What is a bed skirt? Often referred to as a dust ruffle, a bed skirt is a fabric cloth that drapes around the sides of the box spring of a bed, covering the empty space between the floor and the underside of the bed. Bed skirts are used to decorate a bed, usually in a color that matches the either linen or the general room decor. They can be matched with decorative pillow shams, which are used to add an elegant look to just about any bed.
