What to Consider before Buying an Adjustable Bed

Adjustable beds are becoming increasingly popular with people of all ages. Not only can they help people suffering from lower back pain, arthritis, heartburn, acid reflux and other conditions but they can also offer you the opportunity to watch TV and read at a comfortable level whilst your partner sleeps soundly next to you.

An adjustable bed can make a big difference to your life so it’s vital that you take your time choosing the right one for you. If this seems like a big decision to make then don’t forget you can ask your loved ones, your occupational therapist or nurse to help. You can also ring us on 0800 111 4774 or call into one of our showrooms in Birmingham, Essex or Uxbridge. We’ll be happy to give you a personal recommendation.

In this blog post we aim to highlight some of the things you should ask yourself:

  • Which features do you want your adjustable bed to have? Do you want it to contour to your body? Do you want an orthopaedic mattress?
  • Do you have a friend who has an adjustable bed you like? If so, ask them where they got it from. Don’t be afraid to ask them if there is anything they would change about their bed to make it even better.
  • What’s your budget? Adjustable beds are generally more expensive than standard beds because they offer you so much more.
  • How much space do you have available? Make sure you’ve measured up so you don’t choose a bed that’s too big.
  • Can you try it before you buy? Is it comfortable?
  • Are you buying from a trusted, established company?
  • What colours/sizes do you like? Most of our beds come in a range of different colours and sizes.
  • Read customer reviews of the beds you like. Are they positive?
  • What will your requirements be in 5, 10, 15 years’ time? You want your adjustable bed to be long-lasting so it pays to get one that will meet your needs in the future.
  • What warranty does the bed you want come with? All CareCo beds come with a 12 months warranty as standard but some of our luxury range have as much as 5 years warranty!
