While a subtle bedroom accessory, the best bed skirts can have a surprisingly big impact on your bedroom decor. Bed skirts, also known as dust ruffles, hide box springs and under-the-bed storage. With lots of color and pattern options, bed skirts can match sheets or serve as a contrasting accent.
Bed skirts range from ruffled to pleated, which fit a range of decors. Details and texture, like lace or burlap, can add dimension to your room. However, not all bed skirts are machine washable, and should be washed every season or twice a year, so decide it that's a dealbreaker for you. Most have a bed valance (the part that covers the box spring like a sheet) so in order to wash it, you have to pull the bed skirt out from beneath your mattress; but for ultimate convenience, go for detachable bed skirts, which don't require moving mattresses to remove for washing.
When measuring to get the right bed skirt length, note that most are intended to skim the floor, but you may prefer the skirt an inch off the ground; especially if you have storage under your bed. To ensure you get the look you want, measure the height between your boxspring and the floor.
Alright, it's time to shop the best bed skirts.
