A headboard is defined as a piece of furniture that is attached to the head of a bed. Traditionally a headboard was used to isolate the sleeper from drafts and cold walls. The headboard would leave space between the bed and the wall and allow the cold air to sink to the floor. If the bed was pushed against the wall then the cold air would settle on the bed making the sleeper uncomfortable. Headboards were made out of wood because wood becomes less cold than bricks or stones. Humanity has made tremendous progress over the years and the improvements in architecture have made the traditional function of a headboard redundant. Still headboard beds are very popular and in this article we will find out more about modern headboards and what the advantages of a headboard bed are.
Your choice of modern or traditional headboard will greatly depend on the design of your bed and the rest of the furniture pieces, interior structure finishes and accessories inside the bedroom. If you have a traditional bed with elaborate carvings made of solid mahogany wood, then a conventional design with similar carvings and tall height that can compensate for the massiveness of traditional masculine beds will be the wisest choice.
An example of style is the sleigh bed, where the board curves backwards in the semblance of a typical Father Christmas sleigh both at the top and at the end of the bed. The footboard is often ignored in such discussions, yet it too has a part to play in the overall design of a bed. Others styles come in form of paneled wooden boards, wrought iron and a combination of the two.
Headboards for children come in any materials and types and mostly come with storage space. Manufacturers usually design them with original shapes and patterns such as football or floral designs to encourage kids to sleep in their own beds.
