What is a Bed Skirt and Why Would You Want one?

 

A sometimes forgotten piece of your bed linen is the bed skirt. While your eye may not be directed immediately to the bottom of your bed, you may eventually notice that there is in place the bed skirt - or that there isn't one. If there isn't one, you will see the legs of the bed and when the covers are pulled back you will see the box springs under the mattress as well.

 

 

A sometimes forgotten piece of your bed linen is the bed skirt. While your eye may not be directed immediately to the bottom of your bed, you may eventually notice that there is in place the bed skirt - or that there isn't one. If there isn't one, you will see the legs of the bed and when the covers are pulled back you will see the box springs under the mattress as well.

 

So if you have no bed skirts, at some point you will probably gravitate to the thought that you no longer want to see those box springs or the legs of the bed. Your bed really isn't all that complete without the bed skirt. It is placed on top of the box springs and the mattress lays on top of it. They are available in many different colors and you can easily coordinate satisfactorily with whatever covers the top of your bed, whether it's a comforter, quilt, duvet or bedspread. There are also some bedding sets that include the coordinating bed skirt in the grouping.

 

A bed skirt completes the overall beauty of your bed and ties the individual pieces into a unit that creates the desired atmosphere you are wanting to achieve in your bedroom. For most, this piece does not dominate the bedding, in that it isn't the piece that your eye is drawn to initially. It is a complimentary piece to enhance the overall look of the desired atmosphere. So mostly you will want to choose a solid color for this piece. There are striped bed skirts available and if you choose a stripe, you will probably want a subtle stripe so as not to make this piece the dominant feature of your bedding set.

 

While beauty is the main feature of a bed skirt, there is another unique advantage to using it, one not to be overlooked.  

Maybe you live in a house that doesn't have enough closets. You can hide things under your bed and they will be out of sight and your room will not be cluttered with miscellaneous items. You can disassemble a table and hide it under your bed for example. Or put things under there that you don't use every day, that you only use occasionally, as it can be a little unhandy to retrieve them. If you put these items in a tote carton, they will be much easier to retrieve.

Sometimes your dog or cat will hide from you or hide from the kids under there. You can hide presents under your bed that you haven't given yet. But once that hiding place is discovered, it will no longer work as an effective hiding place. It's always best to make a list of what you have in there if you don't use those items often. Or you can put them in your tote cartons and store them by category with a label attached to the end of the tote. Otherwise, whatever you have so successfully hidden will be hidden from you, and now it's a lost piece. But if that's the caseFree Articles, not to worry. You'll find it if and when you move.
