Seven ways an adjustable bed makes life easier

We read, work, watch TV and even socialise in bed, and over the years, our awareness of how quality sleep can improve our health has grown. Because of this, the popularity of adjustable beds has grown. 

Adjustable beds are not only an investment in better sleep but in a better lifestyle too.

Over the decades, the way we use our bedrooms has evolved; gone are the days when the Master bedroom was off-limits and strictly private. Instead, today’s modern families are now enjoying their master bedroom as a central, multi-functioned room. We read, work, watch TV and even socialise in bed, and over the years, our awareness of how quality sleep can improve our health has grown. So, it’s only natural that consumers are now willing to invest in high-quality beds and mattresses. Today we explore some ways in which an adjustable bed can make your life easier.

1. Working from home 

Suppose you’re a bookworm who struggles to get into a comfortable reading position in bed. In that case, an adjustable bed may help you get into your ideal, supportive reading position at the push of a button. 

Perhaps you have an urgent work report to complete or some emails to catch up on; you’ll be able to find a comfortable seating position in bed with your adjustable base.   

2. Epic Netflix binge watching

At Sleepyhead, we talk a lot about healthy bedtime routines and love to educate people about why watching TV before bed isn’t exactly ideal from a sleep hygiene perspective, but the reality of it is – we all love spending time in bed, even when we aren’t sleeping! 

Having an adjustable bed frame may make a world of difference whether watching TV or using your laptop in bed, whether you’re recovering from an injury or simply relaxing down with your favourite Netflix series. All you have to do is raise the top half of your bed frames height. 

The flexibility to vary ergonomic settings will maintain your body at the ideal angle for viewing TV and will prevent you from getting a sore neck or back from trying to sit straight against your headboard. 

3. Create family moments

Celebrate special mornings like Christmas Day or Mother’s Day by raising your adjustable bed’s head and inviting the family in for breakfast in bed.   

You’ll be able to create memorable family traditions; maybe it’s Friday Night Movie night in bed, or maybe it’s a lazy Sunday in bed gaming – but these special moments will now be much more comfortable.  

4. Pregnancy

Pregnancy can make for an uncomfortable sleep, but with help from an adjustable base and compatible mattress, you can find a position that supports you and your growing tummy. 

Some women experience oedema (swelling of their legs) in late pregnancy. Swelling is common during pregnancy, especially in the legs, ankles, feet, and fingers. 

 It usually gets worse towards the end of the day and as your pregnancy progresses. Swelling that develops over time is normally not hazardous to you or your baby, although it can be inconvenient while a rapid rise in swelling might be an indication of pre-eclampsia, which requires immediate medical attention. 

When you’re pregnant, your body holds more water than usual, causing swelling. Extra water tends to collect in the lowest regions of the body during the day, especially if the weather is hot or you have been standing a lot. Blood flow in your legs might be affected by the pressure of your developing womb. Fluid might build up in your legs, ankles, and feet as a result of this. To help lessen the swelling, you can raise the legs on your adjustable base. 

5. New Mother Support

A Delta adjustable bed allows you to raise your back without putting too much pressure on sore muscles. It is the perfect solution for post-birth recovery and those late-night feeds.  

Feeding newborns often leads to lengthy periods of sitting. When feeding, a deep-cushioned sofa or chair might lead to improper posture patterns, creating additional back and neck pain. Because you’ll be sitting for long periods of time, it’ll be hard to keep your lower spine from bending forwards excessively. It’s frustrating to put a pillow or couch cushion behind your back to keep it straight, and can be painful as you’re recovering from birth.  

Feeding your baby on an adjustable bed while inclining the bed at an angle provides comfort and strong back support.  By raising the upper portion of the bed, the spinal cord will be properly supported. Lower back pain might be relieved by inclining the bed at 45 degrees. 

6. Recover after exercise 

After an intensive exercise session, your body’s recovery is often seen to be as important as the actual exercise. Your tired legs will appreciate the raised leg support function. 

A Delta base and compatible mattress provide customisable support, relieving pressure and actively supporting the joints that need it most. 

7. Stop the snoring

Maybe you know the situation? Your partner snores and keeps you awake all night. One of the simplest ways to minimise snoring is to ease the breathing by adjusting the backrest upwards – often as little as four inches is enough. With low-noise adjustable beds, you can help you and your partner – even without waking him or her first!
