has given me pain relief for my aching joints. The bonus latex pillows that came with it, give great relief for neck pain.

The box spring is easy to put together, very strong.
The free sheets and mattress pad protector is very nice.
