If it weren’t for my wife, my bed situation would be a mattress, with a fitted sheet, and a sleeping bag sitting on top of it. But my wife does indeed make the bed every morning with a mattress protector, fitted sheet, flat sheet and duvet w/ cover (except the occasional weekend day when we leave early for some reason). She changes the sheets and washes the duvet cover every 1-2 weeks depending on the season.
I used to make the bed, but I’m the only one maintaining my household for the most part (S/O works odd hours and a lot of them), so very quickly I quit prioritizing it. Other messes that I’m working against that need my attention moreso.
I don’t make my bed and I have a perfectly sound reason for not doing so – I am chaos.
I don’t use a comforter and instead have a series of blankets with varying degrees of warmth. I start off hot so no blanket, then I get colder, so a thin blanket, then I either get warm again or need another blanket. Sometimes I use three blankets, sometimes none at all. Sometimes I turn a fan on and sometimes I’m freezing and can’t get warm enough.
And, of course, my little dog has to be under the blankets so most of the time she gets her own because she likes to be really warm, but she’s still right up against me and sometimes burrows under mine so she’s underneath both.
So I have a handful of blankets bunched up on the corner of my bed and use them as needed. It would just be way too much effort to try to make my bed each day. It’s difficult for me, anyway, due to health issues, so I just let the chaos happen.
Oh, and the cat has a little cat bed at the foot of my bed.
If you make your bed right when you wake up, you trap that moisture in the sheets allowing dust mites to thrive. Researchers found a simple solution. Leaving the bed unmade allowed the moisture to dry up reducing the dust mites in the bed.
I don’t know but when my enstilled this into my head as not a choice, the 60’s I don’t remember bed bugs being heard of. However I have an air purifier by my bed. And a matress cover that protects from that.
