Bedframe vs Headboard

Bedframe vs Headboard

It’s tempting for a do-it-yourselfer to attach a headboard to the wall over a metal frame bed. However, this may not be the best or most cost-effective option for your bedroom. A bed and bedroom are an oasis in your home. For many, it’s the only room of the house they can truly call their own. Finding the right bedroom furniture to create the right place to relax is essential to love your space.

Here are a few reasons why it’s important to buy the entire bed frame and not just a headboard.

  • Price

    Headboards alone can be upwards of $300 dollars; the entire package, headboard and frame can actually be easier on your pocketbook. Look at the Marshall Queen size bed. It starts at a price that’s less than a quality queen size headboard. For one price you get a nice frame that matches your headboard and the other pieces in your room. You won’t have to spend extra time and fuss trying to hide that metal bedframe under bedding.

  • Style

    You may be tempted to buy a headboard for the unique style you think it will add to your room. But beds can add style all on their own. Many come with gorgeous headboards that attach to the bed and not to your wall. The Kaitlyn Queen bed makes a statement with its oversized headboard. This can easily be the design center of your space. You can play off of a bed like this to create an entirely unique master bedroom. Plus, you have the added style that the bed frame itself brings to your space.

  • Ease

    Besides being easier on your wallet, buying the entire bed is actually easier to live with. Most headboards are going to attach to the wall above your metal frame bed. That means unsightly screw holes and some elbow grease to put together the look you are hoping for. And once you attach it to the wall, it cannot be easily moved. With the purchase of an entire bed frame, the headboard attaches to the frame itself. It can be placed in front of a window, at an angle or in the middle of the room. It can also be easily moved at any time.

  • Statement

    It’s easier to make a statement with an entire bed. Look at the Chateau King bed. Its posts, along with the headboard, can be the centerpiece of any bedroom. It makes a clear statement on style and comfort. It allows for understated bedding and accompanying furniture. A bed like this can be an anchor of design in a plain bedroom.

Just buying the headboard limits your bedroom’s potential. It limits the placement and style of your bed. It also means extra costs for bed skirts, and more ostentatious bedding in general, to camouflage the metal frame. A bed frame with headboard and footboard is often the better option for price and flexibility.
