What is a headboard?
A headboard is a unit that resides above the seeping end of the bed and covers the bed's width. The most common variations of headboards are wooden, fabric and metal headboards.
Why should I consider a black headboard?
Black is considered a rich and intense colour and, in recent years, black has become a mainstay in living spaces and connotes power and elegance; a black headboard is therefore considered a strong statement and the bedroom's focal point. Moreover, the colour black can be paired with an array of different colours and can be the basis for both traditional and contemporary aesthetics. So, complement your bed frame and bedroom décor with a stunning black headboard from our extensive range.

Consider a black faux leather headboard

Mattressman's black headboard styles
Our black headboard styles consist of buttoned and winged headboard designs; read below for further information regarding these designs.
A buttoned style is considered a modern headboard choice and features beautiful rows of deep, ample buttoning.
Winged headboards are often regarded as the most elegant and opulent headboard choice; this type of headboard features two overarching wings on either side of the headboard to create a cosy, sleeping environment and elevates the bed frame to the position as the most glamorous piece of furniture within the room.
Apart from style, what does a headboard offer?
Neck and back support
When sitting upright in bed, be it for food, a television series or anything else, an upholstered headboard provides cushioned neck and back support.
Protects your pillows
The addition of a headboard prevents the pillows from slipping down the sleeping end of the bed.
If the bed is placed against the wall, the headboard can be a protective barrier to prevent minor scuffs and damage between the bed and the wall.
