I've been wanting to redecorate my room for a while now, but have hesitated because I didn't want to spend money on a new bedspread. The other night I stayed in a hotel where they "triple sheeted" my bed and I enjoyed how that felt and looked. Is there a proper way to make a bed this way? Or does anyone have other ideas?
Why would anyone triple sheet a bed? Especialy a Hotel?? Do they think the two underneath stay clean? I think not. I wouldnt want to sleep on a sheet that was under one somone er.. two used the night before.. yuk!!
I don't think the last post was meant to be funny but ... lol
A triple sheeted bed is a fitting sheet, sheet and then sheet over the top blanket. The two upper work similar to a duvet cover so instead of buying an expensive new bedspread, you can cover w/ a much cheaper sheet! To get a cool patter you could buy fabric instead of a sheet.
And an additional to the last comment - triple sheeting can be much more sanitary for hotels since some hotels do not require laundering of bedspreads after each guest, only sheets!
Thank you, that was so much more helpful!
This isn't really an answer to your question but it might help you redecorate your bedroom. Try the craigslist.org in your area. I have found incredible deals..for example a king size flannel sheet set that had been slept on once for $15.00 because they didn't like them.
PS. I'm glad to know how to triple sheet as well. It does have a nice feel to it. Blessings!
I can see the idea, but why not just sew the two sheets together and make the duvet? I bartered and got a seamstress to make my duvet. Now we use just the fitted sheet with a comforter inside the duvet. We wash the fitted sheet and the duvet. It is so much easier to make the bed. You just throw the duvet on the bed, no tucking sheets and blankets, etc. And if you travel much, I would invest in a sleep bag that you carry with you to sleep in a motel.
My mother does this.
1)Put the fitted sheet and the flat sheet on the bed the normal way.
2)Put the blanket on top of the flat sheet but don't turn the flat sheet down yet.
3)Put the second flat sheet on top of the blanket with the top of the sheet even with the top of the blanket.
4)THEN turn the top of the first flat sheet down over both the blanket and the second fitted sheet.
5)Tuck in the sheets/blankets at the bottom of the bed.
If I understand this 'triple sheeting' thing, I agree with Ariela,YUK!
What color combos do you use?
I am sorry guys but I had to read this no less than four times to understand the final step! Let's see. When all is said and done I should have one solid piece right? Some of my queen sheets are rather big when I bring my fitted sheet up and over the third sheet will this not be lumpy? Thanks, Carla
Man, I don't know why I didn't get it the first time I read it. But Katie A's post set it in my head. A friend made a duvet
cover using sheets. She put an old blanket inside 2 sheets but instead of sewing it closed she sewed on buttons; made it easy to launder. But she didn't tack the blanket in place so I don't know what keeps the blanket from bunching up.
I work at a hotel I am a housekeeper and yes triple sheeting is nice but takes a lot longer then the usual bedspread anyways put your fitted sheet on tight then your flat sheet to meet at the top of the bed then your blanket about 12 inches or more if you prefer down from the flt sheet then put your next flat sheet about 2inches over the blanket fold over the the top flat sheet then fold bottom flat over blanket and sheet tuck top sides in. then go to bottom of bed tuck in then you do all sides then put your decorative blanket folded at the foot of the bed. I do this on my bed too looks so neat and feels great.
