Affordable Poster Beds

Poster beds are a great way to get a formal look in your space. They naturally exude an aura of sophistication and refinement. When it comes to poster beds, we know that buyers are difficult to please. A four poster bed is a wonderful way to create a focal point in any room. Four poster beds might have originally came into existence for utilitarian reasons, but nowadays they evoke wealthy and luxury. In medieval times, these beds played an important role in keeping you warm.Read More

Choosing a Four Poster Bed

Choosing the right four poster bed can be easy when you know what to look for. Here are some key points:


Most poster beds are available in two design styles: modern and traditional. It's always best to stick to the scheme that best fits your existing furniture. Most four poster bed designs are classics, featuring carved details, and turned wood spindles. However, modern design has caught on to the allure of the four poster bed. It is now common to find these stately beds with a clean, square design in a deep shade of espresso.

An all wood poster bed is always popular. Choose a finish like cherry or mahogany for the look of an antique. Painted finishes, like black and white, are also wonderful choices especially when paired with a striking turned wood spindle design. Metal 4 poster beds tend to show off ornate detail. A scroll design in wrought iron will add a romantic feel to any bedroom.

Bed Size

Most four poster beds are available in queen and king size. However, some styles for twin four poster beds have been designed specifically for a kids bedroom.


Always take into consideration the available space in your bedroom. Be sure to measure the ceiling height along with the room dimensions to allow for enough room for the bed and the rest of the furniture.


Budget is always a deciding factor for any furniture purchase. Luckily, Cymax carries four poster beds that are both cheap and elegant.

If a four poster bed doesn't offer you the drama you crave, a canopy bed frame is a great alternative. Though very similar in style, a canopy bed features a top structure that links the four post together. Canopy bed are also frequently draped in fabric or curtains.
