Teenagers have a reputation for being difficult to please. One of the most common complaints from parents is that their teenager will not make the bed in the morning. Luckily, this problem has a solution: sheet-less beds!
Top sheet-less beds are one of those items that will always be trending with teenagers because they definitely don’t want to deal with it every day. In this post, we’ll look at some top sheet-less beds your teenage child won’t mind making and how to style them so they still feel stylish and comfortable without a top sheet.
Why bedsheets are a thing of the past?
Bedding has been a hot topic in the design world in the last couple of years. Some people think bedsheets are what make our bed look finished, but that’s the last thing your teenager cares about. But bedsheets seem to be going out of style. In fact, many kids coming up today have never seen a top sheet on their bed. What!
I think the answer is that people don’t want to be bothered with the additional laundry. Are you a top sheet person or a no top sheet person? I’m absolutely more comfortable with a top sheet and my argument FOR them is that the blanket/bedspread doesn’t get as dirty. But I’ve found they just end up wadded at the bottom of my son’s bed.
What Bedding is Trending for Teens
I’m not going to separate into boys or girls. I think ALL teens want something comfortable. One of these is a weighted blanket. According to the sleep foundation “Weighted blankets stimulate the production of a mood-boosting hormone (serotonin), reduce the stress hormone (cortisol), and increase levels of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep.” This sounds like the perfect recipe for teens.

3 Tips Getting Your Teen To Make Their Bed
Tip 1 – Get A Bed Skirt – If bedsheets are a thing of the past, then you definitely need to invest in a bed skirt or a box spring cover. They don’t even have to touch that. Bedskirts hide what’s under the bed and makes any bed look more stylish. I like this tailored bed skirt.
Tip 2 – Get TWO Pillow Cases – Get TWO nice pillowcases and don’t put more decorative pillows on the bed. If you only have two pillows there aren’t a bunch of pillows on the floor. I love these pillow cases from Schoolhouse and these grey dot pillows.
Tip 3 – Ditch the top sheet – Use a really soft fitted sheet and no top sheet. I like Brooklinens’s cotton percale fitted sheets.
Teenagers have a reputation for being difficult to please. One of the most common complaints from parents is that their teenager will not make the bed in the morning. Luckily, this problem has a solution: sheet-less beds, and uncomplicated bedding! Use just a blanket and two great looking pillow cases. That’s it.
