Adjustable bed bases – beds that can be raised to a sitting position – have long helped people with back discomfort. But pain relief and a better sleep aren’t the only reason that they’re popular.
Some people enjoy the ability to watch a movie or work in bed with maximum comfort.
If you’ve thought about adding an adjustable bed base, you probably have questions. Here are answers to the most common ones:
How do they work?
A series of motors inside the base raise or lower the head of the mattress to raise you to a sitting position, usually between 40 and 70 degrees. By tilting up the top of the mattress, you can create a comfortable reclining surface for reading, watching TV or even falling asleep.
Many adjustable bed bases also allow the foot of the mattress to be raised as well. Advanced features include massage functions and wireless remote controls that let you adjust the bed without worrying about tangling a cord.
Why do people need them?
People prefer adjustable beds for many reasons. They’re particularly helpful when dealing with health issues such as acid reflex or snoring that can be aggravated by sleeping flat on your back. Adjustable beds can also help encourage better breathing for people who use CPAP machines at night.
Adjustable beds are also great for joint or muscle pain. By raising or lowering the bed, you can relieve pressure and give additional support to different parts of the body. Combine the adjustable bed with some additional pillows or cushions and you can relieve aches and pains in your head, neck, lower back, legs or knees.
Can I use any mattress?
Most mattresses come with huge warnings that you shouldn’t bend or fold them. But bending and folding is the whole point of an adjustable bed base! So what should you do?
The first step is to find a specialty mattress that’s specifically designed to move and bend. Visiting a store like Buckeye Furniture Mattress Center in Lima will give you plenty of options for choosing the right mattress that will let you enjoy all the benefits of your adjustable bed base for many years.
Do I still need a box spring?
No, you don’t. The adjustable bed base replaces the box spring by providing you with a solid, dependable surface to support your mattress. Once you’ve chosen the right adjustable bed base and mattress for you, all you need to do is settle in and enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.
