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.
