Black and White Bed
Making a bed has become one of those chores that very few people bother with, but a made bed has a dramatic impact on the way a room looks and feels.
It seems to be so easy to leave your bed a mess when you wake up – my son feels this way! After all, your only going to mess it up again latter on, right?
Here are a few simple steps to making your bed, and making your room appear less cluttered.
First, lets start with clean sheets – Take off the used linens and put them in the laundry, you should have at least two (2) complete set of sheets for each bed.
Put the Bottom Sheet On: Your bottom sheet should be the fitted one, simply slip the corner pockets onto the ends of the bed and adjust the fitted sheet around the perimeter of your mattress giving it a nice, taut appearance.
Add The Top Sheet: The top sheet is also called the flat sheet. Place the top sheet evenly on the bed, and fold under with hospital corners only at the end of the bed. I like to tuck my sides in giving it a nice clean look, but that is a personal choice. If you want to make a good impression on your Mother-In-Law, tuck the sides in. (What is a hospital corner: Act like you are wrapping a package with wrapping paper, tuck in the bottom and fold the side over and then tuck under the mattress.)
Add a Blanket, Comforter, or Duvet: Smooth your choice of blanket and/or Solid Color Comforter like the picture above, smoothing the edges evenly other the top of the bed.
Add Pillows: To place pillows under the blanket, fold the top sheet down over the blanket. Place your pillows flat on the top sheet at the head of the bed. Fold blanket over the pillows towards the head of the bed, and smooth. Pillows can also be laid upright against the head of the bed. Do what makes the bed have that finished “Trendy Bed Look” that you love.
TIP: Rotate your pillowcases twice a week, and your bottom sheet once a week. These items get the most wear and tear.
