Headboards

Headboards, with a long history, are now vital bedroom furniture, serving both practical and decorative purposes. From ancient Egyptian times to modern-day bedrooms, headboards have evolved to provide comfort, insulation, and aesthetic appeal. A beautiful headboard can kickstart a new bedroom style or freshen up your current one without breaking the bank. Our diverse selection offers numerous colours, sizes, and materials. Choose a classic upholstered buttoned design or try our tall hotel-style options. We also provide various heights, giving you the flexibility to make a bold statement with a tall headboard or opt for a shorter one for a more subtle appearance. This allows you to personalise your bed's design according to your preferences.

Questions & Answers

  • What is the purpose of a headboard?

    They not only offer aesthetically pleasing looks in the bedroom, they give support to your bed and protect walls against abrasion.

  • Can you put a headboard on any bed frame?

    Providing they are size compatible, yes, one can be attached to any bed frame.

  • How are headboards attached?

    They can be attached to the wall, the bed itself or be free-standing behind the bed.

  • What is a strutted headboard?

    Strutted headboards have two reinforced wooden struts that attach the headboard securely to a divan base. When the bed is pushed against a wall the attachment is invisible. The struts allow the headboard to be height adjusted meaning you can ensure your headboard is not obstructed by your mattress. This type of product is ideally suited to those with access issues as their design allows them to be taken apart and moved piece by piece.

  • What is a free-standing headboard?

    Free standing/floor standing headboards are separate units that stand directly on the floor behind the bed frame. Although they are supported by their own weight, they can be attached to the bed base for those looking for enhanced stability. Offering an aesthetic fixing point within a bedroom’s decor, this type of product is ideal for those who like to sit up in bed and lean against their headboard as they offer greater support and sturdiness.

  • Is it better to have a headboard or not?

    There is no requirement to have a headboard however, they can supply extra support, elevate your bedroom décor, and prevent wall damage. In homes with poor insulation, headboards can alleviate damp and coldness permeating through the walls. They can also prevent your pillows from falling on the floor throughout the night!

  • How do I know what size headboard to buy?

    The size should match the size of your bed. However, there are some other things to think about… By simply changing a headboard, you can have a dramatic impact on the whole room without the need for an entire makeover. Headboards are available in all shapes, sizes, and colours, therefore, selecting the correct one is no mean feat. Luckily, our bed experts are on hand to offer advice about your headboard purchase. Things to consider include the size of your room. Soaring ceilings allow for tall showstoppers while low ceilings call for less statement pieces to prevent the headboard dominating the room.

  • Does a headboard have to be against a wall?

    Yes, ideally against a solid wall.

  • Should a headboard sit on top of a mattress?

    No. Most sit 3-4” below the mattress to provide support for your back when sitting up in bed.

  • Should there be a gap between my bed and the headboard?

    Your headboard should be the same size as your bedframe and therefore sit flush. If you find yourself having gaps between the bedframe, headboard and mattress, your headboard might not be the best fit.

  • How do I care for my headboard?

    Like with all products, the better care you take of it, the longer it should last.
