I never really did until I went to college and was pretty much living in one room in the dorms, then I was using my bed for more than sleeping. Now it is just habit and I have to make it everyday or my bedroom just looks and feels off. Though I notice when I go home to visit my parents and sleep in my childhood bedroom, I don't make my bed...

ALWAYS - if not when I get up, then right before I got to bed I make it!

lol, i try to! does that count? my dogs like to snuggle under my comforter and end up messing it up again, so it doesn't really pay.

My partner makes the bed as he gets up later... so I guess he is my gnome.

I'd do it more often if a) i lived alone (when i get up, my bf is still in bed), or b) i ever went back into the bedroom after getting up in the morning (all my clothes are in the other bedroom).

I can't cope with an unmade bed. =)

i make it when i do my major weekly clean.. and sometimes during the week i'll make it.. its just a duvet so it doesn't take toooo much.. but by the time i get home.. i know im just gonna get in it in a few hours.. so why make it??.. i just make sure it's all straightened out when i go to bed... so the boyfriend doesn't steal ALL the covers!

I make it as I'm sliding out of's practically done by the time I stand up! Just have to add more pillows.

I make it after I change the sheets and vow that I'll make everyday after that. And I do make it...the next time I change the sheets.

Always! I just have a duvet and pillows so there isn't much to it. I think a room looks untidy if the bed isn't made.

It really depends if I'm running late or not. Since I'm usually running late my poor bed suffers.

I'm bad because I rarely do. The only time I really do it is if my husband is going to be home. (He works out of town)

There's something about slipping into a nicely decorated done bed. *sigh* Wish I was there now....

Same boat as Twinkle. I learned a long time ago that with my early morning starts + the fact that I am NOT a morning person, I needed to minimize the layers. So I decorate with a lot of pillows and have a duvet or a quilt (if it's summer). Straighten it out, plop the pillows in place and ::Poof:: I'm out of the house! :)

Messy bed- messy head!

I have a flat sheet and a comforter/duvet. I also believe in airing out the bed, so "making the bed" for me is fluffing the comforter and leaving it doubled over the foot of the bed (ready to pull up when I go back to bed that evening). Generally, I do this in the not-quite-awake-still-on-autopilot stage before I get into the shower.

I always make the bed, but not always in the morning :P

When we are having people over or I am cleaning, I will make the bed. I don't make it on a regular basis though.

Always! I can't relax if my bed is not made.
