Zero Clearance Adjustable Bed - A Sleep Revolution in Your Home

Zero Clearance Adjustable Bed - A Sleep Revolution in Your Home

If you're like most people, you've probably never heard of a zero-clearance adjustable bed before. But, boy—are you going to be glad you did!

You may have heard of a zero-clearance adjustable base before, but maybe you don't know exactly what it means.

Zero clearance means that your adjustable base will rest flat on the existing bed frame or platform bed. In the case of a bed frame, all you have to do is remove the box spring from off the slats and fit the adjustable bed base snugly in its place. 

With a Platform bed, all that is needed is to place the adjustable bed on the flat platform surface. As with all adjustable beds, they’ll fit neatly inside existing headboards, footboards, and side rails, provided you’ve matched the bed sizes (e.g., a queen frame with a queen adjustable base).

Non-zero clearance means that you need some free space below the adjustable base. This type can’t sit flat on the panels because of the bed frame’s legs. To fit a non-zero clearance adjustable bed into a panel frame, you’re going to have to remove the frame’s slats to allow the mechanism to run smoothly. This isn’t terribly difficult—it might only require a screwdriver or a socket wrench.

Adjustable beds with Zero Clearance are life-changing.

They can help you get a better night's rest, relieve pain and stiffness, and improve your overall health. If you're looking for the best adjustable bed, we've got you covered with our top recommendations.


Recommendation no. 1 - Malouf S755 Smart Adjustable Bed

The pinnacle of relaxation and luxury, the Structures™ S755 Adjustable Bed Base gives you everything you need for a great night’s sleep. The S755 base has 5 preset positions (Zero Gravity, Anti-Snore, Lounge, TV, and Flat) and 6 programmable positions that can be customized and saved to match your personal preference. Finally, the sleek linen-inspired upholstered frame in Stone looks great on its own or fits into most existing bed frames. Since it’s true zero clearance, it can sit directly on foundations, platform bases, slat beds, or the ground.

Recommendation no. 2 - Ergomotion 2.0 & 2.5

 Ergomotion's Quest 2.5 adjustable base gives you everything you want but is still compact, versatile, and affordable. It's not too big and it's not too small—it's just right! It adds programmable presets, underbed lighting, dual USB ports, and even Ergomotion's voice-activated Hello Ergo system. In other words: this base can turn your bedroom into a work-from-home office and a get-away-from-work retreat. Start your day with meditation, then end it with a relaxing, zero-gravity experience. The Quest 2.5 lets you do it all!

Recommendation no. 3 - Sealy Ease 4.0

The EASE® power base is the ultimate in comfort and flexibility. With nearly unlimited adjustable ergonomic positions for sleeping, sitting, reading, working, or watching TV, it's easy to find your perfect position. And with the wireless remote, you can adjust the height of your bed at the touch of a button. The all-new compact design is smaller and thinner than ever before—perfect for fitting seamlessly into your existing bed frame. Plus, adjustable legs allow you to change the height of the base to fit your bed frame, your preferred height, or remove them completely for a low profile. The new version also includes a new feature called Zero Clearance that allows the base to easily fit inside platform beds for a sleek modern bedroom design!

When looking at adjustable beds with zero clearance, the Legget & Platt Prodigy CE and Malouf S755 stand at the top. Both products have the same features, but when compared side-by-side, the Malouf S755 beats out the Prodigy CE by a slight margin in terms of comfort level. Quest 2.5 and Ease 4.0 are also great choices. Hopefully, this article will help you on your quest for the best adjustable bed, and you should now be better equipped to make a decision about them!
