Mastering the Art of Triple Sheeting for Your Accommodation 

20 November 2023

Are you a property owner or manager looking to boost your property’s reviews, increase bookings, and improve your bottom line? If so, you might want to consider adopting the innovative concept of triple sheeting for your accommodations. Over the past few years, triple sheeting has taken the guest accommodation industry by storm, and it’s poised to shape the future of the sector. 

The Benefits of Triple Sheeting

Triple sheeting is more than just a trend; it’s a hygienic system that promises a fresh and inviting bed for your guests, assuring them of cleanliness and modern comfort. This technique is easy to manage for your housekeeping and laundry teams, and your guests will certainly appreciate the crisp, clean appearance of their sleeping quarters. Achieving the perfect triple sheeting look is as simple as utilizing three sheets and a blanket – all of which can be easily changed and laundered after each guest. 

But how do you master this technique while ensuring that your rooms remain cozy and inviting? Let’s dive into the details. 

What You’ll Need

Before you get started, you’ll need a few essential items: 

  • Base Layers 
  • Fitted or Flat Sheet 
  • Two More Flat Sheets 
  • Comforter, Quilt, or Blanket 
  • Decorative Items 

The Triple Sheeting Process

Start from the Base

Begin by setting up the foundational layers correctly. Ensuring that these layers are smooth and in place is essential for the success of the top sheet.  

Bed Bug Protector: Start with a bed bug protector to safeguard your mattress, as bed bug infestations are on the rise. 

Mattress Topper: Add a luxurious mattress topper for enhanced guest comfort. Mattress toppers are considered a luxury by guests and provide an exceptional sleep experience. 

Mattress Protector: To protect your mattress topper and mattress from stains and spills, use a mattress protector such as the Duo Plus mattress protector, featuring soft circular quilting and a noiseless waterproofing backing. 

Selecting the Right Sheets

The choice of sheets is crucial, considering factors like durability, comfort, and presentation.  

50/50 Polycotton Sheets: These are widely accepted as the standard in the hospitality industry, offering easy care and durability. 

30/70 Polycotton Sheeting: If you prioritize guest comfort over laundry convenience, this option provides superior comfort but has a shorter lifespan. 

Using the same sheeting for all three layers simplifies laundering, making storage, sorting, and changes quick and straightforward.

Adding Warmth

You can use duvet inners, boxed end quilts (such as our Sung Quilt), bedcovers, or blankets as a warmth layer. Your choice should align with your property’s style and guest preferences.

The Finishing Touches

To complete the triple sheeting look, add a blanket, runner, or throw at the foot of the bed, complemented by cushions. 

Putting It All Together

Start with a fitted or flat sheet on top of the base layers.  Shake out the sheet until it evenly covers the bed. Pull it up from the head of the bed until it’s smooth and meets the headboard. 

Add the warmth layer, ensuring the top hem is about 15 cm short of the headboard. 

Place the third flat sheet over the blanket, sandwiching the warmth layer between two flat sheets. 

Fold the top of the sheets back 15 cm, excluding the warmth layer. 

Fold back another 15 cm, including the sheets and warmth layer, thus folding the sheets twice and the warmth layer only once. 

Tuck in both top sheets and the blanket, creating neat “hospital” corners at the foot of the bed. 

Place the pillows on the bed. 

Finish with additional blankets, runners, throws, and coordinating cushions. 

Pro Tip: Removing Fold Creases from Sheets on the Bed

  • Fit your sheet tightly to create tension. 
  • Fill a spray bottle with tap water and add a pleasant scent for your guests. 
  • Lightly spritz the crease line and smooth it with your hand. 
  • Allow it to dry, and you’ll have a smooth sheet.
