Finally, a bed that’s always “just right.”

If shopping for a new bed makes you feel like Goldilocks, with this one being too hard and that one being too tall, consider choosing a more flexible option.

Undercover Comfort

Thinking of bulky handrails and a sterile frame on wheels? Not so fast. No longer reserved for hospitals and elderly sleepers, modern adjustable beds are built for anyone, even those with the most discriminating of tastes. They are designed to blend seamlessly into a bedroom when flat. No one even has to know.

A Trend Lift

Believe it or not, adjustable beds are one of the latest trends in America’s pursuit of deep, restful sleep. And according to the International Sleep Products Association, adjustable beds are one of the fastest-growing segments in bedding.

So, Just What Is an Adjustable Bed?

There are both adjustable frames and adjustable mattresses. And as the name suggests, they let you control settings that adjust to your comfort level. Here’s how that breaks down:

Adjustable frames: Typicallythese beds have a motorized base that moves into different positions by raising or lowering the head and feet. They can also include features like built-in massagers, lighting, and speakers. Some are even “smart” and come equipped with sleep monitoring tech, voice commands, and more.

Adjustable frames or bases that go under the mattress options may work off a remote control or manually, and many king sizes are “split” so you and your partner can adjust your sides independently – no negotiating needed.

Flexible Benefits

Enjoy reading or chamomile tea before you catch those 40 winks? With an adjustable frame, the touch of a button essentially transforms your bed into your favorite recliner. Looking for that weightless feel? Elevating both feet and head for the “zero gravity” effect can be enormously relaxing. And some experts believe flexible options can help with various health issues, like snoring or swollen legs and feet. Some beds even offer lumbar support. For those who have trouble getting in and out, there’s nothing like a bed that moves up and down.

Ready to Make the Move?

There are many options and price points; adjustable models can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. You’ll want to ensure you find the one that’s “just right.” Before taking the plunge, ensure the mattress you have or the one you are buying is compatible with an adjustable foundation. If you’re not sure, ask a customer service team member. Some mattresses are designed to go specifically with a paired boxspring. So, do your homework or check your warranty to see if that impacts your buying choice.

You want a bed that gives you a lift. And an adjustable bed with a comfortable mattress does just the trick. Shop online or in-store at Texan Mattress for the best prices on your new sleep system.
