Q&A: Do People Still Use Bedskirts?

Au Lit Q&A

Q: Do people still use bedskirts? 

A: Yes! If your bed rests on a boxspring and metal frame, a bedskirt is a must for hiding the "skeleton" of your beautiful bed. Don't panic though! The frills and ruffles often associated with bedskirts are a thing of the past. These days, we gravitate toward a more smooth or tailored look, offering clean and modern options without a flounce in sight.

Tailored with Pleats and Closed Corners

Our "Tailored with Pleats" style features a pleat down the centre of each 'panel' of the skirt, as well as pleating at the corners. This option echoes a traditional skirt look updated for more modern times.

Open-corners are a must if you have a footboard, so the legs of the frame have a space to go through.

Measuring the Drop

Now that we've got aesthetics down, let's move into logistics. One of the most important considerations when purchasing a bedskirt is the measurement from the top of your boxspring to the floor - a measurement we call the drop. Ideally, your bedskirt will "kiss" the floor, rather than riding high or pooling on the ground. Knowing the proper drop when ordering your skirt will ensure it presents just right.
