Although taken for granted today, beds were very rare and expensive assets in the past. In medieval times, the most common resting place was a pile of hay and perhaps a sheet. From the 13th century until recent history, more luxurious beds were made, but unfortunately, were only available to the noble and wealthy. These beds consisted of a wooden bed frame and a possibly lumpy mattress, which was supported by ropes fastened and tightened to the frame. Hardly affordable, these expensive pieces of furniture were topped with the best pillows, sheets, blankets and quilts, while being surrounded by exquisite canopies or curtains.
As the 20th century passed, the modern idea of beds was conceived and formed. Among the improvements in that era were bedsprings, which, although they were invented in the previous century, were introduced into popular use in the 1900s. Bedrooms also became more private, which was a trait they lacked before. Since servants had regularly aided in dressing and bathing, and because warmth was acquired in numbers for less luxurious living, bedrooms used to bustle with activity. Recently, new additions to the bed have appeared, such as bed-foam, comforters, bedspreads, and fascinating, multipurpose pillows. Beds are now widely available. Now serving individuals with much greater quality, a bed is a common asset in millions of homes.
