Different Types of Bed Skirts
Just as there are sheets, duvets, blankets, and pillows, there are a variety of different types of bed skirts available for your home. Dust ruffles and bed skirts can match the theme of your bedroom, the color, or even the same pattern of your favorite duvet or bedding.
The most popular types of bed skirts are the gathered and pleated. Tailored bed skirts are also a popular choice, which are available as a straight piece of fabric without pleats or a single pleat on each side. Layered dust ruffles are also a good choice for luxury bedrooms. Layered bed skirts are typically created with a solid piece of fabric on the underside of the skirt, and a layer of sheer fabric, like organza, that is layered on the outside of the skirt.
In addition to the large variety of styles, there are also different sizes of bed skirts available. The two main lengths for luxury dust ruffles are 14” and 16” inches. Recently though, the mattress industry has been marketing and manufacturing deeper and wider mattresses for homes, so the bedding industry has made creative efforts to keep up, with the creation of the modern luxury bed skirt.
