Headboards Buying Guide

When you aren't ready to make the investment in a complete bed frame set, a headboard is a good option. It can also solve small-space issues, because headboards don't take up much room and can include storage.

Types of Headboards

Types of Headboards

A headboard is the tall decorative furniture piece attached to the head of a bed. Bolts secure it to the metal bed frame that the mattress and box spring sit on. Your headboard can be very low and sleek or tall and impressive, depending on what style you like. Here is a breakdown of the various types.

Style

Headboards are available in any style, from traditional to modern and everything in between. There are rustic headboards made from barn boards, industrial headboards fitted from pipes, even romantic headboards that feature loving sayings. You'll find many styles as you shop, and you can even alter the headboard to suit your personal tastes by adding a coat of paint, some stencil details, or a fabric cover.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here are some additional features that you might like to have. With extra features come extra costs, but they may be worth it.

Size

Headboards come in widths to match standard mattress sizes—twin, full, queen, and king—as well as specialty sizes. Headboards vary in height, from extending just a few inches above the mattress top to nearly touching the ceiling. Shorter headboards may not provide enough support if you like to sit up and read in bed. Taller headboards will be weightier, so they may have to be anchored to the wall for stability.

Comfort

The height and material contribute to the comfort of a headboard when you are leaning against it. A taller headboard might be more supportive to your head and shoulders, but you can recline at more of an angle against a shorter headboard. Upholstered headboards offer the most cushion. Some headboards feature an angled surface that is ergonomically pleasing.
