Putting sheets on the bed?

We love our 2012 XLR 27hfs but putting sheets on the bed is definitely a challenge. I just came in from changing the sheets and have worked up a sweat. I would have given up a couple of inches at the table area just to gain enough room to tuck the sheets in around the bed!! Any tips or tricks?

There really are no tricks to it. I do a lot of rolling side to side when I'm putting them on by myself. And like you, I work up a sweat doing it! We also use the elastic sheet "suspenders" (Wal Mart, $5 a set) to keep the bottom sheet nice and tight, since we have a short queen and are using regular size sheets. The only tip I can give you is to enlist your DH to help you. It works much better with 2 people!!

Our bed is in the center line. we stand on each side of the bed to make it.
We use fitted sheets, so we pull the mattress down so we can reach the upper end easily. After fitting the top, we push the mattress back in and continue to make the bed.
Easy and fast.

We had little room in our TV and was told to put peel and stick tiles under the bed. I did the same in out new FW and it works like a charm. I appreciate the help from DH but I can do it alone now also. And -- I don't have to roll around on the bed or be a contortionist!!! Hope this helps!

Wait, I don't understand the peel and stick tile under the bed? You mean so the mattress will slide around easier?
