How to choose the headboard of the bed

Headboards create a focal point in any bedroom, so it’s important to make the right choice. There are many things to consider before buying – for example, if you value comfort over everything, or if you’re more intent on making your bed make a statement.

If you read or watch TV in bed, you’ll be better off with a padded or custom upholstered headboards. Since you will lean on it, a dark color or print will hide any markings. On the other hand, wooden or rattan headboards create an elegant impact but do not offer the comfort of upholstered headboards.

Headboards: what are the design choices?

Upholstered headboards are ideal for comfort and can make a striking statement when upholstered in bold patterned fabric. Alternatively, blush pink and gray are the neutrals of the moment if you’re looking for a more restful feeling. Buttoned designs are back in fashion and now they come in curvier and chubby styles that you won’t resist sinking into.

Leather headboards are perfect for giving a sleek, modern look to contemporary bedrooms, but remember that leather can be cold so you may need a few extra pillows.

Wooden headboards are ideal for country-style bedrooms and traditional schemes. Or choose an intricate carved design for a more oriental look.

Metal headboards will give a room a chic, urban feel, which is great for minimal style bedrooms.

If you are buying a bed from scratch, you may want to consider choosing a bed with a headboard already attached. You’ll be guaranteed that everything fits together and you won’t have the expense of purchasing a separate headboard. However, your choice will be more limited and you will have to change the bed and board if you want a new look.

If you are choosing a headboard for a sofa bed, you will be the best choice and it will be easy to change if you feel like a new look. Remember to check your bed accessories before buying, as not all headboards fit all beds. The best thing to do is to measure the screw holes to make sure you get a good fit when shopping.

What size do i need?

Consider the height of the people who will use the headboard. Some headboards won’t be tall enough for tall people, and kids won’t need a headboard as tall as an adult’s.

Choosing a wider headboard than the bed is recommended, as when adding a duvet it might otherwise appear to appear “short”. Ideally, it should be two inches wider than your matttress on either size, although the headers can be anywhere between zero and four inches.
