How to pick the right bed skirts
Firstly, establish which bed skirt size you require; whether for a single, double, queen, king or super king bed. Some valances are elasticated and universally fit all sizes, which can eliminate the need to choose the correct size at all.
colour is also important, as you might want to choose a bed skirt that matches your bed clothes and décor. A neutral white, cream, light grey or black valance will match most styles, but the range of pigments and patterns available to you is almost inexhaustible.
There are several material varieties available too; cotton, poly-cotton blends, crushed velvet and more, in fitted and non-fitted designs. Frilly, ruffled, straight and pleated are the most typical and favoured options, so decide which look appeals to you the most and also fits your decorating style. Some valances wrap around a divan to add a splash of colour and panache to an otherwise mundane bed base, though most are comprised of material that simply hangs down.
