Add an Adjustable Base to Your Existing Mattress

— by Sleep Outfitters on Apr 29, 2024

If you've been considering a power base for your bed but are hesitant to invest in a new mattress, you may be in luck. Tempur-Pedic® adjustable bases not only work seamlessly with most mattresses, particularly those made in the past five years, but they also enhance the performance of your bed. The ideal mattress for a base can flex and bend while maintaining its structural integrity. Typically, memory foam, latex, and hybrids fit the bill, with foam mattresses being the most adaptable for a power base due to their flexibility.

Memory Foam

Memory foam mattresses, known for their exceptional pressure and pain relief, are a perfect match for adjustable bases. As you sleep, the memory foam contours to your body's shape, distributing your weight evenly across the bed's surface. This lack of rigid structure allows the mattress to flex and bend with ease on an adjustable base, promising truly personalized sleep that you won't find with a traditional bed setup.

Latex Mattresses

Latex mattresses are also made of foam but have a distinct feel that offers a unique sleep experience. Customers often describe these beds as more "buoyant" than memory foam. For a latex model, the thinner the mattress, the more easily it can bend with your base. Depending on your preference, there are natural and synthetic options available.

Hybrid Mattresses

Hybrid mattresses are a mix of memory foam and innerspring. Older models used metal coils for the "springs" and are unsuitable for bases as they don't bend easily and can create pressure points. A hybrid mattress with encased coils made from flexible material can be used more easily on an adjustable base. To ensure compatibility, we recommend checking with your manufacturer to determine if your hybrid mattress is suitable for use with power bases.

Every current mattress sold in-store and online by Sleep Outfitters can be paired with an adjustable base, giving you the power to customize your sleep experience.
