Do you think your bedroom is missing a headboard/backrest on your double bed? Do you think your room lacks style for this reason?


If you do not have a headboard with a lot of wave and original design, you should probably continue reading this. Here you will find ideas for original headboards for a double bed. Do not miss it!

First of all, I will start by saying that a “headboard” is the element that joins the bed in the part of the head (hence its name) at first, it was designed as a way of protecting people from cold or heat while they rested . They were generally made of wood, since this material does not transmit temperatures as easily as stone or brick. They are also called “backups”.

Nowadays the headboard is an element for decorative use and not for protection as such, this is because the houses and flats are independent of the outside temperature. Our homes have heating and air conditioning, which allows us to be at a comfortable temperature inside our homes and we do not need furniture to protect us from the adversity of the weather.

The headboard then is mostly a decorative element that allows us to complement our interior design, so when choosing it we must look for a design that fits our personal style and not look for a specific utility. This allows us to have a number of ideas with which we can decorate our bedroom without the need for a “classic” backrest.

You should also know that there are beds that come with a built-in headboard, and in other cases, you should find the headboard that you like the most.

You must be clear that the size of the backrest or headboard depends entirely on the bed you have, so you should always measure your bed before going to the store. Do not forget that double beds have different measurements, which can be confusing and if you are not clear about the measurements, shopping will end up being a waste of time.

Once you have the measurements already defined, you must know what material and what type of decoration you intend to have in your room, we can always find innovative headboards that fit our style and complement our bedroom.

I have made a selection of headboards that I would like to share with you so you can get ideas and replicate them in your home. I subdivided the headboards into “classic” and “innovative”. Let’s check them out!
