Nectar Adjustable Base Review
We fell in love with Nectar last year when we first reviewed their mattress. In fact, it is one of our favorite mattresses to this day. So, we were super excited when we got our hands on their adjustable bed frame for review. Like the mattress, it is a budget friendly option that we simply can’t resist! Keep reading as we dive into the details.

Purchasing your base
The adjustable base is available in Twin XL, Full, Queen and Split King. Unfortunately at this time Nectar does not have a purchase option for Twin, or King. We are hoping that is added in the near future.
In addition to the adjustable base, the following options are available:
- Foundation: available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King and Cal. King
- Metal Frame: one size fits all (adjustable)
- Frame with headboard: available in Full, Queen and King
In the meantime, if your mattress fits one of the available adjustable base sizes, here is what to expect:
Free Shipping and Returns
Like the Nectar mattress, the base comes with free shipping and returns. It ships in a large cardboard box and is fairly heavy so you may need some help getting into the bedroom for set up.
Mike did manage to assemble the base by himself but, if you can grab the assistance of a friend or significant other we highly recommend it. Or, if you’d rather save yourself the fuss entirely, you can opt for white glove service for an additional $149. If purchasing the mattress together with the base it is $149 for the mattress and an additional $45 for the base.
Rather save the money and assemble it yourself? We suggest allotting around 30 minutes to complete setup.
50 Night Home Trial and 3 Year Warranty
Nectar offers a risk-free, 50 night home trial. If for any reason you aren’t 100% satisfied with your purchase before the end of the 50 nights you can return it for a full refund. In addition to a generous trial period, the adjustable base comes with a 3 year warranty. For full warranty details, check out Nectar’s website.
Pricing and Financing Options
A Queen adjustable base starts at $799. See available discounts here.
Financing is available through Affirm for as little as 0% APR (subject to credit checks and approval). Qualify for payments as low as $67/month on the base only. Or, as little as $79/month for a bundle, including mattress.
What can I do with the Nectar Adjustable base?
Now that we have covered the purchase details it is time to move onto the exciting stuff, the features! Like the mattress, the adjustable base delivers a lot of bang for your buck considering the reasonable price point.
We really like the neutral color palette. It has a nice, clean, modern look that we think easily pairs with accessories. There is a thin metal bar at the base of the bed to help anchor your mattress in place as you adjust positions.
The manual adjustments are pretty straightforward, allowing you to adjust your head and your feet independently. The base remains stationary with a total height of 15 inches, leaving 9 inches of storage space underneath. When completely elevated the head height reaches 40 inches and the feet 21 inches.
The cool thing here? As you adjust the head and feet, the storage space underneath never alters!
Like memory foam, we have NASA to thank for Zero Gravity. Zero Gravity is defined as the state or condition of weightlessness and while your mattress or base can’t actually defy the laws of gravity, a zero gravity sleep position can help emulate the feeling of weightlessness by alleviating pressure on the body.
In the zero gravity sleep position the head and legs are slightly raised with the knees gently bent. This position can help reduce snoring, improve circulation and digestion, and reduce acid reflux, amongst other benefits.
Always wanted to have a massage in your own bed? Not a problem, the massage feature allows for independent adjustment of the head and feet and offers 6 different levels of intensity. Rather than a kneading sensation, you will experience more of a gentle vibration.
While we experienced next to no noise on the lowest setting we did find the high intensity setting to be a bit noisy.
Each side of the base comes with 2 USB ports near the head of the bed for a total of 4 ports.
This is one of those seemingly small things that absolutely makes a big difference for us. I mentioned earlier how much I dislike having tons of cords cluttering up my space and while you obviously still need to connect the USB cord, we really appreciated the convenience of being able to charge our phones by the bedside without having to worry about finding an extra outlet.
