The idea of kids canopy beds began during the medieval era when castle bedrooms were big, drafty, and open to any pest that may have wanted to enter it. During the cold months of the year, heavy curtains were hung around all the beds in order to repel the cold air and keep in whatever little warmth was available. When it became warm, the heavier curtains were switched over to lightweight ones which served to protect the sleepers from unwanted pests.
In later times, the idea caught on with wealthy people but this had nothing to do with the weather or keeping out pests. They liked sleeping under canopies simply because it was a status symbol of sorts. Even though these people now had central heating and air conditioning, they just thought it was classy to have a canopy bed.
Kids canopy beds became the dream of many little girls when they were picking out their favorite things to go in their bedrooms. Their beds could be made from any type of material as long as they had the canopy they wanted overhead. They range in style from the simple to the elaborate, as well as in pricing which can begin at $100 and go up to $10,000.
These canopies can cover any type of bed made from whatever material you choose. Usually, you can find a canopy that matches the color and dcor of any bedroom so it will blend right in. Depending on just what kind of canopy you want, you should know that the styles are available in the very simple to the breathtakingly elaborate. However, they come with price tags to match ranging from $100 to $10,000.
If you are in need of choices for kids canopy beds, you can do some online research and then head out to your local furniture store. In addition, if you have some sewing skills it is entirely possible to design and create your child’s very own customized canopy. It really is not as hard as you may imagine and will save you a bundle in cost.
