A versatile choice for those seeking a headboard is the headboard book case. This is particularly great if you are a young child, live in a dorm, or want to show off your book collection. If you also find yourself living in a small establishment and need the shelf space, here’s an answer to your problem! One other thing to consider is the paneling on the double headboard. For a stark contrast, you can have a fairly plain paneling with a natural finish, or a dark finish. There are also leather paneling options that can go with several different styles. Wrought iron and metal-work headboards are great for those seeking a truly unique look for their bedroom. You can even request to have a metal headboard made just to your liking, so put your design skills to work.
Also be sure to measure the bed frame, if you already have one. This will also need to fit within the headboard. The general rule when measuring the height of the headboard is this: measure half way up the wall of the room where the headboard will be placed against. Your headboard should never exceed this height! Try to find a headboard that either reaches half way or down to a few inches below that point. This will prevent the headboard from "crowding" and overpowering the room.
