Two Great Tips to Pairing Beds & Headboards

Are you looking to bring a splash of glamour and style to your bedroom? A powerful space where your day begins and where your day ends – your bedroom is more than just a place where you sleep. Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and if there is one way to spruce up your sanctuary, do it with a new headboard. A headboard is not just a pretty piece of wood designed to benefit your health; the right headboard is a design statement that can make or break any bedroom.

A Headboard Can Launch Any Bedroom into a World of Sophistication and Style

Once seen only in top-tier hotels, headboards have gone mainstream and can now be found in modern bedrooms throughout the globe. A powerful accent piece, and often the focal point, a headboard can launch any bedroom into a world of sophistication and style. Setting the style of a bedroom – headboards are not just decorative, but they can also be useful. Everything from providing a more secure and comfortable backrest, to holding books, glasses, decorative items or lights, headboards give the bed a presence in the room. But to work well, a headboard must not only look good, it must also complement the bed, which leads us to the golden question of how to choose the right headboard for your bed? Here are a few great tips to pairing beds and headboards.

#1 Get Your Style Right

Ask any interior decorator and they will all agree that beds and headboards are the most important pieces of furniture in any bedroom, which is why they should both stand out and complement each other. But that doesn’t mean they have to match each other. Because they vary in shape, size and material, knowing what styles are out there is an important part of matching beds and headboards together. First and foremost, don’t be afraid to be creative and mix it up. A headboard is an opportunity to go big, and should be inspired by your bed’s style, your wall colour, and your nightstand and dresser. Anything from ultra-modern to classic – a style that stands out from the rest of the elements in your room can go a long way to making your bed pop.

#2 Make Sure You Choose the Right Material and Colour
