So how do you go about choosing the right upholstered headboard? Well first it’s advisable that you take a step back and evaluate your space as a whole before making any rash decisions. You will need to choose a colour scheme, fabric and design that really complements your bedroom and doesn’t clash with any existing motifs. What may seem like a good idea at the time of inspiration can often turn out to be a home décor disaster if not thought properly through!
Once you have decided upon the colours and styles you are after you can then decide where you want to get your headboard from. Take in mind that the quality and durability will vary greatly depending on where you choose to buy it. Some people choose to make their own headboards, which is a great way to save money and put those creative skills to good use. However if you’re not great with arts and crafts this may not be the best option for you!
You can always find upholstered headboards online at discounted prices, or at your local homeware shop. However if you have a unique vision for your headboard or require high quality materials it is recommended that you go direct to a manufacturer with your requirements, where they can create a headboard tailored to your specifications.
Upholstered headboards come in a range of shapes and styles, including: rectangular, square, round, roll top, arched and curved. These all come in different sizes, some designed to dominate a room and others to blend in quietly with it. Colours come in all varieties, from neutrals to floral patterns and deep purples. The upholstery itself can be buttoned, tufted, padded and fluted; all effects which add to the grandeur and luxury of the piece.
For example a typical contemporary headboard might be rectangular with a diamond buttoned effect, upholstered in clean linen with neutral tones. A more traditional headboard might be a curved board with pleats or studs and upholstered in velvet. Consider the theme of your bedroom when choosing your style motif and you are sure to get the right effect.
Once installed, upholstered headboards can add a touch of timeless elegance to your home as well as providing an element of comfort and luxury in your most peaceful space. They are also a great way to upgrade your home and spruce up your master or spare bedroom with a personal touch. When it comes to upholstered headboard designs the sky really is the limit, so don’t hold back. Of course once installed, you may find it that bit harder to get out of bed in the morning!
