How to Hide an Adjustable Bed Frame (and Make it Pretty!)


Hide an adjustable bed frame

Your bedroom should be your place of respite, where you unwind, relax, and give your body the rest you need. You want to have a bedroom that makes this possible by being cool, dark, and quiet. Your bedroom isn’t all function, though. You also want a room you think is pretty. After all, this is your bedroom not a hospital room. We want you to absolutely love the bed you sleep in. 

For many, this means sleeping on an adjustable bed base. As great as these adjustable foundations are, some people feel they don’t look “pretty” as we noted in our Adjustable bed FAQ article. If this is what’s holding you back from the great bed you really want and need, allow us to help. We’re here to tell you how to hide an adjustable bed frame.

The Benefits of Sleeping on an Adjustable Bed Base

Something so new and exciting comes with a lot of questions, but there is no question about what a customized sleep can do for you and your health. Before we get into things like how to keep sheets on an adjustable bed or even how to hide an adjustable bed frame, let’s first discuss why sleeping on an adjustable bed base is such a good idea. There are numerous health and lifestyle benefits. Did you know that sleeping with your torso raised is a great way to eliminate snoring? Sleeping with your legs raised helps combat Restless Legs Syndrome and other circulatory problems. You could raise both your head and your legs, known as sleeping in Zero Gravity, which is great for reducing the pressure on sore joints and bones.

It’s not just about alleviating uncomfortable and potentially dangerous health conditions. Some people choose to buy an adjustable bed base simply because they are so convenient and comfortable. Watching television or reading in bed is made much easier when your bed props you up. Raising your torso is only the beginning! Our top models have many other functionalities, like a massage, sleep timer, gentle alarm to wake you up in the morning, and more.

How to Decorate an Adjustable Bed

Wouldn’t it be great to have a bed that functions like an adjustable foundation but looks like a “regular” bed? In fact, this is possible! What you’re going to want to do is buy a new panel bed. A panel bed is any bed frame with a headboard, a base, and two side panels. In other words, a panel bed is a bed with a four-wall frame. Often, they have wooden slats connecting the two side pieces. 

City Mattress has a renowned delivery team that does a lot more than just drop off your items and leave. They can remove these wooden slats and slide your adjustable base into the “four walls” of your bed. You won’t be able to tell it’s an adjustable foundation by looking at it. This is the best way to have the comfort and health you need, with the style you want.

Our Favorite Panel Beds

We have everything you need to complete your entire bedroom, including the bed itself. We have dozens upon dozens of new beds and headboards, including many panel beds. Not only do panel beds have enough height for under-bed storage, but many designs actually come with built-in drawers. These are a few of our favorites:
