A step by step guide

A well made bed looks great but hospital corners can really enhance the appearance and can make your bed look more clean, crisp and aesthetically pleasing. If aesthetic is what you’re going for, nothing looks better than a bed with hospital corners. 

With this step-by-step guide, you will be able to make your own hospital corners on a bed with ease and give it a neat, professionally made look.

Step 1: Lay the flat sheet over your mattress

Secure your fitted sheet over your mattress. Once you’ve done that, place your flat sheet over the top of the fitted sheet. Let the flat sheet hang evenly over all four sides of the mattress.

Step 2: Tuck the Flat Sheet under the Foot of the Mattress

Lift the foot of the mattress with one hand. Use the other hand to tuck the flat sheet under the mattress, starting from one corner to the other. Place the mattress back down. The excess fabric should now be hanging on the side of the mattress.

Step 3: Form a 45-Degree Angle with Excess Fabric

Choose one corner at the foot of the mattress to start folding your first hospital corner. Grasp the excess fabric hanging on the long side of the mattress. Then, lift it up and place it on top of the mattress. The edge of the sheet should form a 45-degree triangle with the corner of your mattress.

Step 4: Tuck in the 45-Degree Triangle

Hold the part of the flat sheet that forms a 45-degree triangle. Tuck in the hanging fabric along the side of the mattress and let the sheet fall.

Step 5: Adjust the Sheet

Adjust the edge of the sheet to the corner of the mattress and tuck it in as tight as possible. 

Step 6: Repeat steps 3 through 5 on the remaining corner.

Once you’ve completed all the steps, smooth out any wrinkles or creases at the top of the sheet.
