Don’t get us wrong—finding the right mattress is *essential* for a good night’s sleep. However! Not enough people realize that a quality bed frame matters just as much. And if you have health issues (such as arthritic problems, post-surgical complications, spine pathology, poor circulation, or difficulty breathing), then an adjustable bed base may just be the best investment you can make…though really, anyone could benefit from an adjustable base. As Bloom Ergonomics founder Audrey Mitchell, COTA/L, CEAS, PAS, explains, “Adjustable bed bases offer a range of benefits for people who want to improve the quality of their sleep, reduce symptoms from a medical condition as recommended by their doctor, or simply find a more comfortable position for watching TV or reading in bed.”
So how do they work? An adjustable bed base can elevate the head and foot of your mattress between 40 and 70 degrees, which creates a more comfortable shape for you to read, watch TV, and even sleep. And many offer other fun features, like preset functions and massage settings. The price of an adjustable base all depends on the size and benefits of the bed you choose, and it’s up to you to decide what features you actually need, from built-in LED lighting and USB ports to voice control and automatic snoring detection. No matter your budget, you can find an adjustable base that fits your fantasy, and we’ve rounded up some of the very best to make your decision easier.
