A canopy bed started out as a necessary component of pre 16th century home design. Up to that point, all canopy beds were essentially the same – more function, less form. A simple four poster canopy bed was an additional layer to protect its inhabitants from the elements. After the 16th century, canopy beds started to evolve with more intricate designs and construction quality.
Modern canopy beds usually fall into one of two categories: either modern or traditional. Modern canopy beds feature sleek, smooth wood cuts. They are either stained with a darker wood color, or a high contrast grain. Traditional canopy beds tend to have more regal, intricate wood carvings, and are usually comprised of classic woods such as maple or cherry (or are stained to imitate these woods).
A queen canopy bed is a nice addition to a bedroom with higher ceilings, or if you have an affinity for drapes. What other platform beds lack compared to a canopy bed is the ability to transform the look of the bed without any costly physical modifications – all it takes is a new set of drapes to hang over your bed and you'll be set!
Taking height into consideration is important if you're looking to buy a canopy bed. Buying a bed that's too tall can make the room look uncomfortably cramped, while getting a canopy bed that's a little too short can even make the mighty king sized bed look just a little too small. We've tried our best to offer canopy beds that fall in that Goldilocks zone of height, but it's important to keep an eye out for that elsewhere. We're always here to answer questions, so feel free to give us a call if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!
