After you've chosen the bed of your dreams, it's time to protect it. While some may forget this basic necessity when making a bed, a mattress protector is essential to extending the life of your bed and ensuring you're sleeping in a healthy sleep environment night after night.

3. Shop the Sheets

If you've searched for how to make up a bed, you probably know that bed sheets are easily one of the most important items. When you make a bed, it's important to choose sheets that not only fit your mattress but also your sleep style.

Are you a hot sleeper? Cool sleeper? Do you have dogs that sleep in your bed? Do your kids sometime take over your bed? These questions may not seem obvious when shopping for bed sheets, but ultimately, they are important to determine the best bed sheets for you and your sleep needs.

From cooling to memory foam, down to latex, pillow types are plentiful, so there's always a comfy place to rest your head at night. With so many options, it's important to determine what type of pillows work best for you.
