Buying Guide

To install a wall mount headboard, you must:

  • Measure both the distance between its hooks and that between the hooks and your floor
  • Find your wall studs (unless you’re 100% positive that your wall material will be strong enough to support the weight of your wall mount headboard)
  • Install your fittings at the correct distance (matching that of the headboard’s fitting)
  • Hang your new headboard

There are no fixed rules on how big your wall mount headboard should be. Nevertheless, if you don’t want to avoid an awkward fit, the size of your wall mount headboard should primarily depend on the size of your bed and mattress.

Ideally, a wall mount headboard should be as wide or up to four inches wider than the bed frame. As far as height goes, the recommended height depends on mattress size.

If you have a twin-sized mattress, the headboard can be 14 inches above it. For the full and queen mattresses, 28 inches above the mattress should suffice. For the King and California King mattresses, you want the headboard extending 58 inches high. Note that this refers to the size of the headboard seen. The headboard’s actual size may be much larger.

It all comes down to maintaining proportions. You probably do not want a headboard that’s taller than the length of the bed.
