As travel picks up and guests return, leave last year behind and upgrade the look of your beds. Read on for affordable solutions that are easy to implement and launder.
Bed skirts have long been a staple in hotels. They can bring a pop of color or texture into the room. However, the hospitality industry is seeing a shift toward platform beds to hold mattresses, and forgoing the bed skirt altogether. Guests love that “at home” look, even when traveling. And while we’ve seen the overall appearance of bed skirts modernize and become more aesthetically pleasing, housekeepers find bed skirts notoriously difficult to keep looking fresh and clean.

Made with hoteliers in mind, the Circa® Bed Wrap creates a faster, simpler, and more affordable way to get the clean, contemporary look of a platform bed without all the trouble and cost. Best part? It can be installed by only one person, using your existing mattress and box spring. By wrapping the Circa® around your bed frame and securing it in the back with buckles, you instantly have the sleek appearance of a platform bed.
Eco-friendly bamboo slats wrap carefully around your bed while providing structure and stability for the fabric. Our design team can even match the fabric with any current décor you may have. Be sure to check out our stock fabric options for Circa®, though!
The Circa® Bed Wrap has become a favorite among designers, hoteliers, and even home consumers as an affordable alternative to a platform bed.
A brand new bed skirt alternative is available now with our innovative, yet simple, Encircle™ Box Spring Cover. Eliminating the need for a bed skirt, Encircle™ stretches and covers your box spring, creating a modern and clean look. Encircle™ can work with various box spring heights and widths so your team can rely on a sleek fit, no matter the size.
Box spring covers are beneficial to hoteliers as they prevent normal wear and tear, thus extending the life of the product, and are a great defense against dust and allergens. As a bonus, Encircle™ is machine-washable and takes mere seconds to remove for laundering.
Encircle™ is stocked in two colors (Sand and Magnesium), but our design team can help you match any pattern or color to meet your preferred environment. Easy to install and quickly clean, Encircle™ is an efficient change any hotelier can implement while sticking to a budget.
Upgrading guest rooms can feel overwhelming and difficult to fit in the budget. We’re thrilled to offer affordable alternatives to help you make those improvements and leave 2020 in the past.
It’s a new year with a new you – and time we say goodbye to the bed skirt. Reach out to your consultant or contact our team for more information.
