Upgrading your standard bed frame to an adjustable bed frame or base can offer a host of lifestyle and health benefits. For example, adjustable bed frames and bases allow you to change position with the touch of a button, comfortably watch TV, elevate your head or feet or be in a different sleep or lounging position than your partner. Whether it’s the first time you’re going bed shopping, or you’re looking to upgrade your existing bed, learn more about the benefits of an adjustable base so you can be sure you’re making the most informed purchasing decision. Read on to find out more about the benefits of adjustable bed frames, the different types of adjustable bed frames and how you can style this type of bed.
Benefits of an Adjustable Base
While an adjustable base for your bed may come at a slightly higher price point, the benefits pay off in terms of your comfort and long-term health. Read on to learn more about these well-being perks.
Easier to Lounge
With an adjustable base, you can reposition the bed to provide maximum comfort for reading, watching TV or even working in bed. In addition, by adjusting the mattress to easily sit up or lay down, you don’t have to prop yourself up with stacks of pillows anymore.
It’s no secret that your quality of sleep dramatically impacts your overall health, mood and well-being. If you’re prone to snoring or acid reflux, elevating your head can help alleviate these symptoms. If you have poor circulation in your legs, you can raise the foot of the bed to elevate your legs when you sleep.
Adjust to Your Sleep Position and Sleep Habits
Depending on your preferred sleep position, you can customize the base to accommodate your desired position. For example, if you favour sleeping on your back, you can adjust both your head and feet until you find a position in which you’re the most comfortable. Also, if your partner is ready to fall asleep but you still have a few more Netflix episodes to watch, you can sit up on your side of the bed while your partner lays down comfortably on the other side.
Types of Adjustable Bases
Because there are so many options to choose from, selecting a bed frame is more manageable after you hone in on the specific benefits you want. Understanding the features that are most important to you will ensure you invest in the best adjustable base for your lifestyle.
