A sometimes forgotten bit of your bed linen is your bed skirt. While your eye may not be directed immediately to the bottom of your bed, you will eventually detect that there is in place the bed skirt – or that there is not 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 beneath the mattress as well.
So if you’ve got no bed skirts, at some stage you will most likely gravitate to the thought that you no longer want to find those box springs or the legs of the bed. Your bed really isn’t all that complete without the bed skirt. It is put on top of the box springs and the mattress lays on top of it. They can be found in many different colours 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 group.
A bed skirt completes the overall beauty of your bed and ties the individual bits into a unit that creates the desired atmosphere you’re wanting to achieve in your bedroom. For many, this piece doesn’t dominate the bedding, since it is not the piece that your eye is attracted to originally. It is a complimentary piece to enhance the overall appearance of the desired atmosphere. So mostly you will want to choose a good color for this piece. There are striped bed skirts available and should you pick a stripe, you will probably need a subtle stripe so as not to create this piece the dominant quality of your bedding collection.
While beauty is the major feature of a bed skirt, there is another exceptional advantage to using it, one not to be overlooked. Perhaps you live in a home that doesn’t have enough closets. It is possible to hide things under your bed and they’ll be out of sight and your room will not be cluttered with miscellaneous items. It is possible to disassemble a desk and hide it under your bed for example. Or place 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 things in a bag carton, they’ll be much easier to retrieve. It is always best to make a list of what you’ve got in there if you do not use those items often. Or you can set them in your bag cartons and store them by class with a label attached to the end of the bag. Otherwise, whatever you have so successfully concealed will be concealed from you, and now it’s a lost piece. But if that’s the case, not to worry. You’ll find it if and when you move.
