I make our bed. I did use sticky contact paper to help slide the mattress back on to the platform. Not recommended as the contact paper does not allow the mattress to breathe and normal respiration caused mold to form under the mattress!! We have the Denver mattress,,,I have since removed the contact paper and my husband and I slide the mattress back in place. I slide the mattress off the platform and put on the fitted sheet securing it with suspenders...I use four suspenders and they hold the fitted sheet perfectly in place. After the fitted sheet is on we push the mattress back on the platform and continue with the flat top sheet and the bedspread. we have a rv queen size mattress.

Ditto!!! There are many more things to worry about that are much more important than this.

Am I the only one that uses flat sheets? Flat sheets go on easily, if done correctly they stay where they were put, and then come off easily. My biggest complaint is flat sheets are getting harder and harder to find, so I guess I AM the only one using them.

Sounds like everyone has problems making the bed. I must be lucky cuz I don't have any issues getting a fitted sheet on the mattress at all. Our mattress slides down with no issues at all either. it's so easy I Even have a bed skirt under the mattress to hide the ugly platform.

I have to agree however there could be more space between the mattress and the shelf space you get.

No need to make the bed. Just going to mess it up in about 16 hours.

I always wanted a coach with a Murphy Bed like they had in the Gulfstream Constellation that was built for a few years.

Get up and hit the button, the bed disappears into the wall.

End of story! No mess no fuss!

I used the space bag to store them. I kept the rolls and 2 pillows for when we have guests. There are still little accent pillows by the sofa.
