THE KEY FEATURES TO LOOK FOR IN THE BEST ADJUSTABLE BEDS

ASK YOURSELF: WHO MAKES THE PERFECT ADJUSTABLE BED FOR YOU?

As anyone who has done some research can tell you, there are a lot of adjustable bases out there to choose from. Finding the best electric bed for you can be an involved process, but this article will help you consider some of the major factors to consider in your search. After examining the details of the frames themselves and the offers, you'll begin to figure out the differences between various brands, and start seeing which are the highest quality or which will work with best for your particular situation.

THE SUPERIOR ELECTRIC BED WILL STAND ON ITS OWN

Some of the key questions to ask yourself or your bed dealer: how heavy is the base? Some of the better electric beds on the market might be made from better, heavier-duty materials, but if you move a lot, heavy might be hard to manage. What works for you? How loud is the motor? The motors available now are quieter than in the past, but look for sealed casings that will stay quiet and remove the need for lubrication or maintenance. Can the base be used with your existing headboard and frame? Or is it attractive enough on its own? Form can be as important as function. You should also look for a solid warranty where the details are spelled out, not blanket lifetime warranties.

FOR THE ULTIMATE ELECTRIC BED, TOP IT WITH QUALITY MEMORY FOAM

When considering the best in adjustable beds, pay close attention to mattress quality. Being able to raise the feet or shoulder positioning can greatly improve your sleep, but a bed is only as good as the quality of its mattress. Most important is where it’s made. Surprisingly, most memory foam sold in the US is made in China, which breaks down after a few years and isn’t sanitary. When you get a high quality memory foam mattress to go with your adjustable bed, you get the best of both worlds – foam that bends to the contours of your spine, with a base that can adjust to the needs of your neck and muscles. The mattress ultimately determines the comfort of the bed itself.
