While there are also really beautiful metal headboards that you can get, the major disadvantage of buying a metal headboard is that you’re often compromising comfort and style, because they are too uncomfortable to lay against. With wood headboards, however, you can watch TV, read a book or other things you need to be lying up in bed a lot at ease.
One of the added advantages of choosing leather over other headboard materials is the easy maintenance that you have to do. With wood you need to polish it regularly, watch out for chips and cracks and sometimes even re-varnish after long periods. Leather headboards are so much easier. You need to dust the headboard at least once a week, ensure it is Scotch-guarded and wipe it clean if there are any spills. The material doesn’t chip or crack, so you are guaranteed to enjoy your new headboard for years to come.
