    Headboards and Bedroom Furniture FAQ

    What is the Point of a Headboard?

    Bed Headboards serve two main functions. They support your bed and usually are the spot where the bed runners or bed frame attaches to hold your mattress off of the floor.

    The second function they provide is the design and feel of a space. They also provide a stopper for pillows falling off the bed, or behind the bed frame while giving you a personal touch to your bedroom.

    Bed headboards also act as bedroom furniture. Depending on the type of look and feel you are going for in your bedroom the headboard can make or break the design. Your bedroom decor and room design will definitely be affected by it

    Do you need to Attach your Headboard?

    Free-standing units do not need to be attached to the bed. However, this will mean that your mattress will either be on the floor or supported in some other way, like with a standard metal bed frame or mattress holder. You can definitely design it to go either way. Wall headboards typically attach to the wall, as opposed to free-standing headboards. These wall headboards usually do not also attach to the bed.

    As mentioned above though every headboard that Calgary Interiors makes can be completely customized for each individual user. So we can create something that goes with convention or against it.

    What is a Floor Standing Headboard?

    A free-standing or floor-standing headboard is one that does not need to attach to the wall or the bed. It can stand all on its own. This is es[especially important if your bed is not against a wall (like if it is against a window), or if your bed doesn’t attach to the headboard.

    Can I Put an Upholstered Headboard on a Platform Bed?

    A platform bed is a type of bed frame that has a thick, sturdy built-in foundation. A box spring is a type of bed base that can be placed on a bed frame.

    While both types of beds are bed bases, a platform bed is also a bed frame.

    Typically platform beds have feet or some kind of mechanism that lifts them off of the ground. These types of beds actually make great cases for headboards, and usually, you can do either a free-standing one or an attached one. Often this will also allow you to get a footboard as well that can either match the headboard exactly or complement it in some manner. A sleigh bed is a really good example.

    Platform beds are also great options when it comes to upholstered wall units. These types of beds, because they are free-standing can be pushed up against the wall without needing to be attached. This means that the wall headboard can be a little simpler to make, and more cost-effective.

    What about a Box Spring?

    If you have a box spring, you can also get a type of platform bed that will bring it off of the floor. You definitely don’t have to go that way but it can be helpful depending on the type of look that you are going for.

    At the end of the day, the design and atmosphere you are trying to create in your room will dictate a lot of the decisions that you make when it comes to choosing the look and feel of your headboard. Having said that what you have right now can be used to create what you want, you make just need a little help with the design to get it to where you want it.

    Do Headboards Work with Queen Beds and King Beds?

    Yes, most headboards can be made to work with a queen bed or a king bed. Obviously, if you are custom-making a headboard like Calgary Interiors we can make it to fit whatever bed you want.

    If you want to retrofit a headboard to a bed that is a different size we can also help you with that. Making a king bed headboard fit a queen bed is a easier than the other way around, but either way we can help you make it work.

    You may also find that do this will allow you to add some additional storage space in your bedroom but you will need to be intentional about the design of your headboard and the design of the storage space. Under-bed storage and bed frame storage can be a big benefit.
