An adjustable bed base is expensive and therefore a significant investment. But this could be one that gives you instant returns—compounded.
Why Adjustable Bed Bases Are Bedroom Must-Have
What Is an Adjustable Bed Base?
An adjustable bed base is a bed foundation with an adjustable angle. You can raise the upper section and lower section of your adjustable bed base so you can sit up or allow you to find a more comfortable position.
Some bases come with remotes that allow you to control the angle and manipulate how your bed folds. Others will require you to get off the bed and adjust the bed base manually.
Like mattresses, adjustable bed bases come available in standard sizes.
Choose a queen-size adjustable bed base to cradle your queen mattress. Only an adjustable bed base can literally elevate your king-size bed from hotel quality to royal class.
What Are the Benefits of Having an Adjustable Bed Base?
1. Ease of Movement
Have you ever heard of a bed that could change your position for you?
The greatest advantage of an adjustable be base is that it allows you to sit up or lay down with the push of a button. And because you can change the orientation of your bed, you have more position options available.
Do you have a habit of reading a light novel before bed? Or do you start the day with the morning news? Angle your bed so that you can sit up in the morning.
Breakfast in bed is best paired with coffee and lumbar support.
This may also promote independence and self-sufficiency for those bed-ridden or dealing with chronic back pain. Because you can adjust your bed with a push of a button, you can change to a more comfortable position without outside help.
Pregnant women may find adjustable bed bases especially supportive and comfortable.
2. For Him & for Her
Marriage requires plenty of compromises—not with an adjustable bed base.
Many adjustable bed bases are made for the solo sleeper. Invest in a single sleeper bed base if you and your partner have very different sleeping positions.
You can fully recline your adjustable bed base when you’re sleepy. But if your partner is intent on finishing one more chapter, they can keep their bed in an upright position without disturbing your sleep.
However, if you’re a cuddly sleeper or don’t want a bothersome gap between your beds, some brands provide joint bed bases.
3. Reduces Snoring
Elevating your head is a simple yet effective intervention for sleep problems like sleep apnea.
The best sleeping position to put a stop to snoring is side sleeping. But for back sleepers that find side sleeping less supportive and end up resting on their backs again, this may not be the best solution.
One other option is to elevate your head. This is believed to open up your airways, preventing blockages that cause snoring in the first place.
4. At-Home Massages
What’s better than crawling into bed after a hard day’s work? Getting a massage from that same bed.
Some adjustable bed bases come with massage modes and even a zero-gravity feature that may help ease you into a restful slumber.
Browse for a bed that can target your sore spots. Those dealing with muscle and joint pain may find that a quick massage could relieve tension and soreness.
5. Alleviates Allergies
If you’re dealing with rhinitis, you understand how important it is to find a comfy sleeping position. One that allows you to recline comfortably but also props your head up so you can breathe easily.
6. Prevents Heartburn or Acid Reflux
Heartburn or acid reflux happens when stomach acids climb up to your esophagus, causing that burning sensation.
Staying upright may help prevent stomach acids from traveling up your throat. And when your stomach acids have neutralized, and you’re ready for bed, simply recline and relax.
7. Soothes Joint Pain
An adjustable bed base provides a wealth of sleeping position options. And these include positions and orientations that relieve pressure off of stiff, inflamed, or sore joints.
Elevate the lower half of your bed if your doctor advised you to keep your leg raised. Recline and turn on zero gravity mode to soothe neck or back pain.
Zero gravity mode adjusts your posture into a natural position. With your knees slightly bent and your head raised, experience the feeling of drifting into space and into sleep.
And if you’re suffering from arthritis pain, an adjustable bed base could provide mobility and ease of movement in addition to pressure relief.
8. Comfortable for the Bed-Ridden
Those nursing injuries have limited mobility. Now, imagine a bed that could do all the moving for you.
Having an adjustable bed base could help make it easier for bed-ridden people to find a more comfortable position. With the push of a button, you can sit upright with your knees slightly bent—all without exerting any effort.
The modifiable orientation and angle of the bed could also make it easier for them to get on and off with ease.
9. Recline, Relax, Repose
Deep, restorative rest is a good enough reason to invest in an adjustable bed base.
Sleep is a basic human necessity. Improving sleep quality is as crucial as nutrition and physical activity to overall health and well-being.
Unfortunately, around 45% of the worldwide population faces a sleeping problem.
Look for a bed that improves the quality of your sleep, supports your spine, relieves pressure, and provides mobility and ease of movement.
Other Things to Consider before Buying an Adjustable Bed Base
Adjustable bed bases are back-supportive accessories that entail back-breaking work. Because they are essentially machines, they’re made with heavy metal components and require at least two people to carry.
And if the layout of your bedroom and delivery logistics are not in your favor, maybe sleep on this decision.
But if this will give you the bed of your dreams, discuss with the seller if they can help you position the bed and set up the base.
Because of their mechanical parts, they may be more prone to breakage. Warranty periods are designed to cover the average lifespan of your bed base. But faulty wirings and technical difficulties are inevitable when dealing with machines.
Adjustable bed bases will cause your mattress to flex and compress. Innerspring mattresses built with metal coils may not work well with this bed base. Opt instead for a foam or hybrid mattress.
When you purchase a heavy-duty adjustable bed base, you don’t just improve the quality of your sleep for now. You also future-proof your bed, taking into consideration your future needs. And this may include spills and injuries we could never see coming.
