Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base Review
Getting a good night’s sleep doesn’t necessarily stop once you’ve found the right mattress for your needs and sleep preferences. Depending on your health needs or lifestyle preferences, the bed foundation you choose can also make a considerable difference.
Adjustable bases are gaining popularity among people of all ages as manufacturers continue to bring innovations to the adjustable base industry and provide consumers with new ways to get enough of a good night’s sleep and relaxation they need.
Although adjustable bases have their roots in the medical market, today they are far from their beginnings and they come in modern designs and offer a large number of features.
While you may not have considered getting one in the past, their growing popularity and many benefits that they offer might make you reconsider.
There are many new online mattress companies that sell a great variety of these adjustable bases and the one we’ll be reviewing today comes from Tempur-Pedic online mattress company.
Tempur-Pedic is one of the leading manufacturers and distributors of mattresses and pillows made from their proprietary memory foam.
Although Tempur was originally based on NASA’s research program aimed at improving crash protection for airplane passengers and developing a material to cushion aircraft seats, provide comfort during long flights and protection in the event of an accident, it managed to develop and create a wide range of sleep products based on that material and today it has such position on the market that is hard to beat.
Among quality mattresses and pillows, the company also offers amazing adjustable bases that come with many features such as the Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base that we’ll be reviewing today.
This base is one of the newest motorized bases available online. It offers some of the features that most adjustable bases have such as remote controlled setting, a great balance and whisper-quiet motor.
It also offers some high-tech features that really appealed to us as a couple and that are unlike those offered by other similar adjustable bases.

Construction / Design
Tempur-Pedic, unlike other companies, don’t share a lot of information about their technology. They consider it proprietary information, so there are not many details about the materials they use for the construction of their mattresses, pillows and adjustable bases.
But, what we could see is that the Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base is made of a durable frame with an upholstery finish and standard four legs that come with the base (6 legs included with King/Cal King).
It also comes with retainer bars that prevent the mattress from sliding off the base, and has a lift capacity of 275 lbs per person with the weight evenly distributed across the head and foot sections. The base is not designed to lift this amount of weight in the head or foot sections alone.
The Tempur-Ergo base has a slim design and is wrapped in an extremely soft, highest-quality cover. It fits easily inside bed frames, furniture beds and platform beds that are certified to hold a minimum of 900 pounds.
The base also comes with powerful but quiet electric motors which allow seamless changing of positions which is especially appealing to those sharing their bed with a partner.
The Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base can work perfectly well with the mattress you have at your home, provided it is flexible enough to do a little bit of bending, but usually all the beds that come compressed in a box can fit the adjustable base.
All of the functions of this adjustable base can be accessed and controlled via the wireless TEMPUR-Ergo remote that comes with the base and all the buttons are simple to understand.
The Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base comes neatly packed in a box. All you need to do to fully set it up is to get it out of the packaging, turn it upside down, 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.
The base comes with the instruction manual which makes the setup process pretty simple and it took us less than 15 minutes to fully assemble the base. The manual is also available for download on the company’s website.
The company offers White Glove delivery service which means that if you don’t want to set up the base by yourself, the delivery men will do that for you.
The Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base is available in both split and single options, and they can perfectly fit a great variety of mattress sizes though they are purposefully built to have slightly smaller dimensions than the mattresses they are supposed to support to ensure compatibility with bedroom furniture.
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, we used a single base (Queen size) which worked perfectly well with any mattress we tried with it, and it proved to be a really good choice for us as a couple.
We are satisfied with its overall comfort and support and how silently it moved when we wanted to change positions during the night though we were forced to make certain compromises as we couldn’t adjust positions to our liking separately.
We are primarily side sleepers and it worked perfectly for us when when sleeping on our sides and 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 base provides excellent support for both the mattress and sleepers above regardless of the position to which it is adjusted. It is quiet and and allows seamless changing of positions.
It doesn’t shake when adjusting it to other positions so you won’t feel any disruption in your sleep.
The Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base is a great base that comes with many extraordinary features that will give you a complete control over your rest and sleep.
It comes with almost unlimited number of ergonomic rest positions, rejuvenating massage options and a wireless remote that will let you access all functions and fully customize your sleep.
It offers several options to lift your head up to 57 degrees and feet up to 46 degrees to create a comfortable position for watching television or reading and relaxing all at the push of a button on your remote, and regardless of the position you choose, you’ll feel amazing comfort and support.
The base comes with QuietMode setting that allows you to gently tilt your mattress to an anti-snore position, a Zero Gravity preset which simulates weightlessness and helps take pressure off your back by perfectly elevating your head and feet, underbed light and and an easy to reach USB port on the side of the base.
Besides this, the adjustable base also comes with massage motors which offer several massage programs and like the elevation, these are controlled by the wireless digital remote which can be used even in the dark thanks to its back lit buttons.
Price / Warranty
The Tempur-Ergo Adjustable Base may seem to be a bit pricey with the Queen version coming in at $1299, but this is quite a reasonable price given the quality construction, modern design of this adjustable base and many features that it offers.
|King (split two pieces)||$2398|
