Our advice Buying Guide

How wide should a headboard be for a king size bed?

A standard king size mattress is 76” W x 80” L. A headboard should naturally protrude past the edge of the mattress to make it the widest part of the bed frame. A good rule is that your headboard should be roughly 3” wider than the mattress of your bed. A standard headboard width for a king size bed is 80”, which is 4” wider than a standard king mattress. Going with these standard sizes means your headboard extends 2” wider than the mattress on either side of the bed.

While a headboard should never really be narrower than your mattress for structural support reasons, you can choose to get a custom headboard that is much wider than 80” for your king size bed if you have the space in your bedroom. An oversize headboard can act as a focal point in your home if you select an interesting headboard design that complements your bedroom decor.

Wrought iron king size headboards are ideal for traditional or Shabby chic style bedrooms, while diamond button-tufted headboards are an excellent choice for Hollywood Regency or mid-century modern spaces.

You can also use larger headboards for additional storage if you choose one that has shelving built-in, which can be useful, especially if you don’t have bedside tables.

Is a wrought iron headboard comfortable?

Wrought iron king size headboards are an elegant statement piece for your bedroom. Wrought iron headboards are not only beautifully stylish, but they also offer comfort and durability. These headboards create a visually pleasing backdrop for your pillows and comforter without jutting into your headspace because of their intricate design patterns.

Wrought iron is smooth and cool to the touch, meaning that your head can rest gently against the headboard comfortably. Instead of one solid piece, wrought iron headboards have openings in their design. This is beneficial for sleepers who move around at night and do not want to hit their hands on a completely solid headboard.

What bedroom style does a wrought iron king size headboard match?

A wrought iron king-size headboard will match a bedroom that has more of a modern appeal. The wrought iron style frame gives the bed a rustic feel and makes it a great focal point or a statement piece that works well in contemporary or industrial-style bedrooms.
