For a younger person who may not have a room that offers a lot of space, using a wrap around style for fabric headboards is extremely complimenting. Other materials that are used for a wrap around style headboards can produce a repressive feeling. This headboard, when covered with the right fabric, will yield a soft and pleasing look. Wrap around style headboards are also great for those who are looking to feel more secure while they sleep.
Why the wrap around headboard is good for a room with little space, such as a dorm or child’s room, is because its effect does not enlarge the space the bed already occupies. The room does not appear to be crowded or stifling. The fun colors available for fabric headboards - orange, lime green, sunshine yellow, and purple just to name a few - definitely give the room a personalized and fun look. If you are seeking a more conservative, reserved look for your room; you may want to consider using a "straight headboard flush" fabric headboard. If you would like to add a bit of flair to your headboard, look into button and pleating options.
