If you’re in the market to buy an Adjustable Bed, you’ll find that you have many different models and features to choose from. We’ve created this Adjustable Bed Buyer’s Guide, to break down your options and make it easier for you to choose an Adjustable Bed that’s perfect for your needs.
Adjustable Beds are popular for a number of reasons. Some people enjoy the ability to raise the head of their Adjustable Bed, for a number of activities, before falling asleep:
Others enjoy the ability to raise the foot of their Adjustable Bed, to relax their legs and feet, after a long day of work. Whatever your favorite activity in bed may be, there is an Adjustable Bed position to assist you.
There are also some people who enjoy sleeping on an Adjustable Bed for health reasons:
Aging adults and those with certain injuries also find that Adjustable Beds help them to get into and out of bed. Plus, massage features that are included with many adjustable beds, offer additional relief for aching muscles.
People make the decision to buy Adjustable Beds for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re interested in promoting better health, better quality of sleep, or you just want greater comfort during the time you spend in bed, there is an Adjustable Bed that can help.
Adjustable Beds are often sold as two separate parts. There is the mattress and the adjustable frame. While some retailers offer them as package deals, they are most often sold separately.
The frame provides the underlying support for your mattress and it is very important. However, choosing the mattress, or at least the mattress type, first, allows you to focus solely on buying the adjustable frame that will work best with your mattress, your preferences and your needs.
You must know the type of mattress you’re buying because certain mattresses react differently to being folded or manipulated by an adjustable frame. Conventional coil innerspring mattresses, for instance, do not react well on adjustable frames. They simply are not designed to be used in any position other than a flat position. Mattresses that work best for adjustable frames include:
The mattress you purchase must be designed to work on an Adjustable Bed Frame.
Adjustable Beds are not a perfect fit for everyone. They are especially not perfect for every couple. There are many things you should discuss with your partner, if you’re considering an Adjustable Bed for your home.
One of those things is whether you both have the same sleeping preferences. For example, if one of you is a back sleeper and the other is a side or stomach sleeper, an Adjustable Bed is not going to be a comfortable solution unless you purchase a split bed. A split bed has two separate mattresses and two separate adjustable frames, side by side. Each side of the bed moves independently with a split Adjustable Bed, and each side has its own remote control.
Options to consider for couples considering an Adjustable Bed include the following:
Give each new sleep position or adjustment a few days to see how it is working for you. Write down how you feel the morning after and elaborate on the quality of your sleep, for each position. Then decide which position works the best for your needs and save the setting.
Adjustable Beds can weigh between 500 pounds and 850 pounds, depending on the model and size. That’s a substantial amount of weight to carry up and down stairs, if you move frequently, or if you like to rearrange your furniture and change things up seasonally.
Don’t forget to consider the delivery and assembly as well. Some companies offer white glove delivery services that bring the Adjustable Bed into your home, set it up in the location where you’ll use it, and assemble it for you. This might be an upgrade to consider if you’re worried about carrying it upstairs or setting it up.
If delivery and assembly is not a concern for you, consider asking for assembly instructions before buying. Make sure they are easy to follow and something you understand and can duplicate. Also, consider reading product reviews from verified customers, of the Adjustable Bed you’re considering, to see if they report any trouble with assembly.
Some people look for Adjustable Beds with all of the bells and whistles, while others look for basic features which they can operate easily.
Popular Adjustable Bed features include:
Other features you may be interested in include the sizes available for the Adjustable Bed. This is especially true if you’re interested in a split Adjustable Bed. Make sure you explore your options before getting your heart set on a specific model. Typical sizes include:
Not all Adjustable Beds are available for all sizes, so take that into consideration during the selection process.
The warranty is a major selling point for Adjustable Beds. Different warranties offer different protections for varying lengths of time. Make sure you understand what is covered, how long it’s covered, and what you need to do if something goes wrong with your Adjustable Bed. It may seem like a simple matter, but some companies offer more transparency, when it comes to the warranty, than others.
The warranty is often a solid indication of how well a business stands behind the products they sell. For instance, PlushBeds offers a 20 Year Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty on their Adjustable Beds:
Also, don’t forget to include the ability to purchase an extended warranty when weighing the features of the Adjustable Bed. PlushBeds Adjustable Beds give you the option of an additional 10 year extended warranty. It’s an option that can bring great peace of mind for things not included in the standard warranty, such as:
The more you understand the warranty and what it covers and excludes, the better prepared you are to make informed decisions about whether to purchase an extended warranty, or even if the Adjustable Bed you’re considering is the right choice for you.
Gone are the days when all Adjustable Beds looked like hospital or nursing home beds. Today’s Adjustable Beds offer a wide range of stylish and attractive selections that will work with almost any decor and design. This is good news for discerning consumers, who are interested in buying an Adjustable Bed that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical and purposeful.

Plus, all of PlushBeds Adjustable Beds are fully compatible with most modern headboards, allowing you to work with your existing decor or a new headboard that works with your style.
Don’t buy an Adjustable Bed from just anyone offering to sell them. Do your homework and learn about the reputation of the manufacturer, for dealing with the following types of issues:
Check out online reviews and the Better Business Bureau to learn about how the manufacturer handles issues that may arise under the warranty. Also consider how responsive the company is to your questions, while you’re doing your research, to see if they are a good fit.
Most Adjustable Beds can be adjusted into a wide variety of positions, for comfort and health, including these listed below:
Head Raised Positions
The head of most Adjustable Beds can be raised to a variety of angles. PlushBeds Adjustable Beds accommodate maximum head lifting ranges between 58 degrees and 70 degrees, offering a variety, to accommodate the varied needs of our customers.
Raising the head of the bed is particularly useful for those with the following health issues:
Many people find the ability to raise their heads, even minimally, while sleeping, is reason enough to purchase an Adjustable Bed, and the benefits are well worth the cost.
Feet Raised Positions
Sleeping with your feet elevated offers a variety of health benefits worth considering, including those listed below:
Whatever the reason, some people prefer to sleep with their upper body flat and their feet elevated. PlushBeds Adjustable Beds accommodate maximum foot elevations between 42 and 47 degrees.
Zero Gravity Positions
This term refers to a position in which your body achieves a sensation of weightlessness, similar to being in space. In this position, which all PlushBeds Adjustable Bases can achieve, your body experiences incredible pressure relief, allowing you to rest easier and more comfortably. Sleeping in the zero-gravity position provides the following benefits:
The improvements to quality of sleep alone, are worth the investment in an Adjustable Bed, as it helps to enhance mood, boost performance and reduce stress.
Wall Hugger vs. Wall Snuggler
Different manufacturers of Adjustable Beds use different terminology to refer to their technology. The terms wall hugger and wall snuggler apply to similar technologies, that allow Adjustable Beds to move into different positions, without shifting away from the walls and bedside tables. With a traditional Adjustable Bed, the head of the bed pulls away from the wall whenever it is raised.
This does not occur with Adjustable Beds that have wall hugging or snuggling technologies. Instead, the head of the bed remains in the same position, close to the wall. Why does this matter? Because remaining in the same position allows you to reach your bedside table, without pulling it away from the wall. If your bed pulls away from the wall, it’s more difficult to grab things from your bedside table. Wall hugger and wall snuggler technology eliminates this issue, which is why it’s important to seek Adjustable Beds that offer this benefit.
