You have to fight the “Will an adjustable bed help with my back pain?” goblin, you have to slay the “Are adjustable beds really that effective?” orc, and you have to solve the “Is an adjustable bed worth the money?” riddle.

And, on top of it all, you have to fell the “best adjustable base compatible mattress for my bed” final boss. Woah, what a journey, right? Well, for all those looking for their mattress of gold in San Diego, here’s some help.

Can a hybrid mattress be used on an adjustable bedDo you need a special mattress for an adjustable base?

If we were to say that you need a special mattress for your adjustable base, we would be lying. Who says your old innerspring mattress can’t go on an adjustable base, provided it’s the right size and shape. If it fits, you can use it.

However, if we’re going to continue in the tone of honesty, which we always do, we have to tell you a couple of things more. While you can use pretty much any mattress on an adjustable base, the problem is that you won’t be able to reap all the benefits of adjustable bases with just any mattress.

It’s not like the American Academy of Sleep Medicine prescribes the ultimate mattress type to be used with an adjustable bases, but, when you think about it, can a traditional innerspring really bend to the base adequately?

Will a regular mattress work on an adjustable bed?

It all depends on what a regular mattress is for you. For some, a regular mattress is a latex mattress, for others, it’s a memory foam mattress. But, the most common mattresses in San Diego are still innerspring mattresses, so we’re going to use them as our starting point.

Although some innerspring mattresses can work fairly well with adjustable bases, the majority of them simply can’t, and this is for several reasons.

  1. Coil type – The coils in your mattress determine whether it can work with an adjustable base. For example, interlocking coils can get tangled when you change the shape of your bed while some mattresses have border wires that simply don’t allow for the mattress to change its shape.
  2. Thickness – If your innerspring mattress is overly thick, it probably does provide more sleeping comfort, but it’s not suitable as a companion to an adjustable base.
  3. Firmness – The firmer the mattress, the less likely it will be able to bend to different positions your adjustable base offers.

So, inspect your mattress thoroughly and see if it could work with an adjustable base. But, as a rule of thumb, innerspring mattresses are rarely the right choice for adjustable bases.

Now we’re talking! Some consider memory foam mattresses the perfect choice for adjustable bases, but we disagree. Yes, memory foam is highly malleable, soft and plush, and it can change its shape and structure in a matter of seconds.

But, memory foam also carries certain downsides – it can be too soft for adjustable bases, eliminating the perks of certain positions, and it’s less durable than other mattress types. That is why our choice of mattress for an adjustable base is always a hybrid mattress.

These mattresses take all the benefits of different types of mattresses, and combine them into a single incredible mattress. They provide the strength of coils, the buoyancy of latex, and an increased durability when coupled with adjustable bases. So yes, you can certainly use a hybrid mattress with an adjustable base.
