Nothing says luxury like a custom upholstered headboard. It softens and adds character to your bedroom and with so many fabrics to choose from, you can be sure to find the perfect fabric to match your space.
When you are thinking about which headboard style to choose, think about the feeling that you want your room to have. If you want a more casual, classic look you may want a natural fabric such as linen with simple, clean lines.
If you prefer a more glamorous feeling, look for fabrics that have a bit of a sheen to them like velvet and faux silks. You can add details such as tufting, nail heads and a more curvaceous shape to add to the feminine quality. However, do not go over board! Choose one or two of the above details, but do not try to do all of them.
Before settling on a headboard, make sure to compare the fabric with your bedding. If you are not ready to purchase new bedding, look to the future, pull an entire pallet together so that you know things will fall smoothly into place when you are ready to take the next step!
Also, when it comes to care and maintenance, you might want to think about the clean-ability of your fabric. You may also want to think about adding Euro shams to your bed to create a buffer between you and the headboard. That way you do not have to worry about hair products and oil transferring onto your fabric.
In the end who doesn't want to come home to a little slice of heaven?!
