Using Headboards to Create Space in a Bedroom
Headboards come in many different shapes, sizes, materials, and colours. They can be very simple and utilitarian, or ornate and decorative. Some headboards are even made of solid wood. The history of headboards is much the same as the history of the bed. They evolved from simple, open-ended posts into comfortable headboards with attached footings and bracing.
Originally, the headboard was a simple piece of furnishing that attached to the front of a bed to keep sleepers separated from cold and drafts. Historically, they were typically made of wood, which was less thermally conducting than metal or stone, and therefore was not as energy efficient. Modern headboards in Comfy Bedheads Adelaide are much more flexible and can be made of a variety of materials, including the use of upholstered plastics, faux wood, leather, vinyl, or metal. Headboards are now commonly made of metal, wood, and even composites such as UPVC and Honeycomb.
A headboard can also be used to create space in a bedroom by attaching to the wall at the head and foot end of the bed. This creates space in the bedroom for dressers, chests, night stands, or other furnishings. Headboards can be found with open shelving or closed shelf arrangements, allowing the easy placement of dressers and chests without any interference with nearby headboards or beds.
When shopping for Comfy Bedheads Adelaide and matching pieces, keep several points in mind. First, it is important to select headboards that fit perfectly into your room’s dimensions. Measuring for headboards may be done by using a tape measure, or you can also make a few measurements on wall studs, tables, and sofa cushions to ensure an accurate fit. When selecting a headboard, remember that all headboards will hang lower than the surrounding furniture, so if your furniture has high, extendable table legs, headboards will need to be smaller than the tables and couches around which they will hang.
Since the headboards will usually be installed on the wall, consider purchasing matching headboard-side tables to create a more interesting decor. Also, it is often convenient and economical to purchase a headboard with matching headboards, as this will allow you to use the same type of table for both the headboard and the matching headboard on either side of the room. If you prefer to purchase your own headboards, there are many options available. Headboards can be purchased at many furniture stores and even at some home improvement centres.
If you are looking for a unique, classic style headboard, you may want to consider purchasing at Comfy Bedheads Adelaide that is crafted from quiltwood. Quiltwood is very durable and resists warping. Another alternative to purchasing a wooden headboard, is a solid, upholstered frame to replace a wooden headboard in your bedroom. Frames made of quilted fabric or leather are commonly used in bedrooms. With a quilted frame, you can choose fabrics that coordinate with your existing bedroom decor, or choose fabrics that will contrast with your current decor.
