Extra tall headboards for king beds
Most tall king headboards tend to range between 58 and 70”. Not enough for your ambitious vision? Then we bet you’ll be glad to hear that you can find extra tall king headboards too, much like this 84” bad boy.
To maintain a balanced result, though, avoid any kind of shelves or decorative elements above it.
Monochrome upholstered tall king headboard
The most versatile choice is usually a monochrome design, whether simple (especially recommended if your bedroom already has many other decorative patterns or items) or tufted (to introduce a tasteful but noticeable element).
For the best results, choose a color that will match the rest of your palette while standing out against the wall.
Elegant high headboard king bed
To inspire a majestic sense of sophistication, you could consider a simple design with some harmonious lines and a dark wood finish.
The latter is mainly recommended in large rooms as it could actually end up making smaller ones look more crowded.
Solid wood tall headboard bed
Nothing beats the combination of cozy and elegant that good old solid wood can inspire!
While this type of headboard can be a bit more of an investment, don’t forget that it will last you for a lifetime and reward you with a nostalgically grand look.
Contemporary tall king headboard
Contemporary bedrooms are some of the most popular, especially in urban apartments: if that’s yours too, look for a tall king headboard in a simple design with clean lines, streamlined shapes, and a neutral or bold monochrome finish.
While contemporary headboards shouldn’t be too decorative nor full of details, you can still add a creative twist that will give it an eye-catching vibe. For example, even though this headboard is entirely monochrome, its intricate texture creates an interesting pattern of shadows.
Tall headboard king in a panel design
Were you lowkey hoping for a majestic result that will wow you and your partner every time you walk into the bedroom?
Then consider a tall king headboard relying on a wide panel design, perhaps one that frames it, just like this fancy wooden model with metal accents.
Symmetrical tall king headboard
House of Hampton®
Here’s another idea that’s both spacious and aesthetically pleasing: a tall king headboard with an open design that creates a decorative pattern or symmetrical shapes.
While this is one of the most attention-grabbing models from an interior design point of view, keep in mind that it might not be the most comfortable to sit up against, so we only recommend it if you hardly ever read or watch TV in bed.
Open high back headboard king for smaller bedrooms
Have you already treated yourself to a king-size bed but then realized that your bedroom looks too small and cramped? While tall headboards work wonders in rooms with both low and high ceilings, they aren’t usually the wisest choice in narrow ones.
However, there’s a clever trick: choose an open design to obtain an airy and spacious feel.
With an eye catching print
If you’re not planning on adding any wall decor above your bed, then your tall king headboard can be the real star of the show!
To achieve a balanced look, consider complementing your new print design with monochrome bedding, but include at least one item (for example, some accent pillows) in its pattern’s color.
Shabby chic high headboard king bed
Kelly Clarkson Home
Remember when we advised against having a headboard in the same color as your wall? Well, shabby chic bedrooms are a popular exception.
This is because they tend to rely on a white overload, so a tall king headboard in that color and a distressed finish can easily work against white walls, too. Just be sure to prop up some pillows and cushions in a different hue against it!
However, we still think it’d look even better if you happen to have walls in a different pastel tone.
