If you want to add more style to your baby’s crib bedding, the easiest way is by using crib skirts. Besides being decorative, the skirts also help to cover up and manage dust under-the-bed area. The most important thing to consider when shopping for crib skirts is to measure the size. Make sure you buy the correct size depending on the size of the box spring. Do not forget to measure the distance from the box spring top to the floor so the skirt can perfectly drop down to fall hiding the area under the bed without leaving a gap.
Not only are crib skirts available in various sizes, they also come in some different styles so you can always find the one to complement your nursery decor. If the nursery is decorated in a modern design, a solid colored skirt will be suitable. For a transitional styled room, the best option is the pleated skirt. Meanwhile, if you want to set a traditional look, try an eyelet skirt. Or, do you want to add some glamor to the room? Think about ruffled skirts, then. Who can resist the charm of the long-dropped ruffled skirt?
When using crib skirts, you should know how to care for them as they can become dirty easily. That is why cleaning them regularly is a necessity. Regular cleaning includes vacuuming at least once a week. Meanwhile, a wash should be performed at least once a month. Bed skirts made of linen or cotton are can be washed easily. However, other skirts especially those made of heavier fabric might need special care. Always follow the care instructions from the manufacturer. Proper cleaning and care make the skirt look fresh and clean.
A crib can also be purchased as a part of a bedding set. If you buy it separately as an individual piece, make sure the color matches other bedding, pieces used in the crib.
