Bedskirts and Accessories

Give your bed ensemble a Touch of Class with a bedskirt king, queen, twin, full, or even California king in size. Solid colors of white, brown, black, ivory, or even blush pink make matching your bedskirt to your main covering a snap. Fix the look of a short bedspread, or boost the multilayer appeal of a comforter, quilt, or coverlet.

Tailored styles, miniature pleats, ruffled layers, and crochet trim give these accessories an elegant boost.

    

When your bedspread doesn't quite touch the floor or that brand new quilt appears to be missing something, turn to bedskirts for an easy way to hide the underside of your bed while also adding in another layer of style. Pick out a bedskirt king in size with an 18" drop, and let the tailored fit bring a crisp look to your woven coverlet. Or, go in the opposite direction stylistically with a pleated bedskirt instead. A twin size adds a flourish of elegance even to a snug spare bedroom.

Also known as a bed valance or dust ruffle, a bedskirt covers your boxspring alone, while your comforter or quilt covers the mattress on top. Although you should certainly pay close attention to the size—a twin bedskirt will fit a twin-sized boxspring, obviously—you should also measure the height of your boxspring for the appropriate bedskirt drop. Whether that's 14, 15, or even 18 inches, the bedskirt drop should match the height of your boxspring. Go too short or too long, and you risk making your bed ensemble look out-of-proportion—or at the very least, showing off the clutter underneath your bed!

Take into account the patterns and colors found in your main bed covering, when deciding on a bedskirt. Solid white or ivory brings an airy, delicate vibe to a ruffled bedskirt. Multiple tiers of ruffles lend charm to a colorful cottage quilt embroidered with wildflowers. Then, it's as simple as adding soft lighting to a headboard wall, like a hanging candelabra filled with tealight candles and metal butterflies.

But what if you're searching for a more opulent accent? Here, you'll want to try for shades of rich gold or understated taupe. A bedskirt full, queen, twin, or king in size with allover miniature pleats adds a hint of class to a traditional bedspread. The oversized damask print will pick up on the color found in your bedskirt, providing visual harmony to the whole display.

Otherwise, you might want to try a full-size bedskirt in blush pink or perhaps a faux silk style in dramatic black. The latter would make the perfect statement beneath a toile quilt in black and white. Solid black below allows the white background of the quilt to really pop, creating an intriguing two-tone color scheme. If you so choose, you can work a wallop of accent color into a focal point, like a bright red lampshade or a streak of plum in a toss pillow.

Do you love the look of a dust ruffle but not so much the work involved with putting one over your boxspring? Find detachable bedskirts in pleated and gathered styles. Hook-and-loop tape on the included fitted sheet will attach to the bedskirt, meaning you'll never have to lift the mattress should you ever need to wash your dust ruffle. Neutral colors like natural or white ensure color-coordinating with your current palette is a breeze. Whether you're going with ecru and blue or plum and pearl, find a bedskirt that enhances your look in more ways than one.
