What Type of Mattress Goes Best With an Adjustable Base?

Finding a perfect mattress for an adjustable base can be a long search indeed. It seems as though you’ve just learned about the benefits of split king mattresses, what sheets to use on split kings, and how sturdy adjustable bases are, and now you have to look into another matter.

Well, you have to know that not every type of mattress will work well with your adjustable base, and it is even more difficult to find a mattress for your split king adjustable base. However, it is far from impossible, which we’re going to show you right now!

Will any mattress work with an adjustable base?

Theoretically, yes, all mattresses can work with adjustable bases. Be it a memory foam, latex, innerspring or air mattress, you can place any mattress on an adjustable base and it will work.

However, not every mattress type is equal when it comes to using it on an adjustable bed. Some mattresses have such a construction that they are more rigid by default, and a rigid mattress will not work as well with an adjustable base as some other types will. So, let’s see how different mattress types get along with adjustable bases.

  1. Memory foam mattress – Memory foam is an excellent choice for adjustable beds. Memory foam can flex easily, and that means that this type of mattress can assume any position without losing any of its signature benefits.
  2. Latex mattress – Similar to memory foam, a latex mattress can also flex rather easily, especially its thinner variants. Plus, latex foam is extremely durable, which means that the changes in shape will not affect its longevity.
  3. Air mattress – These mattresses consist of encased air chambers surrounded by either foam or padding. They do sound like a good choice for an adjustable base because air is air, right? But, changing the shape of an air mattress with an adjustable base can impede airflow, reducing the benefits you bought it for in the first place.
  4. Innerspring mattress – Although any mattress, including innerspring mattresses, can theoretically work with an adjustable base, we have to say that a traditional innerspring mattress may not be the best choice. They’re too rigid for an adjustable base, and the benefits you’d normally get from them would be greatly diminished.

Do hybrid mattresses work with adjustable bases?

Not only do hybrid mattresses work well with adjustable bases, but they’re also one of the best choices when it comes to choosing a type of mattress for an adjustable base. And you don’t need to consult the Stanford Center for Sleep Medicine to confirm this. 

Hybrid mattresses combine the best of both worlds – they have innersprings that are pocketed individually, and several layers of memory foam on top that, when combined with the springs, make for a luxurious sleeping experience.

Couple that with an adjustable base that allows you to find the perfect sleeping position for you, and you can imagine the quality of sleep you’re about to get. Just make sure to choose a good hybrid mattress, and you’ll have no worries!
