Laverne Mallet Bed Frames January 11, 2018 23:28:40
The traditional four-poster bed as seen in Regency England has become modernized with canopy bed frames. This style once seen only in museums has been given a new lease of life by modern furniture makers who have seen their potential as an elegant yet sturdy bed frame. The modern canopy frames still have the four posts in each corner. These can extend to four feet from the ground and have supports from which curtains will hang. The posts are no longer ornate but have a simpler more utilitarian design that is easy to dismantle and clean.
Most bed frames are made of either wood or metal, and either one is suitable. Generally, a wooden frame will look best with a wood headboard, and a metal frame with metal, but this depends on the style of headboard and how much of the frame will be seen. No matter what material you choose, you will need to make sure that headboard, and footboard if applicable, will properly connect to the frame. Most headboards can adjust to fit the frames that vary slightly in height, but this will depend on what the headboard is made out of and what size it is. By measuring in advance, you can be confident that your new bed frame and the existing headboard will work together.
Choice of modern frames usually depends on the type of décor, size of bedroom, cost and such. Metal frames are the simplest and come with low wheels. They usually have them in king, queen or twin bed sizes. The frame can be raised at the edges to prevent the mattress from moving out of position. Metal frames can give an old world look especially if they are made from wrought iron. Aluminium is more lightweight and modern frames are likely to be made from aluminium rather than metal.
The California King Size Bed frames also known as western king is 72"W x 84"L and meant for those who are above normal height. There are mattresses made to specifically suit this size of bed-frame along with bed sheets and comforters. Finally, the split King Size Bed-frames is very versatile for it can be split to make separate beds. It is perfect for a guest room or in a master bedroom where couples want separate beds. To suit this frame of bed, there are extra long twin mattresses available. Customers must measure their bedroom space to ensure they have the required space to accommodate King Size Bed-frames.
Canopy frames have always represented romance and even to this day, they enjoy this reputation. The canopy or curtain is what sets it apart from other modern frames. Canopies made from silk, velvet, calico, tapestry or even sheer materials are used to give a romantic atmosphere to the bedroom of newlyweds. The modern addition is the panel which never existed in olden days. These can be of different lengths and the canopy material, color and print can be varied depending on the theme than one wants to convey.
Havent we all seen lots of pictures of honeymoon suites with white lace curtains and canopy beds with ivory silken bedspread strewn with rose petals? Now this theme can even be extended to a home. Young couples need not worry if canopy bed frames seem way beyond their budget. They can even convert a simple platform bed into a canopy bed with four poles attached to the four corners of the bed frame. Attach curtain rods to the frames and you can hang curtains to get a canopy bed effect. Apart from a romantic theme, canopy ones are also lovely for the rooms of young girls. Done in soft pastel shades with delicate designs, canopy frames bring a cool, soft, look to a young girls room.
