Cheap Canopy Beds

If there’s one piece of furniture I dreamed of as a child, it’s a canopy bed. With their enormous four posters, these beds were the ultimate sign of luxury! I imagined draping sheer white curtains over each side, to give the bed a romantic feel, though the style today seems to be bare-bones when it comes to canopy beds.

Fortunately, you can buy a canopy bed for a really reasonable price. I’ve rounded up twelve of my favorites below, each of which costs less than $1000 (for at least a full-size bed!)


Style a Canopy Bed on a Budget

Decorating on a budget is definitely possible. Here are some tips for decorating canopy beds on a budget:

  • Use affordable fabric like cotton, linen, or polyester blends instead of more expensive materials like silk or velvet. Look for sales or discount stores.
  • Skip the full drapes on all sides and just do a simple canopy over the top of the bed. This uses less fabric overall.
  • Choose a basic canopy bed frame made of wood or metal that doesn’t have too many elaborate details that drive up the price.
  • DIY your own canopy by getting creative with pipe, conduits, or PVC that has been spray painted. Hang lightweight fabrics over them.
  • Repurpose other items like old shutters, doors, or window frames as the canopy structure instead of buying a bed frame.
  • Use lightings like fairy lights or paper lanterns to create ambiance instead of expensive formal chandeliers.
  • Make your own canopy fabric panels with budget textiles, ribbon trim, and embroidery. Or opt for ready-made curtain panels.
  • Fill the canopy space with affordable macrame, wreaths, or paper flower garlands rather than pricier floral arrangements.
  • Choose inexpensive bedding and throw pillows in natural fibers like cotton or linen instead of silk, satin, or velvet. Mix in cozy textures like knits or crochet.

With a little creativity, you can design a gorgeous canopy bed area on a budget that still feels special. The key is working with uncomplicated frames and fabrics, and then dressing it up with thoughtful DIY or budget decor pieces.
