Simple Pleasures - A Well Made Bed

I understand that there are those who feel making a bed each day is a waste of time.  "Why go to all that trouble when you're just going to get back in it," they reason.


Maybe it's just me, but it just does something for me to see a bed with pretty linens all smooth, pillows plumped and ready for me to plop in.  A tangled mess of sheets never makes me feel good about climbing in bed.




Often when I come home from work and go into my bedroom to change clothes, I'll glance longingly at my bed.  It looks so inviting!  I want to just slide on top of that comforter and have a little shut-eye time. It's just a simple pleasure ....

Yes, this is indeed a wonderful simple pleasure! I like having a well-made bed, too.

I like to make my bed every morning too. Like you say crumpled sheets are not inviting.

I too am a bedmaker in the morning, except this summer it has been so hot, that I just leave the top sheet folded at the end of the bed and smooth out the bottom sheet. I'm looking forward to cooler weather and a "made" bed.

Yes, you are right. A made up bed and plumped out pillows are so inviting. I like the peace and restfulness that seem to be present. Mave

I love to see the bed made up with fluffy pillows, a comforter or quilt. My husband had knee surgery two months ago and we are just now getting to the place where he does not go to bed for rests during the day. So I can make the bed again soon.
Blessings,
Lynn

and once the bed is made, it motivates me to clean anything else that is out of place!

Oh my gosh ... someone agrees with me on this subject! I think making a bed in the morning is the perfect start to any day. It changes the whole look of the room, and so easy to accomplish.

I agree... the bed has to be made JUST RIGHT!

I love a nicely made bed and tidied bedroom. In the winter I use a duvet cover so it only takes a few seconds to get that nice bed made look.
