Bed Boxes Making A Comeback

Makes sense to me, though mine would need a pet door.

People are Starting to Sleep in Medieval “Box Beds” Again

I'm considering options for the bedroom section of my basement apartment at my sisters. Was considering putting up walls but the way the stairs are laid out that could be restrictive. A bed box would provide privacy and keep me warm. (The basement runs a bit cool)

A traditional way to enclose a bed was via heavy drapes on all four sides and possibly over the top. A canopy bed in other words. Drapes would allow pet access.

You can buy ceiling-mounted drapery hardware so you don't have to have a framework. The key, always, with drapery hardware is making sure it's well anchored to support all the weight.
