Do I Need a Bed Skirt?

When strolling down the bedding aisle there can be an overwhelming feeling that sweeps across you as you are presented with countless options of accessories for the place you rest your head. One of the items you will always encounter in the bedding aisle are bed skirts. While some people look at bed skirts as optional, they are a necessity. In this article, we will explain what a bed skirt is, and why they are a necessary part of any bedding purchase.

What is a Bed Skirt?

A bed skirt looks similar to an oversized sheet and is layered between the mattress and box spring, extending all the way down to the floor. Bed skirts can serve both aesthetic and practical functions. While aesthetically it is a decorative piece of fabric it is also designed to prevent dust from accumulating under a bed. Also, it is used to cover a box spring and hide any storage underneath the bed. 

Do I Need a Bed Skirt?

A bed skirt typically compliments a sheet set or comforter and acts as a decorative piece. If you own a traditional mattress and box spring set, your bed’s the ideal candidate for a bed skirt. A bed skirt complements or shares the color of your comforter to create a cohesive bed design. Traditionally, it lies between the mattress and box spring and cascades towards the floor. Although our Simply On Bed Skirts connects around the mattress for easy application. Without a bed skirt, your bedding will not cover your box spring and the legs of the frame.

Why Should I have a Bed Skirt?

Clean Look:

There is nothing worse than noticing all of the dust under a bed you are sleeping on. Having a bed skirt will help minimize the amount of dirt and dust that gets trapped underneath the bed. Also, one of the best reasons to get a bed skirt is that you can hide storage underneath the bed and behind the skirt. This will make your home look more organized and less cluttered.

Decoration:

A high-quality bed skirt creates a luxurious look to your room and adds the appearance of height to your bed. That is why at Simply On Bed Skirts we use a thick microfiber material. This material will hide any box springs or metal legs from the frame that is holding up the mattress.

Affordable:

Simply On Bed Skirts are an affordable addition to your bedding. Starting at $53 there is no reason not to invest in one.

Easy Maintenance:

The biggest difference with Simply On Bed Skirts is the ease of maintenance. With traditional bed skirts, you had to lift up the mattress in order to get the bed skirt out from under it. This is an issue if you are home alone or have back issues. We made Simply On Bed Skirts so you could easily avoid this by clipping the bed skirt around the mattress, instead of underneath it. Our bed skirts are easily removed and machine washable.

Why Choose a Neutral Color for Your Bed Skirt

When choosing a color for your bedding it is currently trending to use neutral colors. This is a great trend because neutral colors give you a blank canvas, a backdrop against which you can decorate the rest of your bedroom with color. A neutral color palette goes with everything, so if your bedding is neutral it gives you a nice base to then add color within the rest of the room or with colored pillows to personalize your space. Deciding which neutral color to go with is where many people get stuck.

At Geela Lifestyle our Simply On bed skirts come in white, beige, and a light grey. These colors are subtle and can complement any decor as long as it is in the right color palette. This versatility allows you to change your room’s decor over time without having to change the bed skirt as well. 

How Do You Decorate With Neutral Colors?

When it comes to decorating with neutral colors, you can go a couple different directions. You can go for an all neutral color palette, where not only is your bedding a neutral tone, but your walls, furniture, and decor are also shades of neutral as well. The key to this approach is to vary the shades of neutrals within the same palette, so that you have a dynamic space that doesn’t look flat.

You can also do neutrals with added contrast. Think of it as a neutral base with a pop of color. Popping color into a room with pillows, curtains, or a painting is a fun way to add personality to a space. Also, these items that bring a pop of color can be easily swapped out to easily change the feel of a room without having to change the base of the decor.

Warm Neutrals Vs. Cool Neutrals

Not all neutrals go together in the same color palette. Even neutrals have a warm or cool undertone to them and you need to make sure you are choosing to decorate with one or the other. Neutrals with cool undertones skew more blue or green, which includes most greys. Meanwhile, warm neutrals have more red or yellow undertones which include browns and beiges. Warm colors have a stimulating effect, whereas cool colors tend to have a more calming and relaxing vibe.

Bedrooms are versatile because either neutral warm or neutral cool color palettes will work. When trying to decide this keep in mind, if you want a cozier feel to your space, go for a neutral with warm undertones. If you want to give your space a more open, airy vibe, go for a neutral with cool undertones.

Our Simply On Bed Skirts have revolutionized the industry. They are modern looking and can be easily installed and removed by one person in seconds without lifting or straining. They are available in white, beige, and grey and are the perfect finishing touch to a bedding set when decorating your bedroom.
