Why you should consider having a Headboard

A headboard is a decorative feature for a bedroom, but it is also more than that, and we explain why.




Installing a headboard at the top of a bed offers you an opportunity to make any bed a feature in the room, and since the bedroom is all about the bed, it's an easy way to make any bed a stand-out feature if you choose the perfect headboard. Practical and beautiful, you can use a headboard to add personality and character to a bedroom that is missing that 'something'.

Having a headboard or not is a matter or personal choice and you can choose a wooden headboard, make a custom DIY headboard, or consider an upholstered plain or tufted headboard. The right headboard can be an item that creates a cozy atmosphere or just adds that extra special touch.







More than Decorative

While a headboard is a decorative feature, it is also a finishing touch for a bedroom, an element that lets you layer on texture and interest in a way no other furniture in the bedroom can. Some people prefer to do without a headboard, whether it's a matter of personal choice or lack of knowledge, a headboard isn't just decorative. A luxurious padded headboard provides you with a place to sit back and relax if you like to read or watch TV in bed, plus a comfortable place to relax if you need to do some urgent work before bedtime, but more than that a headboard also protects the wall behind a bed.








Add more Texture to a Bedroom

You can use an upholstered headboard to introduce another layer of texture into the bedroom, as well as it being a sound insulator. Today's headboards come in a variety of styles and materials, but personally, I love the luxury of a padded headboard behind my back, but you can choose a headboard material that complements the style of the room and impact the look and feel of a bedroom.



If you don't currently have a headboard, how many times have you woken up to find that your pillow has slipped down the head of the bed? Having a headboard helps to make your bed more comfortable and keep pillows where they belong.
