Adjustable bed frames are now a trend that’s becoming more embraced in a younger crowd. While they have been around for quite some time mostly for medical reasons, the popularity amongst millennials is rapidly growing. Who are we kidding….adjustable bases are cool now. Being able to read in bed or use a laptop or sit up with a sports injury is actually really useful for people for reasons beyond medical. Being able to raise your leg in a knee injury or sit up due to acid reflux, most people have a legit need for one of these bases in their home.
