Some might not consider the bed skirt a key feature when it comes to the beauty of bed, with its coverlet, quilt, pillows and appeal in a bedroom. However, this small bedding component plays a significant role, especially for the beautiful queen size mattress, the most popular one by far.
The dimensions for a queen are set at the standard 60 inches wide by approximately 80 inches long. These numbers mean everything when looking for the ideal bed skirts queen for your home. One must also consider the drop measurement. That equals the length from the top of the box spring or foundation to the floor. The traditional drop length most brands sell is about 14 inches, with some brands featuring an adjustable drop.
The best bed skirts for this size mattress will be easy care fabrics that one can toss in the washing machine and then dry. Microfiber polyester is a modern material that makes for exceptional skirts, because it's rich-looking, soft and comfortable, a high-quality fabric and not a hassle cleaning. Also, microfiber polyester is dyed in a beautiful palette of shades to choose from, depending on your bedroom color scheme.
The perfect bed skirts queen also come in a variety of styles to select from. There are gathered skirts which show off a feminine look with loose, lovely folds. The corners of the skirt also split so that the bed posts can be exposed.
The tailored skirt is another option for the queen bed with its streamlined shape. This style is constructed from one or more flat panels of fabric. The look is clean, and if there is a pattern in the skirt, its design is more prominent, because it's not hidden in the folds like a gathered skirt option.
Romantic bed skirts for the queen bed can include lace, fringe, and eyelet to show off a more delicate drop and grazing along the floor. There are also embellishments with embroidery, tulle, chenille and crystals.
The bed skirt is an essential detail in defining a queen size mattress and all its components.
