Before you start making your bed, we recommend letting your sheets breathe during the rest of your morning routine. Simply keep your sheets open for around 30 minutes and open your curtains for some natural light. This will prevent dust mites from becoming trapped and building up, ensuring your bed remains clean after you make it.
Step 1: Place Euros on Bed
Start by returning any misplaced accessory cushions at the top of your bed, giving them a quick fluff.
Step 2: Fold Duvet Halfway Back
Flatten and pull your duvet to evenly cover your bed. Then, pull the top third over itself to reveal your sheets.
Step 3: Straighten Your Sheets
Pull your freshly revealed sheets to the sides and top of your bed and smooth out any folds or wrinkles.
Step 4: Fold Duvet Back Onto Itself
Unfold your duvet to cover the sheets, with a slight 6” to 10” fold over your pillows for a little extra flair.
Step 5: Smooth Out Remaining Wrinkles
With your duvet now spread across your bed, and brush off any remaining wrinkles with your hands.
