What to Consider Before Buying
What is a tufted headboard?
A tufted headboard, also called an upholstered headboard, is a headboard made from a solid piece of wood, covered with padding, and upholstered with various fabrics from polyester to linen to silk. The wooden back provides support for the headboard while the padded upholstery provides a nice cushy feeling to make the headboard comfortable. Often times buttons are pressed into the headboard and secured to the wooden frame to provide a beautiful texture to the headboard.
Popular Upholstered Headboard Styles
Many upholstered headboards have a slight curve, providing the bedroom with a touch of glamour.
High Arch / Scalloped Headboard
Headboards with high arches, have deep dramatic curves, creating an ultra luxurious design that instantly upgrades any bedroom design.
Rectangular / Straight Headboard
Upholstered headboards with a straight top are often referred to as square or rectangular headboards. For those looking for a modern style headboard, this shape is a great selection!
The fabric used in the upholstery will greatly affect the overall price of the headboard. Below are some common fabric choices:
- Cotton Blends
- Synthetic Materials
Beware of purchasing a headboard made of 100% synthetic materials such as rayon, nylon or polyester because these can cause you to “sleep hot”. Synthetic materials don’t breathe well and retain heat, which will not be enjoyable during warm weather.
Types of Upholstered Headboards
1) HEADBOARD ONLY
This is the best option for those looking for a cheaper headboard or if you already have a bed frame that you like. The headboard comes attached to 2 legs, which need to be tightly screwed into the back of your bed frame. The set up is quick, easy, and can dramatically change the look of your room.
2) HEADBOARD + FRAME
Many upholstered headboards include a bed frame. This style is really great, because the platform provides upholstery all around the bed, which more dramatically changes the look of your room. These bed frames usually come with wooden slates to support the mattress.
3) HEADBOARD + FOOTBOARD
The most expensive option of them all are the upholstered headboard and footboard combination. These are really striking and will completely transform the way your bedroom looks.
