What is a headboard?

Headboards reside above the bed frames' sleeping end and measure the bed's width. The most common headboard types consist of wood, metal or fabric upholsteries. Headboards purchased as standalone products are often designed and manufactured to fit divan bed bases.

How do I choose the right headboard for my bed?

From a stylistic viewpoint, it's important that your bedroom furniture and colour scheme complement one another to ensure a cohesive aesthetic. This can range from bedside tables, drawers and bedding, all working in conjunction with one another. With a headboard, it isn't a case of one size fits all, and metal beds with headboards, for example, differ greatly from upholstered beds. It's, therefore, important to not consider a headboard in isolation and instead assess its suitability for your bed frame. Another reason why choosing the right headboard for your bed is important is its elevated height and status as the bedroom's focal point; it's important that your headboard represents luxury and the highest quality. Moreover, it's essential that the size of your new headboard matches your bed frame; for example, a king size headboard wouldn't be appropriate for a single bed.

What colours does the British Bed Company headboard collection consist of?

Tailor your new headboard to your bed and choose from an extensive range of colours consisting of brown, grey, silver, black, pink and more.

What types of headboards does the British Bed Company produce?

Tall headboards

As the name suggests, this type of headboard stands tall and showcases the bed as the room's focal point.

Buttoned headboards

A buttoned headboard is considered an incredibly stylish and contemporary choice, with ample rows of glorious buttoning.

Winged headboards

A winged headboard is perhaps the most opulent and elegant headboard choice. This design incorporates overarching wings on either side of the headboard to create a stunning aesthetic and a cosy sleeping environment.

Strutted headboards

A strutted headboard features two sturdy struts for a seamless and straightforward attachment to a divan bed.

Apart from style, what is the importance of a headboard?

Whilst headboards are renowned for their style, there are many benefits accompanying a headboard; continue reading for further insight.

Neck and back support

An upholstered headboard provides cushioned neck and back support for all the times spent sitting upright in bed.

Ensures pillows remain in place

As trivial as it may sound, in the absence of a headboard, pillows are prone to falling off the sleeping end of the mattress. If this happens frequently, it can pose quite a frustration. A headboard combats this and keeps your pillows securely in place.

Wall protection

If the bed is placed against the wall, a headboard can act as a protective barrier and prevent minor scuffs and damage from occurring.
