Have you recently visited a Valdosta mattress store and purchased a new bed? Now that you have the perfect new mattress and foundation, you’re almost done. The last thing you need to complete the set is the perfect headboard. When it comes to putting together the perfect bedroom, the bed you buy from our furniture store in Valdosta is likely to be the focal point around which the rest of the room’s décor will be focused. Just as there are many different types of mattresses and foundations, so, too, are there many different styles of headboard from which to choose.

Start with the Décor in Your Bedroom

Unless you plan to completely redecorate your bedroom, you’ll need to take the current décor in your bedroom into account when shopping for a new headboard in our furniture store in Valdosta. Consider the different materials in your search:

  • Real Wood – If you are one of those people who like to redecorate your bedroom on a regular basis, a wood headboard might be your best choice. In their natural color, most woods tend to fit in with any décor. Also, wood is easy to paint if you decide that your headboard needs to be redecorated along with the rest of your bedroom.


  • All Metal – Metal headboards have long been one of the more popular choices as they come in a virtually unlimited range of styles including urban, modern, antique, country, and even minimalist. Nothing looks better than an old-fashioned brass headboard, even if it is brand new… unless you prefer a more modern look in silver, black, or nickel.


  • Covered in Upholstery – If you like a soft headboard with plenty of style, upholstery might be the only way to go. An upholstered headboard can add a touch of warmth, style, and comfort to your bedroom. You can even have your headboard customized to meet your personal tastes and style.

How Functional Does Your New Headboard Need to Be

Besides helping to add to the décor of your bedroom, what other function will your new headboard be required to perform? Do you need a bookcase headboard for added storage or for a few of your knick-knacks? Maybe you need one that you can lean back on while you are reading a book.  Keep in mind that function is often more important than form.

Attached or Not

Do you want a headboard that has to be mounted on the wall or one that attaches to your bed’s foundation? If you choose a wall-mounted model, moving the bed around is going to be challenging. One that is mounted to the foundation tends to help hold the pillows and sheets in place better.

How High is Your Ceiling?

The last thing to think about before you come into our furniture store in Valdosta in search of a headboard is the height of your ceiling. If you have a tall ceiling, you can go with a taller headboard; if not, you may be better off with a shorter model.
