HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HEADBOARD
Think about the size of your bedroom to make sure your headboard is the right scale. A large or tall room will need a substantial headboard, while a small room needs a headboard in a smaller size.
Headboards can be made from many materials or a combination, including wood, leather, iron, brass and bronze.
Upholstered headboards are quite popular today, and can be designed to look tailored and modern, with sharp, square corners, or feminine and soft with rounded shapes.
You might decide not to even have a headboard. Instead you can embellish the wall behind your bed with artwork, shelves, a hanging tapestry or patterned wallpaper.
Or think about using lots and lots of pillows standing upright on your bed as a substitute for a headboard.

An alternate option is to add patterned wallpaper on the wall behind your bed.
