Bed skirts are back!

Bed skirts are back in fashion. No, really. They are! And here’s why: they’re ideal for under bed storage. A stylish alternative to under bed storage drawers or wheeled boxes, bed skirts (or ‘valances’ if you want to get really fancy), come in a range of high-quality, high-fashion materials – perfect for elevating your bedroom.

Totally textured  

It’s no secret that layering is great for creating texture, but did you know it’s also perfect for hiding all your under bed clutter? Choose a linen fabric for a crisp, woven finish, and low-key natural tones for an understated elegance. Add bedspread upon bedspread to complete the style. You can always keep spare sheets hidden with all that extra under bed storage!

Natural, Nordic style.

We love this look created by Swedish home stylist Pella Hedeby. The minimalist, mineral-inspired greys nail the natural Nordic trend perfectly – (it is what she’s known for, after all!) Plus, the straight bed skirt creates a slate effect so stone-solid, you’d be forgiven for thinking there isn’t any storage under the bed at all!

Dramatic bedspreads

Perfect for adding a dose of drama to your decor, an oversized bedspread will flow over the sides of your bed for a sophisticated style that’s teeming with attitude. Rich brooding greens pair up perfectly with natural oatmeal browns, and create an eye-catching feature-piece. Not to mention, your infamous shoe collection is cleverly hidden away thanks to all that extra under bed storage.

Industrial charm

Create a contemporary look with just a hint of country. This modern, industrial style uses open shelving and natural materials like wood and metal to capture a casual atmosphere with functionality at its heart. The taxonomy artwork gives it a quirky country-esque finish, while the linen skirt offers an under bed storage solution that taps into its practical design aesthetic perfectly.

Simply Scandinavian

Create a feeling of stillness and calm with a touch of contemporary Scandinavia. Known for its simple shapes and natural tones, its infamously uncluttered aesthetic is perfect for relaxing in. This look uses sweet pops of colour and tapered wooden furniture legs for a hint of mid-century elegance. And, everyday mess is moved easily out-of-sight thanks to the discreet under bed storage.

Pleat chic

Effortlessly elegant, pleated valances come in classic and box pleat-style – perfect for creating a traditional or eclectic look. The pleats make under bed storage even easier to access due to the natural folds in the fabric. Available in a bright, bold range of colours, this makes them especially good at hiding clutter in kids bedrooms.

Classic x Contemporary

Why settle for one style? Combine classic colours and shapes with bold patterns and palettes for a modern twist on some old-fashioned favourites. This look uses a plain white base skirt to balance an eclectic mix of textures, including rich turned woods, brass accents and a coral motif that can’t help but steal your attention!

Kids under bed storage

The challenge of challenges: keeping your kid’s bedroom tidy. Especially if you’re short on space. Store toys, books and other painful to tread on bric-a-brac under the bed, then keep it out-of-sight with a bed skirt. Gentle pastel feature-colours create a playful feel and add a subtle contrast to muted natural tones. Neat. Nordic. A no-brainer.

The soft touch

Proving classic style is timeless style, this traditional valance in soft lavender creates a blissful bedroom you can really relax in. The natural folds in the fabric create an abundance of texture and offer the perfect under bed storage solution – even if your stuff doesn’t fit perfectly under the bed. The crisp whites add an open, airy feel to complement those delicate pastel hues.
