The role of modern canopies is to add intimacy to the bedroom that is different than old fashioned drapes. Canopies being plain and simple, become panel like. This works well on modern wooden and metal four poster beds and even Swedish style white painted four-posters. Both of these have been designed to take canopies.

If you don’t have a suitable bed to be covered in canopies, you could instead, suspend a batten or length of bamboo from your ceiling. The length of the batten should be the same as the width of your bed and position width wise above the centre of the bed. Hang a canopy over that. Hand one end of the canopy to the top of your headboard and the other end of the canopy to the foot of your bed or foot board.

Another option is to fasten one end of the canopy to the wall above your headboard and then to hang the other end over the foot board. This will work best with a tall foot board.

You should make your canopy from a single panel for a more modern look. Then you can add your own trimmings to the panel to suit the decor of your room. You can edge the canopy with beading, braiding or other upholstery fringing that you desire.
