Are you looking for a new waterbed? If so, you're not alone – millions of Americans have been tuned into how great it can be to settle down for the night on a roving sea of soft water neatly contained by one of these aquatic mattresses. It’s really a different experience! If you can’t afford a houseboat, or you already live in a house – why not give a waterbed a try?
If you are in the market for a waterbed, you may want to think about the difference between hardside and softside waterbeds, and what the more modern softside option offers. This really makes a difference in how you use the waterbed and how you integrate it into your bedroom design.
Bump in the Night
One of the best things about softside waterbeds is that they’re generally not as likely to cause you an injury.
Softside waterbeds are mattresses that fill with water, without that hard exoskeleton that you associate with the traditional 1980s waterbed. Many of these legacy waterbed models with their bulky wooden frames were not very portable, and also presented some amount of danger in the house, for instance, to young ones who tend to go careening around a room roughhousing.
If you've ever been fetched a severe blow on the noggin by one of these wooden frames, you know what we’re talking about. It’s just not a lot of fun. Sharp angles and hard surfaces can give you a headache if you're not looking out for yourself!
Or suppose someone's getting amorous on one of these traditional waterbeds, and some unfortunate positioning results in hard contact between soft body tissues and that same hardwood veneer that really isn't very yielding at all.
You probably get the idea. Aside from being portable and manageable, softside waterbeds are safer in the house. That's why a lot of people are choosing these modern options for getting a better night’s sleep with a therapeutic waterbed experience.
