Bedheads, also referred to by some people as headboards, is a board or other material, like wicker, timber, tufted upholstery or other fabric, which is affixed to the top of a bed behind your head. They’re decorative panels which are placed at the head of a bed to provide comfort and style.
Today we’re seeing a resurgence in the popularity of bedheads, with many designers and retailers showing new interest in this bedroom mainstay. Creating a faux headboard or affixing a chic bedhead to your current ensemble is the easiest way to re-style your bedroom.
A stylish bedhead creates a focal point and instantly transforms a bedroom. In fact, many interior designers believe that no bedroom is complete without a bedhead. A bedroom without a bedhead is likely to look unfinished and perhaps a little unloved, so whether you’re looking to update your existing bedhead or adding to an ensemble (bed base and mattress), let’s take a closer look at the options available to you.
