A sometimes forgotten piece of your bed linen is the bed skirt. While your eye may not be directed immediately to the base of your mattress, you may eventually notice 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 as soon as the covers are pulled back you will see the box springs under the mattress also.
So in the event you’ve got no bed skirts, at some stage you will most likely 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 with no bed skirt. They can be found in many different colours and it is easy to coordinate satisfactorily with whatever covers the top of your bed, whether it is a comforter, quilt, duvet or bedspread. Additionally, there are 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 bits into a unit that creates the desired atmosphere you’re wanting to achieve in your bedroom. For many, this piece does not dominate the bedding, since it is not the piece your eye is drawn to originally. It is a complimentary piece to enhance the overall appearance of the desired atmosphere. So mostly you may wish to choose a solid color for this piece. There are striped bed skirts available and if you choose a stripe, you will probably need a subtle stripe so as to not create this piece the dominant feature of your bedding set.
While beauty is the main quality of a bed skirt, there’s another exceptional benefit to using it, one not to be overlooked. Maybe you reside in a home that doesn’t have enough closets. You can hide things under your bed and they’ll be out of sight and your room won’t be cluttered with miscellaneous items. You can disassemble a desk 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 things in a bag carton, they’ll be much easier to retrieve. Occasionally your dog or cat will hide from you or hide from the children under there. But after that hiding place is discovered, it will no longer work as an effective hiding place. It is always best to make a list of what you have in there if you do not use those items frequently. Or you can put them in your bag cartons and store them by class with a tag attached to the end of the bag. Otherwise, whatever you’ve so successfully hidden will be concealed from you, and it’s a lost piece. But if that’s true, not to worry.
