This Hotel Bed-Making Secret Will Transform Your Room Into a Chic Escape
If you've ever stayed at a hotel and thought to yourself, "Why does this bed look so much fluffier and more inviting than mine does at home?" you're not the only one. The crisp linen sheets and down pillows definitely help, but there's also a tried-and-true bed-making secret that's the main culprit behind the added fluff: two duvets. Adding two comforters can not only make your bed look better, but it'll also make it feel better (read: super cozy). TikToker @the_avantgarde_ made a video with easy step-by-step instructions on how to make your bed look just as cozy as one at a hotel. Here's how:
- First, smooth out the bottom and top sheets.
- Then, fold the top sheet over.
- Place one duvet on top of another, and fold them both over twice.
- If you have a king-size bed, @the_avantgarde_ suggests using four king-size pillows and two rectangular ones to add some volume.
- Your work here is done!
You'll notice that your bed looks instantly more inviting, as the duvets give it a cloud-like volume. If you really want to make your bed look exceptional, try doing hospital corners (also known as military corners) to achieve a tidy look every time. This trick involves tucking a fitted sheet under the bottom of the mattress in a way that'll keep it secured and wrinkle-free. (This tutorial is super helpful!) Once you've added your two duvets, you'll feel like you're on vacation every time you lay your head down. Beauty sleep, here we come!
