10 Best Adjustable Beds

Best Adjustable Beds

Adjustable beds are all the rage, and we’re looking at the 10 best. For folks who use their bed for activities other than sleeping—such as reading, watching movies, or working on their computer—an adjustable bed can provide maximum comfort throughout the day and night.

Kind of like the Swiss Army knife of the bedroom, an adjustable bed transforms positions to maximize comfort and utility for whatever activities you use your bed for.

In addition to their versatility, adjustable beds can provide relief to those who suffer from lower back pain by placing them in a zero-gravity position designed to decrease strain in the muscles of the back and increase blood flow throughout the body.

The Best Adjustable Beds

If any of these benefits sound appealing, keep reading and learn all about the 10 best adjustable beds and all their premium features. Whatever you think you know about great mattresses, be prepared for a surprise when you try out one of these.

1. Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Upholstered Adjustable Bed Base

Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Upholstered Adjustable Bed Base

The Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Bed Base has everything you would want when shopping for an adjustable bed. You can adjust the top half (where most people have their head at night) from 0 to 60 degrees. Leg height can be adjusted between 0 and 50 degrees, depending on your preference.

This adjustable bed base also comes with a zero-gravity option that positions the body similar to the way you would sit in a recliner—leading to increased blood circulation and relieving stress on the back. You can customize the adjustments so you’re comfortable sleeping, watching television, or working on your laptop.

Three massage speeds are just a click away with the wireless remote that’s included when you buy a Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Base. The massage feature can be localized to either the head or foot region, or have it work throughout the entire bed when you want a total body massage.

Two USB ports are located on the sides of the bed, making it easy to keep all your devices charged for the next day. If you don’t already have a mattress for your new bed base, consider spending another $250 on a 10.5-inch gel memory foam mattress by Classic Brands. 

Customers who have purchased this adjustable bed base have mostly positive things to say. The bed works like it says it does. The negative reviews revolve around the wireless remote control that’s included with this unit.

With the wireless remote, you can program a customized setting when you find a position that you find the most comfortable, so it’s easier next time to find that same position. This bed frame was constructed with a wall-hugging design—so as the bed position changes, the space between the bed and the wall behind it stays the same.

If a massage at the end of a hard day sounds like paradise, this bed may be the answer to your prayers. Three massage options, including full body wave massage, head massage, and leg massage, are available to choose from in three speeds.
