- The top edge should hit the top of the mattress and the bottom and sides will hang over a bit.
- Tuck the end of the the fitted sheet into the mattress until it fits taut between the mattress and box spring.
Making the bed in the morning is one common factor in everyone's household. Some people love it while others dread that extra step in the morning routine. I personally do not like making the bed in the morning. However, I love getting into a made bed at night, especially one that has just been laundered. Have you ever asked yourself, "how do I properly make a bed?" Here a few steps from the pros... Step 1: Strip the bed down to the mattress, if you currently don’t have a bamboo mattress pad this is a great time to put that on. Step 2: The fitted Egyptian cotton sheet, this has elastic around it so that is will stay on the mattress. Put the top two corners on first and smooth out any wrinkles as you move down the bed. Pull the sheet over the bottom corner, continue to smooth and pull over last corner. The fitted sheet sometimes can be a little tricky and you may need someone to help. Step 3: The flat Egyptian cotton sheet, this is the top sheet. Lay the top sheet over the fitted sheet, spread it evenly over the bed. Some like to lay the finish side face down, so when the sheets are folded back you see the design correctly with printed sheets. If you have a solid sheet this does not matter.
