A New Canopy Bed Can Give You A Fresh New Look

You can add elegance to your bedroom with a canopy bed.  As you know, the bed is the heart and center of your bedroom. If you are looking for an elegant addition to your room, then these types of beds are the perfect solution.  Canopy beds are similar to a four poster bed with rods attached to the posts for hanging elegant and sensual drapery.

Modern Canopy Bed

If you are on the market for a traditional or modern canopy bed it is important to do your research to discover what styles and sizes are available. What distinguishes a modern style from other styles or periods is the use of materials and the overall design.

Standard canopies are the most common type found on the market today. These beds come with a complete canopy bed frame and a flat or arched ‘roof’ made of fabric. Many consumers who are going for a romantic feel in their room prefer standard canopy beds because the bed creates an elegant enclosure.  It can be designed with dainty fabrics or with more bold stripe patterns or leather for a more handsome and masculine appeal.

Standard canopies are easy to move and are not permanently fixed to the wall or the ceiling of your bedroom. The frames will come in wood and metal material depending on your preference. If you are pricing standard canopy beds expect to pay between $600 and $2,000 USD depending on the size of the bed frame.

Curtain rod styles are far more affordable than standard models. If you have a bed you want to turn into a canopy the most affordable way to go about doing this is investing in a curtain rod canopy. The rods are designed to be installed in the ceiling around the perimeter of the bed frame. Once the rod is installed you will simply add the drapes of your choice and you will have your own canopy. Curtain rod applications are very affordable. You can find rods in several different metal finishes for as little as $50 USD.

Your room should be comfortable and should also reflect your taste. If you are going for a modern or contemporary style consider adding some flare to your bedroom with a canopy bed. Browsing furniture inventories can give you a good idea as to what will fall within your budget.

Wood Canopy Beds

By far, the two most common styles are metal (think iron) and wooden canopy beds.  There are both square tubing types of designs, these will give you a more modern look and feel to the bed frame.  Then, the finer gauge round steel or iron bar types.  This is the ‘curtain rod’ version previously mentioned.

You can also go with something more rustic if that is your preferred style of decor.  You can find these already designed or if you’re adventurous, you can make your own using reclaimed or sandblasted wood.  This look is great for a shabby-chic types of bedroom designs.  You can frame this bed out using some mirrored bedroom furniture pieces or even a custom headboard.

Canopy Beds for Girls

A girls canopy bed is somewhat of a redundant concept if you poll most men in the world.  That is to say, most men don’t really have much interest in fanciful bedrooms or ornately designed bedroom spaces.  The only distinguishing characteristic to make between a boys and girls bed is really just a matter of decor.  You could just as easily have a Spiderman or jungle-themed boys canopy style with nets, tree trunks and such for the posts.
