Why Spend Your Money On An Adjustable Base?

So you’re looking for some kind of mattress foundation, why spend your money on an adjustable base? Aside from the fact they make reading and watching TV in bed more comfortable, they can also be beneficial to your health. Certain positions on the frame will improve circulation, digestion, alleviate snoring, and more if you can believe it. It’s also great for couples—the parents of Slumber Yard member Tharon Green purchased a split frame after his mom had surgery so she could adjust her side of the bed to her liking, without affecting his dad’s side. Let’s just say it worked like a charm. In this post, we’ll go over our top picks for adjustable bed frames currently on the market, and hopefully we’ll get you a step closer to finding one.

Leesa Adjustable Base

BEST FOR:

  • Folks who want a thin, simple bed frame
  • Those who prefer buying products made in the USA
  • People with a Leesa mattress, or any other foam bed

Most bed frames on this list have a look that’ll essentially match any bedroom you put it in, but the Leesa adjustable base is a little different. Unlike the others, Leesa’s is very flat and thin. It also has a light, heather-grey design that’s simple, elegant, and appealing. So if you’re really looking for something minimalist that’ll blend right in with any decor, we think the Leesa Adjustable Base is it.

The Leesa Adjustable Base

Leesa manufactures all of their products in the United States (including this bed frame), and it’s available in twin XL, queen, king, and CA king. Your king and CA king mattress will ship in two boxes, so you can leave them split or sync them together to accommodate a standard king/CA king mattress.

It starts at 10” high, and the steel legs can be adjusted to 14” in 1” increments. So we think there’s plenty of room for storage underneath. This base has two adhesive strips near the foot of the bed, and a metal bar to keep your mattress in place.

Like the others on this list, the Leesa Bed Frame comes with a wireless remote to control the movements and other functions of the frame. As standard, you can move the head and feet individually, or you can move them at the same time—which a feature unique to Leesa’s bed frame. It also comes with under-bed lighting. It was slightly underwhelming, but still a nice touch to have just in case.

The Leesa Adjustable Base isn’t the most expensive one we’ve come across, but it’s also not the cheapest. We think it’s pretty moderately priced compared to the others we’ve tested. This base will run you about $1,100 for a queen, and about $1,800 for a king/Cal king.

TempurPedic Adjustable Base

BEST FOR:

  • Folks who want a luxurious bed frame
  • Those with a TempurPedic mattress, or any other bed that's compatible with a power base
  • People who want adjustable bed frame options (three models)

You’ve probably heard of TempurPedic’s premium memory foam mattress, so you could imagine they designed their adjustable bed frames to be on brand with their top-of-the-line beds. They offer three different adjustable bed frames, but we tend to favor the TEMPUR Ergo and Ergo Extend (TemperPedic’s top two models) because they come loaded with features including: zero gravity preset position, anti-snore mode, USB ports, under-bed lighting, a massager, and adjustable legs. The Ergo Extend model also comes with a pillow tilt adjustment that makes it even easier to watch TV or read in bed, and two additional massage zones.

The crown for the most premium looking frame, though, goes to the Ergo Extend (their top-tier model). It has a luxurious, plush look to it because the metal frame is completely wrapped in a dark grey fabric. That means you or your loved ones won’t be bumping their shins against the metal frame when your bed is in an adjusted position.

Not to mention, it makes the frame look incredibly sturdy and hardy. It’s a squeak-free bed frame, that’s for sure. In addition, this adjustable base had the quietest motor from the other bed frames we’ve tested. So even though it’s a little pricey, you’re really getting what you pay for. It also comes with a metal bar at the foot of the bed to hold your mattress in place, similar to the one on the Leesa Adjustable Base.

You can get a TempurPedic adjustable bed frame in twin XL, queen, king, split king, CA king, and split CA king. The second tier model in a queen size retails for about $1,500, and the top tier retails for around $2,200 in the same size. They’re the most expensive adjustable bases on this list, but we aren’t too surprised due to TempurPedic’s luxury reputation.

Purple Power Base

BEST FOR:

  • Folks with back pain/stress (fantastic massager)
  • Those with a Purple mattress or the New Purple 2/3/4 mattresses
  • People who want a colored bed frame (light purple/lavender)

The Purple mattress made waves when the brand introduced their revolutionary hyper-elastic design, so they had to think a little out-of-the-box when it came to their Purple Power Base, too. It’s the only base we’ve ever tested, or seen, that comes in the color purple. It’s not Oompa Loompa purple, it’s more like a lavender color. Some people will love it, others might not.

The frame is covered with padded fabric, like TempurPedic and a few of the other adjustable bed frames on this list. It comes with two different sets of legs; one is 3” tall and the other is 5.25” tall. What’s the point of having two different sizes? You can make your mattress closer to the ground if you have animals or small children, use the 5.25” legs for folks who are shorter, or you can combine the legs to make your power base 8.25” tall for those who want to use the under-bed space as storage. They aren’t the tallest legs we’ve ever seen (Leesa starts at 10” tall), but they aren’t too short either.

The Purple Power Base comes with extra features like zero gravity, a back-lit wireless remote, under-bed lighting, and even a docking station with USB ports for your remote. This is something we really appreciate, because it’s much easier to keep track of the remote if you have a consistent place to put it. You also have the ability to control the frame from your phone through an app called Reverie Night Stand, available for both android and iOS. We also want to note that you can move the head and foot section of your bed up and down (like any standard adjustable base), and it’s probably the fastest moving frame we’ve ever tested.

Power(Base) at your fingertips

Finally, we saved the best feature for last. The two-zone massage feature on the Purple Power Base is tremendous. Its vibrations are much stronger than others we’ve tested so far, because this base uses patented resonant-frequency massagers that can dilate your blood vessels—resulting in better blood flow. Improved circulation can lead to lower blood pressure, and help rejuvenate your body. So if you’re looking for a base with an extra special massager, we think Purple is the way to go.

Nectar Adjustable Bed Frame

BEST FOR:

  • Value shoppers
  • Folks with a Nectar mattress
  • People who want a frame with a modern design

When we say a mattress has a great value, we aren’t necessarily saying it’s the most affordable. Instead, we think you’re getting the best bang for your buck. Nectar is one of the least expensive adjustable bases on this list, but it comes equipped with most features people are looking for. When you buy a Nectar Adjustable Base, you’ll get a built-in massager, USB ports, zero gravity mode, anti-snore mode, and of course, basic foot and head adjustment abilities.

A look at Nectar’s adjustable base

We wouldn’t be shocked if an adjustable bed frame like Nectar ran for $1,000 or more, but they sell their queen size for right under $800. It honestly doesn’t get much better than that, as far as value goes.

You can get this adjustable base in twin XL, full, queen, and split king. The design is similar to TempurPedic’s middle-tier adjustable bed frame, and the Lucid L300 base we’ll get into shortly. It has a padded metal frame with grey upholstery, and we think it has a contemporary look that’ll pretty much fit in with any bedroom style. You’ll have about 10” of storage space underneath the bed frame at all times, whether it’s laying flat or in an adjusted position. It also comes with a metal bar to keep your mattress from falling off the frame when you put the head or feet up.

We think it makes adjustments pretty quickly, and the motor is decently silent. It’s kind of sounds like a bee buzzing around, but it’s a little more subtle. Overall, we think the Nectar Adjustable Base is a generally good bed frame, and it’s ideal for folks who want a feature-rich frame without paying a high price.

Lucid L300 Adjustable Base

BEST FOR:

  • Folks who live alone or move often (simple assembly)
  • Those with a Lucid mattress, or pretty much any foam bed on the market
  • Amazon shoppers
  • Price conscious buyers

We recognize setting up furniture can be a nightmare for some people. Whether you live alone, you’re constantly moving from place to place, or you simply don’t like doing it, we think the Lucid L300 is your go-to bed frame if this is a feeling you resonate with. First of all, it’s available on Amazon as an “Amazon’s Choice” product, and you can have it shipped via Amazon Prime. The website offers expert assembly for an additional fee, so you could go that route if you really want to make the set-up process easy.

Otherwise, it’s still a no-brainer to set up. We didn’t even look at the instruction manual during the process. All you have to do is attach the legs, plug it in, flip it over to assemble the hooks that keep the mattress in place, and you’re done. No annoying tools or screws required.

The Lucid L300 adjustable base currently comes in twin XL, full, and queen. If you have a king size mattress, you can order two twin XL frames and sync them together. If you have a California king mattress, you might want to check out the other bases on this list because the L300 currently isn’t available in that size.

You’ll get about 10.5” of space underneath this bed frame, so it’s perfect if you need a place for extra storage. The L300’s design is similar to Nectar’s; a metal frame wrapped in charcoal grey fabric. It comes with standard features, including head and foot controls, a memory “M” control to program your favorite position, and USB ports on each side of the frame.

The basic features on the L300 Adjustable Base

A queen size bed frame on Lucid’s website is about $800, the same price as Nectar’s bed frame. On Amazon, however, the prices seem to bounce around a bit. You can currently purchase one for $680, so if you want to save money (who doesn’t?), we suggest that customers check out Amazon first.

GhostBed Adjustable Base

BEST FOR:

  • People who want a ton of features
  • Those with a GhostBed mattress, and plenty of other foam beds
  • Folks looking for extra product protection (lifetime warranty)

GhostBed is known to make premium products without a high price tag, just take a look at their GhostBed mattress. So if you’re in the market for an affordable bed frame dripping in features, we think GhostBed might be your best bet. This frame has pretty much everything you can ask for; 15 different massage modes, zero gravity mode, anti-snore mode, USB ports, under-bed lighting, and more. It also comes with a “lifetime limited warranty,” which is pretty unusual for a bed frame.

A look at the remote and all of its capabilities

GhostBed’s adjustable base looks very similar to the Lucid L300 and Nectar frames, but it may be a little darker in color. It comes in three different sizes: twin XL, queen, and split king. If you have a king size bed, you can order two twin XL frames and sync them together so they move as one unit. Like the Lucid L300, this base also doesn’t offer a CA king option.

The frame is about 11” off the ground, so you’ll have plenty of space for storage bins, seasonal clothes, suitcases, etc. The light underneath the bed is also decently strong, so it’ll make it easy to find your things without a flashlight. It especially comes in handy when you’re trying to find your cat who likes to blend in with the dark corners underneath your bed.

GhostBed Base Storage
The storage space underneath GhostBed’s adjustable base

Like we mentioned earlier in this section, GhostBed’s prices are usually pretty fair. It’s not the most affordable bed frame on this list, but it’s certainly not very expensive either. A queen size frame will run you about $1,000. Alternatively, you can purchase an extended warranty which offers even more protection, but it’ll bump the price up to almost $1,400.
