DIY Bed Skirt for Metal Frame: Enhance Your Bedroom's Aesthetics

Metal bed frames are known for their durability and sleek design, but they might not always fit the aesthetic you’re aiming for in your bedroom. A DIY bed skirt can be the perfect solution to conceal the frame and add an elegant touch to your bed’s overall look. This guide will walk you through creating a bed skirt specifically designed for metal frames.

DIY Bed Skirt for Metal Frame

Creating a DIY bed skirt for a metal bed frame is a straightforward project that can significantly enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bedroom. Here’s a detailed approach:

Materials Needed:


  1. Measure Your Bed Frame: Start by measuring the length and width of your metal bed frame. Also, measure the height from the top of the frame (where the mattress sits) to the floor to determine how long your bed skirt needs to be.

  2. Select and Prepare Your Fabric: Based on your measurements, choose a fabric that complements your bedroom’s theme. Wash and iron the fabric if necessary before cutting to prevent any future shrinkage.

  3. Cut the Fabric: With your measurements in hand, cut your fabric to size, adding a few inches on each side for hemming. If your bed frame has a footboard, you may need to create separate sections for each side of the bed.

  4. Hem the Edges: Hem the bottom and sides of the fabric to give your bed skirt a finished look. You can use a sewing machine for durability or fabric glue for a no-sew option.

  5. Attach Velcro: Sew or glue the hook side of the Velcro strips to the top edge of your bed skirt. Place the loop side of the Velcro strips onto your metal bed frame, corresponding to where the fabric will attach.

  6. Attach the Bed Skirt to the Frame: Once the Velcro is in place, align the bed skirt with the frame, pressing the fabric against the Velcro strips to secure it. Adjust as necessary to ensure a neat fit.

Enhancing your newly skirted bed with the right mattress can elevate your sleep experience to new heights. The luxurious comfort of a Puffy Lux Mattress complements the aesthetic appeal of your DIY bed skirt, ensuring both style and unparalleled comfort in your bedroom sanctuary.

How to Put a Bed Skirt on a Metal Bed Frame

Installing a DIY bed skirt on a metal frame is simplified using the Velcro method:

  1. Preparation: Begin by clearing the area around your bed frame to make the installation process easier. Remove the mattress to access the frame.

  2. Attach Velcro to the Frame: Place the loop side of the Velcro strips at regular intervals along the metal frame, focusing on the head, sides, and foot of the bed. Ensure the strips are securely attached and evenly spaced.

  3. Align and Attach the Bed Skirt: Starting at one corner, carefully align the top edge of the bed skirt (with the hook side of the Velcro) with the corresponding Velcro strips on the frame. Press down firmly to attach the fabric to the strips, moving around the bed until the skirt is fully in place.

  4. Fine-Tuning: Once the bed skirt is attached, make any necessary adjustments to ensure it hangs evenly on all sides. This may involve repositioning some of the Velcro strips on the frame or adjusting the fabric’s placement.

  5. Replace the Mattress: With the bed skirt securely attached, you can now replace the mattress. Take a moment to smooth out any wrinkles in the bed skirt and ensure it’s displaying as intended.

Incorporating a Puffy Lux Mattress on your newly skirted bed frame can significantly enhance your bedroom’s comfort and visual appeal. The luxurious feel of a the mattress, paired with your custom DIY bed skirt, creates a cozy and stylish sleeping environment.
