A buyer's guide to finding the right adjustable bed.

Getting to know the basics

Everyone needs a good night’s sleep, but for many people, that’s hard to find. They spend all night tossing and turning on a flat mattress only to wake up the next morning still feeling tired. Add neck or back problems into the equation, and trying to go to sleep becomes a painful experience. This is why adjustable beds are so popular with people who suffer from these issues. Purchasing the right bed that meets all desired specifications can seem like a tedious task, but breaking down the process can help anyone better understand this in order to make a more informed decision. Use this short guide to help find the right adjustable bed without having to dig too deep into your bank account.

What is an adjustable base?

Adjustable beds are made of steel, wood, foam, fabric and include an electric control box with motors underneath. Using a remote control, the motor raises and lowers both the upper and lower portions of the mattress. Traditional beds, of course, cannot move at all. Adjustable beds come in all different styles. There are basic options that simply go up and down. Then, there are fully-featured models that include additional features. The adjustable bed is made to enhance comfort in bed, allowing you to virtually adjust in any position. The most popular position is Zero Gravity, this particular position mimcs a weightless feel on the body which is proven to increase blood circulation throughout the body, and relieve pain pressure point areas.

What are the benefits?

Adjustable bases provide a number of health benfits, such as back pain relief, snoring prevention, alleviation from acid reflux disease, and overall - better quality of sleep. If you suffer from bulging or herniated disks, acid reflux disease, post-surgery recovery, snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, or any other sleeping disorder an adjustable bed can help.

Adjustable beds enhance comfort by providing custom positions that alleviate pressure allowing the body to rest more easily.

Reading, working, eating, watching t.v. in bed? If so, an adjustable bed allows all these tasks to be done comfortably, and easy.

Choosing the right size is important.

Choosing a size that best suits you depends on several different factors. Here are a few things you may want to consider when choosing the right size :

1. Your height and weight.

2. How many people will be sleeping on the bed? Just you, you and your partner, or maybe extra space is needed for your pet.

3. The size of your bedroom. A smaller room may only accommodate certain sizes.

4. Your preferences. Some may prefer a bigger or smaller bed, regardless of their size.

For partners with different preferences, split king is the perfect choice. A Split King or Split California King will give you the freedom of having two units that operate individually, giving you the ability to operate each side independently. Refer to the chart below for demonstration. *Please note that all Split King bases can be synced to operate together as one for use with standard king mattresses.
