Air mattresses and air beds are a great way to improve your sleep experience and the convenience for you and your partner is undeniable. One of the most prominent features that makes these products special is the ability to adjust the firmness and the comfort level. The following will discuss how to use air mattresses and air beds and the various ways in which you can choose to make them more convenient for you and your partner to use.

Adjustable Air Mattress

Adjustable air mattresses combine the convenience of a gel memory foam mattress with the adjustability of an air bed. The gel memory foam layer is ideal for providing support and comfort to the sleeper while increasing the motion isolation. This allows you to get a better night’s sleep while avoiding the uncomfortable motion of a traditional air mattress. You can either purchase a pre-configured adjustable air bed or you can do it yourself with a little bit of DIYing (do it yourself).

To set up an adjustable air mattress, simply follow these easy steps:

  • Take the mattress out of the box and disconnect the pump. There should be a tube at the base of the mattress that you should remove as well. You should also remove the plastic covering that the mattress came in. Once the pump and the tube are disconnected, you can inflate the mattress with the valve. Wait about 10 minutes for the mattress to reach its full potential and then you can place the pillow and the two sheets that came with the mattress on top of it. Finally, cover with the quilt and you’re all set!
  • If you prefer a more classic look, you can buy a ready-made adjustable air mattress that already has the gel memory foam mattress in it. This type of mattress takes the stress out of the setup process and you can simply follow the instructions that came with it to inflate and deflate it properly. Adjustable air mattresses are available in many sizes and you should find one that suits both your needs. The one that I linked to is a standard king size that can be used by anyone and it also has a gel memory foam mattress with a thick layer of comfort foam on top of it. This type of mattress suits everyone’s needs and it can be moved and adjusted as needed. If you’re looking for a more traditional look, this is the perfect option for you.
  • An adjustable air mattress has several advantages over a regular air mattress. It takes the stress out of adjusting the height and the firmness of the mattress to suit your sleeping styles. It also adds a layer of comfort and support to your bed that makes the whole experience more relaxing. Most importantly, it allows for easy movement in and out of bed which makes moving from the couch to the bedroom a lot less disorienting as you know where everything is. This especially benefits sleepers with disabilities who have trouble staying put in bed because it’s too soft or too firm. With an adjustable air mattress, they can still enjoy the benefits of a soft bed without having to worry about it constantly moving under them as they sleep.

Convertible Air Bed

Convertible air beds are designed to be used either as a traditional air mattress or as an air bed. When used as a traditional mattress, the coil unit at the base is raised to create a flat surface and two inflatable layers are attached to the base to create a water-tight seal. The mattress then can be inflated via an air pump located elsewhere on the bed frame. When the mattress is fully inflated, it can be firmly secured in place with straps or bunted together at the corners to prevent movement.

The main advantage of a convertible air bed is the ability to use it as an air bed. When used in this way, the two inflatable layers are detached from the base and then folded or rolled up at the corners to create a smaller footprint on the floor. This makes it easier to store and move around the home as needed. Some convertible air beds also have an additional inflatable pocket at the head of the bed that serves as a second pillow. This makes it easier for partners who need to switch positions in the middle of the night or who like to cuddle during the night’s sleep.

To use a convertible air bed as an air mattress, you simply need to press the button located at the base of the bed frame and the two inflatable layers will unfold or inflate while you sleep. This type of bed is more expensive to purchase but the convenience and the time saved by not having to pump and adjust the mattress manually is worth it. You can also buy a ready-made convertible air mattress if you prefer to purchase something that already has everything done for you. These types of beds are built with a gel memory foam mattress and the two inflatable layers but they might not have the same look as the one you would get from DIYing. Nonetheless, they’re easy to use and they offer a lot of value for the money.

Hybrid Air Mattress

A hybrid air mattress is a standard air mattress with an additional inflatable layer built into the mattress. This additional layer is generally composed of a gel memory foam and a series of interconnected tubes that provide support for the sleeper. The gel memory foam layer serves as an ideal middle layer that provides support and comfort to the sleeper while increasing the motion isolation. The interconnected tubes make up the network of this mattress and it looks like a combination of a gel memory foam mattress and a standard air mattress. This type of air mattress also inflates with the push of a button and it has a built-in pump for convenience. This particular type of air mattress is great because it provides the benefits of both a gel memory foam mattress and a standard air mattress. It also has a small tube built into the mattress that is attached to an even smaller tube located at the base. This tube at the base can be used to manually inflate and deflate the mattress as needed.

As you can see, there are many different types of mattresses and air beds available and it might be a little overwhelming to know which one to purchase. Do you need a firm mattress that will stay put when they lay down on it? Is a gel memory foam mattress the best choice for your personal preferences?
