Bed Skirt Basics
If you have a traditional mattress/box spring/bed frame setup, you need a bed skirt (also known as a dust ruffle). Not only do they hide your box spring, bed skirts create hidden underbed storage and offer an opportunity to add some color and texture to your bedroom décor. A bed skirt adds a finished, professional touch to your room.

Bed skirts come in several forms. They can be tailored, with pleats or panels that lay flat against the bed. Or they can be ruffled, adding some fullness and feminine energy. They can even have several layers of coordinating fabric, which gives a very luxe, opulent look.

These essential but sometimes overlooked pieces of bedding come in a wide variety of colors, patterns and textures, so you can find the right one for your individual style. Traditional fabrics include eyelet, lace and matelasse, while contemporary bed skirts can be made from materials like linen, faux suede and velvet. The heavier the fabric, the longer it will hold its shape between cleanings.

When shopping for a bed skirt, measure your box spring or foundation first. Mattresses and box springs can vary in size, so be sure you know the size before you buy. You should also measure the distance from the top of the box spring to the floor. This is known as the drop. The standard drop on a bed skirt is about 15”, but sizes vary. Measuring beforehand ensures that you get a bed skirt that fits perfectly.The bed skirt, also called a dust ruffle, is meant to do two things: Cover your box spring and add a little style to your bed. Bed skirts come in various styles, patterns and colors. Finding the right one for your room can make a difference in your bedroom decor. Here are some guidelines for choosing a bed skirt.

  • It Should Fit Your Bed
    Make sure you buy the right size dust ruffle for your mattress. Bed skirts are available in the same sizes as beds: twin, XL twin, double, queen, king and California king. Double check the measurements of your bed before buying.

  • It Should Fit Your Decor
    A lacy, ruffled bed skirt will not work in a sleek, modern bedroom, no matter how much you love it. The style of the bed skirt should match the style of the bedroom. Choose a color the will work with your bedding. Don’t be afraid of a pattern, but make sure it won’t clash with your comforter.

  • It Should Make A Statement
    You don’t have to settle for a boring bed skirt. If you like a plain white one, that’s fine, but don’t limit yourself if you love color and pattern; you can make it work. Try using two coordinating bed skirts at the same time: one under the mattress and the other over the mattress (but under the sheets) to create a fabulous layered look. The skirts don’t have to match—try a pattern over a solid or a print over a stripe.
