How to Attach a Bed Skirt: A Comprehensive Guide for a Neat Bedroom

A bed skirt is a stylish addition to any bedroom setup, adding elegance while concealing under-bed storage and reducing dust collection. Attaching a bed skirt might seem daunting, but with the right tools and techniques, it can be a straightforward task.

This guide will walk you through various methods to attach a bed skirt, including the popular Velcro method, which is perfect for quick changes and easy laundering.

How to Attach a Bed Skirt

Attaching a bed skirt properly is key to achieving a polished look for your bedroom setup. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to securely fit a bed skirt around your bed frame or box spring, ensuring it stays neatly in place.

Materials Needed:

Steps to Attach a Bed Skirt:

  1. Prepare the Bed Skirt: Remove the bed skirt from its packaging and iron it if necessary to remove any wrinkles. This helps ensure a clean, crisp appearance once installed.

  2. Lift the Mattress: Carefully lift the mattress off the box spring and set it aside. This might require two people, depending on the mattress size and weight.

  3. Position the Bed Skirt: Drape the bed skirt over the box spring or bed base, making sure that the decorative edges hang evenly on all sides. The top edge of the bed skirt should align with the edge of the box spring.

  4. Secure with Pins:

    • Start at one corner, using straight pins or specially designed bed skirt pins to secure the fabric to the box spring. Insert the pins at an angle to grip more fabric and provide a better hold.
    • Continue pinning around the perimeter of the box spring, spacing pins about 12-18 inches apart to ensure the bed skirt is taut and even.
  5. Replace the Mattress: Carefully place the mattress back on the box spring, being careful not to shift the newly pinned bed skirt.

  6. Final Adjustments: Walk around the bed and make any necessary adjustments to the hang of the bed skirt, ensuring it is even and straight.

Attaching a bed skirt to the right mattress can greatly enhance the bedroom’s aesthetic while complementing the mattress’s comfort and style. The neatness of a well-placed bed skirt can mirror the clean lines and luxurious feel of Puffy mattresses, making for a harmonious bedroom environment.

How to Attach a Bed Skirt with Velcro

Using Velcro to attach a bed skirt simplifies the process and allows for easy removal and attachment, which is particularly handy for laundering the skirt.

Materials Needed:

Steps to Attach with Velcro:

  1. Measure and Cut Velcro: Measure the perimeter of your box spring to determine the length of Velcro needed. Cut the Velcro strips to match this measurement.

  2. Attach Velcro to the Bed Skirt:

    • Apply one side of the Velcro (either hooks or loops) along the top edge of the bed skirt. This can be done by sewing for a durable attachment or using fabric glue for a no-sew option.
    • Ensure that the Velcro strip runs evenly along the entire top edge for a uniform look.
  3. Attach Velcro to the Box Spring:

    • Clean the box spring surface where the Velcro will be attached to ensure it is free from dust and lint.
    • Attach the corresponding Velcro strip (opposite side of what was used on the skirt) directly onto the box spring. This can be glued or can adhere to some box springs with a self-adhesive backing that some Velcro strips offer.
  4. Connect the Bed Skirt:

    • Align the Velcro strips on the bed skirt with those on the box spring, starting at one corner and pressing firmly along the length to secure the skirt in place.
    • Adjust as necessary to ensure the skirt hangs evenly on all sides.
  5. Easy Removal for Cleaning: One of the major benefits of using Velcro is the ease of removal. Simply pull the fabric gently away from the box spring to detach it, clean the skirt, and reattach it following the same steps.
