Best Adjustable Beds

Selection Criteria for Best Adjustable Beds of 2020

​So you want to know what the best adjustable beds of 20​20 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 bed 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

​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 (​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 (​Watch 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 20​20

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 ​feature​s ​
  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, ​1st 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.

Top 7 Best Adjustable Beds: Detailed Reviews

This is our #1 rated best adjustable bed

1. DM9000s – Overall Best Adjustable Bed ​of 2020

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

DynastyMattress DM9000s Review

Major Pros of the DynastyMattress DM9000s adjustable bed frame

  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? !!
  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 specs described above, any DynastyMattress DM9000s adjustable bed 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

Major Cons of the DM9000s base

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 adjustable 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. Sven & Son Platinum – 1st Runner-up Adjustable Base

Sven & Son manufacturs 3 types of adjustbale beds: Platinum, Classic Plus and Classic. Platinum is the high-end adjustable bed out of the three and packs almost every feature the DM9000s possesses.sven and son adjustable bed review

Major Pros of the Sven & Son Platinum bed frame

  1. Independent 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 head board so that you stay adjacent to the nightstand
  3. Four Memory Positions: It has 3 preset memory positions (zero gravity, anti-snore and flat) and one programmable position 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 remoteSven & Son adjustable bed lumbar support
  5. FREE 10 Year Warranty: This is probably the best warranty you can get on an adjustable bed. SleepGeekz, the manufacturer/distributor of Sven & Son bed frames offer 100% coverage on mechanical, electric (including motors and power surges), and structural damage. They have $0 deductible policy (on parts and labor) with in-home technician visits, which according to SleepGeekz is worth $600.
  6. Miscellaneous Features:
    1. Storage bed compatible: you can keep this on the floor, on a platform bed or a storage bed with drawers. Mechanical components don’t stick out of the bottom of the bed on the Sven and Son Platinum
    2. 4 USB Ports: 2 ports on either side
    3. Head and Foot Therapeutic Massage with pulse and wave massage
    4. Height adjustable 3″ 6″ and 9″ legs let you raise or lower the frame as per your personal preferences
    5. Under-bed lighting and flash light on the remote
    6. Smart bed with iOS and Android apps
    7. Available in Twin XL, Queen, King and Split-king sizes
    8. Economically priced: prices can fluctuate, but generally, this is priced slightly less than the DM9000s
    9. Mattress options: SleepGeekz has coupled the Platinum base with several different soft, medium-firm and firm mattresses. If you already don’t have a good adjustable mattress, you can consider buying an adjustbale bed frame-mattress combo.

Cons/Limitations of the Sven and Son Platinum

  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. No Microhook mattress retention: you’ll need to rely on the mattress retention bar to make sure that the mattress doesn’t slide off

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

3. Amerisleep Adjustable Bed+ – Most Luxurious ​Adjustable Mattress & ​Frame

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

15 Major Pros of the Amerisleep Adjustable Bed +

  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 Adjustable Bed Review

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.

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

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. Glideaway Elevation – Best Adjustable Bed for heartburn and acid reflux

Glideaway Elevation Adjustable Bed Review 4 Articulations

The Glideaway Elevation and Ascend adjustable beds stand out like a sore thumb among other electric beds. Can you guess why, by looking at the image above? That’s right! While other adjustable beds for sale have only 3 articulations, namely, head tilt, foot tilt and pillow tilt, the Glideaway Elevation electric bed has 4 articulations. The 4th is known as ‘Elevation Lift’ which basically tilts the entire bed upwards at the head end. This position is known as the “Reverse Trendelenburg Position” and makes the Glideaway Elevation one of the best adjustable beds for acid reflux and seniors.

The Glideaway Elevation is undoubtedly one of the most feature-rich electric beds; however, it doesn’t come cheap. It is also one of the most expensive options when considering adjustable beds prices of 2020. This is why it didn’t make it to the top 3 in our list of best adjustable beds.

Major PROS of Glideaway’s Reverse Trendelenburg Position

  1. Helps combat acid reflux aka heartburn aka GERD
  2. Helps the elderly and disabled to easily get in and out of bed

Major CONS of Glideaway’s Elevation bed

PRICE – it ain’t cheap; in fact, it’s probably the most expensive in our list of top 10 adjustable foundations.

We have provided a detailed Glideaway adjustable bed review elsewhere; please refer to it for more details and a comparison between the Glideaway Elevation and Glideaway Ascend reclining beds.

6. iDealBed 4i Custom – Best Value for Money

Idealbed 4i Custom Adjustable Bed Review

First 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.

The Major Pros 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

The Major Cons 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.

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

If what you expect from an adjustable bed is not what is listed above, you will want a top-of-the-line adjustable bed with all the bells and whistles, we recommend you choose a model like the DM9000s, Sven & Son, Amerisleep or even the Glideaway Elevation if you need an anti-acid reflux bed.

Best Adjustable Mattresses

​Latex and Memory Foam mattresses are undoubtedly ​the best adjustable bed 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.

Notice how the adjustable mattress contours/aligns perfectly on the adjustable base. That's a feature of a good quality adjustable mattress.

  1. Hey Belinda,

    Thank you so much for all your insight and reviews! You’ve definitely helped me become an informed buyer with all your comparisons and detailed reviews. I just read your new review on the iDealBed 4i adjustable bed and it seems to be the best buy for quality and features at the price. One question I do have is it’s not listed on your top 10 best adjustable beds and upon reading your reviews and information it looks to be better than most on the top 10 list. Is there any draw backs I may have missed or anything keeping it from being ranked in the top 10 best adjustable beds?

    Again Thank you for all the help and such great information!

  2. @Rhonda,
    Thank you for your kind words; yes, natural latex mattresses are definitely the best adjustable mattress type. However, they don’t come cheap. The best adjustable latex mattresses can be as expensive as $3000. Here’s one of the best adjustable bed friendly latex mattresses; here’s a cheaper latex mattress, and here’s the Prodigy 2.0 + high-quality 12″ latex mattress combo.
    You’re definitely on the right track and you have done your research well. If you have the budget to support a latex mattress, by all means go for it. We’ll be eagerly waiting to hear about the heavenly sleep you’re about to enjoy!
    For your sleep!

  3. @Van,

    Sorry I missed your question. Can you please tell me exactly which model you purchased? Was it the Serta Motion Plus, Motion Perfect, Motion Essentials or Serta Motion Custom? As you may have seen, we have already classified the Serta Motion Custom II as one of the best adjustable beds in our review. Its ‘lumbar support’ feature is rare among adjustable bases (Reverie 9T also has this feature). It also has pillow tilting, which is great. The other 3 models are relatively basic models, nevertheless have decent consumer reviews.
    As for the Sealy Posturepedic InnerSpring mattress, it will work with the adjustable base; however, memory foam and latex mattresses are considered the best suited mattresses for adjustable type of bed. You may have already noticed that the mattress is a little hesitant/resistant to bending/flexing when you raise the head and/or foot of the bed. In contrast, latex and memory foam mattresses would easily flex and take the contour of the bed, especially when you have someone laying on top of it. Innerspring mattresses, especially if they are over 10 inches, would be a little stubborn in obeying the electric foundation!

    Sorry again for the late response!

  4. @Thomas
    We’ve been planning on this for the last couple of months. Have already tested it … give us till the end of the weekend! It’ll be up by 5th Monday, promise 🙂
    Monday 5th March update: Here’s the promised iDealBed adjustable bed review. Hope you find it useful.

  5. Hey Belinda,

    Could you give us some insight and a review on the iDealBed 4i Custom adjustable bed? I have a friend who purchased it off Amazon and swears by it.


  6. Wow… there’s so much to know about adjustable beds… never would have thought if I didn’t come across this review. However, it’s going to take me a while to digest all this. I will most likely buy your #1 best adjustable bed which is the prodigy 2. What would be a good mattress to put on it? I read that natural latex mattresses are better than memory foam mattresses? Any recommendations?

  7. Hi there,
    This article is awesome! Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, we just purchased our very first adjustable base without researching the best base. We thought we got a good deal with the Serta iComfort series. I still don’t know much about it. But we have a 3year old Sealy Posturepedic InnerSpring mattress. Would this be a good combo?
    Hope to hear from you! Thanks for your time.

  8. @Bev Frances,
    First of all, thank you for your vote of confidence. Yes, we do try to do a comprehensive job as much as possible. Comments like yours definitely help us get even more motivated to make our reviews even better. Thank you again!

    I presume you’re referring to the Sleepyhead Shift 500, correct? I couldn’t find a lot of details on the specific model. It seems OK, but like you said, it doesn’t seem to have some of the features that we categorized as ‘high-end’.

    I’m very impressed about its looks. It appears to be well built; love the deck-on-deck design. On, can you see the difference between the 200i and 500i? 500i is deck-on-deck and 200i isn’t. Therefore, the 500i can be even used as a stand-alone bed without a platform bed to cover the ‘crude’ underneath!

    They say it has zero-gravity position, which is great. Hopefully, it has one or two programmable positions as well. Would it be possible to call them to find out? If you do call them, also ask if the ‘vibration’ function they mention is anything like a ‘massage’? 🙂 Also, is there just one massage motor or two massage motors? Are there different massage speeds? I doubt it has pillow tilting, but it wouldn’t hurt to ask.

    If you could find a local store that stocks the bed, you could check these out yourself.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about USB ports, smartphone operation and nightlight etc. although it would certainly be nice to have them.

    Amazon definitely ships certain items to New Zealand, but they may not ship big items like beds., but it wouldn’t hurt to contact their support!

    Thank you again for your kind words and hope you found our response helpful.

  9. Hi. I live in New Zealand and we only appear to have entry-level adjustable beds. However, apparently Sleepyhead (who makes 2 basic models) has a high-end model. Sleepyhead is a NZ company. Any comments as to what we can do re buying a high end model here?
    Kind regards

    PS your site is extra-ordinarily comprehensive. Well done.

  10. Do you know anything about the motto sleep adjustable base? Saw one today under a Sterns and Foster mattress. Was very comfortable in store. I have tried the LP Prodigy in the store also.
