Buying Guide

When considering the types of bed accessories you need, a good choice is always a bookshelf headboard. King-sized beds, especially, have so much space that you can easily fit a whole library of favorite books in a headboard - and then you’ll have them if you want them right before you go to bed!

While a good bookshelf headboard is definitely our favorite, there are many other types of headboards. Your options include tufted headboards, upholstered headboards, panel headboards, slatted headboards, and various types of open headboards (such as wrought-iron curled headboards). There’s a headboard to match every style—and each headboard should have types that fit twin, full, queen, and king-sized beds.

The size of your king size bookshelf headboard should be as wide as the mattress, or two to four inches wider to allow space for fitting. The standard king size bed is 76 inches wide and 80 inches long, therefore a king size headboard should be around 80 inches wide.

The standard height of a bookshelf headboard can vary between 14 to 58 inches, depending on the height of the bed and bedroom. There are no rules regarding the height of your headboard, however we suggest keeping it shorter than the length of the bed, to keep it proportionate. Tall headboards are commonly used for king size beds and look best in rooms with high ceilings, making a striking statement centrepiece. Alternatively, a low headboard can make a smaller room look spacious. This is also a great option if you want to hang artwork or a mirror above your bed.
