Hospitality is just like any other business where high-quality service is marked by a passion for service and efficiency. The success of a hospitality property will ultimately be determined by what the guest thinks. They usually look for a relaxing experience with comfortable bedding, delicious food, and lots of useful amenities. Hospitality properties experience significant amounts of daily guest turnover, so their staff must be efficient in their use of limited time between guest stays. One of the more efficient bedding methods is the implementation of triple sheeting. It was once common to see comforters, bedspreads, and quilts on top of beds, but that is no longer the case. This blog will explain what triple sheeting is, what the benefits are, and offer additional linens to complement triple sheeting.
Triple Sheeting Overview
Triple sheeting has become popular over the years due to its lower maintenance costs, the time it saves the housekeeping staff and its cleanliness. Triple sheeting is just what it sounds like. It consists of using three sheets to make a bed.
1) The fitted sheet first goes on the bed to form a base, usually on top of the mattress protector.
2) The flat sheet is added on top of the fitted sheet for the guests to sleep with.
3) After that, the blanket or warmth layer is added on top of the flat sheet.
4) Finally, the bed is covered with another flat sheet to serve as the top cover, and the two flat sheets are folded back and tucked in to encase the blanket. Click here for a step-by-step process for how to make a bed using triple sheeting.
Benefits of Triple Sheeting
Fresh and Clean– Sheeting is much easier to wash than thicker types of bedding like comforters, bedspreads, and quilts. The flat sheet on the top of the bed is light, so this makes the job of laundering easier between guest stays. The thinness and lightness of triple sheeting help the bed-making process become much easier and up to three times as fast. They tuck in well with the bed which leaves tight corners and will help give the guest a good first impression when they check into their room.
Efficiency– Triple sheeting can launder much quicker than other linens because it is lighter. This also makes the drying process faster and results in the laundering process being completed much quicker. Duvet covers can also launder quickly, but the process of getting the duvet insert back inside the cover can take a lot of time for housekeeping staff.
Economical- Sheets can be relatively inexpensive compared to other top-of-bed options like bedspreads and duvet covers. Linens can get stained or damaged, so replacing sheets should be easier financially for the property than other top-of-bed linens. Sheets also have a lot less weight than duvet covers or comforters, so money will be saved on the laundering process.
Additional Linens to Add with Triple Sheeting
A lot of triple sheeting comes with a standard white design and a basic pattern. This makes sense since it is essentially just another sheet on top of the bed. Some properties may wish to have an extra element of design and color on their bed. Here are some options that serve this purpose:
- A bed scarf is a linen that is laid along the bottom of the bed that adds color and texture while also protecting the bottom of the bed from shoe and suitcase marks.
- A top sheet is like a flat sheet that can be constructed of sturdier material and a decorative pattern to give it a more presentable appearance. With triple sheeting, there is a fitted sheet that is wrapped around the mattress, another flat sheet, the warmth layer, and then another flat sheet or top sheet used as the decorative top cover.
- A bed skirt is a linen that is found between the box spring and mattress, and its purpose is to add some color and texture to the lower part of the bed by hiding the bed frame.
- A box spring wrap is a linen that is tightly placed around the box spring to hide it and add color which will make the bed look more presentable to guests.
