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.
Having a headboard can add elegance and sophistication to your bed, it makes it look more inviting, more opulent. When you buy a divan bed, for example, it doesn’t come with a headboard, which means you have to buy one separately and leather headboards are high on the list of chosen materials due to their stylish colours and designs. The first benefit you will notice when it comes to leather headboards is the choice of designs available. You can find just about any design that will blend seamlessly into your overall room style to compliment the space. From padded options to straight and seamless finishes. There are just so many great options to choose from.
