What is a bed skirt?
A bed skirt is a covering for the sides of box spring mattresses and bed bases. It’s generally made from fabric and serves two purposes: to stop dust from gathering under a bed and to offer an attractive way to cover the space under the bed frame. Well-designed, custom bed skirts will often complement the interior design of the bedroom, particularly in hotels and other accommodations. Typically the bed skirt matches the window drapery or another design element in the room.
What are Fitted box springs?
The fitted box spring style is becoming increasingly popular in the hospitality industry. They are designed to cover or wrap around a box spring mattress, like a fitted sheet. These box spring covers are ideal for hotels that have platform bed bases or box frames where only the box spring mattress is exposed. As compared to the traditional metal frames where a bed skirt would be ideal. Our fitted box springs come in two different styles: the box spring wrap and box spring cover.
Box Spring Wrap
The fitted box spring wrap has an elasticized fitting on both the top and bottom of the wrap. Allowing the wrap to be easily placed over the box spring without having to completely remove the mattress.
Box Spring Cover
The box spring cover is designed similar to a fitted sheet. A white poly-cotton decking is used on the top of the box spring cover while the sides has the elasticized bottom to fit tightly over the box spring.
HOTEL BED SKIRT & Box Spring Cover STYLES
Bed skirts come in several different style options. Here are the main and most frequently purchased styles that Eden Textile manufactures:
This modern look uniformly contours the box spring. This sleek look does not have any pleats and provides a clean and simple accent to the bed
The box pleat style utilities five pleats: one on each corner at the foot of the bed and one in the middle of the three exposed sides.
If you want to go for a more traditional style, then getting the corner pleat bed skirt is ideal. This style features pleats at every corner of the bed.
Fitted Box Spring Style
This style has an elasticized fitted cover for the box spring giving a sleek modern look to your bed that reveals the bed's base. Available in a wrap or cover style.
Box Spring Cover
When it comes to choosing the best bed skirt or box spring cover for your hotel guest room, there are some key considerations. Depending on your hotel’s style, décor and bed frame, some options and styles may be more appropriate than others. We look at the two key considerations to make when purchasing hotel bed skirts or box spring covers:
– Pairing the right style for to the bed frame or base
– Choosing the right fabric for function and design

STYLES FOR MY HOTEL BED FRAME OR BASE
We recommend a highly durable fabric made of 100% polyester for your hotel bed skirts and box spring covers. Similar to choosing a drapery fabric, a durable 100% polyester fabric will keep its shape, less likely to hold onto dirt and stains between washes and last longer over time.
Matching the colour to another design element inside the room can really bring everything together, helping to make a great first impression on guests. Bed skirts are often washed less frequently as compared to the terry and linens, so choosing darker fabrics or busier patterns assist in hiding dirt as compared to lighter colours.
There are also new and creative options that our Textile Experts have been researching. A newer option that is great for box spring covers is a faux leather fabric made of 100% polyester. This fabric has a luxurious look, but is highly practical. Dirt or dust can be easily wiped away or spot cleaned due to the smooth surface. This allows housekeepers to easily care for the box spring wrap without having to remove the cover entirely off the bed.
