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.
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.
