A four poster bed is a bed with a post (a pole positioned vertically) at each corner, and these poles/posts are designed to support bed accessories such as drapes (heavy curtains that can be drawn on each side of the bed) or a veil (thin gossamer that falls to the floor around the bed).
How Can It Improve Your Room?
A four poster bed is designed to absolutely dominate the bedroom, and take all attention away from the other furniture, which makes it idea if you want to shove an old dresser into a corner or are concerned about any stains or discolorations on the carpet.
Not only is a four poster bed a bit of a statement, it’s also one of the sturdiest and stylish designs available, which isn’t usually the case. The posts can be carved in any fashion you like, and combined with the design of the bed itself, the type of wood or metal you wish for the frame to be made of, and the covers you use, you can customize your four poster bed to complement any theme or style recurrent in your room.
What Should You Look For?
There are some things you need to be careful of when you’re looking to buy a four poster bed. For instance, you may not have space in your room for the bed that you’ve set your sights on, and unlike with other designs you need to account for the height of your room.
