Long considered a sign of luxury, four-poster beds carved and decorated in the most expensive ways were no longer for everyone and now this is affordable luxury that you can get anytime. They are making a big comeback and everyone wants them! Why? Because a four-poster bed is super dreamy and you don’t want to leave it when you get in, it is very comfortable to sleep in. Second, because many of us prefer open-plan layouts these days, and a four-poster bed is a perfect idea to make your bed’s sleeping area more private.
There are so many different options these days that you can easily find a four-poster bed that will suit almost any interior, from modern or rustic to industrial or glamorous. In fact, four-poster beds can be used without any fabric just to achieve a stylish look or even to make a statement. If you use fabric, you can hang lights and even planters on the frame too. Open four-poster beds bring in perfect style and still bring in more light, so this is a very popular option. If you don’t have such a bed, you can build it yourself or just attach some frames to the ceiling and hang a canopy on it. Let’s look at both options to decide which is better.
An open four-poster bed means you can use it as it is or add a canopy or curtains of your choice. Such a bed always lets in a lot of light, but still makes your bedroom more stylish and eye-catching, and you can even make a statement with it. The most popular option here is a metal bed – nickel, copper, brass – with a glossy finish, as it looks super chic and stylish and easily fits into many bedroom decorating styles. Try a wood frame bed for more comfort. If you have a room in neutral colors, a dark wooden bed looks fantastic. A black metal frame bed is another great idea that goes with any style. If you want to play with the bed look, we recommend that you choose a Lucite frame bed with brass elements. If you need some privacy or just want to create a dreamy feel, add airy curtains or fabric over the frame and voila!
Canopies attached to the ceiling
If you don’t have a framed four-poster bed but still want a four-poster bed, there is one thing you can hang up quickly and easily: just attach some frames to the ceiling. You can just add frames to hang the curtains around your bed or imitate an entire frame hanging over the bed. Just make sure it is securely attached. Hang up the curtains of your choice: airy and flowing, or super boldly patterned, to make a colorful statement. Get inspired!
