A survey reveals that people are not keeping night lights on in the places that you might expect.

Americans are more likely to leave a light on for a snack in the kitchen then to need a light while fumbling around in the bedroom at night, according to a recent survey. Night Lights Market ( polled 100 people about their night time habits of leaving lights on while they sleep.

Of the people polled about their use of night lights, 19% keep their kitchen illuminated verses 7% who use a night light in the bedroom.

Rachel Weber, founder of said, “Aside from children’s rooms, it isn’t entirely surprising that people are primarily putting night lights in their kitchens. The trip to a bathroom is usually a relatively short one, and muscle memory is sufficient enough to get most people to the bathroom light switch. The kitchen, however, is typically a longer distance from the bedroom, and people are looking for a little assistance to help them make the longer trek. We call this the 'beacon effect', as the nightlight helps them to navigate to the area from a long distance."
