About our Four Poster Bed Frames

Why are four poster beds good?

The romantic appeal of the four poster bed frames has long been recognised within the furniture landscape and the history of the British Isles. In the often cold and draughty high ceilings of the bed chambers of the time, heavy drapes provided more than just an aesthetic appeal as they would have been drawn at night for warmth and privacy. Nowadays, people are drawn to four poster beds for the imposing aesthetic they lend to a bedroom.

Whilst the design of the four poster beds have changed with the times, the structure of the four poster has remained largely unaltered through the centuries. Four vertical posts rise from the corners of the bed to support a canopy frame. From the canopy one can hang drapes or curtains.

Is a four poster bed for me?

Everyone knows about four poster beds, but rarely do people consider buying one because of their perception of being expensive and cumbersome beds. While they used to work well only in larger rooms, modern four poster beds with slimmer overall design, less 'meaty' legs and smaller canopies work well even in apartments and smaller rooms. So if you're interested in a four poster bed then you have a few points to consider.

  • The bed is going to be the centre of your room. Your statement piece. If that's something you want, four poster beds are a really good fit for you.
  • Your room is going to look smaller than it is unless you have a very large room. Are you willing to compromise on the feeling of space in your bedroom? You don't lose very much usable space with slimmer modern four poster beds. But they still make small rooms looks smaller.
  • Height is an issue sometimes and it just doesn't look right if the canopy of the bed almost touches the ceiling. Some four poster beds can be customised so you can get around this issue.

If you like the romance and grandeur of a four poster bed and can take into account the interior design challenges which come with them, then a four poster bed is definitely for you.
