What is a four poster bed?
A four post bed is a usual bed where at least two people can sleep, but on each corner of a bed it contains a column. The columns can create a frame as in a canopy bed. Sometimes a four poster bed has an upper panel that serves as a ceiling. Usually four poster beds go without drapes or curtains but you may add them if you want to create a special atmosphere. Such bed is also called four poster canopy bed.
You may find a four poster king or queen bed — beds of the size of queen or king beds, but with columns on each side. The bed frames of such items are made of hardwood or metal, or from a combination of both materials. Usually they have headboards – if the frame material is wood, then a headboard can be decorated with carvings or ornaments; if the frame material is metal, then the headboard may be forged — such headboards look like true masterpieces.

If you already have curtains on the windows, then you may use a semi-transparent textile as drapes. If thick curtains create a private atmosphere, then semi-transparent create a charming, magical but at the same time elegant and breezy atmosphere.
- Four post bed with curtains keeps you warm — unsurprisingly the thick texture of folded curtains can keep the heat within the perimeter of the bed. If you live in a cold climate zone, then a four poster bed will keep you warm.
- A four poster canopy bed brings a bit of luxury in the bedroom. Even if you prefer not to use curtains, the four columns will create an elegant atmosphere. If the frame is made of wood, then probably columns have carvings. And if the frame is made of metal, the columns are beautifully forged.
- It protects you from the insects — but only if you use curtains. You may be surprised by this reason, but curtains can create truly private atmosphere.

How to choose a four poster bed?
If mainly you used wooden furniture to decorate your bedroom, then you should choose a wooden frame. At the same time, it won’t look weird if you place a four poster bed with a metal frame in a room where only wooden objects are used — this way the bed will stand out in the room.
If you prefer minimalism as a style, then don’t hang the curtains on each side of the bed or use semi-transparent curtains. If you want to create a private atmosphere in the room, then you may hang thick curtains on all the sides, or only on the left and right side of the bed.
