Canopy Beds Buying Guide

Often featured in period movies and exotic vacation getaways, canopy beds appeal to our romantic side. For children, they feel fortlike and protective. For adults, they add a prominent, decorative focal point that can elevate a dull bedroom.

Types of Canopy Beds

Types of Canopy Beds

Canopy beds are also called tester beds, and they come in every size: twin, full, queen, and king. The posts are full-height, and a framework attaches near the top of the posts to create a perimeter around the bed. From this framework you can hang curtains or a fabric canopy. Here are the types of canopy beds.

Material

Canopy beds are most often made from stained wood, but they can be made of metal as well. The framework might be permanently attached, or it may be removable. The canopy or bed dressings also may come with the bed.

Style

Canopy beds date to the early ages, when bed draperies were used to ward off chills and keep pests away. Most canopy beds today harken to those early European models and have a traditional, classic style, though there are modern and contemporary beds as well. When Europeans colonized in warm-weather climates, they took their bed styles with them, so many of these beds have a tropical look, with palm-frond carvings or dark exotic woods.

Removable Canopy

Some canopy beds have a permanent canopy, while others let you remove the rails to convert the bed to a simple poster style.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here are some things to keep in mind when you are shopping for a canopy bed.

Measure Carefully

When you buy a canopy bed, take note of your ceiling height and any ceiling features such as molding, beams, or fans. The bed might fit, but make sure there are several inches to spare so the bed doesn't look crammed into the space.

Height Restrictions

Work around or remove a ceiling fan or light fixture if you have one.

Cleanability

Make sure the canopy frame lets you easily remove the canopy or curtains for washing.
