Making a bed is a lifelong skill that everyone should be familiar with. There is no better way to begin your day because you will feel productive and prepared for anything. Plus, returning home to a freshly-made bed is ideal for de-stressing and unwinding.
So, here’s a simple 3-step guide to making your bed perfectly:
1. Start with the base
The first and foremost thing you need to do is prepare the base, i.e., the mattress.
Although having a mattress pad or protector is optional. Covering your mattress would help you keep it stain-free and increase its durability.
2. Add the essentials
It’s time to add all the essentials to your bed. First, drape the fitted sheet over your mattress and any toppers, ensuring that all four corners are securely tucked in.
You can add a top sheet over it though it’s optional.
Now, add a comforter or any other layer over your sheets. The sides should be evenly hanging over the edges and folded to leave some space for the pillows.
Once done, place the pillows with covers to prevent them from staining.
3. Add ornaments
Finally, add some throw pillows and blankets over the bed to make it aesthetically pleasing. Depending on your choice, you can add up to 5 shams (or throw pillows) of round or square shape.
