Whether your daughter has just recently graduated from her toddler bed or is a preteen who is looking to add a little more oomph to her sleep space, a canopy bed may just be in the cards. Canopy beds are a great way to add a little magic to a child's bedroom. Young ones will enjoy dozing off pretending that they're living in a dreamy, magical land—canopy beds just have that mystical quality about them.
Fortunately, converting a regular bed into a canopy setup is quite easy. There are also a number of directions one can go with regard to color scheme and fabric choice. Whether your daughter craves a bedroom that's ultra glam or is all about embracing vibrant hues, the below spaces are a great place to look to get ideas for your own design scheme.
