Selection Criteria for Best Adjustable Beds of 2020

So you want to know what the best adjustable beds of 2020 are. In contrast to many other sites, our top rated adjustable beds were carefully selected after a scientific ranking and review process. Bedroom Solutions' adjustable bed ratings were compiled based on the following 5 criteria.

  1. Availability of the 3 Most ESSENTIAL Features
  2. Availability of Supplementary Features
  3. Manufacturer Reputation
  4. Consumer Reviews
  5. Price 

Modern adjustable beds are popular because they have various features that help people not only sleep well, but also help fight back aches, acid reflux, restless leg syndrome (RLS) etc. etc. Here are the top 10 major features you should know about before reading our adjustable reviews.

Top 10 Adjustable Bed Features You Need to Know About

Out of the many dozens of features offered by bed frame manufacturers, we strongly recommend that you choose an adjustable bed with the following 3 specs if your budget allows. Their health benefits, in terms of saving your neck and back, outweigh the investment of a few hundred dollars.

3 Highly Recommended Features:

  1. Pillow Tilting
  2. Wall Hugging
  3. Programmable Memory Positions

These are HIGHLY recommended features with any age group, but especially so, if you're closing up on the senior years!

2 Optional Features (Click to Expand)

Not everyone needs the following features.

  1. Lumbar Support: recommended if you need extra back support
  2. Elevation Lift: recommended if you have acid reflux/ heartburn

You may NOT NEED all of these 10 features in your bed. But you MUST BE AWARE of these 10 Specs before you make that purchasing decision.

Click on the boxes below to expand and read up on the major benefits of these features.

1. Independent Pillow Tilting (Watch Animation)

For better head and neck support while watching TV, reading or working on the computer.

Pillow tilting adjustable beds explanation

Most adjustable beds have only (A) head tilting and (B) foot tilting. Head tilting doesn't support your head and neck sufficiently, especially when you're trying to keep your head straight while watching TV or reading a book.

Pillow tilting, a third level of articulation, provides the head and neck the additional support needed for watching TV, reading books, working on the computer etc. from bed. We strongly recommend you to pick an adjustable bed with pillow tilting because it can save you a lot of pain in the long run!

2. Wall Hugging (Click for Animation)

Keeps you close to the nightstand in the upright position

adjustable bed Wallhugger function explanation

On non-wall hugging adjustable beds, as you raise the head, your whole body moves forward placing the nightstand out of reach. Turning back to reach something on the nightstand can give you neck and back sprains.

Wallhugger engineering eliminates this and makes the bed base slide back as you raise your upper body so that it never leaves the headboard or the nightstand.

3. Customizable Memory Positions (Animation)

Program your one-touch 'favorite positions' as per your personal preferences.

Customizable memory position animation

Most average adjustable beds come with 'preset' memory positions instead of customizable memory positions. With preset positions, you have to be content with what the adjustable bed manufacturer programs for you.

In contrast, customizable memory positions give you the power to control your favorite memory positions based on your personal preferences!

4. Head and Foot Dual Massage

For obvious reasons, this is not comparable to a massage you will get from your personal masseur. The massage offered by adjustable bed bases can vary from a continuous vibration in entry-level adjustable beds to advanced pulsations or rolling waves (from head to toe) on premium bases. Further, the massage intensity can be changed and high-end models also have built-in massage timers which will automatically turn the massage off after you fall asleep.

The Science

Massage makes you relaxed and fall asleep by activation of the parasympathetic nervous system which in turn stimulates the release of a series of calming and sleeping hormones (e.g. dopamine, serotonin, melatonin). Whether it's real human massage, a mechanical and motorized massage or a weighted blanket, it's the same principle that helps you feel calm and sleepy. This is also known as Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) or Deep Pressure Therapy (DPT) and is used as a therapy in certain medical conditions.

5. Lumbar Support

Adjustable Bed with Lumbar Support

This was first introduced on Serta Motion adjustable beds way back in 2014/15 and later adopted by other adjustable bed manufacturers. This feature comes with an independently functioning 'arm' that jumps out of the bed exerting pressure on the back region. You can control how much it jots out and thereby control the amount of pressure on your back. This can help relax tensed up muscles at the end of a long day. However, if you have an injured backbone, you will need to seek professional advice to ensure that lumbar support will be harmless for your specific condition. Generally, the best adjustable beds for back pain are those with the lumbar support feature.

6. Elevation Lift for Acid Reflux/ heartburn

Beds with Elevation Lift can do wonders in combating acid reflux aka heartburn.

This 4th level of articulation allows the whole bed to be raised at an angle so that your upper body can be elevated above the lower body preventing stomach acids from refluxing against gravity in to the esophagus.

Elevation Lift Adjustable Beds

7. Furniture-style decking

Adjustable bed frame with furniture-style decking

This is an optional feature. The upholstered deck adds a touch of class and looks gorgeous in high-quality models. However, if you're planning on placing your adjustable base inside a wooden bed frame (sleigh bed, platform bed etc.), the upholstered deck may get covered by the wooden frame.

Therefore, we recommend furniture style decking especially if you will use your electric bed as a standalone bed without placing it inside a wooden or metal frame.

8. Zero-clearance

Platform or storage bed-friendly

Storage bed compatible electric bed frame

9. Height-Adjustable Legs

Some adjustable bed frames come with legs that are height adjustable: e.g. as short as 3" or as tall as 10".  This is a useful feature because it lets you change the leg height depending on your height or the mattress thickness.

Bed Bases with Adjustable Leg Height

10. Under-bed Lighting

This too can be a useful feature because it will give enough light to light up the floor to show you the way to the bathroom, yet be not too bright so as to wake up your partner.

Based on the availability of (A) above features, (B) brand/manufacturer's reputation, (C) available consumer reviews and (D) adjustable bed price, we have selected and reviewed the top 7 adjustable bed frames for your perusal.

Here's a detailed review of our #1 ranked adjustable bed frame to help you make an educated decision.

Overall Best Adjustable Bed of 2020

DynastyMattress DM9000s Bed Review

This is the most-feature rich adjustable bed you will find on planet earth right now. It has all the major adjustable bed features except one (read about it in the 'Cons' section below)

It has the following 3 'MUST-HAVE' Features:

  1. Independent Pillow tilting better neck support during reading, TV watching etc.
  2. Wall hugging to keep you close to the nightstand even in the upright position
  3. FOUR Memory Positions (3 programmable + 1 preset) on the remote to get to your favorite positions with a single click

7 More Pros of the DM9000s:

  1. Lumbar support to relieve tired/aching back muscles. This is adjustable; you can increase or decrease the lumbar pressure using the 'Lumbar Up' and 'Lumbar Down' buttons.
  2. Upholstered, furniture-style decking for great looks (hides the 'ugly' metal frames if you wish to use it as a standalone bed, without a wooden bed frame)
  3. Quad-massage with timer and rolling-wave feature
  4. Economically priced: adjustable bases from certain other brands are over $1000 more expensive (for a split-king size) despite having fewer features
  5. 10-Year Extended Warranty on Parts and Labor
  6. Microhooking mattress retention instead of the mattress retention bar which is old-fashioned and gets in the way when making the bed (tucking the sheets under the bar can be annoying)
  7. Platform bed/ storage bed-friendly (zero-clearance adjustable bed). More than 90% of the models have mechanical components jotting under the adjustable foundation preventing you from using it with a storage or platform bed frame.

Here are some additional 'BONUS' features (these are NOT 'need-to-have' features; but are definitely 'nice-to-have')

  1. 4 USB Ports (2 on either side)
  2. Height adjustable legs (6 - 10 inches)
  3. Bluetooth speaker + subwoofer
  4. Under-bed LED lighting

Discount valid as of 7.20am CST, 30th June 2020

What are the DM9000s Cons ?

We failed to find any drawbacks/ limitations of this model except for the following two:

  1. It lacks 'Elevation Lift' which is a feature recommended for sleepers with heartburn. If you don't have heartburn, its absence on this model is not an issue.
  2. Over the years, we've seen this model go out of stock regularly. May be they can't keep up with the demand (just guessing). Consider yourself lucky, if it's in stock when you're reading this.

Best Adjustable Bed Frame Reviews of 2020

This is our #1 rated best adjustable bed

1. DM9000s Base – Overall Best Adjustable Bed of 2020

The DM9000s by DynastyMattress is our #1 recommended adjustable bed of 2020. It won this coveted position in 2019 surpassing 2018’s best model, the Prodigy 2.0.

DynastyMattress DM9000s Review

Overview of the DynastyMattress DM9000s adjustable bed frame

8 Major Pros of the DM9000s
  1. Independent Pillow Tilting: DM9000s Independent Pillow Tilt on RemoteOf the many adjustable bases with pillow tilting, only a few have truly independent pillow tilting. When pillow tilting first came about, there wasn’t a dedicated motor for it. There were only two motors, one for the feet and the other for the head. After the head tilt was completely raised, the motor would go on to tilt the pillow section. In contrast, adjustable beds such as the DM9000s has a 3rd motor dedicated for pillow tilting. Therefore, you can tilt the pillow section anytime you want, even when the head section is completely lowered and flat. How cool is that? !! July 2020 Update: Extra 5% off in the Cart on the Manufacturer’s Website
  2. Independent Lumbar Support: DM9000s Adjustable Bed Lumbar SupportIn addition to the 3 motors for head, foot and pillow tilting, the DM9000s has a 4th motor for its independent lumbar support feature. You can raise or lower the lumbar support arm to increase or decrease pressure on your lumbar area. Just like there is a 4th motor for that, there are also a couple of independent buttons on the wireless remote to operate them. It is this lumbar support feature that makes the DM9000s one of the best adjustable beds for back pain. Check out what this customer has to say about the Lumbar Support.
  3. Four Programmable and Preset Memory Positions: DM9000s Programmable Memory PositionsThe DM9000s comes with three programmable memory positions and one preset memory position. The Zero Gravity, Memory A and Memory B are customizable according to your personal preference. You can program Memory A and B to anti-snore, lounging, feet relaxing, or TV watching position based on the most common positions you’ll use.
  4. Wall Hugging: up to 11″ back travel keeps you within reach of the nightstand even when you’re raised into a sitting up position
  5. Furniture-style decking: Furniture Style Decking of DynastyMattress DM9000sBeautifully upholstered furniture-style deck allows you to use the adjustable bed as a standalone bed without placing it inside of a wooden bed frame. However, note that this can also be an disadvantage: for example, if you were planning on placing your adjustable bed inside of an existing wooden frame, this may not fit inside your frame (make sure you double check the dimensions). Also, you’re paying for the furniture-style double decking and then in turn hiding it inside your wooden frame… doesn’t sound right does it?
  6. Great Price: all other adjustable beds with the above features are priced roughly about $1000 higher than the Dynasty Mattress DM9000s. So if you need these high-end specs, would you buy this model or pay an extra $1000 for a different brand?
  7. Lifetime Warranty: If you were worried about the relatively cheap pricing, worry not. The DM9000s comes with an amazing warranty
    1. Lifetime warranty on the steel frame
    2. 10-year full warranty on parts and labor DM9000s Warranty
  8. Miscellaneous Features: In addition to the adjustable bed specs described above, any DynastyMattress DM9000s review will tell you that it has the following bonus specs.
    1. 4 USB ports
    2. Bluetooth speaker system with a sub-woofer
    3. Anti-slipping Micro-hooking mattress retention system in addition to the mattress retention bar
    4. Under-bed LED lighting
    5. Legs with 6 – 10″ adjustable height
    6. Quad-massage
    7. Available in all the different adjustable bed sizes: Twin XL, Queen, King, Split King (Eastern), California King, California Split-King
2 Cons of the DM9000s Adjustable Bases

There are hardly any limitations as such; however, we list below two ‘imperfections’ of the popular reclining bed.

  1. Elevation Lift: The DM9000s doesn’t have the ‘Elevation Lift’ feature, a feature currently offered only on Glideaway adjustable frames. You only need this if you have heartburn. If you don’t have heartburn, aka acid reflux and GERD, you don’t need to worry about it.
  2. Stocks: Over the years, something we’ve noticed is that it doesn’t remin instock continuously. It goes out of stock, once every few months. We don’t know why that is, but may be the manufacturer can’t keep up with the demand (just guessing).

We have done a detailed DynastyMattress DM9000s bed review elsewhere. But you really don’t need to go there. Everything you wanted to know about the adjustable base was explained here for you !!

2. Amerisleep Adjustable Bed – Most Luxurious Adjustable Beds

The Amerisleep Adjustable Bed+ model holds a unique place among adjustable beds. Based on our research, it is none but the famous Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0, possibly made with some speficic modifications tailormade to Amerisleep requirements. While we really want to rank it at the #1 position, we can’t because it lacks a couple of features compared to the DM9000s and S&S Platinum, and also because it’s fairly more expensive than those two models.

Amerisleep Prodigy Adjustable Bed

Overview of the Amerisleep Bed Frame

15 Major Pros
  1. Independent Pillow tilting: for more comfortable reading, TV watching and browsing
  2. Wall hugging: to keep you close to the nightstand even in the upright position
  3. Four customizable memory positions: 2 on the remote and 2 on the smartphone app to get you to your favorite positions in a flash
  4. Two additional preset memory positions: Anti-snore and One-Touch Flat positions
  5. Advanced massage features: pulse, rolling-wave or full-body massage with timer
  6. Whisper-quiet motors: make sure that you don’t wake your partner up
  7. Excellent finish on the upholstery: cheap models have wrinkles, but not this Amerisleep base
  8. Up to 25 Year Warranty on the frame (depends on the model you choose)
  9. Safety Lock on remote: to prevent unintentional movements of the base
  10. Excellent manufacturer reputation: well known American company
  11. Eight USB Ports (4 on each side)
  12. Under-bed LED lighting
  13. Sleep timer and gentle wake-up alarm
  14. Smartphone/App compatible
  15. Up to 850 lb weight lifting capacity (including the mattress)Dual massage, usb ports, and under-bed lights of the Amerisleep motion bed
4 Cons of the Amerisleep electric bed
  1. Expensive: it is about 30% more expensive than the previous two models (for a split-king base)
  2. No lumbar support: this is a feature recommended for individuals with back issues
  3. No furniture-style decking: this can actually be a good thing if you’re placing this inside a wooden bed frame
  4. No elevation lift: this is a feature recommended for individuals with acid reflux and not everyone needs it
Summary of the Amerisleep Bed Frame

Finish-wise, nothing comes close to the Amerisleep Prodigy 2.0. If you want that luxury touch, can afford the extra expense, and don’t need lumbar support, this the Amerisleep is your #1 adjustable bed.

3. Prodigy Comfort Elite – Best Adjustable Bed Frame and Mattress Combo

Leggett & Platt Prodigy Comfort Elite Adjustable Bed ReviewThis model was given birth to by Leggett & Platt in 2018/19 when they added the major modification ‘lumbar support’, to their famous Prodigy 2.0 adjustable frame. This is a very high-end foundation that packs almost all the features of the DM9000s except two major ones.

The Prodigy Comfort Elite lacks the following features compared to the DM9000s:

  1. No Furniture-style decking
  2. Not a zero-clearance model (not storage-bed compatible)

7 Pros and Cons of the Leggett & Platt Prodigy Comfort Elite

5 Major Pros of the Prodigy Comfort Elite bed

  1. Prodigy Comfort Elite Remote FeaturesIndependent Pillow Tilting: similar to the DM9000s, this has a dedicated motor for pillow tilting. The foot section can be tilted by up to 45 degrees, the head section can be tilted by up to 75 degrees, and the pillow section can be tilted by up 7 degrees.
  2. Wall Hugging: it has ~8″ of back travel towards the headboard so that you stay adjacent to the nightstand
  3. Four Memory Positions: It has 2 preset memory positions (anti-snore and flat) and two programmable positions which you can set according to your personal needs.
  4. Independent Lumbar Support: similar to the DM9000s, this too has a separate lumbar support bar operated by a dedicated button on the remote
  5. Miscellaneous Features:
    1. 8 USB Ports: 4 ports on either side
    2. Head and Foot Therapeutic Massage with pulse and wave massage
    3. 6″ – 10″ height adjustable legs let you raise or lower the frame as per your personal preferences
    4. Under-bed lighting
    5. Smart bed with iOS and Android apps
    6. Available in Twin XL, Queen, King and Split-king sizes
    7. Price fluctuates, we’ve never seen it cheaper than $2500 for a split-king model. That’s about $600 – 700 more expensive than the DM9000s

2 Cons/ Limitations

  1. Foundation-style adjustable base: unlike the DM9000s, this is not a Furniture-style frame. However, this can be a good thing if you’re going to place it inside a wooden frame
  2. Not compatible with platform beds or storage beds: as you can see from the image above, various arms stick out the bottom preventing you from using it as a zero-clearance bed or keeping it on the floor

Even though this doesn’t have all the features of the DM9000s, it is your number 1 option if you’re looking for a electric bed without furniture-style decking.

4. Layla Adjustable Bed Frames – Best Mid-Range Adjustable Frames

The Layla adjustable base comes in two models: (i) the basic model, Layla Adjustable Base and the (ii) feature-rich model, Layla Adjustable Base Plus. This review is on the Layla Adjustable Base Plus.

Layla Adjustable Bed Plus Review

Important Features of the Layla ‘Plus’ Bed Frame

It comes with the following features:

  1. Wall Gliding (same as wall hugger technology)
  2. Head and Foot dual-zone Massage with 3 different intensities and auto-shutoff timer
  3. Three preset memory positions: Zero Gravity, Anti-Snore and One-Touch Flat
  4. Underbed Lighting
  5. Alexa/Google Home Compatibility and Connects to your smartphone via Layla’s Wifi App
  6. 30-day Trial (100% Money Back Guarantee): with such a guarantee, what have you got to lose?
  7. Four USB ports
  8. Easy assembly
  9. Adjustable leg height – the top of the base can be as low as 5″ off the ground or as high as 14″ off the ground as per your wish
  10. Anti-sliding deck – the mattress stays put without sliding off the bed
  11. Last but not least, it comes from the popular and highly respected brand, Layla

Limitations of the Layla Plus Reclining Bed

  1. No pillow tilting – no big deal if you won’t be watching TV, reading books etc. for very long periods
  2. The Layla adjustable bed also has the #2, #3, and #4 limitations mentioned above for the Amerisleep base

The basic model has fewer features than the above Plus model. However, it has a more economical and affordable price tag.

5. iDealBed 4i Custom – Best Entry-Level Base

Idealbed 4i Custom Adjustable Bed ReviewFirst things first… the 4i has been produced by iDealBed partnering with Leggett & Platt, a giant in the adjustable bed industry. If you checkout the DealBeds website, you’ll see that iDealBed has partnered with not only Leggett & Platt, but also Reverie, to produce several custom adjustable bases under the brand name of iDealBed. This is great news for the consumer because when you purchase an iDealBed adjustable bed frame, you’re getting the high quality of Leggett & Platt or Reverie for a much cheaper price point. Amerisleep has a similar partnership with L&P. The Amerisleep Adjustable Bed+ is very similar to the Prodigy 2.0 with a few customizations done for Amerisleep.

Major Pros & Cons of the iDealBed 4i Custom

  1. It’s manufactured in partnership with Leggett & Platt; no need to worry about the iDealBed brand name, if you haven’t heard that before
  2. Designed and engineered in the USA
  3. Two customizable memory positions
  4. Three factory pre-set memory positions – Zero Gravity, Anti-Snore, and Flat
  5. Three-speed and 3-mode (wave, pulse, continuous) massage with timer
  6. 850 lb weight lifting capacity (that’s one heck of a powerful motor)
  7. ‘Ultra quiet’ motor (they’re Leggett & Platt motors)
  8. Delivered to your doorstep, all pre-assembled. No need of fancy tools to make it stand up
  9. Raise the head section up to 70° and the foot section up to 45°
  10. Wireless back-lit remote (doesn’t look pretty)
  11. Four USB ports
  12. Under-bed night light

Limitations of the iDealBed 4i Custom adjustable bed

The following 3 specs are generally only found on the most high-end adjustable luxury bed frames and you shouldn’t be surprised that the 4i doesn’t come with them

  1. It lacks pillow tilting
  2. It doesn’t come with wall hugging
  3. It doesn’t have an upholstered, deck-on-deck design

We have done a detailed iDealBed 4i Custom review elsewhere on Bedroom Solutions. If you’re seriously considering this model, I highly recommend you check that out.

6. Bear Adjustable Foundation – Best Adjustable Base with an Aluminum Frame

Bear Adjustable Bed Frame Review

The Bear adjustable bed stands out like a sore thumb among other electric beds. Can you guess why, by looking at the image above? Well there are two differences mainly. One is that the Bear comes with a non-upholstered Aluminum frame. Secondly, it’s deck comes in 4 independent sections. It is a relatively basic model with fewer features than most other beds. However, it made it to our list of best adjustable beds on the basis of the high marks it scored on the trustworthy and familiar brand name and the high-quality of the product.

Overview of the Bear Adjustable Base

  1. Has wall hugging
  2. It’s from Bear
  3. It comes with a 10 year warranty

Major CONS of the Bear bed

PRICE – it ain’t cheap; in fact, it’s one of the most expensive in our list of top 7 adjustable foundations.

7. Milemont – Best-value Budget Friendly Frame

Milemont Electric Bed Review

Noteworthy Features of the Milemont Adjustable Base

  1. Most noteworthy feature of the Milemont is its cheap adjustable bed price. As of May 2020, you could purchase a pair of Twin XL Milemont adjustable foundations for under $800.
  2. It comes with basic head (up to 60 degrees) and foot inclinations (up to 45 degrees)
  3. One programmable memory position and one preset position (one-touch flat) on the remote
  4. Simple, 10-minute assembly
  5. Storage-bed compatible – use it without legs on a platform bed or chuck a luggage under the bed

High-end Features the Milemont bed Lacks

  1. No Pillow Tilting, Wallhugger, Lumbar Support, Massage, or Furniture-style decking
  2. No USB ports, under-bed lighting, height adjustable legs or microhooking mattress retention

Let us reiterate, the Milemont is not for those seeking a luxury adjustable bed with all the bells and whistles. This is a basic model that packs all the essential features that make a bed an adjustable bed.

Best Adjustable Mattresses

Latex and Memory Foam mattresses are undoubtedly the best adjustable mattresses. Air mattresses like those from Sleep Number also work. We do not recommend conventional innerspring mattresses and water beds to be used as adjustable mattresses. Hybrid mattresses with individually wrapped coil springs also work, but we like to emphasize again, that you'll get the highest durability with a high quality latex or foam mattress.

  1. Hi Kathy and Jim,

    First of all, those words mean the world to our team of hard workers. Our #1 priority is to help you choose the adjustable bed that suits YOU the best. I keep saying this over and over; the adjustable bed that suits me the best may not be the best bed for someone else because of the unique needs of different individuals. It is a principle that not only applies to adjustable beds; but to many other things in life!!

    Man, you’re really lucky that pulled a reserve bed out of their stocks and sold it to you. As I learn from the customer reviews section on amazon, Sleep Geekz is a great company with excellent customer support and your experience proves it yet again.

    Hope you’ll soon begin to enjoy your adjustable bed. A small word of caution on Wall Hugging: if your mattress is really thick (12″ plus), no matter how good a wall hugger your bed is, you will end up a few inches in front of the night stand. The adjustable base is usually about 6″ thick. Add to that the 12″ on the mattress. Add to that the thickness of the headboard too (if you have one). Assuming the headboard is also 6″ thick, even if the wall hugging takes you all the way back, you’re still positioned 2 feet in front of the wall. (6″ headboard + 6″ base + 12″ mattress). So if the nightstand is only 18″ wide, it will be 6″ behind you and you’ll have to twist back to reach it…. ouch ! If you happen to end up in a similar situation, just pull your nightstand 6 – 12″ away from the wall. It won’t look pretty, but it is sure to save your back and neck!!

    Thank you again for your kind comments and Bedroom Solutions wishes you a speedy and comfortable recovery!

  2. Hi Belinda,
    Well, we took the plunge and have purchased a Queen Adjustable Bed Base Frame (Individual Head Tilt & Lumbar) by Sven & Son. We purchased it with the firm 10” Cool Gel Memory Foam mattress. I believe this is the top of the line Sven & Son base. I know you rated them well. I talked to the people at Sleep Geekz and they were very helpful. This bed base has a 5 year end to end warranty with Sleep Geekz. Most have only a one year warranty, with a declining warranty after that. We may not like the mattress, but as you said trying a mattress in person is more important than the base. The base you recommended on Amazon did not have wall hugging and that is very important to me as I use a bipap machine and it sits on my nightstand. I found this one in the “other” suggestions at the bottom of the one you recommended. This base has wall hugging and the separate head and lumbar features which is really appealing. I told my husband we can try the foam mattress for now (maybe we will really like it – we do like the one we have in our camper), and we can go mattress shopping where we can lay on them in the future when I am healed. She originally told me their next inventory of this bed base would not be in until mid-November. I explained why I could not wait that long. She put me on hold and talked to someone else. When she came back on she said they had 2 of these in reserve and she would sell me one of them. And best news of all, one of them was in their Reno warehouse. We will have the bed base later this week!

    I want to thank you for your website. When I started this journey earlier this year your site was a wealth of knowledge to understanding the ins and outs of adjustable beds. I truly feel we have made an informed decision because of what I learned from you. So we thank you very much!

    Kathy

  3. Hi Belinda,
    I wish I was healed, but still recovering hence need for adjustable bed. Have a bed wedge and piling 5 pillows around myself works some nights and not others. I am thinking now that a base is the most important thing, and we can deal with a mattress later. However the base you suggested does not have wall hugging and that is important to me as I use a bipap machine and need to reach night stand to turn it on and off. The one you suggested does not have this feature, but when I looked at the “other” suggestions on the Amazon site I saw the Queen Adjustable Bed Base Frame (Individual Head Tilt & Lumbar) + 10” Cool Gel Memory Foam mattresses by Sven & Son. I am pretty sure I would not like the Memory Form mattress, but it is wall hugging and excitingly has dual lumbar support/head tilting (I would like and husband would not like lumbar support) this one interests me. I have asked the seller if it can be sold without a mattress and what the price would be. Your opinion again needed. – Kathy

  4. Hi Kathy,

    Of course I remember you. We’re a small team, our reader-base is relatively small, so we remember all of you that communicate with us… hopefully for at least a couple of years!!

    First of all, I am sorry to hear about your fractures, but happy to hear that you have recovered well. Just because a certain brand of adjustable bed is not listed on our site, that doesn’t mean that it’s not good. We simply select adjustable beds sold on places like Amazon, Walmart because we believe that the consumer reviews are unbiased. Bedtech, for example, is not sold on amazon.com. So even if there were any user reviews on their website which is https://www.mybedtech.com/bt3000-adjustable-foundation, I cannot trust them because potentially any manufacturer could write anything on their own website. In contrast, the user reviews on places like amazon.com and Walmart.com are authentic reviews by actual users.

    We were aware of the bedtech brand, but we don’t have extensive experience with it nor were there any independent online reviews that we could get our hands on.

    First, I think your decision to go with a non-split Queen size is correct. Like I mentioned last time, a queen bed is 60 inches wide. When you split this into two halves, each half will be 30 inches or 2 1/2 feet wide. As long as it’s NOT split, one can partially roll over and temporarily invade the other half a bit; and both of you can still be happy. But the moment the bed becomes split into two, you’re STRICTLY restricted to your 30 inches and that is a very limited space.

    Yes, I hate returning items too, what they don’t tell you about returns is that there might be a repackaging and return shipping fee, even though the product price is 100% refundable!

    The features of the bedtech 3000 adjustable bed are very basic, which is OK. But this particular model on Amazon has a ton more features for only $850 (pillow tilting feature can be extremely useful which the bedtech 3000 doesn’t have).

    The adjustable bed does not need to be personally tested IMO. It is the mattress that you actually need to test personally. So my recommendation is that you go for the above blissful nights adjustable bed on Amazon.com and to buy a suitable mattress of your choice locally.

    Unfortunately, the mattress you mention Kingsdown Tifton seems to be an inner spring mattress. Spring mattresses are the least recommended for adjustable beds because as you could imagine, flexing back and forth doesn’t work with springs as well as it would for memory foam or latex. However this particular spring mattress seems fine because it has individually wrapped coil springs. Even then, I would personally go for a memory foam or latex hybrid mattress. If you do decide to buy the Kingswood mattress, just make sure that the warranty information is Crystal clear. Also test the mattress on an adjustable bed raising the head, raising the feet and on the zero gravity position with just one of you lying on the mattress. Check if the mattress will flex sufficiently and follow the contours of the adjustable bed or if it is too stiff. The salesman might tell you that the mattress needs to be broken to work properly with the adjustable bed, this is where you will need to use your onsite judgment and decide if the mattress will remain stiff or whether it will one day soften up sufficiently!

    Hope that helps and keep us posted with what you eventually buy!
    Belinda

    Also try calling the mattress company on their customer support and pretend you have a problematic mattress and see how they respond just to get an idea of how they work!

  5. Hi Belinda,

    I emailed you a few months ago regarding a split queen adjustable bed. I can’t find that email now, or my back and forth comments on your site… maybe you remember me or not – we are in our mid 70’s. Regardless, my husband Jim and I decided a single queen adjustable bed will work for us, so we are going to stay with our queen furniture. Since writing you I am recovering from a fractured pelvis and broken arm – sigh! Regardless, a new bed has risen to high priority. Today we went to several mattress stores and the pieces we liked best were at Sleep Choice (locally owned in Sacramento, CA area). The adjustable bed we liked was a Bedtech 3000. They also sold Leggett & Platt. They said Leggett & Platt adjustable beds are produced in China. With the new tariffs they are having issues with current quality and pricing. I do not see Bedtech rated on your site, so am a bit hesitant on this brand. We laid on a lot of mattresses today and the one we liked the best was the Kingsdown Tifton. Again, never heard of them, but it felt the best. Do you know anything about these companies? The online adjustable bed and mattress I had researched and think I like is the iDealBed iEscape adjustable bed and the iDealBed i6 Sapphire Luxury Hybrid mattress probably liking the firm side the best. But I don’t have the opportunity to try this one before purchase and that is a bit concerning. I know all have return policies, but I hate having to return things. Pricing for both pieces at Sleep Choice is $2400 with taxes, setup, and mattress haul away. Pricing for both pieces from Dealbeds.com after talking to their sales people would be $2000 before taxes and no setup or mattress haul away. The pricing is close enough either would be fine. I guess I just need to know what you think of the Sleep Choice Bedtech adjustable bed and Kingsdown mattress companies. Thank you so much Belinda.

  6. Hi Vikki,

    Thank you for stopping by Bedroom.Solutions with your question. There are 3 options that come to my mind; but most likely, it’s the first one that will work the best.

    1. This bed from Envyy is known as a ‘Stand-to-Sleep’ or ‘Stand-to-Sit’ adjustable bed. Please watch the video on the above page and I think you’ll agree that it serves your purpose
    2. There are several adjustable beds made by Rize that also do the job. I recommend the Aviada bed shown on https://www.rizebeds.com/collections/adjustable-bases/products/aviada-adjustable-bed?variant=16995509239854. However, I want you to understand that once you put a mattress over it, it won’t flex as much as it would without a mattress. You will need to use a relatively thin mattress like a 3 – 4 inch mattress topper if you want it to flex that much. It would be the weight of your legs that would pull down the mattress together with the bed base. I recommend you strap down the mattress to the adjustable bed frame so that the mattress will follow the curves of the bed. I see a cheaper option on Amazon too, but none of the Rize beds flex as much as the Envyy does. The Envyy flexes almost to 90 degrees. One reason preventing the Rize beds from flexing that much is the bed height. See how ‘low set’ the Rize beds are compared to the Envyy. The Envyy is raised quite a bit from the floor, allowing a 90 degree flex at the knees.
    3. The third option is the group of beds with the Elevation Lift feature, which lets you incline the whole body raising the head end and lowering the foot end. But it doesn’t let you flex the knees down like the Envyy or Rize would. So, all in all, I think the Envyy is your best bet.

    I like to emphasize the mattress factor again. A thick mattress would not flex easily and along with the adjustable bed base. So you’ll have to use a thin mattress (or mattress topper) or go with the Envyy which includes a mattress which is tailor-made to follow the silhouettes of the bed frame.

    Hope this helps and even more importantly, hope I have helped you and future readers towards fighting similar pains!
    Wishing you all the best,
    Belinda for Bedroom Solutions

  7. I am looking for a bed that will accommodate the need to hang my legs down when I am trying to sleep. I have nephropathy, which is worse at night, especially when trying to get into a sleep-able position in bed. Most people sit down or lay down, propping their legs up to make them feel more comfortable. When putting my legs out in a position, as they would be in when raising the foot and leg rest of a lazy boy recliner, touching the legs to the surface they recline or lay on, exacerbates the effects of the nephropathy, causing pain and cramping in the calves and feet. If the legs can be bent at the knee and hang down to the floor, this extremely painful discomfort can be avoided. Will the foot portion of one of these beds accommodate needing to have the legs in this type of position, rather than elevated straight out in front of the body or even just slightly tilted downward, instead of completely downward?

  8. Hi Vincent,
    Wow, I’m lost for words. Thank you indeed and it is comments like these that keep Bedroom.Solutions going. Yes, expensive and fancy adjustable beds are awesome; there’s no argument about it. But not all of us need those high-end specs. I will publish your comment at the top of our website with the adjustable bed company you mention removed. Hope you won’t mind that.
    Thank you again for the vote of confidence on Bedroom.Solutions. It means the world to our members.
    Would love to hear back from you once you buy a suitable model.
    Belinda

  9. I had the rep from “ easy rest adjustable bed stayed 4 hours. She was wonderful sales demo and explanations. I am a 65 year old with back issues and more nor health issues. It wasn’t until I spoke to a higher rep in the company and he kept lowering the price. However now that the dust has settled I changed my mind with the cost financed and decided that cancel. Your video and knowledge has been instrumental and n my decision and I don’t need such an expensive one at that. I did upgrade to the top of the line model but I am calling to cancel and will consider “ less expensive options. Thank you for helping me in this. Your site was extremely appreciated and your professionalism impeccable. Thank you again ,
    Vincent
