A headboard is often considered an optional extra for your bed, but there are several very good reasons for opting to have one.
Of course, the most obvious reason is comfort. A headboard allows you to sit up in bed to read, watch TV or eat breakfast, resting your head against something more comfortable than a cold, hard wall. Many people choose a padded headboard covered with soft, warm fabric for this very purpose.
Additionally, a headboard can protect the wall behind your bed from becoming damaged or scuffed. Cushioned headboards can also prevent injury by stopping your head from banging against the wall in your sleep. And, of course, a headboard can frame your bed and make it look more attractive as a piece of furniture. There are so many types to choose from, you can be sure to find a headboard to match your own distinct taste and bedroom décor.
Whether your primary purpose for buying a bed headboard is practical function or cosmetic appearance, or a combination of both in equal measure, we are confident that you’ll find plenty of headboard ideas at Bedznextday.
How to choose a headboard
First, you should decide how often, and for what types of activities you are likely to use your headboard. If you’re the type of person who likes to watch TV and read in bed for long periods, then comfort should be your number one priority, and a fully-padded, upholstered headboard would most likely suit you best.
On the other hand, if your main concern is basic functionality, to prevent head injuries and wall damage, then a wooden headboard should suffice,. If you also have a wooden bed frame, this can really enhance the appearance of the bed too, particularly if you wish to lend your bedroom a country cottage aesthetic.
Alternatively, ornate wrought metal headboards can add a touch of class to a glamorous bedroom if décor is your main concern.
Whether you’re looking for a wooden floor standing single headboard, a metal double bed headboard, or a luxury padded divan bed headboard, you’ll find dozens of designs for the best prices at Bedznextday.
