Best Adjustable Beds 2021 - Top Editor's Picks

Before we get into the detail of each Adjustable Bed Frame, I wanted to give a special shout-out to my Top 3 picks for 2021. Here’s what is important to me, in an adjustable bed. I am looking for a quiet base that will not wake up my partner when I go to bed later than he does. I love for the bed to be ultra responsive to the remote and think all of the bells and whistle are really cool – of course not necessary for a good night of sleep, but if I can get ambiance lighting, I will!

My top adjustable beds 2021 are:

    • responsive enough to adjust as soon as I hit the button
    • include the zero-gravity position as a preset position
    • have several massage modes
    • come with the split King option so my partner and I can each control our own side of the bed independently

 

You will find more details on each one of them below, but here’s what my Unbiased Best Adjustable Beds 2021 podium looks like: 

Without further ado, here is all of the detail for Best Adjustable Base 2021 in each of the categories. Happy adjusting, guys!

When shopping for an adjustable bed, I understand that you have many choices and it can be difficult to truly understand the difference between products. Let’s look at our top pick 2021 – the GhostBed Adjustable Base. It is by far the quietest base in the industry. So quiet, you will wonder whether it is actually moving! Going for a quiet base is incredibly important, especially if you have a different sleeping pattern than your partner.

The GhostBed Adjustable Base also comes with 15 (you read that right, fifteen!) whisper-quiet massage modes. Those are heavenly good after a long active day at work. I might add, they are quite addictive! You’ll find yourself looking forward to bed time, just so you can get rid of the day’s tension and soothe your body to rest.

Note that, in the King size, GhostBed only manufactures a Split King. In other words, if you own a King-size mattress, you will be able to synchronize the 2 Twin XL adjustable bases that make up the Split King GhostBed base. It will feel no different than a regular King-size adjustable base. GhostBed, however, understands the value of a Split King, which allows you and your partner to adjust your side of the bed independently from the other. To fully benefit from a Split King adjustable base, you will need to purchase two Twin XL mattresses. Check our Top Mattresses 2021 to pick one that works best for you!

If you are able to spend about $1,000 on a base, you will find great value in the GhostBed Adjustable Base. Let’s look at everything that helped us rank the GhostBed as the top adjustable bed this year.

What we loved:

  • Whisper-quiet adjusting
  • 15 ultra-quiet massage functions
  • 2 USB ports on each side of the adjustable bed
  • Under-bed LED ambiance lighting
  • Zero-gravity preset position
  • TV preset position
  • Lounging preset position
  • Anti-snoring preset position
  • One-click back-to-flat position
  • Heavy-duty construction supports up to 2,000 lbs!
  • Flash light on the remote
  • Backlit remote
  • Easy, no tool required, assembly
  • 6″ legs available for purchase (reg. base comes with 12″ legs)
  • Headboard brackets available for purchase
  • Works wonders with the GhostBed 3D Matrix, one of our top 2021 Mattresses!

For right around $1,000, you get a lot of luxurious comfort and features. We absolutely love the GhostBed Adjustable Base and think you will too!

Shipping – FREE in the continental USA

Warranty – limited lifetime (extended warranty available for purchase to full cover parts, labor, and freight for an extra 3 years)

If you are like me, and technology matters to you, the Nolah Ultimate Adjustable Smart Base is for you. Also known as Nolah Adjustable Base With Wall Glide, it comes with the latest bells and whistles available on the market today.

Just like the GhostBed, you get infinite leg and head positions, massage functions, USB chargers, preset positions, and under-bed lighting. But with Nolah, you can add wall glide and voice control to the list.

Note that Nolah also offers only the Split option for King and California King. Not to worry, here again you can synchronize both sides of the bed if you don’t own Split King mattresses.

What is wall glide in an adjustable bed? It is a space saver and shoulder protector. The entire bed base moves towards the head wall as you raise the head panel. It keeps your shoulder as close to your bedside table as when you are laying flat, helping you reach your books and lamp even as you are in raised position.

 

What We Loved:

  • Wall glide technology
  • Head and foot massage with 3 intensities
  • Preset zero-gravity position
  • 3 customizable programmable preset positions
  • Use Alexa or Google Voice commands to control the remote
  • Under-bed LED lighting
  • 4 USB ports in the Twin XL and Queen
  • 8 USB ports in Split King and Split California King
  • Easy, no tool required, assembly
  • Works great with the Nolah Evolution 15, our 2021 Best Mattress Top Pick!

Which Adjustable Bed Is Right For Me?

If you are new to the Adjustable Beds, you are in for a real treat. You probably don’t even realize what you have been missing. I promise you, however, that once you step into the Adjustable Bed world, there is no going back. If you are ready to elevate your bedroom and a little tired of propping yourself up with pillows to watch TV, you are in the right place!

Adjustable Beds are the ultimate luxury in any bedroom. There are different kinds of adjustable beds and we will look at the different options below.

The best Adjustable Bed for you will depend on your budget and the bells and whistles you are looking for. I am personally a lover of details and something as simple of USB plugs connected to my Adjustable Bed makes a world of a difference. Why don’t we look at what makes an adjustable base!

What Makes An Adjustable Bed?

Over the years, Adjustable Beds have gotten more and more luxurious. I am seeing more mattress companies building them and investing in R&D to develop relaxing, pain relieving bed frames. They are also adding cool functions and transforming the bedroom experience.

Based on your budget, you can stay on a more basic Adjustable Bed Frame model, which will do the job and raise your legs and back independently. And if you are looking to spend a little more, you will quickly find yourself looking into massage modes, USB plugs, preset positions, and LED lightning. Adjustable Beds are comfortable and can solve lifestyle problems such as snoring and back pain. Let me share with you what you should consider before buying your new Adjustable Bed Frame:

Unlimited Leg And Head Adjustability

The main benefit of an adjustable bed is the infinite possibility to adjust your leg and head height. You can fully customize the angle of your upper and lower body with a remote, and to fit your favorite reading, lounging, TV watching, or sleeping position.

Most adjustable beds are made of 4 or 5 panels, 2 of which raise independently of one another, letting you fully adjust your bed to your favorite position. I recommend purchasing a frame with more than just 2 panels, to allow your mattress to take a more ergonomic position, allowing the lower portion of your legs to naturally bend.

Preset Positions

Many adjustable beds come with one or more preset positions, as well as customizable buttons to save your favorite positions. Let’s look at the preset positions available.

The pre-programmed zero-gravity is the most popular preset position on adjustable bed remotes. At the touch of a button, both ends of the bed elevate to position your feet just above the height of your heart. That position increases blood circulation and reduces your stress in the body. It simulates weightlessness and relieves most of the high pressure areas, in turn relieving some of the soreness. It is my personal favorite position and a real time saver to have it pre-programmed on a remote.

Other popular preset adjustable bed positions include lay flat, TV watching, lounging, and anti-snore.

The one-click lay flat position is great for going to sleep. Push the flat button, and from any position, the adjustable bed will flatten to get you ready to sleep.

The anti-snore position slightly raises the head portion of the bed and is usually used in the middle of the night, by the non-snoring partner. Some swear it has saved their marriage 🙂 Joke aside, it is a quick way to reduce, or stop, the snoring.

Some adjustable bed remotes have left 2 or 3 buttons for customized positions. Those are great to pre-program your favorite TV or reading positions. When sharing your bed with a partner, each person could record its own favorite position and have be just one click of a button away.

USB Ports

More and more adjustable beds come with USB ports, usually located just underneath the bed frame, and easily reachable on the sides of the bed. They allow you to easily use your devices in bed, while charging them. No more charging 3 feet away and weirdly bending to keep your phone at arm’s reach.

Wall Glide

This is a function to really look out for, but not yet available in many adjustable bed frames.

The wall glide function, or wall hugger, rolls the bed back as you recline the head, keeping your body at arm’s reach of your bedside table. This might not be the first function you think about when looking into a new adjustable bed, but believe me, once you’ve tried a wall glider, it is hard to go back to a regular bed.

Back And Leg Massage

The upmost luxury in the world of bedding. There is nothing like laying down, in zero gravity, and getting a gentle back and leg massage. While adjustable beds with massage functions were the rarity, they are taking the store front today, and the industry is definitely moving in that direction. More and more adjustable beds include back and leg massages, at declining prices.

When choosing an adjustable bed frame, if a massage function is important to you, consider options such as timer, intensity levels, and modes. Our #1 best adjustable bed 2021 is the GhostBed and it comes with 15 massage modes.

Under-Bed LED Lighting

Under-bed LED lighting is a great way to create ambiance lighting when watching TV. It can also serve as a nice nightlight and will avoid repeated toe stubs in the middle of the night.

Note that if you slide the adjustable bed inside your existing bed frame, there are chances that most of the light will be blocked by your frame. The LED lighting works best if you are using your adjustable bed base with a simple headboard.

Adjustable Bed Lifting Capacity

The lifting capacity of the adjustable bed can be of great importance.  When you are looking into the lifting capacity, be sure to include yourself, your partner, your mattress weight, as well as any unexpected guests (like dogs or kids).  Make sure you have a little buffer in case you go a little overboard over Thanksgiving. 🙂

Adjustable Bed FAQ

Can I Use An Adjustable Bed With My Current Bed Frame?

Most adjustable bed frames are build a little shorter and narrower than the mattresses they serve, allowing you to easily fit them inside your current bed frame. Only ensure that you first remove the wooden slats or center support beam prior to sliding the adjustable bed inside your frame.

Unfortunately, if you own a bed frame with under-bed storage, you likely won’t be able to fit the under-bed storage once the adjustable bed frame is fit inside your frame.  If you have a platform base, and the center piece does not come out, or a slatted base, which slats won’t come out, you will not be able to fit an adjustable base inside your current bed frame.

What Kind Of Mattress Works With An Adjustable Base?

Most modern mattresses will work well with adjustable beds. We find that all-foam mattresses provide the best experience, especially with the massage functions. We have tested adjustable bed frames with hybrid mattresses as well, and had good experiences. The only mattresses that should not be used on adjustable beds are water mattresses. Additionally, some older, traditional spring mattresses that use a border rod or wire, may not be compatible with adjustable bed frames.

Can A Regular Mattress Be Used On An Adjustable Bed?

Yes, most modern mattresses can be used on adjustable beds, with the exception of water mattresses and some older traditional spring mattresses that use border rod or wire. Modern mattresses made of all-foam, or a combination of foam and coils, work great however.

Will My Current Mattress Work With An Adjustable Frame?

An all foam, or latex bed is the perfect bed for an adjustable frame. Hybrid beds that have independent coil systems are typically going to be just fine on an adjustable frame. It is just important that those coils get the chance to move around without being locked into place. Most of the mattresses sold now conform to adjustable frames.

Are Adjustable Beds Healthy?

Adjustable beds can help solve some common pain points, and some swear that its has saved their couple. Many with snore issues, use adjustable beds to slightly raise their torso and reduce their snoring. Adjustable beds can also help in fight back and neck pain, acid reflux, heartburn, and relieve cold symptoms.

Do Adjustable Beds Need Special Sheets?

I recommend using deeper pocket sheets to avoid them popping off the mattresses. My favorite sheets for adjustable beds are the GhostSheets. Not only are they luxuriously soft, but they never pop! If you find your sheets popping, try using the BedScrunchie – a simple and inexpensive device that will keep your sheets in place!

What Is The Average Cost Of An Adjustable Bed?

You can expect to spend between $1,000 and $1,500 on a good quality adjustable bed frame. Some cheaper adjustable beds can be found on Amazon, but I would personally focus on some of the brands outlined in this Best Adjustable Beds article to ensure full warranties and sleep trials.
