What To Look For When Buying An Adjustable Bed?

Aug 17, 2007
You may be quite impressed on adjustable beds and hence planning to buy one. You pay huge bucks for getting one adjustable bed and hence you cannot be careless while you buy. Choose a right one to get maximum comfort from your bed.

Here are a few things you need to look into when buying an adjustable bed.

When buying an adjustable bed the main inside factor you need to look into is the base. It is the base that has adjustable features of the bed. If cost is not a factor you can go for brands like Legend and Platt. They provide very good base with sealed motors.

There are two types of adjustable beds namely standard and heavy duty. If your health is in normal condition you can choose to buy standard type. Heavy duty beds have rails on the sides which help the bed user pull themselves up. This kind of bed is useful for people who have some health problem.

Have a look at the construction of frame and decide if you wish to have a heavy duty furniture or regular spring box type of appearance. Check the motors used and see if they are UL listed and CSA approved. Check whether the motor is insulated with rubber wheels. This is necessary for the motor to operate smoothly.

Adjustable beds are good when they have at least 50 degree inclination at head and foot. Check whether the bed you are looking has this. Adjustable beds are special because they allow you to adjust them as per your wish. Hence check if the different controls are working properly. See if the height of the bed is adjustable.
You can choose whether to have manual controls or electric controls. Again in electric controls you can have either wired remote controls or wireless remote controls. In case you are buying a bed with massage option, make sure that the necessary units have been installed into your bed and are in proper working condition.

It is preferable to choose adjustable beds which have wheels. Such beds can be easily cleaned as well as transported without much fuss. You can easily roll on to move them. Otherwise it is quite difficult to move these beds.

Opt for adjustable beds which can be easily assembled. This helps you keep it away when you're not using it. You can later assemble it when you plan to use. If the adjustable beds can be easily assembled, you can do it on your own. You'll not have the necessity of calling the mechanic every time you wish to assemble and disassemble.

Keeping in mind all the points, carefully choose an appropriate bed. Get home your adjustable bed in proper working condition.
