Still a popular choice today, a wooden headboard is a firm favourite for those who require a good quality and durable design for their bedrooms. Whether you’re trying to achieve a country-style look or complement your traditional bedroom décor, soft wood and painted headboards can give you the desired style you’re after.
Durable and sturdy, wooden headboards are a great choice for children’s and adult bedrooms alike. There are several types of wooden headboards including solid wood such as oak or walnut, softer woods like pine, and of course painted wood. Sweet Dreams, Briody and Balmoral each produce a range of wooden and solid oak headboard designs.
The Briody Benedict Zen Creme 5' Divan Headboard is made from the finest solid Euopean oak which is used to create a luxurious yet natural finish. The timeless design of this bed frame lends itself to any bedroom setting.
Soft woods are particularly malleable which allows headboard manufacturers more scope in manipulating the styles and designs in the headboard. A curved wooden design can offer a French-style chic, whereas a vertical slatted wooden headboard can promote a more contemporary look.
The Sweet Dreams Leo 5' Divan Headboard is a contemporary wooden headboard made from pine from managed forests. Featuring rounded edges on the curved top rail, this antique finish headboard comes in three sizes: small double, double and king size.
Just as important as choosing the right width of headboard to suit your single, double or king size bed is its height. A higher headboard may look good but may not provide the right comfort levels when reading in bed, whereas a lower design may be perfect for a child’s bed.
