Editor's Notes

September 13, 2020:

When it comes to canopy beds, there are a lot of variables to consider. While the primary concern may be the look of the frame, you also have to take into account its strength, ease of assembly, durability, support, and cost.

If you're decorating a space for a toddler or young child, there is a diverse array of options available. The DHP Metal Carriage, for instance, can help cultivate a fairytale atmosphere in a little one's room. While the South Shore Sweedi may not be as durable, its simple design and quality materials allow for easy refinishing and enhancements. The Zinus Kenn with Desk is a practical solution, combining two pieces of furniture in one for your student.

If you're cultivating a more lavish aesthetic, you'll probably be looking for a larger piece with rich details. However, whether you're navigating the size of the headboard on the Meridian Furniture Porter or the heft of the posts on the Furniture of America Eckel, paying for professional assembly or at least having an extra pair of hands helping you is strongly recommended.

Fans of more traditional styling may debate back and forth between a wooden frame like the Home Styles Bedford or a metal one like the Hillsdale Dover. In such cases, the metal selections tend to be less imposing, making them better suited for smaller spaces.

Though we typically think of metal as rugged, metal bed frames often raise concerns about stability and noise. Pieces from the Zinus brand, however, stand out for their durable construction and clean lines, making them worthy investments.

It's important to note that while many of the items on this list come with slats, there are several which require the purchase of a separate box spring or foundation. In other cases, a box spring may not be required but can still be used to add height to your configuration.
