Triple sheeting is a technique designed to address two of the biggest challenges for hotels – room cleanliness and housekeeping labor shortages.
by far for housekeepers, taking twice the time as the next longest task. Beds are also extremely important to guests – with saying a clean bed is their most important cleanliness factor.
In the past, hotel beds have been made using either a duvet or a comforter/bedspread. Many properties have moved away from bedspreads due to high laundering costs and negative guest perception. While duvet covers can be more easily laundered, they also take a considerable amount of housekeeping time to remove and replace after each guest stay.
The triple sheeting technique was born as a solution that is not only simple for housekeepers and laundry, but also provides guests with the peace of mind that their bed linens are clean and fresh.
Triple sheeting is a technique where three sheets are used to make a bed, instead of a duvet cover or bedspread.
Triple sheeting has long been a trend in hospitality across all tiers of properties, offering a clean and crisp look. But it’s not simply an aesthetic choice. Let’s revisit why triple sheeting became the go-to method in hospitality – and how you’re missing out if you’re not triple sheeting at your hotel.
In short, triple sheeting is a cleaner, faster, and less expensive way to make hotel beds. Here is a deeper look at the benefits of triple sheeting:

There are seven simple steps to follow when triple sheeting a bed:
Now that you’ve decided to make the switch to triple sheeting, it’s time to shop for a top cover. The sky is the limit when it comes to style. Just keep in mind that one of the main reasons you are switching is to save time. With this in mind, you might consider our patented Cumulus® Top Cover. The unique texture is activated when washed and requires no ironing since it is “wrinkled by design”. Your laundry staff will love how simple Cumulus® is to process.
If you prefer a more traditional style, we also have a complete line of performance top covers. From traditional striped top covers to our elegant Reed pattern and the eye-catching Block-on-Block top cover, we have patterns to fit any aesthetic. And don’t forget to check out Impressions, our newest line of top covers. Impressions features both a Crackle and a Solitaire pattern that are sure to impress your guests.
If luxury is what you seek, look no further than the Todd-Avery Lenahan Collection. This five-star sheeting and terry line is reserved for the world’s finest hoteliers. Our Braque, Concerto, and Dune patterns offer an array of dazzling design choices.
Looking for other ways to save your housekeeping staff time when turning over rooms? Triple sheeting is even faster using EZ-ID®, which allows for easy color-coded size identification. Center lock labels also help to quickly identify the center of the sheet. We call this collection of time-saving features ONESTEP® – One Solution to Enhance Productivity.
In addition to triple sheeting, we recommend protecting your mattress and pillow investments with an antimicrobial mattress encasement and pillow protectors. Keep not only viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus, and mildew out of your mattresses, but also other allergens, bed bugs, and pet dander as well.
