Measuring the headboard. The optimum height for any headboard is no higher than the midpoint of the lowest wall in the room. This is so that the headboard does not draw all of the attention away from the depth of the room, thereby making it appear smaller. The goal is to make your room look as spacious and roomy as possible, so having a headboard that only reaches halfway up the wall will help keep your room looking more open. To truly appreciate the headboard that you choose, try to find a fabric that either matches most of the other furnishings of the room, or change the furnishing to match headboard. You may also want to consider purchasing some new bed shawls, duvets, pillow covers, and other bed accessories to further compliment your bed.
Cleaning your tufted headboard mainly depends on the material used. If you have a leather tufted headboard, you first need to determine the finish of the leather before proceeding with cleaning. If you have finished leather, you need to put a small amount of moisturizing soap on a damp cloth. Bring this to lather before rubbing on to the leather without using too much water. Wipe away the lather with a fresh damp cloth and then polish with a dry towel. Treat the leather with conditioner. If your leather is unfinished, you will need to use damp cloth or sponge to rub saddle soap onto the leather. Wipe away the lather and allow to air dry. Oil the leather with preservative to keep the quality of the leather. If you use fabric like canvas, there are a lot of spray-on cleaners available in the market. Otherwise, an option would be to use a dry cleaning agent and brush. On top of that, a vacuum will be handy to take out all dusts and cleaning residues.
