The use of bed canopies can be dated back to centuries ago. It is normally used as protection from the outside world while sleeping. Nowadays, not only do people use it for protection, but also it is often used for the look of luxury in the bedroom. By choosing the proper material for your canopy bed, you can add a romantic atmosphere and make your own bedroom a favorite retreat. Currently, sheer fabrics like chiffon and organza work well for fabric canopies.
Hanging a bed canopy is not as easy as it sounds. A poster bed is the easiest way to drape fabrics and it does not require installation, but you need to take the shapes and sizes of canopy into consideration. If you do not have a poster bed, you can still hang fabrics directly from your ceiling by using metal hooks, curtain rods or any other fastening tool that works for your room or ceiling. Consider using the walls around your bed as well if the ceiling is not an option and you are set on having a romantic draped canopy adorn your bed.
