Bedding

I have a four poster bed. My bed sits on a low profile box spring. Unfortunately my duvet is too short and even if it wasn't, the box spring would still show if the duvet was folded back. How can I hide the box spring without any fabric hanging out from the frame of the bed?

Can you order a flat sheet in the same fabric? Use that to cover the boxspring in a neat tight cover for the edges.

I have a similar issue with a sleigh bed. I really have to tug to get the duvet to cover the box spring and mattress. I make the bed with nice sheets and a coverlet for the blanket and then fold the duvet back to the bottom of the bed. Another option is to take the comforter out of the duvet and use a blanket or coverlet for the blanket. It will make the duvet a little longer.

I think restoration hardware still sells box spring covers that match their sheet sets

perhaps a bed skirt for a bed smaller than your bed so it hangs shorter all the way around?

Have you tried just covering the box spring with a fitted sheet? It works for Martha Stewart!

I have the same issue with our sleigh bed. What I usually end up doing is buying a king comforter for our queen size mattress set. In your case, you could do as several others have mentioned and cover the boxspring or, if you're handy with the sewing machine, sew a ruffle or extra 3 inches of fabric on either side and bottom of your comforter in the black.

Fantastic suggestions! I'm going to see if I can find a fitted sheet to match and also look for a coverlet for a layered look. Thank you!
