About our Four Poster Bed Frames

Why are four poster beds good?

The romantic appeal of the 4 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 four poster beds or canopy beds have changed with the times, the structure 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 4 poster bed for me?

Everyone knows about 4 poster beds, but rarely do people consider buying one because of their perception of being expensive and cumbersome beds. While canopy beds 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 one of these bed frames 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.
  • 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 4 poster canopy bed and can take into account the interior design challenges which come with them, then a four poster bed is definitely for you. White and black metal four poster beds are among the most popular.

What colours are your four poster beds?

We have various designs available, made of various materials including natural wood, painted wood and metal 4 poster bed frames. We usually stock our beds in black, white and ivory and our wood beds in white. Black 4 poster beds are the most popular colour.

Our metal 4 poster bed frame designs can also include some upholstered fabric panels. These panels add much needed blocks of colour and patterns to the imposing stature of the bed.

All these options are quite customisable so if you need a specific design to get in touch with us for more information.

What types of 4 poster beds are there?

There are a number of styles, designs and with a number of materials. More traditional styles of four poster beds are going out of favour and more modern and simplified designs are becoming more popular.

What sizes are four poster beds available in?

Our canopy beds are available in most UK sizes including single, small double, double, king and super king.

Mostly popular for larger rooms, the king size 4 poster beds and super king size are the more popular sizes. Double bed frames are becoming more common, especially with newer interior ideas which help the large bed be the centre of the bedroom but not in an over imposing manner.
