Can You Use a Regular Mattress on an Adjustable Bed?

Adjustable Beds | January 30, 2020

Understanding whether or not you can use a regular mattress on an adjustable bed will make it easier for you to select the best mattress for you. At Innovative Sleep Solutions, we know that, while regular mattresses can be used on adjustable beds, there are a range of different factors that will affect how well a mattress works on an adjustable base. That is why our professional team members are always available to help you make the best mattress selection possible.

Types of Mattresses that Work for Adjustable Beds

Some of the different types of mattresses that can be used on adjustable beds are:

Memory Foam Mattresses

Memory foam mattresses are made from a unique material that is able to absorb pressure by spreading weight evenly, while also contouring to the natural shape of the sleeper. This type of mattress is ideal for adjustable beds, as it flexes easily and allows the sleep to experience pain-free comfort in a variety of different positions.

Latex Mattresses

Similar to memory foam mattresses, latex mattresses are also effective at preventing pain and pressure points. While latex has a different feel from memory foam, thinner latex mattresses are highly durable and can easily adapt to an adjustable system.

Air Bed Mattresses

In most cases, air bed mattresses can be used on adjustable bases; however, since flexing and bending can impede the flow of air, air bed mattresses may seem overly rigid when used on an adjustable bed.

How to Choose the Best Mattress for an Adjustable Bed?

When choosing the type of mattress that you would like to use on your adjustable bed, it is also important to take the following into consideration:

Mattress Thickness

In most cases, mattresses that are up to 12 inches thick will work well on adjustable beds. This thickness of mattress can be used in a flat position, as well as in a variety of head and foot positions.

Mattress Firmness

While any firmness level can be compatible with an adjustable bed, some types of mattresses can offer the ability to change firmness when used in different head and foot positions. Soft, medium, or firm mattresses can all be used on an adjustable base.

Durability, Flexibility & Quality

Since mattresses used on adjustable beds go through repeated movements over time, it is important to choose a mattress that offers greater flexibility and durability. This means that it is vital to select a high-quality mattress that will be able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use for years to come.
