The 2012 Bedroom Poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation gives an interesting snapshot of what we prefer behind closed doors.
Eighty-seven percent said the decor of their bedrooms influenced their sleep.
Factors cited as important for quality rest were a comfortable mattress, pillows, and bedding in a quiet, dark, temperate room.
Room darkening window treatments were used by 62% of respondents and over a quarter of those surveyed slept solo.
Thirty-three percent agreed that ideally 7 to less than 8 hours sleep were necessary for personal well-being.
Singles have more pillows on their beds (average of 2.4) than married people (2.1 pillows), but those who are married are more likely to make their beds in the morning.
