I do because it makes the bedroom look nice and I like to crawl into a tidy bed at night.
I make mine everyday as I hate to make it before I go to bed at night.
I do too but today I was running late because... well I had to rush out but normally I make the bed.
I make my bed nearly every day. It does make the room look tidy, and I heard once, "A bed well made is a bed well slept (in)." That totally makes sense - I usually do sleep better when my bed is made when I crawl in it.
I use to be diligent about this, but then life happens and it happens early, so there's not always time
I have made a commitment to doing this every morning after I rise. I had a hard time doing this before but making it a routine has made it close to second-nature.
I see how a neat and tidy bed can make a room look nice or uplift its atmosphere even. There's also something nice about going to bed at night in an organized, clean bed just waiting for you.
I quickly make my bed in the morning just after brushing my teeth and having a bath. It's just really nice to be able to get into a nicely made bed in the evening and now that a friend had brought me a decorative pillow as a gift, I put that on the small table near it and not on the bed covers!
So a nicely made bed but which doesn't go well with the decorative pillow I was given - still it's found its place on a small table not too far away, haha.
It makes a difference seeing a nicely made bed at night though.
I lay corrected, there was one time in 97, sorry
I used to make it every day as it looks so nice all made up. But I recently learned that it is better to let the bed air out during the day. That works for me.
If you make your bed right when changing the sheets, making your bed every morning is a 5 sec. breeze.
I tend to air out the bed during the day. Given that you lose up to a pint of moisture into the sheets from your body heat each night, it really does make for a fresher bed than making it up and trapping all that effluvia.
And the cat has no complaints about an unmade bed. She likes to get in there and burrow about.
I like to make my bed every morning...it makes th eroom look nicer with the throw and matching cushions which are coordinated with the decor of the rom
I don't 'make' the bed in the morning, but I do throw the covers back over the bed. The loose covers allow air to circulate and freshen the bed better than replacing the covers every morning after getting up.
but you do tidy it up a bit, before you get in of course......
Well yes, I pull the quilt straight before getting in. Takes about one second.
My mother always insisted that beds were made, and I always wondered what harm an unmade bed could possibly do.
I like to leave it for most of the day, with the windows open to air it. That's not because I'm lazy in the morning, I just prefer the way it feels.
I sort of throw the covers over the bed, but I don't "tuck in the sheets" and such.
I'm a bit of a cave woman in the mornings, "does not function till had tea", hehehe! Then after that I'm ready for anything, even fluffing up the duvet xxx
Nope, don't make my bed regularly. The only time the bed is made is once a week when the sheets are washed. When putting fresh sheets on, I make the bed. Otherwise, each morning, I just throw the covers back over loosely as many of you do. No tucking, no fluffing...
I have matching sheet n pillow sets with a contrasting sheet. I fold the blankets over like a accordion n leave it at foot of the bed unroll it when goin sleep )
These days never!!!! But as I live in a hotel (part of my contract) its always made for me. It's a lovely treat.
When my bed is unmade at night I know I was extremely busy that morning.It usually is made as soon as I have my coffee.
WOW! Until I saw this thread I thought most people make their beds in the morning. If I leave my bed unmade I'm usually sick, and even then I can't sleep unless I get out of bed and make it up. I then walk around it for a few minutes before getting back in it.
I get up hours before my wife. I clean the kitchen, run the dishwasher, neaten up the living room and might do a little dusting. When she gets up, I go in and makeup the bed while she is in the bathroom.
Holy smokes! The rule in our house is last one out has to make the bed
My wife has some physical problems. I like to do as much as possible so that she does not have to.
It is sweet. Never had a chance to meet a man like that, never thought a man like that existed. Nice.
Pcunix - you are a gem! Wow!
Can you write a model husband Hub for me to send to my new hubby? He is great but making the bed too! Wow!
The only time I make my bed is when I am changing the bedclothes. After that, I don't bother, until it is time to change the sheets again, which I do every year, whether they need it or not.
I usually make it in the middle of the day - like - when I get done working on my writing - then I clean the house
Bed must be made every morning. Otherwise the room isn't tidy.
No, I don't.
I think that is the responsibility of the woman who owns the house I am slithering out of while she sleeps
I make my bed as soon as I get out of it. Habit from childhood to save time and not have to think about it before going to school. Now I can't possibly cope unless the bed is made.
Me me me, I like it made up, then my baby will jump and scatter all over...
I don't make it in the morning; I'm part of the airing-out-the-sheets crowd. But either my partner or I makes it when we get home from work, so it is made by the time we go back to bed.
Mom always told me to make my bed first thing in the morning. Her philosophy was it required discipline, lessened chaos, helped you feel more in control, and put you in a better mood.
I think she was right. Since I started making my bed every day, it has been easier to keep the house tidy overall, and it definitely improves my mood not to live in a messy house.
I doubt I'll go down in history for making my bed look nice every day so no I don't do that. Meh!
I make my bed up every morning before I eat breakfast. I have been doing this since the age of six.
I very rarely make the bed...my mum says it stems from my childhood when it took us a year to sell our house and I had to make my bed every single day and I would say 'after we move, I'm never making my bed again' and it pretty much stuck I guess! I like to let it air out, but I do tidy and straighten the sheets and when I change the sheets, I'll make the bed properly.
I don't make my bed unless I am showing my house or have guests coming over. Truth be told when I go to a hotel I actually throw off all of the extra sheets and pillows and grab one blanket from the bed and lie down (Usually I bring my own flat pillow).
Guess I'm just a simpleton.
I do that everyday. Infact for the past twenty years I ve been making my bed. nice n clean
I try. I take naps during the day-health related-and enjoy the comfort of a made bed.
"How many of us make it messy", or "how many of us make it neat?"
It depends which you are asking!
My husband makes the bed every morning. Not too well, I might add. That's funny...
I do... Every morning! It is exhausting, I don't like to sleep in my bed since I'm making it up! ))
I make my bed about 95% of the time...maybe not first thing, but at some point within the day. I like to crawl into a freshly made bed, but I make it more so because my kids will crawl onto my bed (sometimes without but mostly with little shoes which come with mud) I would rather not wash my sheets on a daily bases...makes the electric bill sky rocket
almost never..maybe because I spend most of my life traveling
I'm with Frieda on this one. I diligently made my bed every morning. A well dressed bed, actually makes a room look good, even if other things aren't tidy. BUT then I stopped, and now could care less.
i do, cos my mom says it is unauspicious to touch the bed after you woke up......unless you feel drowsy and need a bed again..........i still think it sucks...
I barely ever make my bed. I make it if someone's coming round so it looks nice, but otherwise I don't bother. I figure it's just going to get messed up again that night.
Only when I'm in someone else's home, or when I'm in a situation where I am absolutely required to. (Having guests to your place is a good time as well. Don't think for a second that your bedroom is off limits to guests.)
i stopped doing that a few years ado, drives the little woman nuts
I learned in college to make my bed every day - it doesn't feel like the day has started until the bed is made and the dishes are clean.
I just pull the comforter up over the pillows unless I am expecting company.
Although I say in my previous post on this thread that I never make my bed, because it seems a complete waste of time, I just remembered the time before quilts/duvets were popular. Back then, we had blankets and sheets that would become a tangled mess that was totally impossible to sleep in if the bed wasn't made every day.
My mother taught me how to make a bed as meticulously as is done in a hospital - and how tedious that was every single day ...
I usually leave the bed to the animals in the daytime, and sleep in it at night. I use a couple of dogs as blankets on a cold night, and the cat to keep my belly warm. I did make the bed some years ago, but until the mice move in I don't wash the sheet, but when I do I'll make the bed again.
This reminds me of a neighbour I had. He was about sixty and always immaculately turned out in that Blake Carrington sort of style.
One day, a water pipe burst in his flat when he wasn't home. The door had to be forced open and ...
Inside, the walls were a nasty yellowish brown, there was a yellowed calender with naked ladies on the wall from 1972, every inch of floor was occupied with piles of old newspapers and magazines, I won't go into what they found in the bathroom, and the bed clothes were black with grime. I can't imagine he would have slept in them, but I guess he did, because there would have been nowhere else to sleep in all the mess.
