What's the best way to make your bed with Stay-Tucked Sheets?


At Kitelinens, we believe making your bed the right way is a lifelong skill that everyone should learn early in life. As entrepreneurs like Tim Ferriss and US Navy four-star Admiral William H. McRaven will attest, there is no better way to start your day than making your bed because it leaves you feeling accomplished and ready for anything. At a time when many of us are working from home and spending more time at home than ever before, a nicely-made bed is even more important. 

Making your bed is a lot like getting yourself (and your little ones!) dressed in the morning. You start with something underneath (like a mattress pad or protector) then layer on the basics, and finish up with accessories. 

So, what’s the best way to make your bed? We like to keep the routine of bed-making as quick and efficient as possible - that’s why we invented Stay-Tucked Sheets! - but you could absolutely use Kitelinens as part of a luxurious, accessorized-to perfection bed worthy of a full-page spread in a decorating magazine. If you like to keep your bed aesthetic simple and minimalist, Kitelinens Stay-Tucked Sheets are the perfect sheet choice as well.

No matter your aesthetic preferences or how little time you have in the morning, we’ve got you covered with some basics for bed making that everyone can follow. Don’t let an unmade bed be a distracting eyesore during the day, and encourage your kids to become routine bed-makers before they begin the school day.

Read on to learn the best way to make a bed so that you and your family members can reap the benefits of better wake-ups, better sleep, time saved, and a more organized daily routine.

The best way to to make your bed is to start with the most comfortable cotton sheets. Folding and tucking your sheets is the most time-consuming part of making your bed neatly. If you’re using traditional sheets and want a perfectly made bed, you’ll spend a lot of time perfecting “hospital corners” and bending over and lifting up your mattress every morning in the process! 

That’s where Kitelinens comes in. Using Kitelinens Stay-Tucked Sheets means pulling your sheets up once is about far as you need to go to organize your sheets neatly every day. No need to spend the time folding those perfect hospital corners. When you put your Kitelinens organic cotton sheets on the bed and only tuck once. Because of their special hybrid design, you won’t need to mattress lift again until it’s time to clean the sheets in your laundry cycle. With our sheets, there’s no more excuses for not starting your day with a neatly made bed. 

A Kitelinens sheet set includes a fitted sheet that won’t come off and a hybrid top sheet with a patent-pending design that prevents it from coming untucked and getting lost in your bedding overnight. You can shop Kitelinens cotton bed sheets on sale for all the beds in your house here:

Straighten out your blanket(s). After you’ve pulled up your premium cotton sheet, it’s time to make your other blankets, quilt or duvet neat. After you’ve centered these blankets on your bed you can simply leave the blankets and sheet flat on your bed, or you can fold back the top area to expose your fitted sheet - up to you!

Place your pillows. After you’ve gotten your Kitelinens pure cotton bed sheets and blanket layering sorted, you can place your pillows at the head of the bed. If you folded over your sheets/blankets, then your pillows will be directly on top of your fitted sheet. If you didn’t fold, then they go right on top of your top blanket/duvet layer. If you have a headboard and the head of your bed against a wall, then pillows look best propped up against it. Complete Kitelinens Stay-Tucked Sheet Sets come with two pillowcases. Feel free to keep it simple or add pillow shams that match your quilt/duvet for a polished, complete look.

Extras for a well-made bed. At Kitelinens, we’re all about simplicity and efficiency. Generally, we believe less is more when it comes to establishing a good sleep and wake-up routine. That said, many people feel their bed is incomplete without some curated accessories. Here are a few of the most common extras that many people would include when explaining the best way to make your bed:

  • Mattress Protector. Encasing your mattress in a zippered mattress protector prevents the accumulation of millions of dust mites and other debris in your mattress over the years. A mattress protector that not only protects from dust mites, pollen, and other household allergens but is also waterproof (a must with kids!) can significantly extend the life of your mattress.
  • Mattress Toppers. A mattress topper adds a layer of extra comfort to your bed. Though it won’t show when your bed is made, you may like it for extra comfort if your sleep preference is for a softer feeling mattress. A fair warning for hot sleepers though - many report the addition of a mattress topper makes them sleep hotter at night.
  • Throw Pillows. If you want to give your made bed an extra polished and luxurious look, then you’ll want to add some throw pillows. According to GH, five decorative pillows is the ideal number to make your bed look full but not overly crowded, and mixing and matching with square, oblong or rolled pillows in coordinating fabrics is ideal and encouraged.
  • Throw Blanket. Whether it’s minimals and a solid color or a textured fabric with an interesting feel, a throw blanket can help complete your bed’s look and tie the bedroom together. If you add a throw blanket, fold it horizontally that way it’s easy to use in the middle of the night if you get cold and reach for it as an extra layer.
  • Bed Skirt. Not every bed needs a bed skirt, but you may consider using one if your bed has an exposed metal frame and you’d like to conceal the frame and casters. You may also want to use a skirt if you’re using the space underneath your bed to store things like out-of-season clothing, sporting goods, or other bulky items.
