Creating perfectly tucked and crisp hospital corners on your bed not only elevates the aesthetics of your bedroom but also ensures your sheets stay securely in place. Follow these five simple steps to achieve a polished and professional look with your bed-making skills.
Step 1: Lay Your Sheet and Blanket
Start by spreading your fitted sheet on the mattress, ensuring it's even on all sides. Lay your flat sheet and blanket on top, aligning the top edges with the mattress's top edge.
Step 2: Tuck the Bottom
Begin at the foot of the bed. Lift the mattress and tuck the excess fabric under the mattress, creating a 45-degree angle fold at the corner.
Step 3: Create the Hospital Fold
Stand on one side of the bed and grab the sheet and blanket. Hold them taut and create a 45-degree angle fold at the corner, forming a triangular flap of fabric.
Step 4: Tuck and Tighten
While holding the fold, tuck the hanging fabric neatly under the mattress. Make sure the triangular flap is sharp and neat.
Step 5: Side Tucking
Move to the side of the bed and repeat steps 3 and 4. Pull the triangular flap towards the center of the bed and create a diagonal fold along the side. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the bed. Smooth out any wrinkles on the top of the bed and adjust the edges for a clean look.
With a little practice, you'll be able to master the technique of creating impeccable hospital corners. Your bed will not only become a haven of comfort but also a showcase of your attention to detail. See it in action and follow along!
