Bed Skirts & Daybed Covers

Unlike your sheets, blankets, comforters and other types of bedding, bed skirts and daybed covers might not keep you warm or comfortable at night, but they certainly help your sleeping area look more put-together and inviting. For the most part, their function is purely to make your bed more attractive, conceal hardware and box springs, hide anything you may keep beneath your bed or brighten up your room. A daybed cover can also change the function of your daybed, creating a comfortable place to sleep at night and a relaxing place to sit while you’re awake. This is especially useful for daybeds in rooms that serve as more than just bedrooms.

Pottery Barn offers an assortment of eco-friendly bed skirts in various colors, textures, fabrics and patterns. When choosing a color, you can refer to the rest of your bedding and the decor in your bedroom. Do you use bright, vivid colors or calm, soothing tones? If you can’t find an exact match, consider a neutral bed skirt in a color such as white, ivory or gray. Think about how the bed skirt will look against your comforter, duvet cover or quilt. Because it’ll be close to the floor, you may even want to think about how well it harmonizes with your rug.

Bed skirts also come in variety of styles and patterns. A simple straight bed skirt can look nice on practically any bed. If you prefer something that offers a little more detail, choose a pleated or ruffled option, or one with a lightly textured pattern woven into the fabric. A voile cotton skirt adds a soft touch to your space, while a fabric such as linen looks crisp and generally offers cleaner lines. No matter which style or color of bed skirt you choose, be sure you look for one that matches the size of your bed for a secure fit. Some may only be available in larger sizes, such as full, queen or king, while others are not always available for king or cal. king beds.

Chances are, you don’t actually touch your bed skirt while you’re sound asleep in your bed, but it’s still important to pay attention to the type of fabric used to make it. Cotton, cotton-and-linen blends and pure linen are common options. All of these are machine washable, making them both soft and convenient options. You may also find bed skirts with a variety of thread counts. Bed skirts woven with organic cotton are also available; this means the cotton used was not grown with pesticides and other harmful chemicals, making it a safe option for your health and the environment.

Daybed covers are also available in organic cotton, along with other options. When choosing one, look for a design that matches your other bedding, much like you would a bed skirt. Most daybeds have sheets, a quilt or comforter and decorative pillows and shams, so search for a daybed cover that brings all of those pieces together or a neutral color that matches all of your decor.

Daybed covers typically extend over both ends of your bed in addition to the front and can help make your daybed look softer and more comfortable. If you use the space beneath your daybed for storage, a nice cover keeps it all out of sight. In general, these covers are one-size-fits-all.

When decorating your bedroom, choosing your bedding is an important part of the process, but it can be easy to overlook a piece like a bed skirt or a daybed cover because they’re not necessary for a good night’s sleep. However, you may find yourself soon remembering to pick one up; these simple pieces can be just the finishing touch your room needs.
