If you have decided to invest in an adjustable bed base, you have already taken an excellent first step towards superior sleep quality. However, choosing from the best of adjustable bed mattresses can be even more challenging than shopping for a run-of-the-mill bed. Adjustable bases can put ordinary mattresses through the wringer, and you might not be able to make the most out of your adjustable base if you select the wrong mattress. Although some mattresses are explicitly marketed as adjustable bed mattresses, there are a few things to look for to ensure that you get the best quality sleep possible.
What Makes Excellent Adjustable Bed Mattresses?
You might be wondering what the differences are between mattresses that are suitable for adjustable bases and those that are not. There are a few key differences, but an essential factor is flexibility. With adjustable bases, your mattress will have to flex and bend without wearing out or becoming misshapen, and it can be more challenging to find a bed that fits these criteria than one might think. However, it has never been easier to track down a high-quality adjustable bed mattress.
Look for Memory Foam and Other Flexible Materials
Aside from beds that are made expressly for adjustable bases, many modern foam mattresses are excellent options for adjustable beds. Unlike some thick innerspring mattresses, beds made of memory foam or gel are often ideal and will flex and bend with ease. While some innerspring and hybrid options are suitable, be on the lookout for too-thick mattresses or beds with a sturdy border wire. Mattresses with a thick wire frame inside often cannot bend properly.
Find the Most Comfortable Option
As with shopping for any other mattress, individual comfort is crucial. Everyone has unique tastes, preferences, and needs when it comes to support and firmness, so make sure to try out a few different mattresses before you commit. If possible, try out the bed you’d like on an adjustable base; the mattress you have in mind might feel drastically different (and uncomfortable) when it is propped up at different angles.
