The almost weightlessness and portability of these mattress, when it is not inflated, allows it to be carried conveniently anytime and anywhere. Especially if one is traveling long distances. An air mattress can also be used in swimming activities, as it can actually float in water. An outdoor activity like camping is not a problem with an air mattress because of its durability features. This is one popular feature and use for these air mattresses.
If you have any unexpected guest, you could always inflate your air mattress and give your guest a comfortable sleeping area. You may even manipulate the texture and feel of the air mattress to fit your needs once you inflate it. You could keep on making adjustments in your air mattress until you are comfortable with it. Aside from that, an air mattress will not take much space once you set it aside.
The air mattress can be set up easily and quickly in your room. You’ll just pull it out from your storage room, fill it with air, adjust it based on your desired texture or feel and you will have an instant bed that you could put anywhere and anytime that you want to. The air mattress is available in different shapes and sizes that you may choose from to fit your needs. For example, when my daughter has a sleepover with her friends at our home, they like to chill out and watch movies. We simply pull out the air mattress, inflate it and the kids are ready to have a relaxing night.
If you would like to keep it warm, you may use a hair dryer to fill it with hot air that will make you feel comfortable during cold weather. An air mattress provides a sleeping area that will match the curves of the body, which promotes a quality sleep for people who are finding it hard to take a nap.
History of the Air Mattress
The first models of air beds were inflated by blowing air to the items orally. It was followed by using pedals and the energy made from it is the one used to inflate the air mattresses. The latest models of air mattresses use an electric motor to fill them with air and then a button is pushed to deflate the items. From our own experience at home using them, it takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish.
Whether you are looking for a permanent bed, a temporary bed or a bed that you will use for your camping activity, having an air mattress at home just makes sense.
