Headboards are often thought to have began in Ancient Egypt, as a way to stop people from getting cold air around their heads. They’ve come a long way since then, from simple lumps of wood to carefully crafted pieces that add beauty and style to any bedroom.
A traditional headboard affixes to the back of the bed, so do check that your bed is compatible — most are. You’ll usually find these headboards with curved lines, which add to the relaxing vibe of your bedroom. Many are studded or tufted, or upholstered in easy-to-clean fabrics.
Choose a soft color or one that complements your bedroom décor. Whites and greys are popular choices for headboards, as they work well with bold and bright bedding. Darker colors also work, especially with rustic or wooden bed frames. Let your own sense of style guide you.
