Headboard FAQs

Do you *need* a headboard?

While there is no rule demanding that you purchase a headboard, you should seriously consider it. Aesthetics aside, the furniture will offer support while you sleep and it acts as a barrier between the bed and the wall. You'll appreciate the lack of scuff marks, especially if you're a renter

What are some styling tips?

First things first, Ashley McNamara, home furnishing business leader for beds and mattresses at IKEA US, suggests finding a purpose for your bedroom. That will clear up any confusion about the way in which you want to decorate your sleep space.

"Do you like to read or watch tv, snack, or relax with your loved ones in bed? Or do you view the space as your private sanctuary where sleep and relaxation are the main focus," she asked. 

Once you've taken care of functionality, it's time to concern yourself with style‚ a.k.a. the fun part.

"Consider the height of your pillows compared to the height of the headboard," she added. "It’s always a great idea to add layers and textiles to your bed; it can really help ensure your bed style aligns with your personal style. Ensure there is some space between pillows and headboard so that one does not overshadow the other."

What is a floating headboard?

A floating headboard, a.k.a. hanger headboard, does not get attached to your bedframe. Instead, it's fastened to the wall behind the pillows. 

What are headboard alternatives?

If you're not quite convinced, there are headboard alternatives worth exploring. For example, you can accentuate the wall behind your bed with bright, bold peel-and-stick wallpaper, a piece of art, or a colorful tapestry
