SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Korea Bizwire) — Less than half of South Koreans are currently satisfied with their own bedroom, a recent survey has showed.
According to Swedish furniture giant IKEA’s survey of 1,000 residents of Seoul and Gyeonggi Province, only 45.8 percent of all respondents said they were currently satisfied with their bedrooms.
The respondents spent an average of 8.3 hours a day on weekdays and about 9.5 hours on weekends in their bedroom.
The most common reasons for satisfaction were “well organized”, accounting for 38.9 percent, “relaxed and comfortable”, accounting for 35.2 percent, and “not many things in the bedroom”, accounting for 34 percent.
On the other hand, the reasons why they are not satisfied with their bedroom were “small”, accounting for 26.5 percent, “not much space for storage,” accounting for 24 percent and “no furniture for rest”, accounting for 23 percent.
The respondents also defined “good sleep” as not waking up while sleeping, and feeling refreshed when they wake up in the morning.
Getting a certain amount of quality sleep every day is very important for mental and physical health.
The report also showed that getting quality sleep is critical as it can interfere with work or daily life.
Nicolas Johnson, country commercial manaver at IKEA Korea, said that while the sleep environment is different, the overall need for better daily lives through “quality sleep” is rising in South Korean society.
