How do you raise a low bed?

Choose risers that will add the height you want.
Risers come in a variety of sizes, usually ranging between 1 inch (2.5 cm) and 12 inches (30 cm). Use measuring tape to determine how much height you want to add to your bed in inches or centimeters. Pick the risers that will give your bed the exact extra lift you want.

If you're used to a traditional bed frame, a platform bed may seem a bit too low for two reasons: The bed base itself is lower than your usual bed frame, and there's no box spring beneath the mattress.

Likewise, how can I make my bed taller without risers?

If you want to raise just the bed and not the frame, it is very easy. Go to your lumber yard and get 2X6 boards and put the across the frame. If you want it higher than that, get 4X4 boards to put on top of the 2X6 boards. That will give a good bit more height.

How do you raise the height of a headboard?

If you want your headboard to be higher but like the idea of sleeping closer to the floor, you can use risers to give some extra height to your adjusted bed. Alternately, you can make your own risers by drilling holes in a pair of wood blocks large enough to hold your headboard's legs.
