- Specifically, about six in ten respondents (64%) used one or two pillows when they sleep.
- More than one-fourth of the respondents (27%) used at least three pillows on their beds when they sleep.
How Long Ago Did People Buy Bedroom Items?
So many people agreed that mattresses, pillows, sheets and other bedroom products were important to sleep that we wondered when they last purchased these items for their bedroom. Was it in the past 6 months, more than 6 months to 1 year ago, more than 1 year to 2 years ago, more than 2 years to 5 years ago or more than 5 years ago?
The newest products were sheets and pillows. About three in ten respondents purchased sheets (30%) and/or pillows (27%) in the past 6 months.
It was a little longer for larger purchases. About two-thirds or respondents (67%) purchased a mattress more than 2 years ago and nearly one-half (49%) purchased bedroom curtains within the same time frame.
Approximately four in ten purchased a comforter (40%) and/or mattress pad or mattress protector (39%) and nearly three in ten (29%) purchased a pillow protectormore than two years ago.
