If you are looking for something special…a wow factor in the bedroom, look no further than our canopy bed ideas. An imposing stance, they deliver a visual feast, something dramatic…and very romantic too. They are becoming increasingly popular as people look to achieve ‘wow’ factors throughout their homes.

Originally, the point of a canopy bed was to conserve the warmth and offer an element of privacy. Historically, they were very ornate, four post and had fabric draped over the top, down the sides. These days, we see a more modern take on things. Often, you will see the structure of a canopy bed but without the material draped over it. However, they are designed to do that and the option remains. Often, in colder climates, having material draped over the canopy bed helps to regulate the temperature.

So, lets check out a few great canopy bed ideas…i have selected these to reflect a modern styling, yet each image delivers a very different design ethos.

How do I turn my bed into a canopy?

You have a couple of options. If you have a four post bed, you can drape the material over it or pin it to the sides. Assuming that you don’t have a canopy bed, then you can attach the material to your ceiling. This can be done by pinning the material directly to the ceiling or you can attach a curtain rod to the ceiling and drape the material from there.

What is the point of a canopy bed?

Originally, canopy beds were intended to offer privacy and conserve warmth. Obviously, this was before modern heating systems. However, as we move to reduce our carbon footprint, going back to ‘old’ methods can help us achieve this. Canopy beds is one such idea.

Can you use regular curtains for a canopy bed?

Simply, yes you can pretty much use any material you like. Historically, sheer material and satin has been used to give a more mystical and romantic feel. However, there is nothing stopping you using whatever material you want.

How much fabric do you need for a bed canopy?

The standard answer is that you need to use 3/4 yard of material for every foot. This is measured from the floor to the top of the bed post of your canopy bed.

What material is used for bed canopy?

Sheer material and satin has been used to give a more mystical and romantic feel, but you choose whatever material you want. You just need to establish the purpose of it.

Are bed canopies safe?

For adults, they are perfectly safe. However, for children’s nurseries and bedrooms, you need to be very careful. For young children and babies, there is a risk of strangulation, so i would not even consider it for them. Obviously, there are other hazards to consider such as candles, but for older children and adults, it should not pose any issues.

I hope you found these canopy bed ideas engaging and it has helped you define your own design ideas. Remember, they are becoming more common now so make sure you shop around as the price is increasingly falling. The expectation of high prices is no more. If you are lucky to have a home with high ceilings, canopy beds are a must…make the most of those tall spaces to really show off that space.
