What is a headboard?

A headboard is a stand that resides at the top of the bed elevated from the mattress; they are included as part of the bed or sold as a separate accessory. Please note, when sold independently, our headboards are solely compatible with divan beds. 

What are headboards made from?

A headboard can encompass many materials; the most common are; wooden headboards, metal headboards and upholstered headboards with a soft, stylish fabric material. Wooden headboards are considered classic and traditional, whereas an upholstered or metal headboard suits a contemporary bedroom.

What materials does Mattressman's range of headboards feature?

Upholstered headboards


Complement your bed with a luxury headboard upholstered in fabric, with an abundance of character and warmth emanating from a fabric headboard; they make for a great purchase. The other obvious benefit of an upholstered headboard is that the sumptuous fabric finish allows for a comfortable seating option. 

Faux leather

If you're looking for an elegant headboard with the premium benefits of leather at a more affordable price, a faux leather headboard represents a viable option.

What types of headboards does Mattressman feature?

Mattressman stocks various headboard designs; shop our extensive range to add the finishing touch to your bed.

Floorstanding Headboard

As the name suggests, a floorstanding headboard stands directly on the floor and is renowned for its sturdiness and ease of assembly.

Strutted Headboard

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

Tall Headboard

A tall headboard stands proudly above the mattress and adds a touch of elegance and luxury to the bedroom, showcasing the bed as the room's focal point.

Buttoned Headboard

Buttoned headboards are a stylish and modern choice, with elegant, ample buttoning and intricate details conveyed throughout the headboard.

Winged Headboard

A winged headboard features overarching wings on either side of the headboard, paving the way for a cosy and intimate sleeping experience whilst adding a beautiful finish to the bed.

What are the different sizes of headboards available at Mattressman?

Our headboards are available as small single size headboards, single, small double, double, king size and super king. So whatever size bed you may have, Mattressman's superb range of headboards caters towards your bed, bedroom and style. Find your perfect headboard at an even greater price from our wonderful collection. It's worth noting that your new headboard must match the corresponding bed size; for example, a king size headboard wouldn't fit a double bed and would instead require a double bed headboard.

What is the purpose of a headboard?


The headboard can complement your bedroom design and create a cohesive, stylish aesthetic.

Physical barrier

If the bed is placed against the wall, the headboard creates a physical barrier between the bed frame and the wall; this ensures sufficient wall protection when sitting and leaning against the headboard.

Neck and back support

So much time is spent sitting in bed; whether you enjoy breakfast in bed, playing video games or anything in between, a headboard provides comforting support to the back and neck.
