A survey of 2,000 UK adults revealed that the bedroom is the most neglected room in the house when it comes to redecoration. I touched on this idea recently when we looked at simple ways to freshen up your bedroom look, and now we've got the stats to back it up! Over 65 per cent of people questioned said they consider redecorating the bedroom less important than other rooms in the home, with 60 per cent saying that it’s because it is the room no one really sees and is only used for sleeping. However, over 25 per cent of people recognised that the bedroom is the room where we spend more time than any other, and also referred to the importance of creating the right environment for getting a good night’s sleep. This makes me think of that feeling you get when first entering your room at a very nice hotel, seeing how beautifully decorated it is with that big, comfy bed in the middle, and then you can hardly wait to settle in and go to sleep. There's no reason we can't recreate that peaceful feeling in our own bedrooms!
