You need a bed that looks as good as it feels! My beds and headboards give you the look for less so you can snuggle up in your dream bed without nightmares of steep pricetags. Go for the plush comfort of an upholstered headboard, the glitz of a glam bed, the timeless appeal of a sleigh bed or the utility of a storage bed — my choices offer something for every style!
Bed headboards are typically a few inches wider than a mattress, although there are exceptions. As a general guide, a 38-inch-wide twin mattress headboard will be about 41 inches wide, a 54-inch-wide full mattress headboard will be about 57 inches wide, a 60-inch-wide queen mattress headboard will be about 63 inches wide, and a 76-inch-wide king mattress headboard will be about 79 inches wide.
Some headboards are much wider than the bed for a statement look and some curve around the top of the bed, adding a few more inches to the width. However, these measurements are handy to have while you’re shopping for new bedroom furniture to ensure everything fits the way you expect.
Technically speaking, if your bed structure doesn’t rely on a headboard, of course you can sleep in a bed without one. Stylistically speaking, you need a headboard!
Bedroom headboards were originally intended to add a layer of protection from the cold between your head and the wall since homes in the past were not as well insulated as they are today. These days, headboards add interest to a bedroom and allow you to showcase your personal style.
Beyond that, headboards have the benefit of protecting your wall from wear and tear, helping to keep your pillows in place, providing back and neck support when you sit up in bed and, yes, they can still offer a layer of protection between you and the outside cold or heat - especially if you live in an older home that has poor insulation.
If you snag one of my storage headboards or beds, you have the added benefit of more space to stash your stuff. And if that isn’t enough, I also have beds and headboards with built-in lighting and USB ports, truly making a headboard an essential piece of bedroom furniture!
Most standard bed frames are designed to attach to any headboard as long as they’re the same size. For example, a queen headboard must be attached to a queen bed frame.
At the front of the bed frame, you’ll see headboard brackets with two to four horizontal slots. This is where you’ll attach the headboard to the frame by inserting a bolt through the slot to the headboard leg. Your new headboard should include the necessary fasteners. Next, slide a washer onto the bolt on the other side of the leg. Then, simply screw a nut onto the bolt until it is tight. Repeat this for all of the brackets, and you’re all set!
One surefire placement for your bed is against the longest wall in the room, opposite from the door. Of course, depending on the layout of the room this is not always possible. When considering other placements, try not to completely block any windows or have the bed right next to a door. Also avoid placing your bed facing any windows if it means the sunrise will wake you up every day—unless you’re into that!
Bed placement typically impacts where the rest of your bedroom furniture will go since it’s the largest piece of furniture, so be sure to keep that in mind when deciding where to put your bed. You’ll also want to make sure there’s enough space on the sides of the bed for any nightstands. Don’t forget to consider the location of electrical outlets!
While it’s important to your comfort and sleep where you put your bed, there’s not a set location where it must go. And, let’s be honest, sometimes you just have to put your bed where it’ll fit! The most important factor when deciding where to place your bed is your comfort, so don’t worry too much about putting your bed in the “right” spot.
