Do They Still Make Waterbeds?
Yes they do!!! In fact, they never stopped making them.
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 has been many improvements to the waterbed, and a lot of different types and styles have been brought forth to bear. Your father and grandfather'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 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.
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! A waterbed that looks just the same as the mattress you currently own.
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.
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.
What About the Waves?
Were you aware that waterbeds (both hardside and softside) also are available in a wide variety of wave styles? You can buy a waterbed that's totally waveless, or one that has a lot of waves, and everything in between.
They have 100% waveless, 80% waveless, 65% waveless and so on. You can get dual waterbed mattresses, just like you can get a regular dual mattress.
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?
