The Truth About Adjustable Beds

By Christopher Smith

That suffering body has finally convinced you to enter into the world of adjustable beds. Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on such an investment, it's a smart idea to do a little question asking and guarded shopping. If you're trying to compare the distinctive adjustable beds available on the market today, here are a few characteristics that should be found in any bed you choose to buy.

Will It Fit Your Actual Bed Frame?

Believe it or not, one of the most common mistakes made by people searching for adjustable beds is that they don't choose a bed that will fit their existing bed frame. Regardless of whether or not the bed is adjustable, it should fit your current bed frame, including the head board and foot board. The idea that you need to spend additional money to make your bed complete shouldn't even enter into your mind.

Is It Easily Adjustable?

Something else to look for when shopping for an adjustable bed is to see just how easily it will adjust. Most have a simple electronic push button system that can quickly and with ease, adjust the orientation and height of the bed. As a matter of fact, many adjustable bed manufacturers today offer a remote control to make adjusting your bed that much easier.

Is The Bed From A Reputable Firm?

We've heard the old truism before - you get what you pay for. All too frequently, customers looking for comfort in purchasing a bed are ironically given sleepness nights instead when they try to have their bed repaired or find parts for their beds. As with anything you purchase, before you buy, check on the retailer to ensure that they are trustworthy. If you are unsure, consider going to your local Better Business Bureau (BBB) or pick up a copy of Consumer Reports Magazine. That said, there are plenty of companies who have established an excellent track record for after sale customer service such as Craftmatic.

Comfort Is What Matters In The End

The bottom line is that you will be spending one third of your life in bed. So why not make it as comfortable as possible? Try out different mattresses until you have found the adjustable bed that is perfect for you. Ensure it satisfies your needs for comfort, usability and features. Don't feel pressured by a sales rep. These beds can sell themselves.
