Advice Bedroom Style

WOW Factor Headboards


A new headboard can create instant drama and wow factor in your new bedroom. These are our highly recommended headboards for creating impact.

Ingredients for success.

There are a few things to consider when choosing a headboard to stun. The main aspects of a show stopping headboard are:

  • Height – The taller the better.  Be mindful of the perspective of the room.
  • Shape – This will be dictated by your own personal preference.  We like shaped and curvy.
  • Fabric – Naturally, the bigger the print you choose, the more headboard you will need.
  • Style – Headboards can be embellished with all manner of trims.  In particular, we can do wonderful things with studs – just ask.

Recommended Models.

Here at the Headboard Workshop, we’ve designed our range of upholstered headboards to reflect the attributes above. We’ve done all the leg work for you, leaving you free to click, pick and relax!

High Headboards.

The Breathtaking High Easdale. The Easdale is a real crossover between Traditional and contemporary and has an imposing and impressive structural quality.

Plush deep buttoning is surrounded by a wide upholstered plinth to accentuate its height and boosts its luxury appeal. It looks fantastic in flat velvet.

Embellished Headboards

Studded Colonsay.  Strong and structural, the Colonsay lets the detail do all the talking with a row of studs to each side that cross over in the corners. Recommended for a masculine look.

The Handsome High Jura.  The Jura’s neat patchwork design, shallow buttoning and self pipe detail work really well together to create a smart, contemporary headboard. Wool is a brilliant choice for the Jura. Similarly, a plain fronted version is available if you love the border, but are not keen on the shallow buttons and patchwork. Works brilliantly with two rows of studs in place of the piping.
