Are you always horrible at putting things back where they belong? Making your bed will certainly spur you on to do so! Since your bed is made tidy…you’ll definitely feel like wanting to maintain that same consistency in the various parts of your space too!

If you’ve spent a good amount of money on linens and pillows, this might motivate you to make your bed!


Making your bed helps to straighten out your linens, which will in turn neaten out the overall appearance of your sleep area. Fluffing those pillows will help them keep their shape longer too. With this good habit, you can bid farewell to wrinkled sheets and lifeless pillows!



4. It ties the whole room together

Even if the rest of your room isn’t in it’s top shape, a neat bed will still somehow tie everything together. Besides, it’s the first thing guests will see the moment they walk in!



5. Clear the clutter

Though it doesn’t happen very often, sometimes your friends may want to pop-by for an impromptu visit at your place. There may be many other things that are in a mess but your bed should not be one of them.


As it is the largest piece of furniture in your room, it will be the first thing that draws your friends’ attention. Don’t you want to look like a person that has her/his life together?!
