There’s no relationship in your life quite like your relationship with your bed. You spend close to a third of your life lying in it, and a lot of that time is spent in sweet sleep—no wonder we all demand so much from these squishy rectangles.

When you have a great bed, it really is a gift that you experience daily, whether it’s coming home after a long day of work and dropping face down on the bed, or snuggling into the blankets for just a few more minutes in the morning.

But when your bed doesn't meet all of your needs, the disappointment is nightly. Make sure you’re not settling for a letdown—here are three ways your bed might be falling short of what a great bed should be.

1. Your bed should be flexible, and it’s not.

The best beds today give you the chance to adjust them exactly how you like them, making them great places not just for sleep but for, well, anything. Sure, we might be a little biased, but we think a great bed gives you the ability to raise your head so you can watch the game or read that book everyone’s been talking about, or lift at the foot so you can literally kick your feet up—all features that come standard with an adjustable base.

But did you know that when you’re stressed out or sore, your bed could also give you a deep massage on different levels, from your head to your toes? And at night when your partner’s snoring, your bed could even raise their head and help free up their airways, no pillow-throwing or passive-agressive tossing and turning required. If you’re lucky enough to own a Reverie®️ Sleep System, you already know that your bed can do all this and more.

2. Your bed should be supportive, and it’s not.

Living with a less-than-perfect bed can leave you feeling a little bit like Goldilocks. You might be stuck in a bed that’s too soft, where it feels like you’re sinking into quicksand, or a bed that’s too hard, which feels like trying to sleep on a boulder.

In order to get that “just right” feeling, your bed needs to be made of the right stuff, and not those poking, unyielding springs. A truly perfect bed would come with a customizable cushioning where you yourself could make it as firm or as soft as you want—which is precisely what we offer in Reverie mattresses, thanks to our patented Dream Cell®️ technology.

3. Your bed should be smart, and it’s not.

You expect almost every product in your house to be smart—why not your bed too? If you’re looking to upgrade to an adjustable bed, make sure that you’re getting a bed with all of the latest features, like Reverie’s new Bluetooth® voice compatibility feature which allows you to control your bed’s position simply from your voice, using the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The more convenience that's built into your bed, the better, because if there’s one thing that should be easy, it’s getting comfy in bed at the end of a long day.

A better bed = better sleep

Being disappointed by your bed can mean a lot more than just being uncomfortable—it can also mean that your sleep quality is suffering, and poor sleep quality is nothing to take lightly. Missing out on the restorative benefits of sleep due to discomfort over time can lead to serious health problems down the line.
