Do you use a bed valance around the bottom of your bed?

Does it always match your sheets?

I always do and I have a white one so while it does not always match the colour of my doona covers, it blends in well.

I have just bought (online) a stretch valance so you can easily get it on and off to wash -it just fits snuggly round the bottom of the bed and not underneath the mattress.

Finy! that is a wonderful idea (one that go's around the bed, and not under it)!

I find them impossible...they would move a tad every day.

I now just use my bedspread to cover what is under my bed.
Hear, hear!

No I don't use a valance. I don't like changing sheets so I don't want to add an extra sheet

I used to use a bed valance around the bottom of my bed! But ever since I got rid of the ensemble and got myself a bed frame, I haven't had to use bed valances anymore! One less thing to spend on and wash!
No, too frilly & useless, & another item to wash!
Don't use bedspread anymore, either.

Just keep top sheet neat, & tidy (Summer), or doona same, in Winter.

Mine is perfectly plain -no frills -my last one also had no frills but was difficult to put on as it went under the mattress.
I think it looks better than seeing a mattress and blends in with the sheets....but IO don't like frills either and would not have frills on my bed.

Oh! Finy, there's nobody to ever see my mattress sides, so that part doesn't worry me! Cheers!

I have a pleated valance on my bed which contrasts with my bed linen. I have purchased a fitted one for my grandson so there are several options for different types of valances and not just frilly.
I have always had a lovely if plain valance on my bed,ever since marrying! I do think that they add a nice finishing touch to the made bed.
I don't use a valance. I always thought these looked old fashioned, but now I think they would look much better than seeing everything that's under the bed. Perhaps I should invest in one.

No. They are shocking things to put on the bed. Terribly difficult to put on. We used to have them, then decided that they are just too much fuss and threw them all away. Besides, they are so close to the floor that they get very dirty and got caught in the vacuum cleaner etc. Forget it!!!
Oh, how many fights I have had trying to get the vacuum cleaner to give back the valance!! The valance is now long gone.
by Rice
I didn't know there was a word for those until just now. Nope, I don't have one. It would be one more thing to wash.
I don't have a valance. As far as hiding things stored under the bed, I usually have my bedroom door closed if we have visitors.
NO, & I’ve never had 1.
No, my bed making skills are pretty simple and straight forward. Can't be bothered spending time doing all the tucking in etc to get the fanciful look. Just straight forward practical for me.
YES - in neutral colour to match everything. Not into frills at any time. It hides the suitcases and banana lounge living under the bed - with the cat.
It's great for catching cat fur! :-)
I recently purchased a quilt cover set that came with a valance, I keep meaning to put it on but I haven't gotten around to it yet :p
Validhiel, Have you got the valance on the bed yet? I have 4 drawers around my bed-base, so 1 of those would be extremely unpractical for me!
by Miro
no, have tried them and do not like, not that fond of the doonas either, although I have one on my bed, whatever happened to the neat and tidy bedspreads of years ago, they would cover the sides of the bed and whatever was hidden underneath, although i do have a bed base and that is low to the floor and nothing can be stored underneath it
