The Benefits of Having an Adjustable Base

An adjustable foundation can be a great addition to your bed. It can enhance the comfort that you get from your mattress by allowing you to sleep in more comfortable positions. This is particularly good for people who are bedridden or are recuperating and on bed rest. It allows you to move the bed into a position that's more comfortable, promotes blood flow, and makes living life a little easier. The Malouf Structures E455 power foundation comes with so many features that you'll experience higher quality sleep.

About Malouf

Sam and Kacie Malouf transformed a two-person operation into a company with over 11,000 product choices. In their journey, Sam and Kacie found a common thread tying consumers together—desire for comfort, identity, and value.

They’ve explored the globe, hunting for artisanal bedding honed through generations of practice in Italy, France, and Egypt. They’ve refined modern products, infusing unique foams with natural materials, and improving the features and usability of adjustable bed bases. The result is an ode to time-tested materials fused with the freshness of cutting-edge technologies.

Conclusion

The E455 Adjustable Base is the third Structures model of six by Malouf. It's the first higher-end model to offer a pairing cable which means you can get this in Split King or Split Cal King sizes. It has a good amount of luxury features like the two higher-end models in the Structures collection. This base is representative of luxury benefits without a luxury price.

One great feature of this base is that it's easy to set-up. You get it delivered to your house by UPS and can have it up and running in 15 minutes or less. It's a very durable base with a weight capacity of 750 lbs. as well. I really like the Zero Gravity position on the remote. This position was developed by NASA as the ideal position for good blood flow and comfort for their astronauts.

If you like higher-end adjustable bases but don't like higher prices the E455 is a great choice. It's over $1,000 less than the top-end S755 model and it still has premium features. I recommend this base to the shopper who is looking for a replacement base for their older one. This is a great choice for a second-generation adjustable for your bedroom.
