My YouTube Review of the Zinus Low-Profile BoxSpring
With most modern mattresses, our bed-height was a little too low without a foundation or box spring, but a little too high with a traditional 8-10 inch box spring.
Enter the Zinus 4-inch Low Profile Bi-Fold BoxSpring!
This handy product is one where the title pretty much says it all (except for the "Spring" part -- read on). It's great for when you need just a little more height for your mattress, which makes getting in and out of bed easier. Additionally, I feel that it just makes things look nicer -- a low mattress just looks a bit out of place. We ordered it though Amazon (click here to see it on Amazon), and it was eligible for Prime shipping.
This low-profile foundation does exactly what it says it is supposed to do, and does it very well. Our goal was to raise out mattress up about 4-5 inches with ease, little assembly, and no squeaking or sagging. It comes in a fairly large box and is a bit heavy, so an elderly or frail person would likely need help. However, once it is unboxed, there is no assembly needed, just unfold it, flip it over, and zip it up. It would be very easy to take with you in a move.
This is not a "Box of Springs" - there are no springs inside. 95% of modern mattresses do not need a true "box spring" anyhow so that's fine. The purpose is just to raise up your mattress. It does not soften the mattress, nor is it designed to. "Foundation" is the better name.

About 3 1/2 weeks of use so far, it's holding up fine, and the mattress works very well with it. It is very sturdy, no sagging. No noise, no squeaking. The bars have not sunk into the mattress. The sides are a nice patterned white cloth. Nice enough that we have not felt the need to cover it with a sheet like with did with our old one! I would recommend this foundation if 4 inches is the best height for your bed setup.

We have a queen and it supports two grown adults just fine. According to the paperwork that came with the Zinus, it has a 5-year limited warranty (though it didn't specify what that covers), The flyer that comes with it also says that it can support up to 2,400 lbs. for the queen size or larger -- which seems a bit ridiculous, but I think the point is that it is very sturdy!
So far this is perfect. I will update my post if things change as we use it more and more. Really, I see no drawbacks, so all I can do is wholeheartedly recommend it!
