Water beds are just that - beds filled with water! There are two types of water bed, soft sided water bed or hard sided water bed. The more expensive water beds are made to lessen the wave effect which was common in the early models. Water beds are usually heated and a thermostat controls the temperature. Divans are very common and are less expensive than other types of bed. They are made from wooden covered with material and the mattress sits on top. Many divans come with built in drawers which provide plenty of storage space. Sofa beds are sofas which can convert into beds when required. They are great for spare rooms as they can be kept as a sofa and then pulled down into a bed if you have guests.
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.
Kids sometimes have allergy problems which must be considered. If your kid is allergic to dust mites or has asthma, you’ll want to select bedding that is mite-proof and anti-allergy. Top quality mattress covers and pillow covers can be a great help in controlling allergies. While this certainly won’t solve all the allergy problems, it will make a big difference in allergic reactions. Some kids are also allergic to the latex used in some bedding. Most bedding does not include latex in their fabric, however those rare selections containing Lycra do. Also, the elastic used to hold fitted sheets onto the mattress has latex. Consider allergic reactions when choosing bedding for your kids.
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.
