Make Your Beds Much Neater

For many, making the bed in the morning can be a real chore. I know I would love to have a hotel maid come in and make mine every morning so I would not have to deal with arranging everything. Even those who have the energy to put the bed in order will often find that it does not look quite as nice as it could, especially compared to how some of those hotel beds are put together. If you are one of those people who want to make your bed look neater, look no further. This tip will help it all come together as it should.

The simplest way to make the bed look perfect is to put everything together in the way that they should go. Take your sheets, blankets, and bedspread, and line them all up in the way you want them on the bed. Then just put a little stitch through each item. The hardest part will be to make sure the stitch is in the correct place when you put it in. If you want to center everything, you can just fold each item in half and stitch it at the fold before lining the items up on the bed.

After you have added a stitch to the various coverings of the bed, all you have to do is line the stitches up together each time you make the bed. Then line all of this up with the headboard. You will make a perfect bed every time. If you want to add a little precision to your bed making, you can add another stitch at the center of the bottom of your sheets, blankets, and bedspread. That way, both the top and the bottom of all of your bedding will all line up straight. It will also make it easier to tuck any blankets you may want to tuck under the bed, because there will be an equal amount of bedding on both sides of the bed. This is perfect for couples who often fight over covers!
