Buying Guide

For people who love reading in bed or watching a little video on a tablet or reader, or even for those who have a large size screen across the room, a king-sized bookcase headboard makes a place to keep all those little things in good order.

A good bookcase headboard will have a smooth area where pillows can be leaned, and sometimes even sliding doors behind where private items can be stashed. Some headboards are even situated in such a way that you can keep a small night light or a scent diffuser in them, creating a homey space where you can easily rest.

With a King-Sized Bed

If you have a king-sized bed, then it is only logical that you should have a headboard that matches the size of the bed. The wide expanse of the headboard makes it easy for you and your nearest and dearest to each have a space for your reading material, directed reading light, headphones, or other items that help make it easier to share space. You can even flank your sleeping set up with matching bedside tables that can hold those vital items, such as a glass of water, your glasses or an eyeshade if your partner is a nighttime reader and you are not.

With a king-sized captain’s bed for increased storage

An especially delightful arrangement with a king-sized headboard is to team it with a king-sized captain’s bed, with storage under and at the foot of the bed. Pull-out drawers allow you to keep things under the bed without worrying about what is happening to them under there. By matching the finish on the drawer fronts with your headboard, you can develop a cohesive room design without taking up more floor space.

With a Twin Bed

Place a twin bed lengthwise against a king-sized headboard to create an instant daybed that has plenty of storage. Perfect for dorm rooms or for teens, it helps create a sense of spaciousness. It also assists youngsters with being able to keep their items in order in a location that belongs specifically to the youth. This can go a long way toward keeping peace in a room shared by siblings. It can also be used in a bed/sitting room, allowing the daytime use of the twin bed as a couch.

With a Dresser or Table

King-sized bookcase headboards could even be used in conjunction with a dresser or tabletop if the bed is not compatible with a headboard or already has one. By incorporating a second headboard into a room, you have a ready-made bookshelf that is easy to install – and that is good news if you are dealing with a rental or any situation where you might be asked to move every year or so.

Most people will use their headboards as intended – at the head of a bed. But that doesn’t mean that you have to use yours in that way. The key part is “bookcase” for any bibliophile, and placing it only requires a bit of vision.
