Upholstered headboards add a touch of luxury to any style bedroom furniture. They are functional, beautiful, and provide a focal point for your bedroom. There are many ways to customize your headboard to complement your bedroom furniture design, here are a few suggestions on elements to consider when incorporating an upholstered headboard into your bedroom:
- Button tufting will add a plump and luxurious look to any headboard. This works best with a solid color fabric so the tufting and buttons show. You can choose buttons covered in the same fabric or opt for a coordinating color to make them stand out. The choice is yours.
- A unique shape will add interest. Don’t limit yourself to straight lines, consider the shape of your room, type of fabric being used, as well as your own personal style. Make a bold statement with a fanciful curlicue design or an oversized rectangle that reaches to the ceiling.
- Think function as well as comfort. For a teenager’s room you may want to upholster the headboard with a fabric like canvas or burlap, turning the headboard into a bulletin board. Teenagers love to display photos, ribbons and mementos in their room. A headboard full of pockets to hold small stuffed animals or nighttime blankies and binkies will delight any young child and eliminate the panic of finding that favorite bedtime friend.
- Don’t forget the dressmaker details that turn an ordinary run of the mill headboard into a custom piece meant just for you: contrast welting, nailhead trim, buttons, ribbon, braid and fabric cut on the bias for interest.
