People may be familiar with Saatva if they’ve looked into purchasing an innerspring mattress online. Saatva makes high quality 11.5” and 14.5” mattresses with a spring-like feel that can be delivered straight to someone’s home.

They recently updated their 11.5” mattress and introduced an adjustable base, Lineal, that will work with the new mattress or any mattress made for adjustable beds.

With the promise of Zero Gravity and massage features, I put the Lineal to the test to see how it delivers. In the end, I liked the adjustable bed and its competitive pricing.

Read on for my full Saatva Lineal Adjustable Base review.

  • Frame: Lineal will work with any open cavity bed; foundations or box springs are not needed.
  • Fabric:  Lineal is made with an Antimicrobial upholstery in a color called “Textured Granite.”
  • Secure Corners: Clear plastic retainers in each corner help to keep the mattress in place as the base adjusts.
  • Wall-Hugging Feature: No matter what position the bed is in, it will always keep the same distance between the mattress top and the headboard.
  • Mattress Compatibility:  Saatva says the Lineal and their mattresses make the best pair, but the adjustable bed can really work with any mattress designed to work with other adjustable beds.
  • Warranty:  25-year warranty, which includes no cost for any repairs or parts for the first 5 years.
  • Price:  $1,399 for a Queen.

Key Features

  • Remote: All of the features and options that come with Lineal can be accessed through a single remote. Preset and customized settings are also available and AAA batteries are included.

Saatva Lineal Adjustable Bed Remote

  • Multiple Elevation Options: Ideal for watching TV or reading in bed, people can elevate their head and feet separately; when they decide to go back to a flat position they can do so with a click of a button.
  • Zero Gravity Support: This preset position raises both the head and feet in a way that gives people the feeling of weightlessness.
  • Massage: This feature comes with three different speeds and can focus on the head and/or legs or full body. If people fall asleep during the massage it will automatically turn off after 15 minutes.
  • Soft Motor:  Unlike the loud vibrating beds found in 1970’s motel rooms, Lineal’s motor is described as being “whisper soft” and one of the quietest motors in the industry.
  • Under Bed Lighting: A button on the remote will turn on lights under the bed; this is a great option for late night trips to the bathroom or to the kitchen for a midnight snack.
  • Easy Delivery: For an additional cost ($99), Saatva will come to the buyer’s house and deliver, unbox and assemble their bed (and/or mattress).
  • Split Option In King Size: King size can be split for individualized comfort.

Who Might Like Lineal?

  • People who Want Saatva mattresses. A lot of people ask whether Saatva can fit an adjustable base.  It used to not be the case, but now the Lineal is a perfect fit for a Saatva 11.5″ mattress (as well as Zenhaven and Loom & Leaf).
  • People who don’t like a hassle. For around $99 buyers can have Saatva come to their house to deliver and set up their adjustable base (and new mattress if they purchase both). And with all of the features and options available in a single remote, making adjustments in their bed should be simple and straightforward.
  • People who are on a budget. At $1,399 for a Queen, the Lineal adjustable base is on the more affordable side of adjustable beds.
  • Those Who Are Looking For Cool Extra Features– I loved the massage feature and have been using it frequently.  The wall-hugging feature is really cool as well if someone keeps stuff on their nightstand.  The ability to set and remember different positions is great too.

Who Might Not Like Lineal?

  • People who want to test the adjustable base out first. Once someone gets the adjustable base, it’s theirs, for better or worse. There is no in-home trial period and the adjustable base cannot be exchanged or returned.
  • Those Who Don’t Want Any Extra Features– If someone doesn’t want to pay for extra features like the massage features, then they might find something less expensive that will be a better fit for them.

Final Recommendation

The Lineal checks off all the boxes for me for what people would want in an adjustable bed.  If someone is getting a Saatva mattress, this should be a no-brainer if they want an adjustable bed to go with it.  I think it’s a great option for any mattress that fits an adjustable bed.

Since the base cannot be returned or exchanged, people should make sure they’re 100% committed to an adjustable bed experience before making the purchase.
