Bedrooms are important to getting a good night's sleep

Bedrooms are important to getting a good night's sleep, according to the first ever Bedroom Poll from the National Sleep Foundation. The poll found that Americans love their bedrooms and believe that comfort and cleanliness are fundamental to good sleep. Highlights of the poll include: Almost Half of Americans Are "Great Sleepers". While most Americans believe their bedrooms are important to good sleep, only about four in ten Americans (42%) are "great sleepers" who say they get a good night's sleep every night or almost every night. Americans Love Their Bedrooms. The vast majority of Americans, more than nine out of ten, say that mattresses and pillows are important to getting a good night's sleep, and more than three-quarters of Americans also believe that the comfortable feel of sheets and bedding are important. Simple Indulgences Make a Difference. Simple indulgences can also make a difference in how you feel about sleep. The poll showed that simple things like a fresh scent to your sheets or making your bed each day can impact how you feel about going to bed or even how you sleep. In fact, more than three-fourths of Americans (78%) say that they are more excited to go to bed on sheets with a fresh scent. About seven in ten Americans (71%) say they get a more comfortable night's sleep on sheets with a fresh scent. Interestingly, poll respondents who say they make their bed every day are 19% more likely to say they get a good night's sleep every night than those who don't.
