A canopy bed is simply a decorative bed that has mainly four corners and is covered in colorful drapery or richly patterned enclosed doors. Today’s modern canopy beds usually involve curtains hanging from the center of the ceiling and extending to the foot of the bed in order to totally enclose it. Canopy beds can be made as a DIY project or bought to suit the style of your bedroom. In some countries with a tougher warmer tropical climate canopy beds are used to help in keeping away bugs and mosquitoes mainly at nighttime. Here are some of the known parts of a canopy bed:

  • Bed Frame – it typically supports the corners of the mattress, bedhead and foot.
  • Canopy – this is the framed roof-like structure that hangs over the bed.
  • Crown – this is what also supports the canopy to the ceiling.
  • Risers – extensions made to the bed frame to add height to it.
  • Finials – decorative end caps used to hold the canopy frame in place to the bed posts.
