What are Metal Headboards?

Metal headboards are exactly how they sound! Either available as freestanding and wall-mounted headboards or as a full bed frame, they are made from metal and finished in a variety of finishes to suit any interior style.

Why We Love Metal Headboards!

We love using metal headboards in design projects because there is always something available to suit the interior! Whether it’s a modern style or a more traditional silhouette needed, rest assured that a metal headboard or bed frame will be obtainable. These headboards and bed frames are also great for use in lower-budget projects.

How to use metal headboards.

There are a few ways you can use metal headboards in your home. Here are some of them!

Metal headboards can be used in any of the bedroom spaces found in a home. The master or primary bedroom, kids bedrooms or guest rooms – metal headboards might be just the right material and style for your new space.

You can use metal headboards to refresh the wall at the back of a bed, or go full steam ahead with a new metal framed bed!

What to watch for.

While metal headboards are a great decorative touch to bedrooms, there are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using them in your home.

Over time the metal joints may become loose or they start to rub and can cause squeaking. This isn’t ideal for a good night’s sleep for the person sleeping, or others nearby in the house. You should tighten any joints as much as possible during assembly.

In addition to the squeaking, some people may not like metal headboards at all because of the lack of comfort. As they are exposed metal, this isn’t the most comfortable material to be sat upright against.

You should consider the points above carefully so an informed decision can be made. Always read product reviews if you buy online!

Ways to make metal headboards last in your home

Adding a metal headboard to your bedroom can last many years if chosen correctly. They are great for adding texture and different silhouettes to the back of the bed itself.

Firstly, it is important to choose a metal headboard that’s design and finish are timeless. By getting these basics correct, the headboard will last many years! To choose the right finish for your space, examine what other metal finishes are used in the room. You may want to stick with this metal or choose a contrasting one for visual interest! The style of the headboard will be determined greatly by the overall design of the room and what style you’re trying to achieve.

Once you have some shortlisted ideas and options, you can start your search! Remember to always read through the product reviews and ensure the headboard or metal bed frame is from a reputable company with a long warranty.
