Having trouble getting a good night’s sleep? Adjustable bed bases are a great option, especially if you watch TV or catch up on e-mails in bed. Here’s what you need to know before buying an adjustable base bed frame.

Why Choose an Adjustable Bed?

If you’re buying a new mattress, you’re probably already aware of the countless types of mattresses available. While adjustable beds tend to be more expensive, they make up for the price with plenty of perks.

Elevation Control

For people with certain medical problems, adjustable beds allow for some relief from their symptoms. If, for example, you’re suffering from allergies or acid reflux, sleeping with your head elevated can encourage drainage and help you sleep more comfortably. It can even help prevent snoring! Choosing different ergonomic settings can also provide relief for people who suffer from arthritis and joint pain. Even if you don’t suffer from medical issues, you’ll love being able to watch TV comfortably from bed!

Easy Mobility

If you have decreased mobility and have trouble getting in and out of bed, adjustable bed bases can help. Rather than standing up from the flat position, you have the option of elevating your back to help you easily and safely stand. Plus, many adjustable bases have different height settings to choose from, so you can choose the bed height that works best for you.

Massage Potential

Do you have back or foot pain? Many adjustable base beds have massage capabilities, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy an in-bed massage.

Can You Use a Regular Mattress on an Adjustable Bed?

While you can use regular innerspring mattresses on an adjustable bed base, you’ll want to be sure it’s compatible before making the transition. Some innerspring beds have interlocking coils, which can get tangled when adjusted to certain settings. That said, adjustable bed frames can be compatible with all types of mattresses, including innerspring, memory foam, and hybrid mattresses.
