One of the many “perks” of owning an antique iron bed is being able to color coordinate it with any style, period or setting. This bed is from the late 1800’s and is in a traditional “modern” setting.
The advantage of painting an antique iron bed to match its surroundings lies in the versatility it offers for interior design. By choosing a paint color that complements or blends with the room’s decor, you can seamlessly integrate the bed into the space, creating a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing look. This customization allows you to adapt the bed to different design styles and color schemes, ensuring that it harmonizes with its surroundings and becomes a standout piece that enhances the overall ambiance of the room.
Even back when these antique iron beds were being produced, one of the advantages it held over other bed forms of the day was being able to select any color you liked…………. the false thought that all iron beds were painted either white or black, couldn’t be farther from the truth.
More and more designers are using antique iron beds to seamlessly blend the colors of the room . Iron beds have the flexibility of being “repainted”, should the decor and colors change.
