Nectar Adjustable Base Overview

Here at GoodBed, we're asked more and more frequently about adjustable bases, which got their start as a home version of an adjustable hospital bed. Now, of course, they look nothing like a piece of clinical equipment.

An adjustable base is an easy way to add functionality and comfort to an existing mattress. For more on adjustable bases in general, check out our Adjustable Base Buyer's Guide.

The Nectar Adjustable Bed Frame has all the standard features you'll find on most adjustable bases, including the ability to raise both the head and the foot, along with several presets, including a less common "anti-snore' setting. Other less common features include USB ports right on the frame, handy for plugging in a phone, and a timer for the massage features (some completing models require you to turn off the massage manually).

The Nectar base is less expensive than some of its competition, but it's also missing a couple of helpful features like a wall-hugger feature and under-bed lighting. But the Nectar does have a big bonus -- a 50-night trial period with free returns. Nearly all competing adjustable bases are non-returnable, making it difficult if not impossible to try before you buy.

The base is available in twin XL, full/double, queen, and split king sizes (where both sides of the bed can be adjusted independently with its own remote control).

The Nectar Adjustable Base has a total weight capacity of 1,000 pounds, which would include the weight of your mattress. Here's our closer look at its features and functionality.

Position Features

The Nectar adjustable base has both head and foot adjustments, which can be operated separately or together. There is a "flat" button that returns the bed to the original position. In addition to being able to manually raise the head and foot however you like, there are some presets:

TV: This is a pre-set head-up feature that's set by the factory which raises the head and foot for a position comfortable for watching TV in bed.

Zero-G: This setting raises both head and foot a small amount, meant to be a position that takes the most pressure off of any one part of the body. The idea is to feel as if you are floating.

Anti-snore: This setting raises the head just a tiny bit (less than 10 degrees), intended to quiet snoring.

Custom: As the name suggests, you can create up to three custom settings; raise the head and foot to a position you like, then save the setting so you can always return to it.

Massage Features

The Nectar Adjustable Bed Frame includes quite a bit of massage functionality. You can choose to vibrate the head or the foot. or both. Each has three speeds, and three "modes" are available: Normal is just straight up vibration; Pulse will adjust the intensity for a pulsating effect; Wave increases and decreases the intensity gradually.

An unusual feature is a timer on the massage features, for 10, 20 or 30 minutes (or no timer). Quite a few other models force you to turn off the massage feature manually.

We also considered the noise level while using massage features. On the lowest settings, the noise from the motor was average and not too bothersome, but on high, we found it to be louder than average and definitely noticeable by those in nearby rooms. Placing the frame on a carpeted floor or using rubber mats under the frame's feet should help.


Wireless Remote

The remote control (or controls if you order the split king) is wireless. The keypad is backlit so it's easier to see in the dark.

In addition to the controls, the remote can double as a flashlight with the push of a button.

Assembly and Furniture

The Nectar will arrive in a large box. From there, you'll need to move it to your bedroom and assemble it (unless you pay for white glove delivery). Assembly was a straightforward process, but we would recommend a second pair of hands.

The Nectar base is designed to drop right into any full-frame bed furniture, like a sleigh bed, with no additional hardware -- you would just need to remove any slats or supports that might be already in the middle of your furniture.

The frame, however, cannot attach to a headboard, and it comes with no hardware to do so. But as long as your furniture is freestanding, you should be able to drop the Nectar base right in.

When you assemble it, you'll also need to decide on height. Depending on how you install the feet. the frame can sit 8.5", 12.5" or 15" off the floor.


Delivery, Returns, & Warranty

  • Free delivery to door
  • White-glove delivery available for $149

The Nectar Adjustable Bed Frame comes packed in a box, so you'll be responsible for getting it into the house and putting it together unless you upgrade to white-glove delivery for an additional $149. If you do, set up in the room of your choice is included, and movers will remove all the packaging.

  • 50-night trial period with free returns
Most adjustable bases are not returnable, but the Nectar is a notable exception. You get 50 nights to try the frame at home, and if you decide to return it, you may do so for a full refund. The company will even arrange to pick it up from you.
    •  3 year warranty with limitations

    Nectar includes a 3-year total warranty for its adjustable frame, but only the first year is a true 'bumper to bumper' warranty that covers everything. In that first year, if you have a valid warranty claim, the company will send replacement parts, or replace the entire unit if necessary. After the first year, only the steel structure is covered under warranty -- not the electronics.
