It is in human nature to select things that are just right for us. Being creatures of habit, we like to keep things the way they are, while making sure that they remain comfortable and easy-to-use for us. While change may be the only constant, we like to keep things never-changing, all the while making sure that our routines are never disturbed, that our bubbles of self-containment are never broken, and that we keep drifting in this ever-so-expanding universe, aimless or with a vision. The daily grind is tiring, no doubt, but one thing that all of us always look forward to is sleep.
That sweet, calming sleep that takes us to uncharted worlds within the depths of our consciousness, making us heroes, legends or even gods, or sometimes knocking the breath out of us. Nightmares or not, we all love sleeping, and some of us just can’t wait to get into bed and never step out, even if it’s noon the next day. So sweet is the song of beds, luring you to fall into their laps and wipe out all the troubles of the long day, that this routine of ours gets utmost priority in our life. Nobody likes to compromise with their bed, nobody.
With more than 7 billion restless souls on this little green marble, that swings along the Sun once every 365 days, if we are to consider that everyone requires a completely different set of priorities for sleeping every single night, then the odds will never be in our favour. Thankfully, somehow, we have overlapping requirements when it comes to sleeping, which can easily be covered by the existing combinations of beds, mattresses and pillows. So, whether it is a hard, stiff mattress, an extremely soft one that just sucks you right in, or that lovely combination of the two, we can easily find the right kind of bed, just like Goldilocks.
Thanks to the prevailing technology, which never stops, and to which we have succumbed to such great levels that we can’t help but wear and carry it with us every day, the intervention into the bare necessity of sleeping has brought some lovely combinations of beds, pillows and mattresses that adjust to support your back the right way, giving you that much-needed rest and an escape into your Wildest Dreams.
So, which combination is right for you? The best way is the trial and error method, but it might be too much, and could even annoy your host in a shop, so it’s better to nail down certain things, and confine your testing within some parameters, so that when you go hunting for the right bed, or beds, you don’t have trouble to find what you’ve been looking for, without annoying anyone in the shop.
Cold, Cold Heart
Because no two humans are the same, there is always a possibility of finding that masochist person who enjoys pain, who likes to be hard on the outside, and inside, and even prefers the same form of sleeping nook. These people love to keep their body stiff, and because nothing else can accommodate their rigidity, a mattress that always keeps things stiff, and a bed, preferably a hard, wooden bed, that matches their personality, with rigid fixtures and clean-cut lines that do not let anything stand on the surface, is exactly what such a person needs. And this doesn’t stop here, they need stiff pillows too. It’s good to know that we have every kind of hard material available to support such people, and if they can’t find the right bed, they always have the bare and cold floor to sleep on.
Keeping Things Mellow
When you stretch yourself on a soft, plush and smoothly textured bed sheet, a pleasantness runs down your spine, which is hard to put into words. If you like this kind of stuff, then the world is open to let you explore with almost all kinds of fabric combinations and beds, with accessories that will satisfy you down to your every last bone, and give you the sleep you so dearly love. Quilts, blankets and sheets made out of cotton and silk are always the best choice for that much needed softness to cover you from the harsh cold nights. And pillows filled with soft feathers or cotton are ideal in such cases. There is no problem with the kind of beds these people would want, and they can accommodate the right kind of mattress with their beds, even if they happen to be metal ones. With that set, you can just easily escape into a beautiful sleep, full with fluffy dreams of rabbits, teacup piglets and every kind of candy-land critter that you can think of!
The Middle Child
The third kind of category is exactly what Goldilocks went for in the iconic fairy tale. A bed that is neither too soft and nor too hard. Sponges are the best-case scenario for people who like to embrace this balance. Pillows, that are plump, and still don’t sag under the leaden weight of your head, and quilts that are just right, coupled with a bed that speaks out about you is what you really need. Good night’s sleep, guaranteed!
What about those Wild Dreams?
Expressing your expressions is a form of expressionism art movement. And what better way than using your bed, and all the elements that come with it, to shout loud about who you really are? Whether you like soft, hard or just right, you can pick a bed and get it customized the way you want. There is no harm in exploring this wildly. For all we care, you can have a simple crib, a coffin, a castle, an open library or even Death Star as your headboard or bed accessory. Whatever gets you to sleep, use it. Don’t count the sheep though, their constant, ceaseless chatter disturbs you easily.
No matter what your sleeping preference is, there is always a bed that is meant for you, and there will always be accessories available to describe your craziness. Make sure that you know what kind of person you are, before you go shopping for beds online. Whether it is beds with storage or not, beautiful and artistic headboards or simple, rustic touches, beds on wheels or beds that are upholstered to every single inch, single beds, double beds or bunk beds, the market is open to you. Buy your bed online, or be a hardworking, calorie-burning man and search for one from your nearest shopping centre, we will leave all that up to you. And if you want to hit that extra mile of craziness, please, be our guest.
