A lot of people worry that their adjustable bed will require them to change the entire decor of their bedroom, or that the adjustable bed will look like a hospital bed. This couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, any adjustable bed can be made to fit with your existing frame and headboard, allowing you to keep the look and feel of your room, combined with the comfort and benefits of an adjustable bed.
Don’t give up the many health benefits that come from a relaxing and invigorating adjustable bed just because you think it won’t fit in. You can move your body into a zero-gravity position or take the load off your pressure points all from the comfort of whatever bed and headboard you like.
An adjustable bed fits snugly into a standard bed frame, as the adjustable bed base is narrower than a frame. The only thing you would have to change is if your current bed frame has slats or support rails—those would need to be removed to make space for your bed base, but that’s no worry as the bed base already provides its own support for the adjustable bed and mattress.
What Mattress Can Be Used with an Adjustable Bed?
A common misconception about adjustable beds is that the mattresses are a different size from standard, common mattress sizes. But they’re not. They are the same size, so an adjustable bed, in its flat position, would look exactly the same as your regular bed in its frame.
The dimensions of an adjustable bed mattress are the same as the dimensions of a standard mattress—an adjustable queen is the same size as a standard queen, for example.
Some Common Questions
What if my bed frame and my adjustable bed are not the same height?
This doesn’t need to be a concern. Adjustable beds have legs that can be adjusted to change their height, so you can make your adjustable bed fit snugly into your existing (or new) bed frame.
What if I just have a headboard?
You can get your adjustable bed with brackets to attach to your favorite headboard, so you can keep the look and feel of your bedroom decor.
What if the adjustable bed splits in the middle? Does it still fit?
If you buy an adjustable queen or king that splits down the middle (to allow you and your sleeping partner to individually adjust your own side) then the overall dimensions of the two sides, put together, would equal a standard queen or king. You can even get special fitted sheets that perfectly match your adjustable splitting bed, so no need to worry about that.
What if I have a platform bed?
If you have a platform bed, the adjustable bed’s legs can come off and you can sit it directly atop the platform. A perfect fit!
What if I just have a metal bedframe and headboard?
Then you have nothing to worry about. The adjustable bed will fit snugly into your frame.
There’s no need to worry about the dimensions of your adjustable bed mattress size. The same size bed frame can accommodate an adjustable bed just as well.
