What’s Up With Boat Beds?

Have you ever noticed that the beds on boats aren’t the standard rectangular shape? It’s designed so that they fit into spaces that require some contouring. That’s great for space saving, but not so great when trying to put on sheets or even ordering new sheets.

It’s shaped like a pentagon

After going to the internet, I received many suggestions from where to buy replacement sheets to other suggestions on how to make standard sheets work.

I could find specialty made sheets for this bed, but that was a bit costly. Then someone mentioned suspenders for sheets.

The suggestion came at the right time as they were on Amazon’s Cyber Monday sale. I grabbed a few and put them to the test.

The bed is supposedly a queen, but I purchased a king size bamboo sheet to ensure all areas would be covered. Using two king suspenders, I was able to get the sheet to fit and stay. it even stayed secured the next morning.

Thank you friends for the suggestion as it made bed making much easier.

    It’s the little things that make all the difference.

      They really do. Never knew how irritated I was with sheets moving around. Also makes bed making in the morning so much easier since I don’t have to tuck the sheets back in.
