You may not think of bed skirts as a modern piece of your bedroom decor, but they serve an important function, whether you want to admit it or not. A well-made bed skirt will conceal your storage drawers and furniture legs, ensuring that all eyes are on your bed and the rest of your room’s beautiful features.
So what's a bed skirt? A bed skirt is a decorative fabric that covers a box spring and keeps dust, dirt, and wear-and-tear from showing. It’s attached to your mattress on four sides: along one end, both sides, and in front of your box spring. A typical length of a bed skirt (around twin size) can range from 2 to 12 inches above floor level.
In this guide, we’ll cover how to choose the best bed skirt for your needs, how to attach it to your bed frame, and even some creative ways to use them in other parts of your house. Let’s get started!
Best Bed Skirt
If you’re tired of seeing your storage box and cords every time you raise or lower your bed, consider getting a bed skirt to hide those unsightly items. There are different types of bedskirts for queen beds, bedskirts for adjustable beds, and duvet covers, so make sure you find one that’s right for your mattress. The length of your bed skirt is important too - you don’t want it to be longer than your mattress, because it will bunch up around it when you make your bed.
Bed skirts can also be tailored with specific colors or fabrics if you want them to match an existing décor theme in your bedroom. You'll find that many bed skirts are made of cotton, polyester microfiber, or other synthetic fabrics which will survive repeated washings.
