Fashionable and Stylish: Selecting the Right Fabric Upholstered Bedhead

A bedhead is a piece of furniture that is attached to the head of your bed. Traditionally, they were made from wood, but most of them are upholstered with fabric for aesthetic value. Some bedheads play the function of supporting your back when you are leaning on the bed or keeping the pillows from falling off the bed. Bedheads can influence the overall look of your bedroom. As such, whether you want your bedhead for functional or ornamental purposes, you need to buy a bedhead that adds a touch of elegance and style to your bedroom. Below are some areas to focus on when selecting a fabric upholstered bedhead for your bed.

The Level of Padding

Bedheads come with different levels of padding. The more the padding, the more the comfort and the higher the price. If you are going to lean on the bedhead of your bed a lot, you want a bedhead with a substantial amount of padding because they are more comfortable. Notably, if your bedhead is merely ornamental, there is no need for you to invest in an expensive bedhead.

The Type of Fabric

Nearly all fabric upholstered bedheads are stylish. However, the kind of fabric will either enhance or destroy the level of elegance in your room. Buy the type of fabric that complements all the furnishings in your bedroom, including the furniture. Fabrics such as velvet, chenille and polyester are preferred for a soft, comfortable and elegant look. However, if you are after a tightly woven bedhead, then cotton or linen is the best type of linen to select.

The Colour

Every piece of furniture in any room should work in harmony with the rest of the furniture. Therefore, when you are selecting your bedhead, make sure that you select a colour that is in sync with the rest of the furniture in the bedroom. A simple mistake in choosing the right colour could end up destroying the aesthetic value of your bedroom. 

Better Safe Than Sorry

Keep in mind the size of the bed that you want to install the bedhead. To an extent, the size of your bed should dictate every decision that you will make concerning the type of upholstered bedhead to buy. The bedhead should not be too small for the bed. Measure the size of your bed before going shopping. However, if for some reason you are not aware of the bed size, you rather buy a large bedhead than a small one. If you are after an artistic touch in your room, a large bedhead will work for you.
