Best Ways to Make Your Bed

One of the best things about the Art of Home is creating a space that will make others wish they lived there. For most, there’s no more enviable spot than a clean and cozy-looking bed.

And, with daylight saving time making us all “spring forward” an hour this Sunday, it’s time to hop out of bed and get started on those bed-making skills. Follow these great tips below and don’t let yourself snooze through all of that warm weather and longer daylight hours on the horizon!   

We get it, daylight saving time doesn’t mean you have to get out of bed yet. And who could blame you on the first day? However, PureWow has figured out an ingenious way to make your bed while you’re still in it! Check it out.


If you’re looking for easy, step-by-step instructions to follow for a neatly made bed with the perfect hospital corners, look no further than WikiHow. We guarantee it will be foolproof! 

Maybe you’ve already got a tried-and-true method, but did you know that there are some bed making mistakes you could be making? The fine people at House Beautiful have a few tips on what and what not to do. 

It just wouldn’t be a good home post without some input from the stylish minds over at Houzz, who show you how to incorporate all of your extra throws and pillows. Get your bed hotel-level ready — and maybe even good enough to bounce a quarter off of!


This video from the original home expert, Martha Stewart, will inspire you to properly make your bed every morning with two top sheets instead of a fitted sheet and a top sheet. Once you master it, you can move on to other Martha-like activities, such as crafts and baking in the afternoon.


PureWow also has a professional way to make your bed for the overachiever. Hint: It includes an iron.
