Rustic Low Headboard Queen Bed

$274.99 $349.99

Designer Advice:

This bed would look great paired with honey-toned furniture like a bedside table or a nearby dresser. In terms of colors, neutrals will always match well and create a welcoming feel. However, for something with an edge, electric blue would make a striking contrast and still fit in with the bed due to the darker wood grain knots.

Diamante Queen Bed with Low Headboard 

Diamante Queen Bed with Low Headboard 

This bed has an engineered wood frame and is available in beige, blue, gray, or pink. Upholstered in a velvet style polyester blend, with the headboard filled with foam for extra comfort, it features chic and sophisticated diamante stud detail.

Designer Advice:

An ideal option for a glam bedroom, this Queen bed is full of grandiose flair without looking tacky. We recommend the blush pink finish if you want a feminine bedroom or the gray for a more neutral touch. Finish the look with a subtle shimmery throw over your comforter. This small detail will complement the diamante studs perfectly.

Wave Short Headboard Queen Bed

Wave Short Headboard Queen Bed

Ultra-modern, this bed is guaranteed to add a cool edge to your bedroom. Its wavelike design also includes LED lights for an added touch. The frame is made of solid and manufactured wood and is upholstered in PU leather with a black finish.

Designer Advice:

The futuristic look of this bed would look great with typical contemporary colors like white and gray. Stark-white walls would contribute to the futuristic look, whereas gray will lend your bedroom a refined urban vibe. Plus, the LED lights will allow you to set the mood depending on whether you're relaxing, studying, or getting ready for bed.

Rolled Low Headboard Bed

Rolled Low Headboard Bed

This bed is sleek and smart, featuring a unique and smooth sleigh shape. It is accented with large stripes of silver that are made from metallic-finished steel for a subtle industrial look. The frame is manufactured of wood and upholstered in PU leather.

Designer Advice:

This bed is an excellent choice for modern minimalist bedrooms. Depending on which finish you choose, you'll need to decorate differently. If you go for white or black, a white shag rug under your bed will look super glam. For the black-and-white option, make sure you have enough of each color in your bedroom to prevent a mismatched look.

Geometric Short Queen Headboard

Geometric Short Queen Headboard

This headboard features a matte black finish. Made of manufactured wood, its thin, open-frame design is contemporary and elegant. The long and narrow rectangular shape gives it an ultra-modern geometric look. The metal bar width is 1.5 inches.

Designer Advice:

This headboard will make the space around it appear larger due to its ultra-slim design, making it a perfect choice for studio apartments or small bedrooms. However, it may not be the most comfortable option due to the open aspect, so you might want to add some extra cushions. Match it with white or light gray bedding for a classic look.

Buying Guide

The best height for a headboard is anywhere around 20 inches tall above the top of the mattress. A low headboard is the best option for those who want to hang artwork, photos, and other wall decors above their bed. On top of that, it can make a bedroom appear more spacious. If you’re not sure which height will suit you best, consider purchasing an adjustable headboard.

A low-headboard queen bed is very comfortable—but you do have to know how to use it in the right way. If you like sitting up in bed and reading a lot, it might be a good idea to invest in a large reading pillow to prop yourself up against. Otherwise, a low-headboard bed is no less comfortable than any other—and certainly looks minimal, modern, and chic in the bargain.

If you’d like to create the illusion of a higher headboard behind a low headboard queen bed, there’s no better strategy than to paint a large square or arch behind your bed, or to place a tapestry or large piece of art just above the low headboard.

As another strategy, you could place your low headboard bed in front of a window, and then place dramatic curtains on either side.
