Besides creating a backrest for sitting in bed, a headboard helps create a focal point in the bedroom. While wooden ones work well in traditionally styled rooms, leather or metal types make a contemporary statement. For a daring look that draws the eye, consider colourful upholstered headboards with bold patterns.
Moreover, though matching a headboard to the width makes sense, a wider one creates a more cosmopolitan look. A new headboard can give your bedroom the refreshing facelift it needs.
