5 Reasons Why A Poster Bed Is Appropriate For Modern Living

A lot of us have fond memories of our ancestral or grandparents’ house where a major part of our time was spent playing pretend in a gauzy, lacy and sometimes netted poster bed which formed the grand focus. The word itself brings back not only memories but also makes you wonder why not the same canopy beds have in our own homes. But the thought of the overall look and décor crosses the mind and the whole idea is discarded. Of course, money is another matter.

Bedrooms are the hardest when it comes to selecting the furniture, setting the theme and making the whole ambience perfect for our solo moments. Not only does the bedroom reflect out personality but it is also a safe haven for us. Contrary to popular belief, it is the bedroom that is most luxuriously decorated and nothing speaks luxury, safety and comfort better than a poster bed.

Consumer Alert: 5 Reasons Why A Poster Bed Is Appropriate For Modern Living

Reasons for buying a poster bed

When we buy a sofa online we need to keep in mind that it fits the overall décor of the living room and in case of the sofa being the focal point then we need to plan the whole look around it. But, with the choice of sofa we get, deciding on one is not a difficult task. The same rule is partially applicable for beds, especially poster beds because budget plays a major role. Still, investing in one is a good idea and here are the reasons why:

> Aesthetics: There are no second thoughts about the enhanced aesthetics of your room with a poster bed. And it does not mean you have to go antique all the way. Poster beds nowadays are made keeping the modern lifestyle in mind yet retaining that old world charm.

> Privacy: If you happen to live in a family where people share each other’s things and door closing isn’t much of an option then the privacy of the poster bed will be your saving grace. Draw the curtains and keep out the world while you stay a bit more in dreamland.

> Temperature regulation: The option to add curtains is a great plus for chilly winters. Draping the bed with thick material curtains to keep the cold outside. Similarly, during summers, you can opt for light cotton curtains to keep the heat out.

> Protection: a great way to control mosquito torment is the mosquito net. Not only are you safe from potentially harmful fumes of mosquito coils but the nets provides adequate ventilation to provide you with a good night’s sleep.

> Support: the poster bed is sturdier than their normal alternatives thanks to the additional pillar support and framework.

While many think that poster beds will not work in the modern home, especially if you have a space crunch then rest assured for the poster beds are made to fit the modern lifestyle. There are beds with storage options and single or queen sized beds that will address the space issue. So, keep the worry away and invest in a good poster bed to make your bedroom cozier.
