Buying Guide for Headboards

A headboard is not only practical, but it can also help unify the theme of your bedroom and serve as an interesting focal point for the space. Choosing the right headboard for your bed will depend on several factors, including the type of bed you have, your taste, and the style of your existing bedroom furniture. Here are just a few of the popular headboard styles that you'll find at west elm.

Wooden Headboards

The wooden headboard is a classic choice that goes well with any bedroom decor. We offer wooden ones in a variety of stains and finishes. They are also available in a variety of styles, from low-profile designs to intricate lattice-style cutouts.

Modern Headboards

Modern headboards instantly update the entire look of any bedroom. Choose from a range of sleek contemporary styles, including tall, leather and modern grid-tufted headboards.

Upholstered Headboards

An upholstered headboard will instantly make your bedroom look cozier and more luxurious. Most upholstered designs are rectangular, but one of our offerings features a modern curved shape. Choose a tufted or quilted upholstery headboard for a look that's classic and soft, or go with a nailhead trim headboard to add a modern European touch to your bedroom. Finish the look of your bed with a few plush throw pillows in visually-interesting colors and prints.

Whether you're looking for a simple headboard with clean lines or an upholstered headboard with visually interesting details, you'll find just the right piece in our collection to complement the existing furniture and decor in your bedroom. Browse our collection of wooden, upholstered and modern headboards to find the right one for your needs and taste.
