Buying Tips for Bedroom Headboards

Give your bedroom's style a boost with a gorgeous headboard. Read these buying tips to help you pick the perfect headboard, plus, get inspired by some of our favorite designs.

Wake up even the sleepiest bedroom with a luxurious upholstered headboard. You won't have the same wear-and-tear concerns as with a sofa or chair, but it's wise to approach buying an upholstered headboard as you would any piece of furniture. High quality materials, comfort, and long-lasting style are key. Consider these tips when choosing the focal point of your at-home getaway.

Why Your Bedroom Needs a Headboard

Headboard Buying Tips

Shop Smart: Look for a hardwood frame with high density foam padding, wear-resistant fabric, and a covered back. A custom-fit slipcover is a bonus for easy style swaps and cleaning.

Measure Up: Height is important. A tall mattress and stacks of pillows will obscure a too-short headboard. For lean-back comfort, measure your height when sitting in bed.

Install With Ease: Most headboards come with hardware that attaches to standard bed frames. You can wallmount one using D-ring hooks or interlocking hanging brackets.

Keep Clean: Use a pillow to keep hair oils off upholstery. Clean regularly with a vacuum brush; a lint brush works for touch-ups. For stains, spot-clean or call an upholstery cleaner.

Headboard Design Inspiration

Tall & Simple Headboard: This simple design reaches lofty heights and partially obscures the view from the window behind it, creating privacy and providing a comfortable backrest for sitting in bed.

Colorful Choices: Headboards not only crown a bed, but also can introduce a welcome burst of color. This green-and-white upholstered headboard pops against the saturated taupe walls and crisp white bedding.

Contrasting Pattern: Besides color, headboards also can introduce patterns to a bedroom. Here, a large gingham pattern creates a geometric focal point in a sea of floral patterns. Scale is important when mixing patterns. A small gingham print would have been lost against the bold floral wallpaper and the wall would have been too busy. But with this headboard┬┐s oversized design, the pattern mixes in well.

Shapely Design: Add a romantic curve to your bedroom with a sculptural headboard. The curved design of this tufted headboard acclimates well in a space filled with luxurious soft fabrics and elegant patterns. A curved headboard like this one also can also help draw the eye up and make the ceiling feel higher.
