One question: do you like bed skirts?
They have never been my favorite thing so about five years ago, I quit using them. Obviously that left the ugly box spring exposed so my solution was to use fitted sheets.
It isn’t glamorous, but it does hide the box spring.
I pulled the bedding back so you could see:
Man…somebody needs to steam those wrinkles out! Ignore those please!
You don’t need the best quality, you just need coverage. I purchase an inexpensive set of sheets that match my bedding and regular (sleep-quality) sheets and cover the box spring. It has worked great. I like being able to see underneath the bed because it prevents everybody from shoving their stuff under there. I hate that.
One exception: Eryn. She still prefers a bed skirt. She has stuff. I don’t even want to look….
Plus, you get extra pillow cases and can use the extra top sheets for utility purposes.
Now, if you want to get really creative, here is an awesome way to do it from Urban Nest. She covered her box spring as if it was upholstery and it is awesome.
Now I will say that a lot of bed skirts these days are more tailored and not so fluffly/ruffled/droopy. If I was to switch back, I think I’d be okay with those.
Do you have a love/hate thing going on with your bed skirt? Do you have another alternative?
Have a great day! Be sure to come back tomorrow. I have something fun to show you!
