Sometimes we lack spare clean bed coats that we have to use a king size on a queen size mattress. Can we adjust it to fit a queen-size mattress? With little creativity we can. It is without using scissors and needles.
A queen-size mattress measures 60 x 80 inches, while a king-size bed measures 78 x 80 inches. In order to eliminate excess width, the bed edge must be inserted between the mattress and the box spring. How about the excess skirt? Collect the excess together and point it at the box spring.
While a king bed skirt can be customized to fit a queen size mattress, the way it looks is another thing to consider. It may not be appealing if it has a tight fit around the box, especially if it is in solid color.
This is the problem one has to face to use a king bed skirt on a queen size mattress. It is the difficulty with the tire type that is a piece with the tire fabric attached under the mattress. This also applies to the problem in the bed frame and mattress height for the skirt body.
To say that for every problem there is always a solution that is true. Today, bed skirts are available in three separate panels, one panel for each side of the bed. You will easily adjust the drop on the skirt without having the mattress removed to put it on. They come with pins so that you can place the skirt panel between the box spring and the mattress. Adjust the height and then press it down. This type is easy to remove but not as stable as the other type of construction, as it may lose its proper location.
The older styles usually come in 14 "or 16" drops which are often too long or too short considering that there is no standard height in the mattress and bed frame. In fact, a tire bed shirt is not adjustable as it comes in one piece. To remove it, the mattress must first be lifted which is very cumbersome but very stable because it will not lose its place.
How to fit the bed in the king size bed to a queen size mattress is quite awkward and not easy. You will need scissors, thread and sewing machine, that is, if you want to convert it permanently to fit into a queen-size mattress. There is a need to pull the excess in the middle of the box spring, creating a fold along the center length until it fits. Then sew along the middle weight and then cut the excess fabric from the newly sewn seam. Sure, the newly repaired bedding will not look as elegant as it should be. Why deal with the king size skirt on a queen size mattress when you can use it bedspread who reaches the floor?
