The solution: The Reverie 8Q Power Foundation, a custom adjustable bed frame that allows the head, feet and knees to be positioned in virtually any angle for maximum comfort.

What Kind of Adjustable Bed is the Reverie 8Q?

The Reverie 8Q is an electrically powered adjustable bed frame. The head, feet and knees can be positioned independently so the user can find the proper sleep position.

People who enjoy reading, watching television, surfing the internet or other activities in bed will also love the 8Q to find that perfectly comfortable and relaxing position.

How Firm is the Reverie 8Q?

REverie 8Q Power Foundation being usedAs a bed foundation, the Reverie 8Q is very firm and this reflects the level of construction necessary to move a mattress and the body weight of the users to various positions.

Since the 8Q is a solid foundation, this will mean the mattress will perform as designed because a very firm foundation that has excellent support actually means the mattress will work as designed.

Soft and supportive mattresses will be even more supportive with a firm foundation because the internal springs of the mattress have the proper support to operate.

Many bed foundations are simply constructed inadequately and do not provide a surface for the springs to rest on, which means the mattress loses its designed level of comfort.

The Reverie 8Q’s firmness will mean users can finally get the comfort and performance they expect from their mattress.

Does the Reverie 8Q Provide Good Motion Isolation?

The 8Q provides a level of motion isolation that is far superior to a traditional box spring or steel frame or wooden frame foundation. It features individual steel cross slats closely positioned next to each other for optimal mattress support.

The steel cross slats are bolted to the outside of the frame and coated black for a sophisticated look. The motor mechanisms are securely fastened to the frame and use quiet roller bearings, which allows for the foundation to move without disturbing a sleeping partner.

Does this Adjustable Bed Come in Split and Single Foundations? Why is this Important?

The 8Q is available in both split and single foundations for a variety of mattress sizes. A split adjustable foundation is important for users sleeping with partners as an individual’s personal sleep position preference typically differs from their partners.

A person who likes to sleep with their head angled up or with their legs elevated might have a partner with different desired sleep position, which would make the foundation a burden for both. The 8Q split foundation allows for each person to select their own sleep position without disturbing the other.

The foundation can be moved silently and without disturbing a partner, a tremendous benefit for people who like to change positions throughout the night.
