Now here’s a way to make your bed in 60 seconds or less. But wait—there’s a secret bed component here that you absolutely need to accomplish it, and it’s to have a duvet or a comforter.

So here’s how to make that bed, in in three quick steps:

1. Pull the flat sheet taut over your fitted sheet, tuck under the mattress at the head of the bed.

2. Cover the bed with your duvet or comforter. Smoothen down the edges on all four corners, or fold the upper portion of the comforter over to form a border.

3. Fix your pillows upright against the headboard. Layer them—standard, rectangular sleeping pillows first, then the two square throw pillows, then last is the bolster, if you have one.
