PURCHASING QUESTIONS

 

Do Adjustable bed bases come with a mattress?

No. The base is an independent part of the bed that replaces the box spring. The adjustable-friendly mattress of your choice rests on top of the base. Please see the FAQs under “mattress selection” for more information about mattress choices.

 

 

Will I still need a box spring?

No. An adjustable bed base takes the place of your box spring. You place your mattress directly on top of the base. If you have a bed with side rails, the base fits inside most bed frames and then the mattress fits on top.

How much does an adjustable bed base cost.

The individual retailers determine the price of the adjustable bases. To get an idea of pricing, you can visit a store or check retail websites.

 

Will I still need a bed frame?

No. An adjustable bed base takes the place of your bed frame. It has its own legs, which raise your bed off the floor. In some cases, adjustable-height legs are available so you can change the height of the bed.

Can I use an adjustable bed base with my existing bedroom furniture?

Yes. Adjustable bases are designed according to industry-standard bed sizes. The base easily attaches to most standard-size headboards and footboards with the addition of a box spring frame. Even if your bed has side rails, the base is meant to fit inside most of these pieces, similar to a standard box spring. Additionally, you might want to check out our photo gallery to see how L&P adjustable bases integrate with a wide range of bedroom furniture.

Does it require special sheets?

No. Adjustable bed bases are compatible with standard fitted sheets. However, if you purchase a split king (a base where the left and right sides move independently with two mattresses), you will need to use two twin XL fitted sheets – one for each side.

Will my bedskirt fit?

Standard sizes will fit the bed, but you may have to cut holes in the platform of the skirt to accommodate the mattress retainer. If so, it is recommended that you iron a fusible interfacing onto the back of the skirt platform for reinforcement; this will help prevent future unraveling after washing. Another suggestion to prevent unraveling is to sew buttonholes into the bedskirt.

 

Where can I buy an adjustable bed base?

Adjustable bed bases are sold by many types of retailers including mattress companies, department stores, and furniture stores.

FEATURES

 

What is the zero-gravity position?

The zero-gravity position on an adjustable bed base mimics the position astronauts take during liftoff. The position is meant to ease the stress on their bodies as they escape Earth’s gravity. The position raises the feet to the same level as the heart. People who have back pain or who would like to increase their circulation often find this position extremely relaxing.

What does Wallhugger® mean?

While other adjustable bed bases lift your upper body away from the wall – and away from your nightstand – bases with Wallhugger® engineering lift you up while simultaneously gliding you back. That means your favorite book and the remote control are within reach whenever you’re ready for them.

What is the difference between the Powerlift™ and Whisper Quiet™ motors?

They are primarily distinguished by their weight-lifting capacity. The Powerlift motor has a weight-lifting capacity of up to 600 lbs. in addition to the mattress. The Whisper Quiet motor has a weight-lifting capacity of up to 450 lbs. in addition to the mattress.

 

How much does my adjustable bed base weigh?

On average the bases weigh between 150-200 lbs.
