No room is more personal than your bedroom. It’s where you set aside the cares of the day and relax either alone or with your partner. Creating a sanctuary requires more than paint and wall art. Bed linens add texture and pattern to your room, and the addition of a bed skirt often provides the finishing touch. Look through Walmart Canada’s selection of bed skirts and dust ruffles to personalize your sleeping space.
Although the trusty bed skirt does prevent the accumulation of dust bunnies, it also provides the following benefits:
Before you start checking out the types and styles of bed skirts, you need to determine the length you need. Always measure from the bottom of the mattress to the floor. Your goal is to have the fabric just brushing the floor or slightly above it. Bed skirts typically come in 14- and 16-inch lengths.
A typical bed skirt relies on a muslin-type decking with the skirting running across three sides. This version requires you to lift the mattress to place the decking underneath, which can be a chore. In addition, thicker mattresses and box springs make it challenging to achieve the needed length with this type of bed skirt.
Three-panel bed skirts solve this problem by discarding the decking and using only the three hanging panels. The panels are slipped under the mattress, pinned to the box spring or frame, or wrapped via a tie or elastic cord. This style of bed skirt is also much easier to wash, letting you avoid worries that the decking may shrink.
Wrinkle and fade resistant fabric choices help ease bed making chores and keep your room looking pretty for years to come.
Walmart.ca carries well-known home decor brands like Celine Linen and Impressions in a variety of fabrics and colours, so decorating your bedroom is as simple as choosing your favourite. At first glance, you can see that bed skirts come in several traditional styles, which can be intermixed.
Layered bed skirts can have two fabrics the same length or tiers of different lengths. Box-pleated styles typically have one pleat in the center of each side and one on the corners.
Lacy, white eyelet skirts look adorable in a little girl’s room, and tightly gathered, layered dust ruffles are the height of romance, providing a pleasant contrast to Victorian headboards.
Platform and wooden frame beds need the tailored, clean look of a box-style microfibre dust ruffle. It lies so smooth it almost looks part of your bed frame, emphasizing a spare, minimalist design. Show off your farmhouse-chic style with a softly-gathered variety in an off-white shade, perhaps with a ruffled hem, and a reversible quilt to lay over the top the bed.
Don’t forget the importance of a bed skirt in a college dorm room where everything gets shoved under the bed. After all, there’s only so much space in a shared quad-room. Comfy Feet has bed skirts, sheet sets and pillows decorated in your favourite college mascots, letting you show school spirit and hide your private belongings.
Whether you’re remodelling your bedroom or just suddenly noticing how unsightly your box springs look, Walmart.ca’s bed skirts can solve a decorating dilemma while adding ambiance and character to your room.
