About Headboards

Headboards lend a nice decorator touch any bedroom and often add functional features like storage or lighting.

While many people use just a headboard to add style to their room, most are offered in sets so you get a footboard, too. And yet a few sets offer bed rails that connect to the headboard & footboard, which also supports the foundation/box spring.

No matter which way you go, you can find headboards to set the tone you are seeking with your bedroom and provide a refreshed feeling to an outdated room with out spending too much.

Headboards come in different sizes that are matched to your mattress size, so be sure to know what size your mattress is when shopping.

You should also bring a few photos, if possible, of your bedroom and any bedroom furniture you already have so easily match up a style and finish to compliment your existing decor. 

One you start shopping, you will soon realize that one can become overwhelmed by the endless styles offered that range from very simply to very elaborate.

Along with style options, there are just as many options in the materials the headboards are made from that range from delicate woods in light tones to heavy and ornate dark woods with lots of carvings. Or artistic metal designs and even a blend of metal and wood.

By bringing a few photos of your room, along with measurements of the mattress and wall the headboard will go on, The Sleep Center will be able to easily assist you in finding the ideal headboard.

If shopping for a headboard & footboard combination, you will also want to measure the distance from the end of the bed to the opposite wall to determine the space  you have for walking and for the footboard.

Next to the style and color of finish, the scale of the bedroom furniture is very important in creating the right balance of harmony!

The Affinity Bed

The Affinity Bed

The Affinity bed marries sloping curves with straight lines to create a soft, yet strong, feel. Straight spindles, topped with detailed castings, end at the distinct slope of the top rail, which features a camelback curve above. This style is repeated in the footboard, setting the scene for comfort.

It is available in full queen and king sizes and as a headboard only.

The Argyle Bed

The Argyle Bed

The Argyle bed is named for the diamond pattern wire design casted below the 54 ½” top rail of the headboard and just above the bottom rail of the 31 ½” footboard. The grills are composed of five sets of double spindles also casted together. There is a curved piece of metal tube added to the bottom of the footboard which gives a bit of additional flair to the design. The finish is called Copper Chrome and is a mixture of copper and silver streaked with black antiquing – which will allow the bed to coordinate with many types of wood accessory pieces.

The Avery Bed

The Avery Bed

Simplicity of materials and design are accented by the horizontal and vertical lines of the headboard and footboard of the Avery. The Mission style of the Avery Bed began its popularity at the turn of the 20th century. This classic style has stood the test of time. Finished in an Oak stain, it has a clear lacquer coat for extra protection of the wood and virtually maintenance free care. This piece of furniture will be a symbol of the character of times gone by and will be with you for years to come.

The Aynsley Bed

The Aynsley Bed

The whimsical scrollwork of the Aynsley bed gives it a light and airy look. The lyrical sweep of the 59 3/8” headboard and matching 43 3/8” footboard are the perfect backdrop for your puffiest pillows and softest comforter; a nurturing sanctuary in which you’ll want to spend plenty of time. This lovely bed is available in Majestique…bronze-silver with dark gray highlight coloring finished with lacquer. The finish is specially designed to suit that perfect romantic haven in your home.

The Baroque Bed

The Baroque Bed

The Baroque bed, as its name implies is very florid and ornate. The posts are monstrous -especially since they’re topped with massive cast finials and sturdy feet. The headboard grill is adorned with a large center casting and supported by 60” high posts. The footboard – supported by 36” posts, is a concave design that dips in the center. There are also large sloping side rails that are as fancifully decorated as the grills. Even the Gilded Slate finish is elaborate – it is a black base, with a hand-applied coat of mottled translucent white paint – which gives it a bluish hue, highlighted with gleaming gold. This bed is certainly a statement piece and will need a large room to contain it.

The Belair Bed

The Belair Bed

Add texture to your space with the contemporary design of the Belair Platform Bed. The rich tones of the Belair’s espresso stain complement a variety of contemporary styles and colors. And the clean-cut, horizontal lines add dimension, allowing the wall color behind to show through. Easily update your style with the modern design elements of the Belair Platform Bed. It is available in twin, full, queen, king, and Cal king.

The Chester Bed

The Chester Bed

The Chester bed is an ornate design that looks like a gate. From the arches casted to the spindles, to the winding wire supporting the ribbed, rolling-pin style top rail, these grills would look at home in a garden. Even the finish has an earthy feel to it. It is called Crème Brulee, an off-white base highlighted with brown tones and scattered with crackled patches. This bed would work beautifully with many distressed light-wood pieces.

The Dunhill Bed

The Dunhill Bed

A standout among mixed media beds. Transitional styling in a sleigh design that will complement almost any décor. This bed offers class and sophistication for the formal bedroom but also warmth and serenity for a more casual atmosphere. Comfort and beauty surround you when you introduce this bed to your current lifestyle. The rich Honey Oak finished wood and soft Autumn Brown swirling scrolls are a perfect blend of light and dark, soft and dramatic. A charming, romantic addition to a master bedroom or guest room.

The Heritage Bed

The Heritage Bed

Make a statement with the shiny Black Sapphire finish, oversized round finials, and traditional lines of the Heritage bed. This bed really captures a person’s attention with a dramatic headboard and footboard consisting of tall posts and complementary spindles. The grills are topped with small castings that enhance the overall look of the bed. A horizontal rail interrupts the vertical lines to add an interesting detail to the bed. Available in full, queen and king and as a headboard only.

The Sanford Bed

The Sanford Bed

The Matte Black finish present on the Sanford is its defining characteristic to be sure. What other bed shows such a rich distillation of the option of bed as focal point or bed as background décor. The powder coat application marries texture to the surface in a way that both mutes and plays with light. Notice how the soft sheen of the finish takes a heavy steel frame and portrays it as light in weight. The 10 castings locked in place on this bed are intentionally finished in the same black powder coat to show only their silhouette and accentuate their simple nature. The height of the headboard rises to 52 and 1/8” while the posts on the footboard are 31 and ¼” tall.
