A canopy style may also be made from any of a variety of materials. Posts emerge from each side of the headboard reaching an overhead frame that extends to the foot of the bed where it connects to an identical pair of posts. Ruffled cloth draping is used to enclose the framework.
Panel styling, on the other hand, is strictly a wooden affair (or a facsimile thereof), providing a horizontally-arranged rustic juxtaposition of multiple like-sized panels brush-finished to highlight their natural wood grain, which is sometimes raised for texture. Another primary example of a wooden design is the bookcase headboard. Just as the name suggests, it features shelves and nooks that are fully functional. A popular convenience, it combines practical storage with easy accessibility for those that read in bed.
Meanwhile, a softer ambience can be achieved with a headboard upholstered in fabric. Naturally, it’s the most comfortable for those that rest their head on, or sit up against, for better positioning when TV or phone gazing. It’s a cushioned surface, covered with any one of a number of fabric types. The use of linen, velvet, suede, or cotton establishes a specific look and is often accented by button or faux-diamond tufting or nail-head trim.
Each of the styles has something else in common – they come in a countless variety of shapes and sizes. Squared, rounded, arched, over-sized – each make a statement specific to your personal taste. Plus with countless color, style and accent options, a reasonable investment of time will likely result in the perfect ideal. That’s good for you, your comfort, and your room’s décor!
