A headboard can help prop up your pillows and bring together the design scheme of your bedroom. In shopping for a headboard, consider the size of your bed, any spatial constraints you have, the style and decor of your bedroom, and your personal taste. The first factor to consider when you shop for a headboard is the size of your bed.

Why choose a headboard?

Headboards offer many practical features in a bedroom. Having a physical barrier between your sleeping space and the wall behind your bed prevents your wall from becoming damaged or marked. It also prevents you from accidentally bumping your head against the wall while you sleep. A headboard can be the perfect place to learn when reading a book on the bed, and you can also have breakfast in bed by leaning on it.
