What Is An Adjustable Bed?

An adjustable bed, also known as an adjustable base or power bed, is a type of bed frame that allows the user to customize the position and angle of the mattress and, in some cases, other parts of the bed. These beds are designed to provide increased comfort, support, and flexibility for users, especially those with specific health concerns or preferences.

Why Choose an Adjustable Bed?

There are several advantages to choosing an electirc adjustable bed:

A Better Nights Sleep

With an adjustable bed base, you can change your sleeping position. This ensures you can remain asleep for longer and wake up feeling more refreshed for the day ahead.

Health Benefits

The ability to recline into a variety of positions based on your needs can also help with varying health concerns. These include improving circulation, helping to ease back pain and offer relief from heartburn.

General Relaxation

In addition to the above, another advantage to selecting the motorised bed base is the extra comfort it offers. Whether you’re sat up in bed reading or watching TV, an elevated position will help eliminate any neck and back pains .

Different Sleeping Positions for Couples

Our larger size beds also benefit from dual systems. This means couples can adjust their sleeping positions individually with separate mattresses, suiting to their individual comfort needs.

How Does An Adjustable Bed Work?

Our motorised slat system is made up from a 5 part adjustable base which allows for the leg and head positions to be controlled. The mechanism uses dual electric motors which are low energy consumption while providing a strong lift of up to 155kg (24 stone). The movement is controlled by an easy to use remote. This is cordless for practicality.

What Does An Adjustable Bed Look Like?

The adjustable slat base system is available across most of our wooden bed range. This means that you can appreciate the stunning aesthetics of our wooden bed frames while enjoying the practicality of an adjustable bed. This includes the majority of our low beds, four poster beds and standard height frames, so there’s plenty of choice no matter what style you’re after.

Our adjustable bed frames can be mdae to measure to fit you perfectly, but some of our most popular standard size choices include adjustable single bed frames, adjustable double bed frames and adjustable king size bed frames.

Choosing the Right Mattress For Your Adjustable Bed

If you plan on purchasing an adjustable bed frame, an important consideration is the mattress you choose. Only certain options are compatible. The wrong type (or thickness) of mattress will struggle to adapt and shape to the electronic bases movements.

Memory Foam Mattress

Memory foam already holds the advantage of moulding to the contour of your body. This helps to evenly support your body weight. The added advantage is the foam flexes easily when used with our adjustable bed base.

Latex Mattress

This choice in mattress holds similar benefits to a memory foam mattress. These also work well with adjustable beds.
