Measuring the headboard. The optimum height for any headboard is no higher than the midpoint of the lowest wall in the room. This is so that the headboard does not draw all of the attention away from the depth of the room, thereby making it appear smaller. The goal is to make your room look as spacious and roomy as possible, so having a headboard that only reaches halfway up the wall will help keep your room looking more open. To truly appreciate the headboard that you choose, try to find a fabric that either matches most of the other furnishings of the room, or change the furnishing to match headboard. You may also want to consider purchasing some new bed shawls, duvets, pillow covers, and other bed accessories to further compliment your bed.
Leather headboards are considered as a luxury choice. They may never be worn but they requires maintenance on a regular basis to keep their shape. When you bring a brand new leather headboard home, you must treat it with special mild water cleaner. Besides, you still need to treat them with soap at a same time. And the wood headboard is a certainly life-saver when it comes to maintenance. All you need to do is wipe it with damp cloth.
