Waterbeds first came on the scene at the end of 1960’s and remained extremely popular for over two decades. What started as a novelty was later found to aid individuals suffering with back problems and various health issues like allergies and asthma. While many purchased them just for fun, others jumped aboard on what seemed to be a medicinal alternative for so many health issues.
After hearing of their benefits, many climbed into the waterbed bandwagon. It was and still is a simple yet durable, large vinyl bladder. This bag bladder is filled with water and placed into durable a wooden supportive frame. One of the most amazing and beneficial features of these beds is temperature control by way of a specially designed heater making it especially nice for those seeking the warmth from the water during the cooler seasons. While these were certainly an innovation of the times, there were difficulties.
Getting in and out over the surrounding boxed wood frame was particularly difficult. The early free flowing mattress came with it’s own set of issues. If one person rolled and turned over, the wave effect jostled and disrupted the partner’s sleep. Padded rails placed on the top of the side frame helped to comfort when entering and exiting but did nothing to dampen the disruption of waves.
Technology has transformed waterbeds over the years, remedying many of the early difficulties. Today, the waterbed experience is quite different and consumers will be quite surprised when they visit a showroom to try them out. There is, in fact, another style of waterbeds available for today’s waterbed shopper:
Conversions: Often individuals with waterbeds have purchased an entire bedroom suite of matching furniture. This can be quite costly when they decide that they no longer wish to have a waterbed. Rather than face discarding an entire room of furniture, consumers may now purchase regular mattresses which are designed to replace water mattresses. These “conversion” mattresses will provide a one-inch opening on all sides, so that, when placed in a frame, they can easily be worked around when it time for bed linen changes.
Whether you need a new waterbed mattress, an entirely new waterbed system or you simply wish to convert your waterbed mattress, it’s important to note that these days you now have many viable options!
