Designer Advice:

If you pair this with black furniture or pops of colour, you’ll find this four poster bed will really stand out. It will need to be polished as it is created from mahogany. The ideal way to preserve it is to use beeswax. Secondly, due to the nature of its small thin legs, it would work well on wooden floors to avoid carpet damage or tearing.

Designer Advice:

Cream and velvet may sound like a daunting combination, but there are some simple tips to maintain optimum aesthetic. Firstly we would recommend a simple soapy cloth to wipe off any marks. Letting it air dry is best. Also, velvet does not easily snag, so it’s an ideal luxurious and plush material for the bedroom.

Buying Guide

A black four poster bed won’t just fill a large bedroom that’s hard to furnish, but it will also decorate the space in luxury and elegance. It's the bed that’s the most stylish in comparison to all other options available. Curtains can be used with the bed to make it romantic and magical. If your style is modern, then a unit with sleek lines will be perfect for your home interiors.

If you want your bed to have a feminine touch, choose the bed that can let you add layers of fabric for hanging or draping. The sturdier the posts, the better as they will let you drape heavier, patterned fabrics to create elegance and grandeur, perfect for traditional-style or formal rooms. For a tropical feel, choose a black four poster bed that will let you drape white material over it.

Black four poster beds can be topless and they're great in creating visual height within bedrooms. Corner posts also have different styles. There are those that are stately and massive like columns while others look like tapering poles. An asymmetrical frame features taller posts on the bed’s topmost part with the posts by the foot of the bed a lot shorter.

A black four poster bed can have a contemporary style to offer a clean look. Most units with modern styling have top rails uncovered. Their sharp, angular lines imply a strong, imposing, and masculine feel. Such type of bed frame can emphasize a high, vaulted ceiling while giving the bedroom a spacious, airy feel.

It's common for a four poster bed to come in either platform or box spring type. The springs are covered with fabric, and the mattress is placed on top of it. The advantage of this type of bed is that it gives additional support for the mattress, which might, therefore, last longer. Also, it will raise the height of the bed. On the other hand, there'll be very little storage space available under a box spring bed, and it's typically more expensive than the platform bed.

The platform bed has a solid platform to place the mattress on. These bed are typically more economical compared to the box spring and they will have more storage room underneath. On the downside, this type of bed won't be offering support for the mattress.
