A clean bed with everything in place.

When your visitors pull the duvet of the nicely made up bed and find a creased and wrinkled mess, it can surely turn them off. Even if you are there in place of your guest, you would surely get irritated seeing the wrinkled sheets. Although an optional step, when you think of how to make a bed, try ironing the sheets and pillow covers to avoid wrinkles on your linens. It is advisable to check the care tag to find out the right heat setting for the fabric of your bed sheets and covers.

Step 2 – Fix the Fitted Sheets

Start by tucking the fitted sheet at one corner of the bed. Then, move to the diagonally opposite of the tucked in corner. Repeat the same with the other two corners of the fitted sheet as well to ensure that the mattress is completely covered. Check with your hand if any part of the sheet is bundled or bunched together. Smooth it out across the mattress including the corners.

Step 3 – Drape the Top Sheet

The top sheet can be a printed or solid color one. The specific style is a matter of taste, and the decision is up to you. Once decided, drape the bed with the top sheet and check if the edges of the top sheet are equal on both the sides. Finally, tuck the corners of the sheet under the mattress.

Step 4 – Add Blankets and Duvets

When you want to learn how to make a bed, the addition of a blanket is one of the easiest steps as you just need to repeat the steps of the flat sheet. If you want to tuck the corners of your sheet or not is completely up to you, but just smooth out the blanket when you follow the steps. The addition of a comforter or a duvet is something you should look out for. Place the duvet over the bed and ensure that it hangs from both the sides evenly. It should look neat and clean, so smooth out any crease or wrinkle on the duvet. Then, you may cover the mattress by firmly placing the duvet over it or leave the blanket half visible by folding the duvet in thirds. You may decide it as per your choice.

Step 5 – Add Flare by Including Pillows

The last and final step of how to make a bed is to add some pillows. By smoothing out the pillow covers and placing them rightly with the embellished or decorative side toward the outer direction. This is enough for a minimalist look but if you are looking for a loud look, add shams capped with vibrant accent pillows.
