When it comes to beds many people tend to pay much attention to duvets, throw pillow and quilts but they pay very little attention to bed skirts. The bed skirt is one of the important elements of getting a stylish bedroom. The bed skirt was designed so as to hide the bed’s box spring or the foundation of the bed. Bed skirts usually come in different colors, patterns and texture, they are a great way to add style and color in the bedroom.
Below are the considerations one should make when purchasing a bed skirt.
The first factor to consider is the size of the bed skirt. If you purchase one that is too large it will be an ill-fitting on the bed. An ill-fitting bed skirt will ruin the entire look of your bedroom. To measure the distance between the top and the bottom of the bed you will need a tape measure. This is the only way of ensuring that you buy the best side. If the bed skirt is too small it leaves a gap that reveals what is under the bed.
Just like other bedding, bed skirts always come in a variety of styles that come in handy in complementing the look of your bedroom. You can choose a pleated skirt that fits in with transitional styles. There is also the option of an eyelet skirt which give your bedroom a traditional look. There are many other styles that one can choose from depending on their tastes and preferences.
Bed skirts can come in all different colors. The choice is yours. You can opt to color coordinate the bed skirt with the bed spread or the theme color in the bedroom. Solid colors are more versatile that light colors. That is because if the color of the foundation is dark, you can see it through the skirt. Therefore if you are choosing light colored skirt, make sure it is of a heavy fabric.
Proper care for the bed skirt?
Bed skirts can get dirty very quickly. This is because they trap dust and other allergens. They therefore have to be washed on a regular basis. Look for fabric that is easy to wash such as linen and cotton. However, you can always opt for a more luxurious material like velvet that require special care when washing. It is also advisable that you vacuum the bed skirt at least once a week and wash it at least once a month. When washing remember to follow instructions from the manufacturer.
If you have a non-standard bed size you might need to order a custom hotel bed skirt for the bed. The same goes for those with a round bed.
