Hospital Corners

There’s a reason hospital and hotel employees know how to perfectly make a bed -- they do it hundreds of times each day.

A hospital corner is an efficient way to keep the sheets tucked into the foot of the bed. Start by spreading a flat sheet over the bed, and topping it with a cotton blanket. Tuck the bottom edges under the mattress.

Nice and Neat

Tuck in the sides to create a neat crease at the corners of the mattress.

Fold and Tuck

At the head of the bed, fold back the cotton blanket (about a pillow’s distance down).

Fold the sheet back over the blanket, and smooth it out. (The sheet should hide the hem of the blanket.) Tuck in the sheet and blanket all the way to the foot of your bed.

Blanket Statements

Spread the coverlet over the blanket, and fold it (in thirds) to the foot of the bed, leaving some of the blanket exposed. Layer your pillows however you like at the head of the bed.

Comfort and Joy

If you choose to use a duvet, spread it over the coverlet, and fold it (in thirds) to the foot of the bed. It will add a note of cushiony softness to your irresistible retreat.
