There is nothing more satisfying than a made bed. That's why we're laying out the best how-to guide for making a perfectly made bed!
Nothing makes your bed more fit for a king (or queen!) than a mattress pad. These budget-friendly additions are perfect for helping to extend the life of your mattress, while also adding a. comfortable plush padding.
Adding a fitted sheet over your mattress is one of the most important factors of a well-made bed. This breathable layer is a standard for most beds, and it's sizing is the most important detail. To find the right fit, measure the depth of your mattress from top seam to bottom seam in several places. Use those measurements as a guide when picking a sheet set.
A top sheet is a crucial factor for a well-made bed, as it is the first item you lay under. Make sure when picking a sheet set with a thread count high enough to meet your comfort standards. Anywhere from 200 to 800 thread count should be enough. Then, choose a type of fabric that suits your personal preference. Cotton is durable and breathable, fleece is warm for winter, and polyester is wrinkle-resistant.
A comforter is the centre piece of your bed, so look for one that suits your personal style as well as your comfort taste. Consider care instructions when buying different fabrics and fills, as they will hold up differently in the washing machine. A down-filled comforter lasts longer but attracts allergens and is more difficult to launder than synthetic versions.
There's no doubt that pillows can make your bed go from simple to chic in seconds, but it's important to factor in comfort over style. Keep sleeping pillows simple by choosing cases that are neutral or match your bedding, while decorative pillows can provide you with a personal flair.
