Gallia. Headboard. November 01st , 2017.
Sleep is very vital to the health of every person in order to survive. It is a necessary restorative activity that helps each one of us regenerate energy. This is the reason why the bedroom is often considered as the most important place in ones home. Everybody should give their best effort to insure their bedroom is as comfortable as possible. Throughout the past and even in these modern times, the character of a bedroom depends on the likes and needs of the homeowner. The frame, mattress and coverings have always been given importance as it can make the bedroom look more beautiful but the headboard is the true king of the bedroom. When headboards are attached to the bed they become the decorative centerpiece of the entire room. Adding a headboard will surely give a sense of purpose and style to your bedroom.
A headboard is a very important piece of furniture that is connected at the head or top of the bed. A headboard holds the pillows, reinforces the bed, and it is very useful as a support mechanism for leaning and relaxing. It can also add a great deal to the decorative theme of your bedroom. Furthermore, there are other functions of headboards such as storage. Headboards are very popular even though they are not necessary for a bed to serve its purpose because of the added support and functionality they provide. Getting a bed with a good headboard can definitely add a plethora of additional conveniences.
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.
The double headboard is sometimes sold in a package as part of a bedroom set deal. This furniture set may include headboard, bed frame, dresser, mirror and chest. However people usually avail to the option of purchasing the headboard separately. These headboards are made of different kinds of materials including: fabric, wooden, metal and leather. Headboards can also be made from pewter and wrought iron. The selection of your new headboard should be done in such a way that it should suit the remaining furniture of your room as these headboards work as style statement for your entire room. The double headboards can be bought in different shapes including: arched headboards; sleek squares, sweeping curves, padded borders and rounded corners. These shapes have the ability to make your bed look more beautiful that ever. These are even available in different colors so if you own a brown bed frame or a white one; you can purchase a head board of the same color or another color. These headboards can be purchased in accordance to the color of your room. These headboards even come with shelves which help in keeping important items and decorations.
Its worth noting that all headboards will attach to any standard side rail frame, or failing that, you can purchase a headboard-only side rail bed frame that will allow easy attachment. So, as you notice the nights drawing in, and your thoughts are beginning to cuddle up on the hearth-side rug, long before that scent of fine wood smoke mingled with a hint of cinnamon and cloves has reached your nostrils, you might just want to remember my words: autumnal snuggles are available all year round, but rightfully reserved for those who own king headboards.
