Why buy an upholstered headboard?
If you have explored our site, you may have noticed that all of our headboards are upholstered. This is one of the latest trends in headboard fashion, and there are several good reasons why you may want to consider this variety over a traditional headboard. In this week’s article, we’re going to explore these reasons.
To get a general idea of what an upholstered headboard is, check out this article from Wisegeek or look through our gallery. Traditionally, headboards were made out of wood or metal. These materials are beautiful, but limited in color and style. Cloth, on the other hand, comes in a huge array of colors and patterns. With an upholstered headboard, you can get the perfect color to match the rest of your room, much like how the perfect sofa can tie a living room together.
One additional bonus of using an upholstered headboard is that they feel more comfortable against the head. If you have ever accidentally banged your head on a bare wooden or metal headboard, it hurts! Laying the wrong way against it during the night can cause a headache in the morning. By wrapping it with padding, these problems are greatly reduced.
Besides color, there are several basic varieties and shapes. The models we offer are:
Classic: A simple rectangle that has been upholstered.
Nailhead: Similar to Classic, but with upholstery nails as a decoration along the border.
Tufted: Very similar to classic couch styles, our tufted variety has buttons along the face of the board.
Wood Border Frame: Our Classic variety, with a wood accent around the edge.
All of these can be come in four different shapes and a wide variety of colors. We invite you to browse our gallery and imagine how an upholstered headboard would look in your home.
