How do I raise a bed?

I would like to raise my bed about 8 inches off the floor. It is a mattress & box spring on a metal frame. What is the best way to accomplish this?

Hi, Donna-

I'd recommend checking out if you're looking to gain serious height. Other options can be found at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but that will probably only buy you about 4 inches.

Good luck!
