To make the bed is a common chore and one that even young children can assist in doing. Usually, this involves straightening or arranging the bedding. It can be as simple as putting the pillow at the head of the bed and pulling up a duvet or other covers. However, "making the bed" can also refer to the more difficult tasks of flipping or rotating the mattress or its cover, changing the bedding and tucking it in. This can involve dust ruffles or other decorative components such as throw pillows.
