inside 100 bedrooms
BUFORD, Georgia — Following the market studies on the
use of kitchens and bathrooms, Hettich has now taken a look
inside 100 bedrooms. The bedroom is a very central space
people spend most of their time in at home, even if they are
mostly asleep. Apart from the kitchen, it is also the room that
needs the most storage space.
The average bedroom is mostly furnished with a free standing wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a bed with slatted mattress
base and two bedside tables. The average age of the furniture
viewed was nine years.
Traditionally, wardrobes and chests of drawers are used for
keeping clothes, underwear, socks, bed linen and towels in.
But shoes, jewelery, cosmetics and even music instruments,
sports equipment and office materials are stored in them too.
This means that bedroom furniture needs to meet a wide
range of needs. Often, neither wardrobes nor chests of draw-
ers are fitted with any interior organization system. This is
where there is clear potential for enhancing user friendliness.
Beds too need to meet various demands: for instance, people
read, watch television, have breakfast and learn in them.
Those interviewed are altogether satisfied with their present
bedroom, only 24 percent said they were unhappy with it.
Lacking storage space was the main reason they gave for
being dissatisfied. http://bit.ly/21cKhv T
