A headboard takes up a chunk of wall space, so it’s often what people see first when they enter a bedroom. Make sure it’s focal point-worthy by using one of the following ideas.
Select a style to suit you Remember, headboards come in all shapes and sizes and can turn a basic bedroom into a master suite. Headboards can also be a great way to add a distinctive, personal touch to your bed and your whole bedroom. We love the many offerings available from Headboards for Africa – with so many choices of styles, including wooden or veneer headboards, and many come with handy shelves for things like books, alarm clocks or family photos.
Consider height It is important to consider the height of your ceiling in choosing a headboard. Tall ceilings may do well with a large feature headboard that extends up the wall, however, lower ceilings may require a more compact version. If your bed will be placed under a window, this too will affect the height of your headboard. In such cases, you may want to choose something that does not completely block out the natural light from the window.
Choose materials Whether a beautifully upholstered fabric, or solid wood headboard, choose the right material that works to complement your design style. We love how a headboard can add texture, colour and depth to a bedroom through a striking upholstered fabric. In a child’s bedroom, however, you may want to choose something more durable and easy to clean – a wooden headboard would probably work best here.
Determine your budget Headboards can range in cost, depending on the style you select, but this does not mean that you have to limit the visual appeal of your bedroom. In fact, Headboards for Africa have a stunning Economy range of headboards that are the more affordable option. Not sacrificing on quality, the Econo range is versatile and affordable, from 600 high from only R650, manufactured to the same high quality and standards as all their headboards.Contact: Headboard for Africa
