How to Keep Sheets on an Adjustable Bedadjustable-bed


Adjustable beds can make a world of difference to your sleep. They come in different shapes, sizes and types, so you can find the one that best suits your needs. An adjustable bed is ideal for anyone who struggles with mobility issues, or who requires help to find a comfortable sleeping position, perhaps due to a medical condition. They can even improve your circulation, tackle the symptoms of acid reflux and help to alleviate respiratory complaints such as sleep apnoea and asthma.

However, there is one downside to investing in an adjustable bed. Because these beds can be easily repositioned and adjusted to suit the sleeper’s requirements, it can be difficult to keep their sheets in place. This can then become an irritation for you, as loose sheets can interfere with your comfort as you sleep. This, in turn, diminishes the positive impact of having an adjustable bed in the first place.

Keen to find a way to avoid this problem and learn how to get sheets to stay on an adjustable bed? Here at Victoria Linen, we’ve drawn on our years of experience to provide you with some helpful tips and advice. Now you’ll never have to worry about how to keep a sheet on your adjustable bed! Read on to learn more.


Why are my sheets coming off my adjustable bed?


If the sheets on your adjustable bed keep coming loose, it may not just be because of the frequent movement of the bed’s base. There could be some other factors involved. Before you go about tackling the problem, consider these common causes of slipping sheets to help you find out the real reason why your bedding is coming untucked. Once you’ve found the real cause of the problem, it will then be a piece of cake to choose the right solution.


Your sheet is the wrong size


This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many people are using the wrong size sheet for their beds. If your sheets are even slightly too big or too small, it is a lot easier for them to become loose during the night.

You may not realise it but the depth of your mattress can also be a factor, as, if a sheet is not big enough to accommodate the depth of the mattress, it will be easier for it to ride up and eventually come loose - particularly if you move around as you sleep.

Among our wide range of bedding products, we happen to have an impressive collection of bespoke sheets for adjustable beds. That way, you can rest assured that your sheet perfectly matches your adjustable bed’s mattress.

All of our adjustable bed sheets feature extra depth and an elastic hem to make sure they stay in place. Made of good-quality fabric (200 thread count and more), our sheets also boast double stitching in each corner for added slippage protection.


The sheet is poorly placed


This problem is more common with fitted sheets, which often have to be put on just so, to ensure they don’t slip off while you sleep. To make sure you are putting your fitted sheet on the adjustable bed correctly, look at the other side of the sheet (the side that will be placed face down) and find the tag in one of the corner pockets.

When placing the sheet on the bed, this tag should be in the corner that fits over the bottom left corner of your mattress (left as you would see it while lying down on the bed).

Not enough elastic

The amount of elastic sewn around the edges of a sheet can make a huge difference to whether or not the sheet stays securely in place. Most sheets only have elastic at the four corners, but here at Victoria Linen, we provide high-quality sheets with elastic all the way around the edge. This helps them grip onto the mattress and prevents any unwanted slippage.

Your movements while you sleep

Another common cause of sheets coming loose is too much tossing and turning while you sleep. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do to stop this, but if you know you have a habit of moving about regularly, it’s worth making sure your sheets are as snugly adjusted as can be before you go to bed.

Upgrading to high thread count, breathable cotton bed sheets may also help to improve your sleep quality.


How to keep a top sheet tucked in on an adjustable bed

If you like to snuggle under a top sheet after a long day but moving your adjustable bed means it keeps coming untucked, there are a couple of things you can do to help keep it in place.


Use elastic straps


Elastic straps are a simple but effective way of anchoring your top sheet to the mattress and preventing it from moving around or coming loose. Some sheets may come with elastic straps included, or you can purchase some straps and sew them onto the four corners of your sheet and then tuck them underneath the mattress.

The elasticity of the straps should help them to keep the sheet in place while adapting to the movement of your bed as you change position.


Try sheet fasteners


Sheet fasteners are another simple but handy tool that you can use to stop your sheets coming off the mattress. If you have never seen them before, they resemble a pair of suspenders – but for your bed.

These elasticated bands come with clips for easy attachment. Simply position the straps across the mattress in a criss-cross shape and clip them into place, making sure they are tight enough to prevent any slippage.


Try a semi-fitted sheet


At Victoria Linen, among our many innovative products, we manufacture semi-fitted top sheets that are perfect for adjustable beds. These sheets are a cross between fitted and flat sheets, in that they are equipped with elastic at end of the sheet that fits the foot of the bed. You can then get under the flat top section and it will stay in place when the bed is adjusted, guaranteeing your comfort as you sleep.


Can you use a fitted sheet on an adjustable bed?


Fitted sheets can definitely be used on an adjustable bed, but it is important to opt for sheets that come with deep pockets. If they do not have deep pockets, it will be easy for them to ping off when the bed is repositioned. You must also make sure that the sheet is well suited to the shape and size of your mattress for the best possible fit.


Where can I buy quality sheets for my adjustable bed?


If you want to find sheets for your adjustable bed that will last you for years to come, you’re in the right place. Our extensive collection of fitted sheets for adjustable beds guarantees a comfortable night’s sleep every single night.

We have a wide range of sizes and fabrics on offer, so you are sure to find the perfect sheets to suit your needs. However, if you can’t find the right size, all you need to do is give us a ring on 01706 220020. Or you can send us an email and a member of our friendly team will get back to you right away to help with your query.
