How to Choose the Perfect Headboard

When it comes to furnishing a bedroom, there are lots of things that you will need to do from buying a bed through to choosing your bedside tables but one of the most important things to focus on is the headboard. A headboard acts as a frame for a bed and it is often more noticeable than the bed itself, as it stands high above the back of the bed. How high it comes up is a personal choice and will partly depend on the style of the bedroom itself, as well as the type of bed that you choose.

 King size beds are often a popular choice, as they give you more room than a double but are not as intrusive as a super king or an emperor size bed. Good quality upholstered king size headboards can be purchased online and they come in a range of designs, shapes, colours and sizes to suit an array of bedrooms.

Online Shopping

Shopping online for a new headboard is often the best way to get hold of a good quality headboard for an affordable price.

However, there are a whole host of other reasons why online shopping is a great way to get hold of a new headboard including the following;

  • There is a wide choice of headboards varying in sizes, materials and designs making it easy to find exactly what you want
  • The internet is a convenient way to shop, as you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home
  • Delivery can be organised, so you don’t have to work out how you will transport it
  • You can shop in the middle of the day or night for your headboard, without being constrained to shop opening hours

It iseasy to read the product descriptions and look at the accompanying photographs to find the headboard that you want and you won’t feel any pressure from pushy salespeople like you can when you go shopping in a store.

Design & Style

One of the most important things to think about is the design and the style, as this will have an impact on the entire bedroom. From regal cuts with thick borders through to straight lines with buttons; there are a wide range of styles to choose between making it easy to find a design that will work well with your bed and the entire room.

The Fabric

Another factor that will affect the look and feel of a headboard is what material it is made from and below are a few of the most popular:

  • Chenile
  • Shiny and matte fabrics
  • Different weaves
  • Crushed or shimmery velvet
  • Leather or suede (faux and real)
  • Linen, cotton, tweed or wool

Sizes& Colours
