Bed skirts and box spring covers are an easy and elegant way to dress up your bed—and disguise your bed frame. Our matelassé bed skirts display ornate stitches and lovely texture, while our options crafted of smooth sateen or relaxed linen provide a subtle finishing touch. We offer gathered, split-corner, and pleated bed skirts to fit Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and King mattresses, including 14-, 18-, and 21-inch drop lengths and low-profile bed skirts for smaller box springs. Our bed skirts and box spring covers are offered in white, neutral shades, and rich hues to complement your bedding. Also called dust ruffles, bed skirts hide under-bed storage and create a tidy appearance—they’re multi-purpose bedding essentials.
What is a Bed Skirt?
A bed skirt is a piece of decorative fabric that lies between the mattress and box spring and drapes to the floor, hiding the box spring, bed frame, and under-bed storage. Bed skirts consist of the skirt itself and the platform, or the part that covers the top of the box spring.
What is a Dust Ruffle?
A dust ruffle is the same as a bed skirt. These decorative bed linens go between the mattress and box spring, draping to the floor to cover the area between the edge of your comforter or quilt and the floor.
What Are Bed Skirts For?
A bed skirt can be decorative, functional, or both: Use it to conceal an unsightly box spring, bed frame, and under-bed storage; prevent dust accumulation beneath the bed; or add a decorative touch that complements your bedding and other decor.
Do you need a bed skirt?
Whether you need a bed skirt is a matter of personal preference. For beds with a headboard and footboard, a bed skirt may not be necessary; for those without, a bed skirt can elevate the aesthetic and prevent dust accumulation.
How do you put on a bed skirt?
A traditional bed skirt should rest atop the box spring like a flat sheet. Remove the mattress then put the bed skirt on, adjusting to ensure the platform is wrinkle free, the corners fit properly, and the skirt drapes to the floor. Then, put the mattress back. For easy attachment, opt for detachable or tuck-style bed skirt.
