According to linen manufacturers churning out sheets to meet the growing demand for adjustable-bed owners, you are best served by choosing styles and fabrics that stretch and contour. Bottom fitted sheets should offer thick elastic hems and feature deep pockets, so your bed won't "unmake itself" at night when you adjust positions, toss or turn. Your magic number is 14: if a fitted bottom sheet isn’t at least that deep, keep shopping.
Quality is always important when purchasing linens, so you enjoy your sheets as long as your adjustable bed serves your sleep needs. If you’re already a stickler for cotton—or you’re happy with microfiber because it washes and dries so nicely—you’ll find both on store shelves. You may also prefer a specific thread count or weave density and you shouldn't have a problem locating exactly what you seek. Though a bit thinner than traditional linen fabrics, don't discount the ultimate in stretch and softness found in deep-pocketed polyester, cotton, or blended jersey-knit sheets, all of which are available in sizes and colors sure to suit your color scheme.
This decision is also going to require you to do your homework because you’ll find mattresses engineered specifically for adjustable beds that come in the basic three types you may be familiar with: Innerspring, foam, and hybrids that borrow from both construction types.
What characteristics are most important? Support, durability, flexibility, and thickness. Organic and all-natural mattresses work best. But remember this: choose a mattress that’s thicker than 14-inches and you could impede base functionality and limit the number of positions your bed can assume.
- Innerspring mattresses offering classic coil/spring construction sandwiched in-between padding/foam are your best bet if you like this type of mattress. Will a regular innerspring product do the job? Some manufacturers produce flexible innerspring styles that are less expensive, but you may not get the restful sleep you seek.
- Latex mattresses tend to be thinner, so flexibility is often a purchasing factor for people who describe the sleep they get as "buoyant." This all-foam composition excels at pampering the body’s pressure points and you can choose between natural and synthetic types of latex. Fans of this mattress type are impressed by the material’s durability. These manufacturers make mattresses that work well with adjustable beds:
How can you determine the best adjustable bed for your needs? This can be a hard question to answer because like sleepers, adjustable beds are unique. You may think a corded adjustable bed is the only way to count sheep because you’ll never experience reception problems that can happen when remote control units lose their signal.
On the other hand, if you’re likely to sip beverages in bed and there’s a chance you could spill it on your powered bed’s hand control, you could get a shock. If you need to take pressure off your joints, looking for a bed with zero gravity could be helpful. For fans of the adjustable bed, remote control models check off all the right boxes: there’s no cord to trip you up, you can spill all of the champagne you like without worrying about turning into one of Benjamin Franklin’s science experiments and a second party can control the bed if it’s driven by a wireless device, a boon to folks who are incapacitated and have problems doing the driving. We don’t have to add that if the remote goes AWOL, you’ll be in the same pickle as you would be if your TV remote disappeared, do we?
In terms of the engineering of adjustable beds, it’s best to think of this bed style as "a base," because as the experts note, adjustable base companies don’t usually make mattresses, too. These intricate bed bases are constructed of metal frame parts that must be bent, painted, and assembled before control systems and motors are added.
You’ll be asked to choose between a hard-wired model and a wireless remote when you shop. A hard-wired model requires you to situate your bed in close proximity to a power outlet while the second uses radiofrequency or infrared beams to adjust positions accordingly. Either type gives a sleeper one-button control over the areas you want to be elevated, lowered, or otherwise adjusted. There are advantages to both, though remote-controlled beds can be pricier.
Platform Bed Parts
- A floating design that has a larger top than a base. This creates the illusion that the frame and mattress are floating, or slightly hovering depending on the height above the ground.
- Slats or solid top, as mentioned above.
- Open base with space for storage
- Drawers underneath for added storage and organization
- With or without headboard and/or footboard
- Solid, little or no space beneath
Sleep and Sports
- A single night of 5 hours of sleep in tennis players was associated with decreased serving accuracy of up to 53% compared with after a normal night’s sleep. A 1.6-hour sleep extension was associated with a 36% to 41% increase in serving accuracy.
- In a study of collegiate male basketball players, an increase of objectively measured sleep from 6.6 to 8.5 hours per night over a 5 to 7 week period was associated with a 9% increase in free-throw accuracy and a 9.2% increase in three-point field goal percentage.
- For professional dart throwers, dart-throwing accuracy was found to decrease significantly after a single night of 4 to 5 hours of sleep, compared to after a full night’s sleep.
