Adjustable bed frames have become a popular sleeping option for consumers because of their comfort level and sleep benefits. Adjustable bed frames use a hinged frame and an electric motor to adjust your mattress into a number of different sleeping positions. At just the click of a button, a bed with an adjustable bed frame can be changed to zero gravity, reclined, or elevated positions. These various sleeping positions, among other features, provide various sleep and health benefits when an adjustable bed frame is paired with the right mattress. If you sleep with a partner, the right setup can improve comfort levels for both of you, even if you have different sleeping preferences. Best of all, an adjustable bed frame can help relieve discomfort from certain health conditions, including insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, chronic pain, arthritis, and heartburn.

What is an Adjustable Bed and How Does it Work?

As the name suggests, an adjustable bed frame allows you customize your sleep by elevating or reclining the adjustable frame to your liking. Most adjustable bed frames are hinged foundations powered by an electric motor that adjusts the position of the bed frame. However, there are some adjustable bed frames on the market that can only be adjusted manually. Adjustable bed frames with electric motors make reclining or elevating the head or foot of your mattress simple. At BedInABox® we offer motorized adjustable foundations that customize the position of your bed simply by the touch of a button. Some adjustable bed frames, like our MotionInABox™, come with a remote that even allows you to program and save your favorite sleep positions. With a remote, you can adjust your bed into the optimal position without the inconvenience of getting up.

Buying the Right Mattress for an Adjustable Bed Frame

The popularity of adjustable bed frames has given rise to many different options when it comes to choosing the right mattress for an adjustable bed frame. Today, you can choose from a combination of materials, flexibility, size, and thickness when selecting the ideal mattress for your adjustable bed frame.

Memory foam mattresses are one of the most preferred mattresses for adjustable beds thanks to their high level of flexibility and great response to pressure. Memory foam mattresses easily bend and return to their original form without compromising the quality and construction of the mattress. The general consensus – memory foam mattresses work really well with adjustable bed frames. While there are other mattress construction options, such as conventional innerspring mattresses, they must be designed with adjustable bed frame compatibility in mind, which often drives up their cost, too.

Something else you want to consider when completing your adjustable bed frame sleep setup is if you sleep with a partner and if you want a single or a split design. A split bed is when you have two independently functioning bases with a Twin XL size mattress for each base. This setup is also known as a split king size. A split king measures the same as a traditional king size bed, but allows each partner to better customize their adjustable base settings without disturbing the other. However, two Twin XL adjustable bases can be synced together and function as one unit should you prefer a traditional king size mattress.

Health Benefits

Adjustable bed frames can help relieve discomfort caused by various health conditions, including insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, chronic pain, arthritis, and heartburn.  If relief from this sort of discomfort is important to you or your partner, then an adjustable bed frame with a split king mattress setup may be the best option for you. This setup could provide custom relief and comfort for both you and your partner, allowing you to each sleep with your own settings without affecting the other. Given that memory foam mattresses also provide similar relief, a memory foam mattress perfectly complements an adjustable bed for comfortable and healthy sleep.


Sleeping on an adjustable bed frame can bring significant improvements to the quality of your sleep. Whether you experience discomfort during sleep due to medical conditions, or you sleep with a partner who doesn’t share the same sleep preferences, pairing an adjustable bed frame with a BedInABox® memory foam mattress can provide custom sleep for all sleepers at the touch of a button.
