The word canopy is the right term used to describe the area within the posts at the top of a 4 poster bed.
So for example, you could have a canopy made from solid wood – this would be like a flat roof at the top of your bed.
But you can also make canopies from drapes and voiles, if you are looking for something more light and airy.
When thinking about canopies for four poster beds, first decide if the style of bed would suit one, as some classic styles do look better with them. Then consider if you want a canopy bed frame made from wood or drapes / voiles.
Your decision would come down to the look / feel you are trying to create, as well as the size of your bedroom and the amount of natural light you get.
