13 White Canopy Beds Trending Right Now

Sharing is caring!

Our white canopy bed was a purchase made 6 years ago, and I love it JUST AS MUCH as the day we bought it. That says a lot for someone who loves to refresh their rooms often!

There is something about a king canopy bed that feels regal. It is your own personal kingdom. I don’t need sheets hanging (to each their own), but it still feels cocoon-like to me. It is an oasis of comfort!

Update: This post was updated in 2023 with fresh links and highlighting only in stock canopy beds.

Reasons You Need a Canopy Bed

The canopy bed is a classic bedroom style. This bed was originally created to conserve warmth and offer privacy behind thick curtains, but now these beds are sought after for their statement.

There’s no denying that investing in a canopy bed adds an air of sophistication and luxury that few other styles of beds can replicate.

Some Key Tips to Remember When Choosing Canopy Beds

When it comes to choosing canopy beds, there are a few key tips to remember for achieving the desired aesthetic in your bedroom. Firstly, consider the height of your ceiling, as the top of the bed should fall short of the ceiling by at least 20cm to keep ideal proportions.

But while a canopy bed is not for everyone, it is also not for every room! These large beds take up a lot of physical and visual space. The room WILL look smaller with a large canopy bed inside it, even if it has a skeletal frame.

If your bedroom is smaller, choose your size wisely. Look for canopy beds with a simple headboard and footboard- nothing bulky or heavy.

You will want to consider light placement. Will your light be in the center of the room and be awkwardly over the bed? Should you move it to be centered over the bed or in front of the bed? We kept the fan centered in our room but went with a ceiling-hugger fan. Think about ceilings (ours are 9ft) and how close they will be to the top portion of your bed.

The most popular choice is a white painted frame which would work well if you’re after a Hamptons-style look. Coastal style is perfect if you’re looking for something laidback and relaxed – achieve this with either a whitewashed or driftwood frame, and you could include some flowing white sheers draped around it too. 

The Right Headboard to Suit Your Bed Frame

When shopping for a headboard to suit your canopy bed frame, there are several choices you’ll need to consider.

  • An upholstered buttoned headboard will provide a more traditional look
  • Introducing rattan can give your bedroom the popular Hamptons or Plantation style.
  • A canopy bed with a partial frame is perfect for low and cathedral ceilings with limited bedroom wall height.
