Ideas for choosing the best headboards for your unique style
For contemporary designed homes, you can really play up unique headboards and be a little daring in your style. Look for stark, crisp lines, smooth finishes, tufted or inset buttons, and generally neutral hues. If on the other hand your home has more of a transitional feel, there is a large array of bed headboards to choose from. Start with the type of material you are interested in, decide whether it is a metal or fabric headboard and refine from there. Transitional styles will meld with other decor more readily, so if you are unsure of your specific style, this is a great place to start. Also look for understated details and refined geometric shapes! If your home is more traditional, look for classically styled headboards, including an ornate metal bed frame with headboard or a highly detailed tufted headboard.

What a new headboard can add to your room
One of the best ways to anchor the furniture in a bedroom is to incorporate a stylish headboard for your bed. It brings a level of finish and style, while making the design of your room feel more complete. Homes that have a minimalist look will often forgo the headboard altogether, but will need to find other ways of anchoring the design of the room. A wall mounted headboard is a great way to add that finishing touch, and is particularly useful in a smaller room, as it does not need a footboard or frame to be installed. If you want a bed headboard that fits a particular decor, it will come down to the material. A barnside wood headboard with a distinct rustic or lodge look to it, and a nickel plated headboard with scrollwork and filigrees will have a more traditional look.

Headboards by comfort and style
When it comes to choosing comfort and style for your headboard, it is all about choosing between hard materials or soft, upholstered pieces. Hard surfaces will generally offer the best materials for ornate headboards, as motifs can be carved or shaped in metal work. Nonetheless, you can still incorporate ornate details into fabric headboards, seen in the textile designs and stitching. No matter the size, whether it is a queen bed headboard or a king headboard, a fabric covered piece will also bring the most comfort. It will soften the overall look to your bed, while still being stylish.

A: Upholstered and tufted headboards are in style because they bring an added softness to a bedroom. Antique brass, brushed nickel, wooden, and rattan are also popular materials. Some metal framed headboards will have a traditional or antique style, while others will have a more modern or transitional look. Tufted headboards are popular within the realm of modern bedding.

In general, most headboards will come fully assembled or mostly assembled and the work of installing it onto your frame or wall will come into play.
