Wooden headboards have been around for literally thousands of years, and they just keep getting more stylish and versatile. Originally a nighttime draught excluder, today’s headboards are about completing your bedroom in a way that matches your personality.
Carefully crafted wood showing the grain or other natural details is ideal for a rustic or farmhouse-style bedroom. For something more modern, look for painted wood in neutral tones or bright white. Really contemporary styles include geometrically cut slats or angles — for a bedroom that really stands out.
Although a wooden headboard is the obvious choice for a wooden bed frame, they also go amazingly well with other compatible beds, so you might find mixing and matching is the way to go. A touch of raw wood in a brightly colored room can be the contrast that makes the space really pop.
