Common Adjustable Bed Questions Answered
Whether you are shopping for your first ever adjustable bed or you are simply in need of a replacement bed because your original is a little worn out, it is import to start your shopping journey knowing what to look for and how much you expect to pay to get the adjustable bed that best fits your needs. The following questions are the ones that we are most often asked. We hope that by reading some of our answers, you can save time before you begin considering the best adjustable bed option for your situation.
Q: How do Adjustable Beds Work?
This is one of the most common questions that we get at Flexabed. Generally, people have an idea of how flexible beds operate, however, the finer details are not something that is typically known by the average consumer. The easiest way to think of an adjustable bed is to look at it as a base upon which you place a mattress of your choice. Adjustable bed bases are constructed of metal frame parts that must be bent, assembled, and painted before the motorized control systems and motors are added. With many adjustable bed providers. , you will be asked to choose between a model where the remote is hardwired into the base or a model features a wireless remote. With the remote in hand, the adjustable base allows for the raising and lowering of the head and foot of the bed, providing sleepers with a fully customizable rest experience based on their personal preferences.
Q: How Much do Adjustable Beds Cost?
Price points for adjustable beds vary greatly depending on material used and the features that are included. The good news is that the popularity of adjustable beds has greatly reduced the price tags of these beds over the years. The popularity of this bed category still outweighs the amount of companies that are producing them, so the consumer is left with multiple competing companies that are doing their best to produce beds that are both high in quality and as low in price as possible. Now, this does not mean that adjustable beds are cheap, especially adjustable beds that are made to last for decades and not just for a few years. For quality adjustable beds, a consumer can expect to spend around $1800 – $2500 or, for some of the more high end models of adjustable beds, they can expect to spend as much as $5000. While the price tag may seem steep, the benefits that adjustable beds provide over the years that they are used far outweigh the initial cost.
Q: How Does a Person Pick the Best Adjustable Bed?
Picking the right adjustable bed for your needs really depends on what you are hoping to get out of the product. This question becomes difficult to answer because, like beds, all sleepers are unique in what they need to achieve that perfect night’s rest. If you a person that experiences a lot of lower back pain, the right choice for you may be different than a person that is looking to relieve snoring or sleep apnea. In our opinion, the best way to determine the correct bed for you situation is to speak to a representative that knows these products inside and out. At Flexabed, our in-house staff have been working with flexible beds for years and, as a result, are more than adept at helping you select the correct bed for your needs.
Q: What Types of Mattresses Work With Flexible Beds
This question is one of the most common ones that we have to answer. Rightly so, most people assume that having an adjustable bed means that you have to have a special mattress that will flex along with the bed. While this is partially true, it is less of an issue that most people think. Mattresses for adjustable beds fall into three main categories: innerspring, foam, and hybrid designs that incorporate both innerspring and foam characteristics. Mattress choice boils down to what you need out of a mattress. If you need firm support, an innerspring mattress is the way to go. If you need a mattress that is going to help to relieve joint pain, memory foam may be your best option. Again, we encourage you to speak with someone who has intimate knowledge of adjustable beds and can help you make the correct decision.
Q: Where Can I Buy Adjustable Beds
There are multiple ways to buy adjustable beds. Many online retailers allow for the customization of adjustable beds online and will ship directly to your store. On the other hand, brick and mortar stores allow for people to come in and see an adjustable bed before purchasing in order to test out many of the features that may be included with the bed. Here at Flexabed, we offer both options. Simply visit our website to choose your preferred method and we will match you up with an online retailer or, if you are the type who likes to see a product before you buy it, an authorized dealer who can assist you.
