Headboard Designs: Enhance Your Bedroom!

Author imageThe Mattress Warehouse

One of the most prominent elements in any bedroom is the bed, and much of that cosy charm is afforded by your headboard. Not only do headboards offer comfort and support, but they also serve as a focal point that can elevate the entire ambience of your sleep nook.

Don’t agree?

When you walk into a room, what is the first thing that draws your eye to the bed? What makes those late-night phone calls that leave you tracing your duvet patterns comfortable on a restless night? Let’s face it: although often overlooked, headboards are essential to your bedroom design. So, keep reading because this blog will explore five ways you can enhance your bedroom style with the transformative power of our stunning wooden and upholstered headboards –  The Mattress Warehouse Way, of course!

1. Express Your Style 

Your bedroom is where you are supposed to feel at your safest. So it should be an extension of your personality and taste. Whether you prefer sleek and modern or rustic and cosy, there’s a headboard design to match your style at The Mattress Warehouse. A minimalist upholstered headboard in neutral tones for contemporary enthusiasts can create a clean and sophisticated look.

Our RD Anroux Headboard (Allure/Silver) is a plush and elegant upholstered headboard that suits all bed sizes – king-size, queen-size and single-size beds.

On the other hand, for those who love a touch of vintage charm, a reclaimed wood bedhead with intricate carvings adds warmth and character to the room. By selecting a headboard that resonates with your aesthetic preferences, you can infuse your bedroom with a sense of authenticity and personality.

2. Create a Focal Point with a Headboard

When you design a room, focal points are essential for drawing the eye and creating visual interest. A well-designed headboard can serve as the focal point of your bedroom. It centres the space and adds depth to the overall decor. You can opt for a statement headboard with a bold, sturdy frame and luxurious fabrics to make a memorable impression. Take the l classic Oslo Leather Headboard (Mohagony), for instance. Whether it’s a tufted velvet headboard or a sleek metal frame, choosing a design that commands attention will instantly elevate the look of your bedroom.

3. Enhance Comfort and Support

While aesthetics are important, don’t sleep on a headboard’s functionality when choosing a bedhead. Beyond its visual appeal, a headboard provides essential support for your pillows and cushions. And also your back, when you sit up in bed. The point is that a headboard ensures a comfortable and restful sleep environment. Additionally, some bedhead designs feature built-in storage compartments or shelving units, providing convenient space-saving solutions for organising books, lamps, or decorative items. By prioritising both comfort and functionality, not only can you create a gorgeous bedroom but also one that is practical and efficiently caters to all your restful needs.

4. Find Your Headboard Fit

Every bedroom is unique. And so your headboard should be too. Whether you have a small, cosy nook or a spacious master suite, there’s a headboard design that can fit your space perfectly. The Mattress Warehouse offers customisable options, allowing you to select the dimensions, materials, and finishes that best suit your needs. By tailoring your headboard to the specific requirements of your bedroom, you can maximise both style and functionality while creating a cohesive and harmonious design scheme.

5. Add a Pop of Colour

Introducing a splash of colour into your bedroom can breathe new life into the space and evoke different moods and emotions. While walls and bedding are obvious choices for adding colour, remember to consider the impact of a colourful headboard. Whether you opt for a vibrant fabric upholstery or a painted wooden frame, a colourful bedhead can serve as a bold focal point that ties the room together. Be adventurous! Our exquisite White Oslo Headboard is a great pick to unleash your boldness. You can try out different hues and tones to find the perfect shade that complements your existing decor and style.
