Comparing Adjustable Bases to Non-Motorized Bed Frames

Due to the advancement in technology today, consumers are given the option on what type of bed they want to sleep in. Before, the adjustable bed frames can only be seen in the hospitals but today, you can have one at home too. People can choose to have ordinary bed frames or adjustable bed frames at home. Before choosing, it is important to know the pros and cons of each type of bed. Keep in mind that your choice of bed will directly affect the quality of your sleep and comfort so you must think about your choices wisely.

Ordinary Bed Frames

Ordinary bed frames are the typical bed frames you see at home. Often, ordinary bed frames are picked out due to their style and design. Those who buy ordinary bed frames make sure that the design and style of the bed frame complements the interior décor of the room. Ordinary bed frames are made from different materials like wood or polished metals. Ordinary bed frames can also be customized to the customer’s needs and preferences.

Ordinary bed frames can really add to the aesthetics of the room and keep the mattress of the floor.

Adjustable Bed Frames

Adjustable bed frames are the beds you see in hospitals where patients can adjust the head and foot elevation by simply turning a level or using a remote control to do it. Before, people would think that an adjustable bed is only suited for the sick people but today, its uses have proven to be beneficial for everyone. Adjustable bed frames are more expensive due to the technology it uses. There are adjustable bed frames that come with wireless remote controls so you do not have to stand up and adjust the bed manually. Adjustable bed frames can also come with massage functions to promote relaxation.

Comparing Ordinary Bed Frame And Adjustable Bed Frame

Although adjustable bed frames do not offer much customization and decorative appeal to a room, there are far better benefits to be looked upon. Adjustable bed frames are perfect for people who suffer from sleeping problems, snoring, asthma, back pain and arthritis. The main difference between these two beds is the ability of the adjustable bed frame to position the mattress at a certain angle so that the body does not lie flat. Lying flat leads to several health complications and these can be avoided by simply elevating the position of the head and feet while sleeping.

You should know that a flat mattress does not support the natural curvature of the body. This is why the body can experience pain and discomfort when waking up. There is 85% reduced skeletal pressure when sleeping on an adjustable bed frame. Having an adjustable bed frame will make the body feel more comfortable, relaxed and will improve the quality of sleep.
