Here comes the fun part: choosing the style of your headboard. Though most people think of a wooden-style headboard, there are an astounding number of options out there for headboards. You can look for thick fabric headboards, leather headboards, and metal headboards. These also come in an array of colors that are sure to match the decor of your room! If you choose the classic wood headboard, you can find some well priced oak, walnut, and birch options.
Let’s talk about measurements. Now, double beds can be a bit tricky, since depending on the brand, style, or manufacturer, there may be different widths and lengths. It is imperative that you measure the actual mattress and box spring before looking for a headboard. Seeing a headboard that is made for a "double bed" does not necessarily mean that it will fit YOUR double bed.
