Background: Whether it is sophisticated design or high-end features, Leggett and Platt has clearly ruled the premium adjustable beds segment for quite long.
Other companies which found it difficult to compete with L&P in high-end segment focused their efforts in mid-range segment.
However, L&P has now launched its first mid-range model, Williamsburg Plus, which carries the same sophisticated design and certain advance features as well.
What’s the deal? There is no other mid-range model that comes with both wall hugging and pillow tilting options.
But L&P, as part of its deal, is offering these premium features in Williamsburg Plus. Moreover, it has dedicated buttons on its remote control to independently control pillow tilting.
Well, let’s take quick look at its feature set before going into in-depth feature-wise review and analysis.
Advance adjustment: Calming your head circulators, Williamsburg plus offers an additional and independent 15 degrees pillow tilting space.
It also includes advance wall hugging design whereby upper frame glides backwards and sticks to the wall even while performing head adjustments.
Basic adjustments: It has got the usual head adjustment up to 6o degrees and the feet adjustment up to 45 degrees.
Lumbar adjustment: This advance feature is part of premium models, Prodigy 2.0 and Comfort Elite. L&P has not included these in its mid-range Williamsburg model.
Finally, these wide range of adjustments allow you to accurately adjust to your favorite positions., let you do a lot of parallel activities like watching TV and having food in bed itself.
Lift motor capacity: Like all mid-range models, Williamsburg Plus lift motor capacity also stands at 750lbs. Remember, most high-end models support weights up to 850lbs to 900lbs and mid-range models up to 650lbs to 750lbs.
Standard wireless remote controls are a norm with most mid-range and high-end models. But if you have noticed the case with Leggett and Platt, the company offers the most advance and intuitive touch sensitive remotes.
However, the one with Williamsburg Plus is a simple wireless remote that offers 18 buttons. It means there is no compromise on the number of functions, only the remote model is a bit off from regular L&P remotes.
Preset and memory programmable positions
It would be annoying to adjust your base every time to your favorite angle. This is where preset positions come in handy and Williamsburg Plus offers 3 preset positions out of the total 4 – Flat, zero-gravity and anti-snore.
Well, there might not be dedicated memory positions, but the remote allows you to customize zero-gravity and anti-snore presets to your favorite angles.
The other way to access and control the bed positions and customizations is through the Mobile application apart from remote control.
This application almost serves as a replica of the remote control that helps you in performing all the actions.
Mobile App is available for both Android and IOS device users.
We don’t think there needs to be a special evaluation of massage functionality offered by Leggett and Platt. It is world class and unmatched in entire adjustable beds segment.
Williamsburg Plus offers
- Dual head and feet massage – Individual massage motors are installed for head and feet sections separately for effective and soothing experience
- 2 massage modes – It comes with two different massage modes – singular and circular
- 3 massage intensities – low, medium and high
- 2 Massage timers – Massage timers are quite important and Williamsburg has 15 mins and 30 mins timers. Upon reaching the set time, massage motors auto shut-off.
With no step going low, the Williamsburg is equipped with dual USB ports (4 in total) for charging up your devices.
Two ports positioned on either side of the bed allowing you to charge multiple devices at any given time.
Number of legs
All new adjustable bed bases have 6 leg units unlike the traditional bases which had just 4 legs. The two in the middle offer additional stability especially while performing adjustments or when massage motors are running.
Height adjustability is definitely a must have feature as one size doesn’t fit all. However, Williamsburg Plus somehow comes with fixed height of 7-inches.
In case. the height really doesn’t match up your standards, then you can choose a different leg unit of size which is provided by the company separately.
Well, the overall size of your mattress too could help you achieve your preferred height.
Flash Light and under-bed lighting
Other mid-range models, include either flashlight or under the bed lighting. But L&P has included both of these in Williamsburg base.
Other than remote control, even the mobile app has options to operate these two functions.
Mattress retainer bar
Williamsburg is equipped with mattress retainer bar at feet section.
Being a mid-range model might have prompted L&P to not include its advance nano-hook technology, which otherwise is part of its premium Prodigy and Comfort Elite models.
The company offers 10-Year warranty on Williamsburg adjustable base. If you screen through other mid-range models like Blissful Nights and iDealBed 4i, they too offer the same 10-Year warranty period.
10-Years is perhaps the highest in mid-range segment.
Conclusion – Williamsburg Plus Review
As a final Verdict, Leggett and Platt has equipped its mid-range Williamsburg Plus with all mandatory as well as few advance features.
For instance, pillow tilting and wall hugging are two very sophisticated features which are apparently not offered by any other mid-range model.
The price is too is quite reasonable and in fact much less when compared with the quality of Leggett and Platt adjustable bed bases.
