DISCUSSION: It’s not always a bed of roses in the bedroom

THERE are plenty of different bedroom behaviours out there, and an IKEA study has revealed some of them.

The study said that people do everything from letting their pets on their bed to having childhood toys still in their room.

We asked our Facebook readers: What bedroom behaviour bugs you?

Kirsty Fyfe: My bed is for people. Pets have their own beds.

Food belongs at the table. Yeah I'm fussy with it lol

Arlena Preston: I can't stand food in the bed! Yuck!

Melita Nelson: Partner complaining bout me stealing the covers... dunno what he's talking bout

Shannon Berge: Animals in a house is gross; let alone a bedroom

Jilly Bean: Will not eat in bed, I hate the crumbs, never have a pet in my bed ewww , and as for stealing the doona we solved that one years ago, hubby and I have same bed BUT separate doonas

Melanie Roberts: When my hubby farts under the covers omg hate it big time

Ash Sheriff: When people don't wipe their feet before getting into bed.

Jen Lodewikus: Hubby Ben constantly steals the blankets!!!

Amanda An Jeff: Snoring and pets in the bed also crumbs I don't care if you eat in the bed just don't spill it

Grey Wombat: Snoring!!!

Sharron Payne: Definitely snoring!

Ryan Mathew Newport: no food, must be showered before getting in it, and my side is always the one closest to the door.
