Do You Really Need a Headboard? Here Are 5 Reasons Why You Should Have One

A stylish headboard can completely transform the look and feel of a bedroom.

Historically, headboards were used as a barrier between the edge of one’s bed and the wall to prevent a person's head from getting cold at night. Houses haven't always been as well-insulated as they are today, and it was common for walls to get cold in the cooler months, which resulted in an unpleasantly cold bedroom. Nowadays, headboards serve more of a decorative purpose than anything and can help elevate the look of your bedroom, tenfold. They are also a great option for smaller rooms that can't accommodate a full bed frame.

And while they do look fantastic and can make for a stylish statement, they aren't a necessity in a room. You could hang an artwork above your bed or paint the wall to help make your room look more put together.

Below, we look at five of the main reasons why you might want to incorporate a fabulous headboard into your sleep sanctuary's design.
