King headboards, also called king size headboards or king bed headboards, are set to become the biggest bedroom trend this fall. I know its hard right now to fully picture that magical, autumnal time of year, but believe me; its only just around the corner, and this year, like no other before, it will pay to be ahead of the crowd. Maybe you already have a complete master bedroom furniture suite, or youre contemplating a house-move, or perhaps you just fancy adding some warmth and heart back into your existing bedroom. I can only encourage you to think big - even for a tiny bedroom.
Pharaohs in ancient Egypt had headboards made of ebony, sliver and gold. The English preferred headboards fashioned out of wood, sometimes with intricate carvings. However, it was the Greeks who created whacky and unique headboards! These headboards could of course be used for warmth while sleeping, or as support in a semi reclined position as well as a table on which they could eat their food! Here, the headboard took on the role of three pieces of furniture in one! It was during medieval times that people started realizing the dual function of headboards not only as a bed warmer but also as a valuable accessory to enhance the look of the room and prominently display the status and wealth of the owner. Thus wooden headboards with intricate carvings were high in demand for those who could afford them. Upholstered headboards also became stylish during this time for their comfort as well as the intensely luxurious feel they lent to the bedroom. Some wooden headboards form the medieval times were so strong that they can be found in an excellent condition, even today.
Changing headboards is a fun way to quickly update your bedrooms look. Headboards are made from many different materials such as leather, wrought iron, and wood just to name a few so theres no limit to the new looks you can create in your bedroom. Take a quick survey of your room and decide what look youd like to create. Do you want to freestanding headboard or would you prefer it be attached to your bed? Do you want a padded headboard or would you prefer one made of wood? Wooden headboards cater to more of a traditional feel so if youre looking for something that says classic elegance you may want to choose a charming cherry wood headboard with detailed carved designs. On the other hand, do you feel like youd like to see your bedroom take on more of a contemporary feel? Why not try a headboard made of leather to add a more modern touch to your bedroom? There are even do it yourself headboard kits available for those who want a custom design. Youre only limited by your imagination as to what you can create in a headboard.
