IKEA’s Harbin shopping center launched a package of solutions for those suffering sleep problems, targeting local residents, on the morning of March 3.

A report on the quality of Chinese sleep launched by IKEA reveals that the average sleep time for Chinese people is 9 hours, while the average sleep time of Harbin residents is only 7.5 hours.

The study found that the main factors that affect the quality of sleep of Harbin’s residents are the early dawns during summer because of the city’s high latitude, caring for infants at night and during the early hours of the morning, “partner interference” and the poorer sleep habits of the elderly.

Targeting the factors behind poor sleep patterns, a package of solutions -- including an improved arrangement for the insomniac’s bedding, and adjustments to the indoor temperature, lights and color tones of the sufferer’s interior decor -- were launched at the Harbin shopping mall.

A selection of interior design examples for bedrooms were displayed at IKEA’s four exhibition rooms.

In addition, during the coming Qingming Festival holidays, free services for interior designs will be offered to Harbin residents.
