How to Make your Bed Beautifully
As we all know we try and try again to make our bed without all the wrinkles and issues but it never turns out as beautifully as we want it to. We can never get our beds to look like a hotel bed or in the pictures. However, there are a few simple steps you can follow to ensure your bed is not only made but made beautifully.
First, you are going to want to remove all the pillows and blankets from the bed. Leave the fitted sheet on. You are now going to want to pull the fitted sheet tight from both sides at the top near the headboard. This will smooth out any wrinkles in the material. If there are still ripples use your hands to smooth out any remaining ripples.
Second, reveal the bottom sides of your bed. You can do this by pulling the duvet or quilt up. This will make sure that the corners and bedding sides are neatly tucked away under your mattress. It is recommended that you use a hospital corner to tuck your blankets in.
Now you are going to bring whatever blankets you are doing up to the headboard. Make them tight and square at the top of the mattress. Make sure you have equal parts falling over the side.
Now you can turn down your top layer half way. Make it neat and then turn down the next layer over the first cover. Lastly, you turn down your sheet. Remember, put your blankets where you want the pretty side to show face down on the bed.
The next step is to add your pillows. You can add them how you like. Just ensure that they are placed neatly and in a desired position. You can use decorative pillows as well as your sleeping pillows.
Lastly, throw a blanket such as a throw blanket or an extra quilt on the end of the bed. You can have it draped off the corner, pulled straight across, really you can have it any way you seem fit. This is up to you.
