How Do You Feel About Your Bedroom?

Digital Vision/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A lot of people would probably stay in their bedrooms all the time, if it wasn’t for the little matter of having to go make a living and other various responsibilities like marriage, kids and social plans.

Still, the National Sleep Foundation wanted to know more about how Americans feel about their bedrooms, and after one thousand phone interviews and Web surveys of adults 25 to 55, the study revealed that a majority of Americans think their pillows, sheets and mattresses are better than what they’d find in a quality hotel room.

Seventy-six of respondents said that they got a good night’s sleep at least a couple of nights a week, although 41 percent confessed that they tossed and turned a few nights a week as well, with one in four complaining about how a partner’s movements keep them up at night.

Speaking of partners, nearly two-thirds have got another body in bed while the rest snooze alone.

Americans also tend to make their beds with just over three in four doing it at least a couple of times a week and 56 percent claiming to make their beds every day or almost every day.

As far as having electronic devices in the bedroom, seven in ten say there’s a TV set in the same room with 11 percent leaving it on all night. About 40 percent have a computer in the bedroom with three percent refusing to power down overnight.
