Do They Still Make Waterbeds?

Yes they do!!! In fact, they never stopped making waterbeds.
In the intervening years from the start of the waterbed in the late '60s, up through the popular years of the 70s, 80s and 90s, there have been many improvements to the waterbed. Besides that, a lot of different types and styles of waterbeds have been brought forth to bear. Your father, mother and grandparent's waterbed has been changing quite a bit over the years. It's not only about the original wooden frame waterbeds with the bookcase shelves and headboards anymore. Not only are waterbeds still as much fun as they used to be, but you can get them in a variety of different designs, and with singular characteristics than ever before.
However, the same intuitive aspect of sleeping on water still draws in the same type of individual looking for that unique and distinctive method of finding the perfect way of sleeping and relaxing that eludes them with a regular mattress and traditional bed. After all, having a waterbed still means using an ingrained sense of adventure and an untypical way to live and sleep, just like it always did.
If you've never had a waterbed, then you are in for a special treat, and you will also realize a more exciting way to sleep at night than ever before. If you have trouble sleeping at night, or you if you find yourself more tired in the morning than when you went to be the night before, a waterbed may just be the change you need.

What Types of Waterbeds Do They Make?

You may not even realize that they make two different types of waterbeds these days.
You can get a hardside waterbed (just like the old style waterbed) or you can actually get a waterbed that looks just like a regular mattress (called a softside waterbed).
That's right! You can buy a waterbed mattress that looks just the same as the regular mattress you currently own on your traditional bed.
Cool right? Even better, if you buy a softside waterbed then you won't have to buy a new set of bedding and sheets. The ones you own currently will work fine on your new waterbed.
The same can be said for your current bed frame.....your new softside waterbed mattress will fit in your traditional bed frame. You can't beat that, and it will save you money.
If you are looking for the original look of a waterbed from your youth (wooden frame, sides, headboard etc.), then the hardside is for you.

Take a look below to see the difference between a softside and hardside waterbed.

What About the Waves a Waterbed Creates?
Were you aware that waterbeds (both hardside and softside) are also available in a wide variety of wave motions? You can buy a waterbed that's totally waveless, or one that has a lot of waves, and everything in between. So, if you're the type of person who might feel a little 'seasick' from too much motion, then there is a ton of other wave types to choose from.
You can choose from 100% waveless, 80% waveless, 65% waveless and so on. You can also get a dual waterbed mattresses, just like you can with a regular dual mattress. This means that your partners' side of the waterbed will be totally independent from yours. This is especially helpful for those of you who are sensitive to your partners thrashing and moving during the night.
As with regular beds, a waterbed can be split, so that both you and your partner can sleep independently, but still share the same bed. It really is becoming a perfect world isn't it?
