What is a headboard?

A headboard is a unit that resides at the top of the bed, elevated from the mattress. Headboards are often upholstered in fabric except for wooden headboards, which, as the name suggests, are solely constructed from wood, similar to the case with metal headboards built from metal.

What styles of single bed headboards does Mattressman feature?

Floorstanding headboards

Floorstanding headboards are freestanding as opposed to wall-mounted headboards, and whilst they can be utilised as standalone purchases, they are best suited for a divan bed frame.

Strutted headboards

Strutted headboards are designed and manufactured for divan beds and can easily be attached to the bed via its two wooden struts.

Buttoned Headboards

A 'buttoned' design on a headboard refers to the headboard's style; buttoned headboards are sleek and stylish with their deep ample rows of buttoning and are sure to elevate your bed to the room's focal point.

Winged Headboards

Winged headboards feature overarching wings on either side of the headboard and are considered the perfect headboard for creating an elegant yet cosy sleeping environment.

How do I choose the right headboard?

Choosing an upholstered headboard is subjective; it depends on your budget, taste and preferences. Consider the size of your bed and match it with a corresponding headboard; from this point on, you can tailor your headboard to your preferred style and existing bedroom décor..

Apart from style, what does an upholstered headboard offer?

Neck and back support

A lot of the time we spend in bed is sitting upright; whether it's watching tv or having breakfast in bed, we utilise the bed for so much more than just sleep. With this in mind, an upholstered single headboard offers cushioned neck and back support.

Wall protection

If the head of the bed is placed directly against a wall, there is the potential risk of damage to the wall from the bed; a headboard combats this by acting as a protective barrier between the bed and the wall.

What brands of single upholstered headboards does Mattressman feature?

Here at Mattressman, we only stock products from trusted and reputable brands, consequently ensuring your bed frame is taken care of. You'll be spoilt for choice with an array of brands to choose from, including Swanglen and Silentnight.
