Many people have splashed out on new items such as a desk chair (13%), house plants (12%) and a new desk (10%), with a comfy pillow to lean on (17%) being another popular choice.
Working from home has also led to humorous accidents, with two thirds of people saying something funny happened while they were on a work call. More than a quarter of people have had guest appearances from their families ‘zoombombing’ in the background, 18% have been caught wearing their pyjamas and 14% have had comments about how untidy their rooms were.
After working all day in our bedrooms, it’s important to find ways to switch off and relax. Who better to help then, than our Head of Sleep Sarah Simpson:
“We welcome millions of guests every year and no one understands better than us the importance of getting a great night’s sleep –which is why we take such great care in getting all of the details in our bedrooms right; from the lighting to the paint colours - nothing is overlooked.
As the bed expert for Premier Inn, part of my role is ensuring the bedroom environment is optimum for sleeping– this includes the comfort of the mattress, but also the pillows and duvets. As more and more people are working from their bedroom it is important to have a bed that supports you for both work and sleep and that your bedroom environment is set up to support both uses.
From starting your day right by getting out of your pyjamas to winding down and getting into crisp, clean (crumb free) sheets, there are loads of things you can do, and we have a whole host of tips to help you get the best night’s sleep possible.”
With lots of us heading back to work soon, it’s time to reclaim bedrooms for what they’re meant for – sleep. It’s also the perfect opportunity to replace and upgrade beds and pillows. Did you know, our Premier Inn beds and pillows are available to buy online?
