The Panel Bed is a style of bedroom furniture that has a straight up and down headboard and footboard. In some cases a Panel Bed could also be characterized as a canopy bed, though a strict definition of a Panel Bed usually excludes the characteristic of an overhead canopy. Additionally, many newer sleigh beds with a low profile footboard may be considered a panel bed with it's mixed use of a sleigh headboard and panel footboard. The strict definition of a panel bed includes the following characteristics:
- Headboard / Footboard that are straight up and down
- Usually paneled design in both headboard and footboard
- Often times associated with a more country style
Style and Design of the Panel Bed:

Panel beds are also a good choice if you have a more cramped space in the bedroom; particularly if your bedroom is shorter versus wider. The reason panel beds are usually a better choice with a shorter room is because they typically take up the least space from head to toe compared to sleigh beds or canopy beds.
Panel beds come in a variety of color options; price ranges and styles. As one of the more popular styles of bedroom furniture on the market today, consumers have a wide choice of panel beds to choose from.
