How to Choose the Right Headboard

What’s the difference between freestanding bed headboards and wall mounted headboards?

Put simply, wall mounted headboards are drilled and fixed firmly to the wall, whereas freestanding headboards come without any screws, requiring no drill work and stand proudly of their own accord. This allows for more flexibility – and means there’s no need for Polyfilla when you decide you want a design refresh in the room again!

Different headboard designs

Wingback headboard

A wingback headboard has two upholstered panels either side of the main board to give your bed a better sense of cosy headspace.

Deep-padded headboard

If you’re searching for a headboard to match a bedroom oozing with sophistication and class, look no further than a deep-padded upholstered headboard. A design that offers a truly contemporary floor-strutted aesthetic with a deep-padded, vertically lined design. Talk about a centrepiece.

Buttoned headboard

Give your bed a complete makeover with a timeless buttoned headboard – an effortless, luxurious lift for any bedroom.

Sleigh bed wooden headboard

If you’re after something a little more classic – and by classic we mean 18th century French classic.

What height headboard should you get?

There’s no hard and fast rule on headboard height. Instead, headboard widths are the measurable to take note of as they are based on standard UK bed sizes. If you need a headboard for your double bed, take a look for a double bed headboard; if you’re looking for a feature to add to your king bed, check out a selection of king size bed headboards. Simples! The height, whether you fancy short or high, is purely down to personal taste and dependant on the design you’re looking to create in your bedroom.

How to Clean Your Headboard

A statement headboard can make the perfect finish for a bedroom! How can you keep it in great condition?

The truth is all it takes is a little TLC to keep your furniture looking fabulous for longer. We’ve collated our top tips on how to clean your headboard, no matter the style or material, to help your bed look as fresh, new and glamorous as the day you bought it.

Let’s start with the basics

Before you get cleaning your headboard, it’s time to get organised and gather your tools. Get your vacuum and some dry cloths ready and invest in a quality fabric spray. At this point, we’d also like to introduce you to your new best friend: baking soda.

You’ll also need to whip up a batch of cleaning solution if you’re about to enter into battle with stubborn stains – simply mix lukewarm water with a small amount of laundry detergent, just enough so the mixture froths a little, and you’re good to go.

How often should you clean your headboard?

For easy ongoing maintenance, a weekly hoover and spritz of fabric spray will keep your headboard free from dirt and dust, as well as smelling nice and fresh.

Every month, it’s a good idea to give your headboard a deeper clean. Simply work some baking soda into your headboard, dampen your cloth and hoover up any residue after leaving to work for a few hours.

Remember: if in doubt about what type of headboard you have before cleaning it – always read the label!
