Alice has a question about bedskirts, covering the box-spring and bed frame:
Hi AT! I just bought my first queen bed: mattress, box-spring, and standard metal bed frame. I was wondering that the standard was for bed dressing basics. Is a bedskirt the only option for covering the box-spring and bed frame? I haven't been able to find non-"skirt-y" skirts. Also, I see a box-spring cover selling online at West Elm. Will these cover the bed frame too? What do you guys usually do with your bed?

Hi Alice, we think the box-spring cover at West Elm is a great option if you don't want to have anything covering the bottom of your bed. Unfortunately for us, we need the storage space underneath, so a bedskirt is necessary in our bedroom. We've found a very flat, clean lined bedskirt that was not ruffle-y or gathered and just has a few simple flat box pleats via Macy's hotel collection. What do you AT readers do? Do you use a bedskirt? Anyone found any other modern bedskirt options? Or have you guys used other solutions? Share in the comments!
