A headboard is defined as a piece of furniture that is attached to the head of a bed. Traditionally a headboard was used to isolate the sleeper from drafts and cold walls. The headboard would leave space between the bed and the wall and allow the cold air to sink to the floor. If the bed was pushed against the wall then the cold air would settle on the bed making the sleeper uncomfortable. Headboards were made out of wood because wood becomes less cold than bricks or stones. Humanity has made tremendous progress over the years and the improvements in architecture have made the traditional function of a headboard redundant. Still headboard beds are very popular and in this article we will find out more about modern headboards and what the advantages of a headboard bed are.
They are available in the simple square design. You can also get headboards that have rounded corners or are arched. Headboards are available for every bed size; the main sizes available are twin full queen and king and California king. The twin size can also be referred to as single while full is called double. Headboards can add a lot of style to a room and can be an excellent focus for the design in the room. If you are redecorating or are getting a new place you should definitely look at headboards beds not only for their style but for their practical uses as well.
My tip if youre stuck for space: when purchasing a king headboard be sure to order as "headboard only" (without the accompanying footboard or rails). Its worth noting that all headboards will attach to any standard side rail frame or failing that you can purchase a headboard-only side rail bed frame that will allow easy attachment.
