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.
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.
