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.
One of the added advantages of choosing leather over other headboard materials is the easy maintenance that you have to do. With wood you need to polish it regularly, watch out for chips and cracks and sometimes even re-varnish after long periods. Leather headboards are so much easier. You need to dust the headboard at least once a week, ensure it is Scotch-guarded and wipe it clean if there are any spills. The material doesn’t chip or crack, so you are guaranteed to enjoy your new headboard for years to come.
