One of the questions we often get at Wildwood TV Lift Furniture is whether a TV bed will work with an adjustable base. The answer to this question is yes! In fact, an adjustable base is an ideal companion to the TV bed as it provides the flexibility to adjust your viewing position to the best possible angle. TV beds are already the best option out there if you value a comfortable TV viewing experience, and a TV bed along with an adjustable base just makes things that much better!
How an adjustable base works with the bed design
A Wildwood TV bed follows a simple design which allows it to work in a variety of settings and with a variety of bed frame, platform, and mattress sizes. This simple design includes a headboard, footboard, and two side rails. These components are positioned around the existing bed frame without any need to anchor to the frame. This standalone capability is what allows the adjustable bed to function normally within the TV bed design.
If you don’t already have an adjustable base, the easiest way to get started is to purchase the base through Wildwood at the same time that you purchase your TV bed. Our adjustable base is upholstered and modern, has three preset positions, a wireless remote, and it will integrate seamlessly with any Wildwood TV Bed. Take a look at our adjustable bases.
Do adjustable bases work with captain’s beds?
The next question to consider while on this topic is whether an adjustable base will work with a captain’s bed. In some cases, the answer to this question is also yes. Captain’s beds are built using high quality construction materials which allows them to support a lot of weight. Because of this, a captain’s bed can support most adjustable bed options without modification. However, as there are many adjustable beds on the market today with a variety of product specs, we recommend purchasing one of Wildwood’s adjustable bases to ensure that it will work.
The adjustable bases that we offer at Wildwood TV Lift Furniture provide a zero-clearance design, which means that you can place the adjustable frame directly on the captain’s bed without the adjustable bed legs and it will work. If you have an adjustable base that you are considering using in a captain’s TV bed, check whether your adjustable base has zero-clearance. If not, your mattress would sit very high off of the ground once you place your adjustable base on the captain’s bed platform.
Does it matter which mechanism I purchase when using an adjustable base?
Wildwood TV Lift furniture did extensive research into the TV lift market before selecting a TV lift mechanism that works seamlessly with a TV bed. To keep things simple, Wildwood offers two mechanisms to customers: a standard mechanism, and a deluxe mechanism.
What’s the difference between the two mechanisms?
The two big differences are the maximum TV size and the travel distance. A standard mechanism can handle TVs up to 47” wide while a deluxe mechanism can handle TVs up to 65” wide. Because the distance between your eyes and the TV tends to be a little shorter in a TV bed, most customers find a 47” TV to be a comfortable size. However, if you’re looking to not only maximize the comfort of your TV viewing experience, but to also bring a home theater-type feel to the experience, then the deluxe mechanism will be a great option. The other primary difference between the two mechanisms is the travel distance, or the distance from the lowest point to the highest point of the lift stroke. A standard mechanism has a travel distance of 27” and a deluxe mechanism has a travel distance of 39”. For most normal beds, a standard mechanism will provide plenty height for viewing comfort. However, if you are planning on putting an adjustable base on top of a captain’s bed, then the additional travel of a deluxe mechanism will ensure that nothing (feet, bedding, etc.) blocks the bottom of the screen.
