Canopy Beds for Girls

A beautiful net canopy on a little girl's bed is the perfect way to make her feel like an absolute princess. They come in all sorts of colors and styles and there's one to fit any budget. Let's look at the basics of what you need.

Canopy Bed Frames

If you want to go for a four poster kind of canopy (which look really amazing, so I recommend it!) you'll need a bed with a built in canopy frame to hang it upon. There's loads of styles to choose from, and a few of them even come with their own canopy cover, but my favorite has to be this gorgeous Cinderella's carriage style bed on the right.

You can also get full canopy beds for toddlers at a really good price, such as this one here.

Canopy Day Bed Frames

Another great option for those of you looking for a good canopy bed frame is one of these canopy day beds. They're a dream land palace at night, and a comfortable sofa and seating area in the day!

Not only can these save you money on seating, which is really convenient, but they look absolutely wonderful too: really delicate and feminine. I recommend setting them up with some frilly or lacy floral bedding with cute pastel colors like the one in the picture for a truly fairy tale atmosphere.

Four-Poster Canopies

Once you have your bed frame you'll need the finishing touch, the canopy itself. There's lots of different styles available, such as curtain like canopies that can be closed to defend against mosquitoes, to simplistic but beautiful net throws to decorate an elaborate bed frame.

They also come in pretty much every color you can imagine, though pink and white are by far the most common and popular. Pick the one that suits your little girl's bed best and you are good to go!

Stand-Alone Canopies

If you don't want to fork out for a brand new bed and all the trimmings, you can always get a stand alone hanging canopy for your daughter's bedroom. These hang from the ceiling and have the advantage of fitting many bed sizes at once. There are two main styles, circular canopies like the one above, and square canopies that imitate the ones you would get for a four post bed frame.

Happy Decorating!

I hope you've found some sweet ideas for setting up your own beautiful princess style bed set for the little princess in your life. If you liked this post, don't forget to check out the rest of my blog for all the best bedroom themes, bedding and decor accessory ideas on the net!
