Is it Worth getting an Adjustable Bed Frame?

With today's advancements in home furnishings, shopping for products goes hand in hand with exploring a seemingly endless selection of opportunities to fulfill your unique haven to relax and unwind inside your home. Today, there is a smart version of just about every product out there, and these products are single-handedly reshaping how we live day to day.

The Smart Industry is ever-expanding, with more and more enhanced options becoming available for the fixtures of your home, like the base or bed frame that will accompany your mattress. At Bed Tech we thrive on making available the very best, affordable, and innovative technology offered for your mattress and adjustable bed frame. Bed Tech believes that the adjustable bed frame is the ‘Smart Base’ of the future that can support your unique needs to achieve quality sleep, a crucial pillar of our physical and mental health.

What is an Adjustable Bed Frame?

An adjustable bed frame serves as the structural support for your mattress. It should be a semi-rigid, sturdy place for your mattress to sit on top of. The idea is, that you are supported by the mattress, and the mattress is supported by your adjustable bed frame. Adjustable bed frames come with a remote, or two for split and split head sizes. With a touch of a button, you give the base(s) the versatility to lift or lower in specific areas, like the head, foot, or pillow portion of the bed frame. 

Adjustable bed frames are just one part of an elite sleep apparatus. At Bed Tech we like to call it a ‘’sleep system.’’ A Split or Split Head Queen or King size sleep system comes equipped with two remotes. One for each side of the mattress to serve dual functionality for couples that want to sleep in the same room, but also regain their independence to sleep more comfortably together. With a dual adjustable sleep system, one side of the bed can raise the head and feet into a Zero-G position to relieve back pain or combat breathing issues like COPD. The other side of the mattress can remain slightly elevated for a boost of ergonomic support, or remain flat to preserve a peaceful slumber. 

Many adjustable bed frames are also equipped with additional features like lumbar support relief, and relaxing massage vibrations. With several modes and settings to help you fall asleep faster, or simply de-stress and reduce aches and pains before bedtime.

An adjustable bed frame is typically more ‘’made to last’’ than your typical box spring and frame, or platform option. Similar to the importance of the foundation of a home, the more substantial your bed frame is, the better supported your body will feel. The more resilient your adjustable bed frame is, the longer the mattress will have the potential to last and provide comfort, pressure relief, and spinal alignment.
