Construction / Design
The Puffy Adjustable Base is compatible with any open cavity bed. It can perform either with or without foundations or box springs and work with any mattress designed to fit an adjustable base, whether it be innerspring, memory foam, latex, or hybrid, but especially with the Puffy mattresses. (Read our Puffy and Puffy Lux mattress reviews.)
The Puffy Adjustable Base is made of a durable metal construction with six legs and a platform wrapped in a soft fabric that gives it a nice look and feel. There is also a layer of poly foam around the edges which helps avoid painful bumps when getting in and out of bed.
The legs of the base are adjustable as well which gives you the option to adjust the height of your base in a range from 4, 6.5 to 9.5 inches.
The frame itself is sturdy and durable, designed to provide necessary support to both the mattress and sleepers above. It is equipped with quality motors that operate independently of each other and are controlled via a wireless remote.
The wireless remote is battery powered. It is easy to be used and allows you to lift the head or feet area, select how far up or down you want to go and control your comfort without the mess of wires.
The base is also equipped with 3-speed, dual independent massage motors and two USB ports which give you the possibility to charge your tablet, phone, or any other portable device.
Besides this, there is a large metal retainer bar at the bottom of the platform that goes at the foot of the mattress and which helps keep the mattress in place while adjusting the base.
The Puffy Adjustable Base is delivered right to your doorstep and all you have to do to set it up is to take it inside, unpack it, attach the motor to the base, plug the cables to the power supply, screw in the legs, turn it over, and plug it into the wall to operate.
A few steps is all it takes to set up your Puffy base. You won’t need the help of handymen or any special tools, and the whole process of assembling the base will take you less than a few minutes. Once the assembly is done, you can start enjoying your new customizable comfort.
The Puffy Adjustable Base is available in both split and single options and they can perfectly fit a great variety of mattress sizes.
A split adjustable base may be an excellent solution for those who share their bed with a partner with different needs and sleep preferences as it allows for each person to select their own sleep position without disturbing the other, and it also eliminates any motion transfer between the partners.
This time, however, we used a single base (Queen size) and it worked perfectly well with our Puffy mattress. We are satisfied with its overall comfort and support and how silently it moved when we wanted to change position.
This single base required some compromises as we couldn’t adjust positions to our liking separately, but we are primarily side sleepers and it worked perfectly for us when when sleeping on our sides. We felt our hips and shoulders to be properly cradled and supported. As for other positions, we didn’t feel any discomfort while sleeping or relaxing in other positions as well and didn’t feel our spines to be out of alignment.
The Puffy Adjustable base comes with many features from ordinary head and foot incline and various massage options, to a zero gravity positioning, built-in nightlight and USB plugs.
All the features can be accessed and controlled via a wireless remote control that comes with the base. It allows you control your comfort without the mess of wires and adjust the base to the desired position in less than a minute.
There are two motors that operate independently and give you the possibility to pick any position. So they allow you to raise the base and lift your back to approximately sixty five degrees which is perfect for reading, watching television or just lounging.
The base can also elevate your legs up to forty five degrees to reduce pain in your lower back, improve blood flow and help you solve the problem with swollen feet and even high blood pressure.
Besides these ordinary functions, the Puffy base offers zero-gravity positioning as well which arranges the bed to slightly raise your legs and back to make you feel like you are floating. With a single press of a button, your back will be raised to 10 degrees while your legs will be raised up to 30 degrees. This position helps relieve pressure on your body, improves blood flow and stimulates relaxation and rejuvenation.
To relax even more and get rid of tension and pain in your muscles, you can choose one of the massage options that the Puffy base offers.There are 3-speed, dual independent massage motors built into the base which send vibrations into your mattress to gently massage either your upper of lower body and help you relax and lull you into a sleep.
Besides this, the Puffy Adjustable Base comes with some additional high-tech features such as dual USB charging ports and LED lighting. There are two USB ports on the right side of the base that give you the possibility to charge your smartphone, tablet or any other portable device and have them near you in case you need them.
By pressing a button on your wireless remote, you’ll activate a soft-white indirect light to help you find your way to the bathroom or other parts of your home easier during the night or early in the morning without hurting your eyes or bothering your partner.

What most impressed us is that this adjustable base, just like the Nectar adjustable base we have recently reviewed, has a guarantee.
