Fun Facts About Your Bedroom
Our bedroom and bathroom are sacred spaces in your home. It’s where you can be yourself, and strip the metaphorical mask we all wear in public. Our bedroom is also where we watch T.V, play games, listen to music, and get much-needed rest at the end of the day. Well, in our bedroom research, we found some really interesting facts that will make you think about your bedroom differently.
The bedroom wasn’t always considered a private space. In fact, bedrooms would often have complete strangers in them. Family members, co-workers, and even servants would share the bedroom or even the bed itself. It wasn’t until the 1800s that the practice seemed to die out.
Pillows were often thought to be a feminine product, and only necessary for women in labor. Some men believed something hard like a log, or no prop at all, was the best way to sleep. Good thing that’s an idea of the past!
The term “nightmare” actually originates from the word “maere”, which referenced a demon or spirit thought to lay on a person as they slept. Now nightmares just reference bad and/or uncomfortable dreams.
