How to Make Your Bed Properly: Key Steps

Making your bed properly is a skill that transforms your sleeping space into a haven of rest. The process is straightforward and rewarding. Follow these steps to transform your space and your mood.

Protect The Mattress With A Mattress Protector

Start by safeguarding your mattress with a mattress protector. This step is crucial for creating an effective barrier against moisture, spills, and allergens, thus extending the lifespan of your mattress and maintaining a hygienic sleep environment​​​​.

First, remove any bedding from your mattress. Then, take your mattress protector and unfold it. Align the protector with the corners of your mattress, ensuring that the elastic edges or deep pockets are facing downwards. Gently pull the protector over each corner, similar to how you would with a fitted sheet.

Make sure it's evenly distributed across the mattress surface without any bunching or loose areas.

Our research indicates that when selecting a mattress protector, you should consider its material and features. A high-quality protector should have a breathable top layer and elasticized corners to prevent slipping. Our waterproof mattress protector is specifically crafted to match.

It features jumbo elastic for a secure fit on mattresses up to 18 inches deep. Its waterproof and spill-proof qualities provide comprehensive protection against liquids and stains, while the noiseless design ensures a peaceful sleep.

Use A Fitted Sheet Between You And The Mattress.

Start by laying the fitted sheet over your mattress and the protector. It will help shield your mattress from wear and tear, stains, and sweat, maintaining a hygienic sleep environment.

Begin at one end, stretching the fitted sheet's elasticized pocket over one corner. Move to the opposite corner and repeat the process, all the while making sure that the sheet creates a smooth surface. Simply repeat on the opposite end of the mattress, and you're done!

Just make sure you secure the sheets under the mattress, or else you'll be left worrying about how to keep sheets tucked in.

At California Design Den, we offer a 600 Thread Count 100% Cotton Sateen fitted sheet (available in a twin fitted sheet, queen fitted sheet, and beyond) made from pure cotton. This wonder epitomizes a blend of luxury and practicality. It is tested for pilling, shrinkage, and color fastness, ensuring its durability and quality.

Add A Flat Sheet To Keep The Blanket Dirt-Free

To keep your blanket clean and prolong its lifespan, place a flat sheet between yourself and the blanket.

Those of you who are new to the flat sheet may be wondering how to use flat sheet. Start by spreading the flat sheet evenly over the fitted sheet, aligning it with the top of the mattress.

Check that the sides of the sheet are equally draped over the sides of the bed. Tuck the bottom of the flat sheet under the mattress, leaving the top end loose so it can be folded over the blanket.

But what does a flat sheet do? Our findings show that the big plus of using a flat sheet is its ability to help you regulate your temperature. Simply throw off the blankets if you're overheating or add a flat sheet for extra warmth.

Our 600 Thread Count 100% Cotton Sateen flat sheet is an ideal choice. Made in our factory in India, it adheres to world-class manufacturing standards, certified by OEKOTex and GOTS to prove it.

Make It Cozy With A Blanket

A blanket can make a world of difference to your comfort and warmth. To properly place a blanket, lay it evenly over the bed, aligning it with the top edge of the mattress. Gently smooth it out to remove any wrinkles for a neat appearance.

If you're looking to upgrade your blanket experience, our cotton all-season knitted weighted blanket will hit the spot. It is made from sustainable materials, reflecting our commitment to the environment. The blanket will stay soft and comfortable while providing the right amount of warmth throughout the year.

Don't Forget A Comforter

No bed is complete without a comforter. Their layered construction, from outer shell to fill, is designed to keep you warm throughout the night. Begin by laying it over your bed, draping it evenly on all sides of the mattress. The comforter should cover the flat sheet and blanket beneath.

Adjust the comforter so that it sits without hanging too low or being too short on either side.

Our European down comforter is the epitome of comfort. It offers even thickness with no lumps or cold spots, thanks to its carefully designed fill distribution. Made from natural cotton, it is skin-friendly and leak-proof, ensuring a good night's sleep.

Decorate With Pillows And Throws

Sprucing up your bed with pillows and throws is an effortless way to enhance your aesthetic. Select your favorite pillows of varying sizes and arrange them on the bed.

For throws, drape one at the foot of the bed (or over a chair) for a touch of elegance. Based on our observations, this adds a visual appeal that will invite a sense of relaxation.

Remember to play with textures and colors to add depth and interest to your space. Throws can be a statement piece, adding a pop of color to the room.

Elevate the comfort and style of your bedroom with our gray throw blanket collection, made from ethically sourced 100% long-staple cotton, ensuring a hypoallergenic and skin-friendly experience.

For your head pillows (non-decorative), go with our 100% Egyptian Cotton Luxury Sateen pillowcase pair. They're designed with an envelope closure so that the pillows remain inside. These pillowcases are not just about aesthetics; they provide a soft skin feel, perfect for your much-needed rest.
