What is the Modern Bed Skirt?

Bed skirts are a staple in bedding. While a subtle bedroom accessory, high- end bed skirts can have a surprisingly big impact on your bedroom decor. With lots of color options, bed skirts can match sheets or serve as a contrasting accent. Not only are they a finishing touch to a room, but they also hide box springs and create under-the-bed storage that can’t be seen by your guests. This is especially important in smaller spaces where you lack the ability to store everything in a garage or a closet. While bed skirts are a necessity for many when some people think of bed skirts they think of their grandmother’s house. She probably had a dust ruffle around each and every bed. These were very traditional bed skirts of the time. However, bed skirts have come a long way.

The Modern Bed Skirt

Instead of traditional styles of bed skirts that were made of a thin, ruffled fabric, the modern bed skirt has evolved. Our Simply On Bed Skirt is made of a thicker material to accommodate today’s larger mattresses and gives you more of a high-end feel. This modern bed skirt has ditched the ruffles and opted for a cleaner, crisper look with a flat fabric. This adds height to the bed, covers the frame, and still offers a hiding spot for storage. The best part of our Simply On Bed Skirts is that they clip around the bed, so there is no reason to strain yourself by trying to lift your mattress. This makes washing and reapplying easy.

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.


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.


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.
