Modern Timeless Buttonless Tufted Upholstery Headboard

Modern Timeless Buttonless Tufted Upholstery Headboard

Three Posts™

$124.99 $173.99

Designer Advice:

Some tufted headboards have the dimpled upholstery that's signature to traditional-style button-upholstered headboards. But they add a modern cleanness by leaving off the buttons and opting for open gaps. And altering how you attach an upholstered headboard gives you major versatility for bedrooms where you rearrange and might not always have access to a certain install method.

Buying Guide

Tufted headboards with wooden frames aren’t just durable, but they also excel at giving bedrooms an element of sophistication and elegance. Covered with soft fabrics like velvet, linen, and microfiber, they’re heavily padded to offer a room luxurious detailing. If the pad is made of premium quality, then a tufted headboard will definitely be comfortable and convenient for you to lean against as you read your favorite book before taking a good night’s rest.

If you’re thinking of giving your bedroom a statement piece, then keep on reading as we’ll help you pick the headboard that is guaranteed to complete your bedroom’s interior design.

Tufted headboards with wooden framing offer different installation options. Some require mounting to a wall, while others have to be mounted onto your bed frame. The last option is freestanding, which requires no installation at all!

  • Wall-Mounted - The wall-mounted type requires you to drill into a flat surface, but it’s sure to be compatible with all types of bed frames. The process of mounting this type of headboard is pretty simple. All you need is a stud finder, level, drill, and, of course, a trusty old tape measure.
  • Bed Frame-Mounted - Once a bed frame-mounted headboard is screwed into place properly, you will be able to have a bed set up that’s stand-alone and all-in-one. As you are purchasing the headboard separately from the bed, you must first check if your bed’s frame has the compatible brackets with the headboard that you’ll be getting. If it does not, then you need to use adapter plates in order to secure and align the bolts properly. As you may have realized, this option is tricky and it requires 2-3 people to get the parts lined up properly.
  • Freestanding - The last but definitely not the least is the freestanding type. It comes without any pre-drilled holes or attachment hardware. It is always sold separately as well, and it can be 2 or 3-dimensional. This option gives the most flexibility as it can be mounted to a wall, to a bed frame or you can let it stand on its legs, resting between a wall and your bed without the need for mounting just like storage headboards and bookcases.

Your mattress’s size will dictate the appropriate size for your headboard. Lots of headboards are purposely made to extend wider than mattresses. If your room is rather small, then you definitely need to get the exact dimensions so as not to overwhelm the space. If you have the luxury of space, then your only concern will be if the headboard you’ve chosen fits your budget or not.

As for the height, headboards come in various lengths, so pick the one that's best for your bedroom. The height of the headboard has an impact on the statement that it will make. If you want an impressive, bold headboard that can anchor the room, choose one that’s tall. What usually looks good is a headboard that is wider than the bed as it creates some sense of balance in a room.
