Serta Simplicity HFM adjustable base

Overview of the Simplicity HFM Adjustable Bed

Serta's Simplicity HFM is a feature-focused adjustable base with high value. That's why it was rated our best value base of the year. It has all the essential features plus a few more so that you can find the exact position that suits you and enjoy the many benefits packed into this base. It's their mid-range offering at $999 and is an upgrade from the previous mid-range Serta adjustable base, the Motion Essentials model. It now includes both USB-A and USB-C ports, a higher weight capacity, dual massage with wave technology, and more.

Pros and Cons

  • Features the latest technology, including two types of USB ports
  • Updated massage feature
  • Very durable, weight rated up to 850 lbs.
  • More affordable than premium adjustable bases
  • Serta is a trusted brand
  • Power bases are always very heavy due to their construction, use caution when moving or setting up your base
  • Fewer premium features than the Motion Perfect


The Simplicity HFM adjustable frame takes your mattress to the next level. Being able to move the bed into the perfect position for you, and readjust as your preferences change makes it much more adaptable to your life. You can save your favorite positions on the remote so that it only takes the click of a button to get exactly where you want to be.

The dual massage with wave technology feature brings you a relaxing option if you want to soothe some sore muscles or use it to help you fall asleep.

You won't have to worry about stumbling through the dark when you have to go to the bathroom at night, as there is a remote flashlight and under-bed lighting. 

Many people with health issues find comfort in certain sleeping positions, which are much easier to get to when using an adjustable bed. It can help with sleep apnea and snoring, acid reflux, back pain, and more.

Serta's Simplicity HFM adjustable base is a great mid-range option with a few luxury features and a durable weight capacity of 850 lbs. With some higher-end features like dual massage with wave technology and dual USB ports (type A and C), it's a fantastic option for those looking to spend around $1,000. It is a good middle ground between the entry-level position and the more expensive luxury bases.

Serta is a well-known and trusted brand, and they back up their quality with a good 10-year warranty. You'll get free delivery, so the process is super easy. I would recommend the Serta Simplicity HFM to anyone looking to get more out of their mattress.
