Are All Bed Sheets Compatible with Adjustable Beds?

Bed sheets


In theory, most regular bed sheets can be placed on adjustable beds for use, however, their convenience, longevity, and ease of use will depend on user handling and adjustable bed use case. The common types of bed sheets found for standard beds are:

  • Flat sheets – Sheets of fabric that have a simple rectangular design. The convenience of flat sheets are that they require less effort to remove for washing and have a simpler design for easy storage.
  • Fitted sheets – Sheets of fabric with deep pockets and elastics around their edges. Fitted sheets offer the benefit of staying in place more securely due to their deep pockets and elastics.

Between these two options, fitted sheets are the better-suited sheets for an adjustable bed. As you raise and lower the head or feet of adjustable beds while using flat sheets, your body weight will remain loaded around the center of the bed sheet while the edges have no load being applied to keep them in place. Since nothing is assisting the flat sheets to stay tucked underneath the mattress, their edges tend to fall off easily. The best fitted sheets for adjustable beds would have deep pockets for more surface area to stay tucked underneath a mattress while their elastic tension help to keep them in place. This also makes fitted sheets a better option for users who toss and turns while sleeping.


Choosing the Best Sheets for Adjustable Beds

Although it is possible to use standard bed sheets with adjustable beds, the best way to guarantee compatibility is to pair bed sheets with the adjustable beds which they were specifically designed for. This practice ensures users with peace of mind that a manufacturer has considered all the different variables that are required for compatibility.

Proper Sizing for Bed Sheets

Bed sheets that are too small may not have enough length or width for the edges to tuck underneath a mattress. However, oversized sheets have a higher chance of crumpling, bundling up, or having excess material dangling because of too much sheet material. Before purchasing sheets for any type of bed, it is important to check the size of your mattress and then verify that the sheet sizing you are about to select is within a compatible size range.  All our PB-BD1 bedsheets fit mattresses up to 14" tall and come in Twin XL, Split King, Queen, and King sizes so you can find the perfect size for your needs!

How To Keep Sheets On Adjustable Beds using Accessories



If you still find that your bed sheets keep falling off, you may want to consider adding accessories that can assist with securing the placement of your bed sheets. Accessories such as bed sheet holder straps, fasteners, and suspenders are installed underneath a mattress and then attached to bed sheets so that they have added tension around the edges.

Our PB-AC05 bed sheet holder straps come in a set of four and work perfectly with all bed types and sizes! The triangular design provides a snug fit and holds all types of bedding, including fitted and flat sheets. Their elastic bands make fastening the straps underneath your mattress easy while the solid metal buckles provide a firm grip, and the plastic inserts keep fabrics protected. Also, the bands have adjustable cord locks that allow you to control the tension and match the straps’ length to bedsheets of a particular size.

These bed sheet holder straps will significantly benefit users who want to keep their original flat sheets but also require more secure bed sheet placement. Fitted sheets for electric adjustable beds can also benefit from our bed sheet holder straps which help to increase the longevity of their fitted sheets’ elastics. By keeping bed sheets in place more securely, bed sheet holder straps reduce how much you will need to rely on the elastic tension from fitted sheets and therefore preserve the elastics. Enjoy the convenience of adjusting bed configurations anytime without having to worry about your bed sheets sliding off or getting crumpled!
