Buying a headboard for your bedroom can really transform the look and ambience in the room, so finding the right one isn’t always as easy as it first appears. If you are buying a headboard for the first time, or changing the style or colour to match a new décor, there are a number of factors to take into consideration.
Wall mounted headboards, floor standing headboards and headboards with struts are the three types of fabric headboards available to buy. Wall mounted headboards are essentially as the descriptions details – attached to the wall to remain in one fixed position. Floor standing headboards reach right down to the floor, while also being attached to the bed itself. And finally, headboards with struts slot into the bed base and move with the bed should it need to be repositioned. If you are looking for something a bit more regal, then a classic metal frame headboard really adds a touch of elegant style to the room.
Finding the right size headboard is really the next step, as you do not want one that is either too big or too small, making the bed space look out of proportion. Always measure the size of your bed so you can compare it against the dimensions of the headboard itself. Depending on the style you choose, opting for something a little larger is fine, although try to avoid purchasing a headboard that is smaller than the width of the bed, for obvious reasons.
Of course, finding the right colour to suit your décor is an important part of the decision making process. Some people use the headboard as the starting point to the room, so if your choice doesn’t immediately match the current bedroom style, you can always buy a new duvet cover or bed valance to change the colour of the bed base. A headboard makes a real statement in the room, so there is no need to restrict yourself given that you can change up the bedroom décor around it at any time. And remember, at the end of the day, the headboard you go for all comes down to personal preference, so there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choice.
With so many styles and fabrics to choose from, you certainly will be spoilt for choice! Whether you are looking for something more traditional, or prefer to remain contemporary, we have something for everyone in our collection. Tufted button and upholstered headboards are particularly popular traditional choices, while a modern look can be achieved through minimal, chic material designs. If you prefer something a little fancier, metal headboards have wonderfully intricate patterns that looking quite stunning.
There are different levels of padding available too, which is also something to take into consideration. If you are likely to sit up in bed before sleeping, the overstuffed style will probably be for you. Or you can also opt for one with less padding, if the headboard is bought purely for aesthetic reasons.
