The name says it all – adjustable. Well, almost, but the point remains the same. The key element in all adjustable bases is just that – adjustability. You see, these bases provide additional features you simply don’t have with regular beds.

To go back a bit, adjustability is the most important feature. This means you can, in layman’s terms, change the shape of your bed base to your liking. By doing so, you can reap many benefits, from alleviating back pain to improving sleep and eliminating headaches, and many more according to the Stanford Center for Sleep Medicine.

Adjustability options

Perhaps you like sleeping with your head and torso elevated to a certain degree. No problem, grab a controller and adjust the head portion of the base. If, on the other hand, you like your legs to be raised, you can do that too, no sweat.

Adjustable beds come in different varieties and with numerous options in terms of the number of panels you can adjust, thus increasing customizability. So, depending on your sleeping needs and preferences, you can go with a model with different design features, and find one that is perfect for you at a mattress store in San Diego.

What is a split king adjustable bed?

If we wanted to be funny, we’d say it’s an adjustable bed for a split king mattress. And we wouldn’t be too far off the mark. However, there’s a little more to it, as split king mattresses are a somewhat different story when compared to regular mattresses.

Split king adjustable bed explained

With a split king, you actually get two separate “twin XL” mattresses, but on the same bed base. That means that you retain the large sleeping surface while keeping the option of having two completely different mattresses form a split king. This is a perfect option for partners with conflicting sleeping desires.

Enter the split king adjustable base. Now, a regular, uniform adjustable base wouldn’t work with a split king mattress. The fact that both twin XL mattresses would have to be adjusted to an identical sleeping position would defeat the purpose of a split king.

So, an adjustable base for a split king basically consists of two adjustable bases with two different mechanisms, allowing people to configure them independently and according to their sleeping preferences. This way, both the split king mattress and the adjustable base do what they’re designed to do – allow each sleeper to modify the sleeping surface as they see fit.
