Bed Skirts & Shams Often referred to as a dust ruffle, a bed skirt is a fabric cloth that drapes around the sides of the box spring, covering the empty space between the floor and the bed. They come in both ruffled and tailored styles & are used to decorate a bed, usually in a color that matches either the sheets or the overall room decor. Match them with a decorative pillow sham in queen, king, or standard sizes, which add a touch of elegance to the room. Hide all your clutter beneath the bed while keeping your room looking neat. They also keep dust and dirt out from underneath the beds, keeping those areas where vacuum cleaners can't reach free from dust and other allergens. With lots of choices starting at only $16.99, you can get one for just about any bed in the house. From the king and queen size beds in the master bedroom, to the day bed in the parlor, a bed skirt is a great way to really add a touch of class to your home.
