You should always make sure to make your bed everyday before leaving for work so that when you return home, you can slip into the neatly made bed and relax.
STEP 1. Mattress Cover
Start off by covering the mattress with a cotton mattress cover to protect it from dirt, dust, spills and stains. Besides protection, a mattress cover also provides an an extra layer of comfort so it’s a must have!
STEP 2. Fitted sheet or Bottom sheet
Next important step is to put a fitted sheet or a bottom sheet over the mattress cover. Take the bottom sheet and spread it over the mattress so that it sits smoothly on top of the mattress, without any wrinkles or creases and tuck the sheet tightly around the corners of the mattress.
To make sure the sheet doesn’t slip off the bed and for that crisped finishing, after tucking in the sheet on the sides, grab the corner of the sheet, lift it up and create a diagonal crease. Holding the folded piece of sheet in place gently flip it on the left side and tuck in any sheet hanging below the mattress on the right side of the bed.
Next, flip the folded piece of sheet on the right side and tuck in any sheet hanging below the mattress on that side of the bed. Do this as neatly as possible for best results. The fold should look like a diagonal of a right triangle. Plz note, it’s not hospital corners fold. Will tell you how to do that in another video.
STEP 3. Blanket/comforter/duvet
Cover your comforter or blanket with a duvet cover to protect it from dust and spills and spread it over the mattress.
Make sure to spread it evenly over the bed, with the same amount of overhang on each side of the bed. Now, tuck in the sides of the comforter under the mattress just how you did the bottom sheet and you are almost done!
Take the edge of the comforter at the head of the bed and neatly fold it back. It should be about 5-6 inches away from the edge of the head of the bed. You can also make a double fold if you want. If you like, you can tuck the edges of the folded blanket underneath the mattress or leave it as it is.
STEP 4. Finish with sleep pillows
