7 steps to make your bed like a pro
Have you ever wondered how to make a bed that looks neat and cosy? A well-made bed can make your bedroom feel more inviting and help you sleep better at night. But making a bed can seem like a daunting task, especially if you're not sure where to start. Don't worry, we've got you covered! Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make a bed that will make you feel proud.
Step 1: Strip the bed
The first thing you need to do is strip all the bedding off the bed. This means removing the sheets, pillowcases, and any other bedding you may have on the bed. If your bedding needs a wash, now is the perfect time to do it.
Step 2: Put on the fitted sheet
The fitted sheet is the first layer of your bedding. Start by placing it over the mattress and making sure it fits snugly around the corners. Smooth out any wrinkles or creases on the sheet to ensure a comfortable sleeping surface. Nothing worse than sliding sheets in the middle of the night!
Step 3: Add the flat sheet (optional)
The flat sheet goes on top of the fitted sheet. Make sure the sheet is centred on the bed with an equal amount of overhang on both sides. Tuck the sheet under the mattress at the foot of the bed and make the 'hospital corners' for neat and tidy look.
Step 4: Add a waterproof bed mat
No matter your age, this is crucial to protect your mattress and sheet from any liquids. Be it drinks, sweat, periods or urine. PeapodMats lay on top of the bedsheet without straps and are 100% waterproof, protecting both your sheet and the mattress. They're also breathable, soft and don't make any crinkly sounds!
Step 5: Add the duvet
If you use a duvet cover, now it's time to put it on. Make sure your duvet is evenly distributed over the bed and straighten out any wrinkles or lumps. If you use a bedspread, lay it out evenly on the bed and smooth it out nicely.
Step 6: Add the pillows
Pillows are the finishing touch to your bed. Start with the largest pillows first and place them upright against the headboard. Then add any decorative cushions you have for that ultimate look.
Step 7: Tidy up
The final step is to tidy up the bed's surroundings. Straighten out any other linens or blankets you have in the room. If you use a bed skirt, make sure it's hanging evenly and neatly around the bed.
Now you know how to make a bed like a pro! A well-made bed gives you a feeling of accomplishment in the morning and can make all the difference in how you feel when you crawl into it at night. So go ahead, give it a try and see how much better you'll sleep tonight!
