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.
Adjustable beds are made in two styles: standard or heavy-duty. Adjustable beds are comprised of two main components: the base and the mattress. There are several features to be considered while buying an adjustable bed: the size of the mattress (twin, queen, king or full) and the type of mattress (foam, latex, coil spring or air). Ordinary mattresses cannot be used on adjustable beds. The mattresses for adjustable beds are also specially designed to suit the human body. This helps to relieve strain on certain parts of the body and proper spinal alignment. They are also provided with adjustable rails on either side.
This design prevailed for centuries. Throughout history, very few aspects of the bed changed. Eventually, improvements developed with the idea of bedsprings. Although invented in the 1870’s, they weren’t manufactured and sold for many years. Providing wonderful, novel comfort, these springs removed the loathed lumps which had prevented a satisfying night’s sleep. Also invented in the 19th century, the metal bed frame proved inhospitable to bed bugs, while wood frames were weakened by them. The new bed frame would continue to support up to 10 layers of sheets, blankets, quilts and more at that time. Resulting from countless, uncomfortable nights, a flawed design was ultimately changed.
Because of all they provide, beds should never be taken for granted. Their present state far surpasses that of the 13th century. Until the late 19th century little of what is known today existed. Unless the privilege we now have is recognized, it won’t be given the proper respect. Unfortunately, there are many things in this advanced and blessed era which never receive a second thought. Too often the simple pleasures of life are mindlessly disregarded and passed over. It’s like they’ve always existed for everyone. This isn’t true. Being significantly more blessed than they realize, people must learn to give thanks. So be grateful for what is provided for you, because there is more there than meets the eye.
