I’m not going to patronise and explain to you what a headboard is, I’m sure we’re all familiar. Personally, I feel like headboards are an underrated part of interior design. It is, for most, a focal point of a bedroom, and should be made into a feature. Feature headboards can bring the wow-factor to your room, making it look expensive and luxurious. The best thing is you don’t need to break the bank buying a whole new bed!
As with any other piece of furniture, it’s important when choosing your headboard, to choose a colour that will compliment your décor. The same rule also applies if choosing an upholstered headboard, you should choose a fabric that accents the other fabrics in the room, but with so many different types of upholstered headboards on the market, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the fabric and finish.
Leather headboards bring a sleek, modern look to bedrooms, the only thing to bear in mind would be that leather can get cold – so stock up on pillows!
Wooden headboards are perfect for country-style bedrooms and traditional schemes. If you love a masculine touch to your room, wooden headboards are for you.
Metal headboards will give a room a chic, urban feel – which is great for you minimalists out there!
Upholstered headboards are ideal for comfort and can create a striking statement if it’s covered in bold, patterned fabric.
Tufted headboards are back! Choose a tufted headboard with a sleeker, streamlined shape and a modern edge – top tip: they also look amazing in suede or crushed velvet.
