poster beds and sleigh beds in Van Nuys

If you are looking for something different from your regular metal bed frame or outdated futon, then it may be time to consider what poster beds and sleigh beds in Van Nuys have to offer.  Poster beds and sleigh beds work well in larger spaces that need bigger pieces in them in order to look proportionate.  While a standard framed bed works well in a small space with limited resources, elegant poster beds and sleigh beds can be just the ticket in a bigger space.  If you’ve got tall ceilings, a large space and are looking for a traditional piece of furniture to add to your home, then consider the value of adding one of these beautiful types of beds to your home.

Four poster beds have been around for hundreds of years and are one of the most common types of bed frames purchased today.   One of the best features of poster beds is that they can be as ornate and elaborate or as simple as you want.  Poster beds are designed to be similar to the standard canopy bed design, but do not have beams that go across the top.  Instead, these styles of bed frames have four posts that extend up from the bottom of the frame.  Many styles also include a decorative headboard and matching footboard to complete the look.  Most four poster beds are made from deep, rich types of wood or wood veneer products, and include side rails and decorative feet.

Sleigh beds have been popular since they were introduced in the early 1800’s in France.  Now incredibly popular in the US, and especially in the southern part of the country, sleigh beds have a tall, headboard that curves out and a shorter footboard at the end that depicts the shape of a traditional horse-drawn sleigh.  Both attractive and functional, sleigh beds are usually made from high quality wood and can include either very ornately carved details or more modern, smooth designs.

Before choosing a four poster bed or a sleigh bed, be sure to measure your room carefully!  Since not rooms can accommodate these larger types of beds, it’s a good idea to measure your space accordingly.
