What’s the use of a Flat Sheet? How can we use it in place of a Fitted Sheet? Flat Sheets or Top Sheets, are almost unheard of in some parts of the world but this versatile piece of bedding can be used as a thin blanket, as an extra layer under your duvet like hotels do, or used in place of fitted sheets especially if you have an odd-sized bed.
You can easily do this by following our simple instructions on achieving neat-looking Hospital Corners (overlapping folds used to tuck sheets neatly and securely under the mattress). You’ll want to add this flexible piece of bedding to your essentials.
Place the flat sheet centred on the mattress.
At the foot of the bed, tuck the excess fabric under the mattress as tightly as you can.
Bring up the excess fabric at the sides at a 45 degree angle, like a triangle.
Tuck in the excess under the mattress and drop the rest.
Tuck in the remaining fabric and you have a nice Hospital Corner!
