Adjustable beds are gaining popularity due to their comfort and sleep-enhancing features. However, their appearance may not always align with your preferred decor style. Fortunately, there are creative ways to hide an adjustable bed frame, allowing you to achieve both style and comfort. In this article, we will explore techniques on how to hide an adjustable bed frame.

Why Choose an Adjustable Bed?

Before diving into hiding techniques, let's briefly touch on why adjustable beds are worth considering. Adjustable beds offer unique benefits that traditional bed frames can't match. Some notable advantages include:

For example:

  • Zero gravity positioning –  Adjustable beds allow you to elevate your head and feet slightly above your heart, promoting back health and overall well-being. It also aids in post-workout recovery.
  • Custom settings – You can personalize the bed's positioning to suit your specific sleep needs. Individuals with sleep apnea or respiratory conditions may benefit from sleeping with their heads raised. Ergomotion's beds offer the convenience of saving and accessing your favorite positions with the touch of a button.
  • Reduced back pain – Selecting the right elevated setting on an adjustable bed can alleviate pressure on your back, potentially relieving pain.

Now, let's explore ways to hide your adjustable bed frame and seamlessly integrate it into your bedroom decor.

Put on a Bed Skirt

Adding a skirt is the most obvious solution for hiding any bed frame. It is an inexpensive touch that puts you in charge of color, pattern, and style. Stay away from the basic bed skirt, though. Chances are it will move around and end up stretched and unusable. Look for an adjustable bed skirt with a wrap-around design, Velcro or hook, and loop closures.

Cover It Up With Another Bed Frame

Consider using another, more visually appealing bed frame to surround the adjustable frame. The adjustable frame can provide support for the mattress, eliminating the need for removable planks.

Most adjustable bases are already designed with this in mind, but we recommend measuring before ordering to ensure the outer frame is slightly larger to accommodate the adjustable one.

Shift the Focus With a Distinctive Headboard

Room decor is about directing the eye, focusing on specific elements. You can use this concept to hide an adjustable bed frame. For example, attach a sharp-looking headboard to your adjustable bed, and no one will look at the frame. Their eye will go right to the headboard.

Most adjustable bed frames allow you to to attach a headboard using headboard brackets. You can also attach the headboard to the wall behind the bed or to another bed frame that goes around the adjustable one.

Add Something to the Foot

Create a distraction at the foot of the adjustable bed frame by placing an attractive piece of furniture, such as a decorative bench or chaise lounge at the end of the bed. Drawing the eye in that direction. 

Don’t Make the Bed the Center of the Room

Setting up your bedroom around your bed is common and makes it the focal point of the room. Instead of positioning the bed as the room's focal point, consider placing it to the side and highlighting other elements. You can center a couch near a TV or feature a shelf unit or desk as the main focus.

You can also just let your adjustable bed frame shine as it is. It will remind you of the choice you made to sleep better.
