Project: RL Bed Frame Improvement

While we had the bed torn apart to re-engineer the washer hoses underneath, we made a slight change to the bed frame that made a big difference: We have the metal bed frame with the slats. We unscrewed the frame and slide it away from the "headboard" a few inches and then re-secured it. There is plenty of clearance when the slide is in before it would hit the dresser. This made an awesome improvement to the mattress support when you sit on the end of the bed. Couldn't do it before, the mattress would drop you on the floor because it was unsupported underneath. Much easier putting my socks on!! LOL! Just in case that drives anyone else crazy!!

I'm sure there's a good joke here somewhere.

Great idea! Have you already checked clearance with the slides in? I'm sure its fine, as I don't remember the slides having to crunch up the mattress.

Spring is getting busy already.

We went a step further. Since we have a SleepNumber, we completely removed the European Box Spring setup and installed new laun in it's place. We also lenghten it to provide more support at the end of the mattress.

Yes, there is still several inches of clearance in front of the bedframe. It's sooo much better

I can't really figure out why they made the frame so "short" but I am sure there is a reason. Maybe there are models where clearance is a problem.

I wonder if the double slide units like DRV require the shorter bed, so they catered to all
