Your bedroom should be a calm, peaceful, and inviting retreat where you can sleep, dream, and escape the chaos that often comes hand in hand with the rest of the household.

This starts by creating a space that you love to spend time in! 

When it comes to decorating your bedroom, adding a striking headboard as a focal point is a great way to further enhance the aesthetic appeal of the space, in line with your own distinct sense of style.

Allowing you to inject a healthy dose of elegance, sophistication, and style into any bedroom, an upholstered headboard will add the perfect finishing touch to any room.

But that’s not all… a headboard is much more than a visual focal point. It can be also be used to create a comfortable back support when sitting up, provide a practical storage solution depending on the design you opt for and of course, you won’t lose your pillows.

From single headboards, double headboards, and 4ft double headboards through to king size headboards, super king headboards, and emperor headboards, you will be able to choose from an expansive range of headboards that are available in a huge range of different styles, designs, and sizes that will complement and enhance both contemporary and traditional décor.

We’ve created a helpful guide outlining all of the different headboard materials and styles available, so that you can choose a headboard that fits in with the existing décor of your bedroom and most importantly, a headboard that is able to accommodate your needs.

Choosing the perfect fabric for your headboard 

In the vast majority of bedrooms, the headboard is the first thing that people notice when they step into the room.

And in recent years, fabric headboards have continued to increase in popularity due to the fact that they can be customised to accommodate the existing décor of any bedroom.

Available in a great choice of colours, textures, styles and prints, a fabric headboard is sure to become a welcomed addition to your bedroom – completing the room and adding an eye-catching dimension to the space.

Of course, choosing a fabric headboard will not only allow you to optimise the aesthetic appeal of your room, but it will also allow you to maximise comfort, by select a fabric that will allow you to enjoy a soft cushion to base to lean against when you’re relaxing, reading or watching TV.

Choosing a fabric headboard

There’s a lot to think about when it comes to choosing the perfect headboard. For example, if you are choosing a fabric headboard for a bed that you use every day, it’s important to choose a fabric that is easy to clean, durable and stain resistant, especially if you have little ones in the house. After all, like the vast majority of upholstered furniture, it’s easy for fabric headboards to succumb to everyday wear and tear.

But that’s not all… when choosing a fabric for your headboard, you should also take into account the location of your bed. For example, if your bed is near to a natural source of sunlight ie; a window, you should choose a fabric that does not fade easily in the sunlight.

There are lots of different fabrics available for your headboard including:  

  • Textured Weave
  • House Velvet
  • County Check
  • Basket Weave
  • Pure Cotton
  • House Linen
  • Faux Wool
  • Flat Velvet
  • Crushed Velvet
  • Linen Spot
  • Brushed Linen
  • Faux Suede
  • Faux Leather

Choosing the perfect height for your headboard

Fabric headboards come in all shapes and sizes, therefore, you’re sure to find a headboard that can accommodate your bed and the space that you are working with.

However, as a general rule of thumb, if you have a small double bed, opting for a higher headboard is a great way to create the illusion that you have a larger bed. On the other hand, if your bedroom has low ceilings or generally feels small and enclosed, you should consider choosing a decorative shaped headboard.

Explore and discover a wide choice of buttons for your headboard

One of the main advantages of fabric headboards is that they offer lots of opportunities when it comes to experimenting with different colours, embellishments and buttons.

Adding a plush and luxurious feel to any headboard, buttons are a great way of adding a new and exciting dimension to the overall look and feel of your headboard. Headboards that feature deep buttoning have continued to increase in popularity, especially those that combine this technique with a wide headboard. You can either choose your buttons to match the fabric and texture of the headboard or opt for a contrasting colour – the possibilities are truly endless.

Swarovski Crystals are also a popular choice. Other popular finishes include self-piped in matching fabric, vintage studs, chrome studs and contrast piped.
