How To Make Your Bed
Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom; making it look as beautiful and inviting as possible can transform your whole space. If you want to achieve the look you see in stores, there are a few things you’ll need to know. Here’s how it’s done:Getting The Sheets On
Make sure your sheets are as clean and wrinkle-free as possible. Put the fitted sheet on the mattress, making sure to get the elastic under each corner. Tuck in the sides while smoothing everything out. Next take your top sheet and lay it on, leaving enough length at the top to fold it over. Make sure the overhang is about equal all over. Then tuck your top sheet in all around. Keep it smooth and lump-free.
Adding the final layer of bedding is key in creating a sumptuous bed. You’ll need a comforter or duvet, blankets, pillow shams and maybe a bedskirt. You can get most of this in one package with coordinated comforter sets.
Fluff up your comforter and lay it on the bed. It should cover the mattress and sheets completely. Check that the overhang is equal on all sides. Fold the comforter over at the head. Put pillows into matching shams and add them. Fluff up your other pillows and pile them on. Decorative pillows should be in various sizes to create interest. As a finishing touch, lay a beautiful blanket, throw or quilt along the bottom edge of the bed.
