The sheets are pulled out from under the mattress and the comforter is on the floor. You hurry in to make the bed but it’s a job. You wonder if this bed was really a good choice.

First and foremost, you need attached or inseparable sheets. The fitted sheet and the straight sheet are sewn together at the foot and up one side. When they are attached at the side, all you have to do is pull the top sheet across the fitted sheet and it’s done. This also keeps the top sheet on the bed during the night. Inseparable sheets are available in a variety of colors and fabrics to suit every taste.
With the sheets fitting properly, you might want a nice comforter on top. A regular comforter or blanket will come off easily. A bunk bed hugger is a special type of fitted comforter that is perfect for bunk beds. Also known as a bunk bed cap, hugger or snuggler. It has a fitted bottom so it stays in place during the night and makes up nicely during the day. However, these fitted comforters are not just for bunk beds. They work well on twin or full beds, trundle beds or any bed with a foot board.
