If chosen correctly, your headboard can be functional and highly aesthetic addition to your bedroom. The bedroom is a place for relaxing and unwinding. Because it is such an important aspect of your life, your bedroom should make you feel as comfortable as possible. While the overall décor is important in conveying your personal style, you should pay special attention to your bed. The bed is often the focal point of a well decorated bedroom. For many people, the headboard is the first element that visitors see. What do you want your choice in headboard to say about you? From elegant and graceful to modern and cutting edge, there are many options to consider. Consider the following ideas in headboards.
A popular motif in many bedrooms, the upholstered headboard can be a unique way to showcase your bed. Many of these feature tufting, ruffles and pleats. Upholstered headboards come in many different fabric types:
- Faux Leather
An upholstered headboard is a classic way to add form to your interior design and can serve as a convenient seat backing for when you choose to read or watch TV.
Wooden headboards are practical and stylish. Wood is a versatile and favored material due to its beauty and practicality. The possibilities of additions to wooden headboards range from extendable shelves to built-in nightstands. The type of wood that is used should be taken in considerations. Darker wood such as Oak and Walnut enhance the feeling of a stately English manor or cabin whereas lighter wood like Maple can be used for rooms with more neutral tones. Wooden headboards come in many styles and variations such as:
- Double Rail
- Molded Resin
- Hand Carved Elements
When done correctly, a metal headboard can make a bold statement. Sturdy and made from a variety of materials, metal headboards gives your bed a solid, yet soft touch. Choosing what type of metal suits you should be a matter of taste. Many everyday items influence metal headboard design, cathedral doors, wrought iron gates and scrolling vines with a floral inspiration. Unless made from a sturdy material such as wrought iron or tubular brass, some metal headboards have a tendency to bend with excess use. Metal headboards share the same style of design that most wood headboards feature.
