Bottom of Bed Glossary
BOX SPRING COVER
A bottom of bed cover that begins at the top of the box spring and covers only the box spring, typically 1” or less. Anything below the box spring will remain uncovered.
Spans the full width and length of the platform, holding the bottom of bed treatment in place. Decorative fabric is seamed to the platform to create the drop.
A bottom of bed cover that begins at the top of the box spring and finished 1/2” off of the floor. This covers the box spring and the space below to the floor.
Additional 3”-4” of drop fabric added to the 3 sides of the deck (sewn atop), minimizing the appearance when the box spring shifts.
Production detail to minimize movement/shifting ensuring tight fit over box spring. This 6” feature is cost efficient and highly effective.
An interior “fitted sheet” utilizing continuous elastic to minimize movement and secure to box spring. Internal component, not visible to the guest.
Elastic is sewn into the bottom edge all around the box spring cover, therefore making it ‘continuous’ on all sides of the drop.
To prevent puckering or gathering of decorative fabric, we will often use elastic in corners only. A 12” piece of elastic is added to the corner (6” on either side of the seam).
This extra layer of poly/cotton fabric may be used to add weight and fullness to the overall aesthetic.
