Step By Step Guide: How to make a Bed?

If you’re waking up gazed and groggy, your unmade bed from the last night could be the reason. People who make their bed every morning are 19% more likely to get a good night’s sleep. Although thinking about how to make a bed probably isn’t on the top of your to-do list in the morning, making your bed in the morning can help you feel rested and prepared for the day.

Preparing your bed in Layers is the key to a visually appealing and ultra-comfortable bed. Choosing versatile bed sheets or other items will let you customize your comfort, whether you sleep warm or like to burrow in at night. But what is the easy and proper way to make a bed? Here’s the step-by-step guide you can follow.

  1. Begin with a Bed Skirt 

Even though they aren’t required, bed skirts are wonderful for hiding storage boxes or unattractive bed frames. Just make sure to iron it first to ensure a smooth, wrinkle-free bed skirt.

Here’s how to put a bed skirt:

  • Remove your mattress first.
  • If you have a full-style skirt, position it over your box spring so that it faces the same direction as your frame.
  • If you have a three-sided elastic skirt, carefully drape it around your mattress, aligning the skirtless side with the headboard.
  • Carefully align the stitches of your bed skirt with your bed frame.
  • Place your mattress over the bed skirt.
  1. Use a Mattress Protector 

Although they may not be as attractive as throw pillows or blankets, mattress protectors are important for long-term bed cleanliness. A good mattress protector can help you sleep worry-free without affecting the feel or comfort of your sleeping surface. Other benefits may include:

  • Protects your mattress from spilling
  • Prevents stains
  • Protects against wear and tear
  • Prevents allergens like dust, mites, and microbes from penetrating your mattress
  1. Put on the Fitted Sheet

Fitted sheets serve as the protector of your bedding by covering your mattress. It’s vital to purchase the correct sheet sizes for your bed size since the edge measurements may be incorrect. Most fitted sheets are made with elastic edges to help keep everything in place.

  1. Put on the Flat Sheet 

 Flat sheets form a protective layer between yourself and your duvet, preventing body oils, dirt or sweat from transferring to your top layer. Whether you’re a team flat sheet or not, you can’t deny that finding the right material can be really beneficial.

How to use:

  • Spread the flat sheet across your mattress in the same direction as your bedding.
  • In the same direction as your bedding, lay the flat sheet across your mattress.
  • Check that the top edge of your top sheet is aligned with the top of your mattress.
  • Fold the bottom of your top sheet under your white bed sheets.
  1. Place the Comforter 

Although some people might confuse the terms comforter and duvet, these two styles of top-layer bedding are actually quite different. A duvet is made of an insert and a cover, much like a pillow and pillowcases, while a comforter is a single quilted piece of bedding that lies on top of your sheets. Duvets are typically easier to wash since you can toss them in the laundry, but putting on a duvet cover isn’t always an easy process. Although comforters don’t need to be assembled, they may need special laundry, even though they only need to be washed occasionally because most individuals who have comforters use flat sheets.

  1. Add Pillows 

Once your sheets are in order, you can begin styling your bed. The size and type of pillows you use can make a difference when you’re determining how to make a bed. Heavier pillows can make a great base pillow, while lighter materials like down pillows are perfect for use as focal pillows because they are so light. Remember that styling your pillows adds the perfect finishing touch when making your bed.
