How to Make a Bed So Fast and Easy Even Kids Can Do It!

As adults, we know how to make a bed and it’s no problem but teaching our kids to make their beds is another story. So, I’m going to teach you today how I learned to make a bed faster. This works for anyone who just wants to make the bed, nothing fancy. It’s a big accomplishment to start the day with a made bed.

When I was still single, getting out of bed and making my bed was piece of cake. I do not move around when I sleep, so I don’t mess up the covers. I would lay down, close my eyes, go to sleep and I would wake up in the same position I had when I fell asleep. And then, I would take the covers off, get out of bed and tuck the covers back over. And, Voila! My bed is made. It was so easy.

Then I got married and my husband didn’t sleep like that. When he sleeps, I don’t even know what he does. But, he thrashes around, and kicks the covers off. And I swear he stands up, fillets the comforter from the sheet, and turns them sideways. I think that he literally pulls off the pillowcases from the pillows. The bed is a MESS!

Seriously, what is the man doing at night?

And when I wake up, the bed is a disaster and I don’t know what happened. It’s like a whirlwind had hit my bed in the middle of the night. So now, I’ve got this entire mess of a bed that I have to make every morning, and, surely, I didn’t like it. This lead me to develop a new way to make your bed in a more effortless and faster way. And I taught it to my kids and it’s a piece of cake for them too, so I’m going to teach that to you.

4 Easy Steps to make your bed

Traditionally, when we’re faced with a rumpled bed, we have to take everything off, including the comforter, top sheet and other beddings, which is an immense pain. So, I’m going to teach you how I make the bed after my husband has slept in the bed. Take note that you will do this easy technique while you’re still on your bed.

Step 1: Find the top part of your bedsheet

Find the thin sheet and make sure that you are holding the top part of the sheet. And, line it up with the top part of the comforter. Apply the lining up process on all corners.

Step 2: Spread the beddings over your bed

Once you have the sheet and comforter together, spread it over your bed. Sometimes I flip on one side and do another on the other side to help the sheet and comforter line up together. I swear that this activity will be fun for your kids.

Step 3: Fold the top part forward

Pull up the covers and fold the top part forward. Then you can climb down the bed.

Step 4: Finishing touches

Straighten up the top and the bottom beddings (if needed).

Then you’ll have a beautifully made bed in half the time.

This process is not how to make a bed perfect perfectly, or even the hotel way to make a bed. It’s how you or your kids can get a bed made fast and an easy way to have a well-kept room.
