Why we love it!

We love using upholstered headboards in our client’s projects because they added a layer of comfort and sophistication to bedroom designs. If you’re a lover of color – choose a classic style that is upholstered with bold fabric to really make the bed pop! You can easily make a statement with upholstered headboards in this way or use them to polish off a design.

How to use it. 

Upholstered headboards are great to use for master bedrooms, guest rooms, and any other bedroom you have. They provide comfort and warmth to the rooms. 

Use a bold and bright fabric to inject color into your bedroom design and make a feature of the headboard. Alternatively, use a neutral fabric to add warmth and comfort to the room.

In terms of style for the upholstered headboard, there is a huge range available. Including simple and clean line headboards that are perfect for modern interiors. Choose a rounded, arched, tufted, or button-style headboard for more classic bedroom styles.

What to watch for.

There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using an upholstered headboard in your bedroom.

If you are sensitive to dust or other allergies, you will need to consider an upholstered headboard carefully. Dust can build up on headboards and is regularly forgotten about when cleaning… Always make sure to use a handheld vacuum cleaner (or follow the headboard manufacturer’s cleaning guidance) to ensure the build-up of dust is kept to a minimum.

Another thing to watch out for is the sizing of the headboard. Although headboards are listed for the bed size, it’s important to check where the pre-made headboard holes are on your bed base and double-check the spacing on the headboard to ensure it will fit appropriately.

Ways to make this trend last in your home

Adding an upholstered headboard to your bedroom can be a timeless addition to the room and last for many years.

First, explore the styles available online and determine which sort of style best relates to your bedroom’s overall design and your interior style. Is your bedroom modern? Look for an upholstered headboard that has clean lines and is relatively simple in design. Or perhaps you have a more classic interior? Look at curved, arched designs or those with tufted or buttoned detailing.

For the fabric selection, this will again be driven by the overall style of your interior… If bright colors are your thing – go for it! And choose a color you have other decorative accessories in so it will tie in with everything else you have. However, if you’re looking for the headboard to last you many years (and they can definitely last 8+ years) then choose a more neutral fabric so it can work with different wall colors. You can bring in other colors by using colorful decorative pillows, throw blankets, and wall art which are more cost-effective regular changes.

Always order fabric samples before ordering an upholstered headboard. This will enable you to check the coloring of the fabric against other finishes in the room and will give you reassurance in what you’re purchasing.
