Elevate your bedroom with the perfect bed head

The right bed head can act as your focal point within a room, drawing the eye and setting the tone for the rest of your space. Finding the right size and style will make all the difference in the overall look and feel of your bedroom, as well as helping you get a better night’s sleep. If you’re looking for your next headboard and are unsure where to start, we’ll take you through some of the main points to consider.

Find the right bed head size

Headboards come in various sizes, starting as a single to a super king bed head. The easiest way to find the right size is to match the bed head to the size of your mattress. If you have a queen bed, opt for a queen bed head. Another thing to consider is what the bed is being used for. A single bed head is a perfect addition to any kid’s bed, while a double bed head can add a touch of luxury to any guest room without taking up too much space.

 There’s also the height of the headboard to consider. Do you want your bed to act as a bold statement? Go for an oversized or tall style. On the other hand, shorter headboards are great for smaller spaces while still showing some personality. Remember to consider the ceiling height and your headboard’s appearance relative to the room size.

Bed head styles

Do you want your bed to act as a statement piece or prefer a subtle design? Bed heads come in various different styles to suit all design palates - from classic to contemporary. A tapered rectangular bed head is a traditional piece that can help create a streamlined look. Rounded, however , can add a touch of contemporary styling to your space. If you want to add extra luxury, a winged buttoned style is always a beautiful choice.

Free-standing bed headboards

Free-standing bed heads are great statement pieces without commitingto changing the whole suite. Our Slumberland range is one example of bed heads that can be connected to a Slumberland base and swapped in and out as your style changes. These headboards come with a bracket that allows them to remain upright while still sitting stylishly behind any Slumberland base of the same size.

Fabric upholstered bed heads

An upholstered bed head offers the ultimate softness to your space. Whether you want to cosy up with a book or prop yourself up to watch your favourite show, upholstered headboards add a little bit of extra cushioning and comfort - plus, there are  plenty of options to choose from, including:

●     Square or tapered bed heads without buttons or pleating are a great subtle choice, letting your bedding be the star of the show, whereas a buttoned bed head can make a real statement.

●      Neutral tones such as beige, off-white, and grey provide versatility while allowing vibrant colours like royal blue or mustard to take centre stage.

Whether you go for a square, tapered or buttoned finish, our upholstered bed heads can add a luxurious finish to your bedroom. 

Bed head FAQ

Should a headboard be wider than the mattress?

Headboards can be wider than the mattress by a few inches. However, this can vary depending on the size of your mattress and the style of your bed frame. Extra-wide bed heads can extend past your nightstand, while wall-mounted headboards are typically the same size as the mattress.

Can you put a bed head on any bed?

Yes! Freestanding bed heads are fitted with a bracket to allow them to remain upright. Our Slumberland bed heads are designed to sit behind any existing Slumberland base of the same similar size.

Is it better to sleep with a headboard?

One of the main benefits of sleeping with an upholstered headboard is that it can help create protection against the wall from scratches or marks due to its upholstered material.
