Why choose a king-sized headboard?
If you’ve chosen to buy a king size bed frame and mattress, it’s likely that you’ll want to look for a headboard to complete the set. There’s no better way to complete your luxurious bed than with a king size headboard to complement your look. King size headboards can be chosen as replacements or upgrade for any suitable bed with a detachable headboard.
A 5ft king size headboard is a fantastic design feature which not only looks striking but also protects the wall behind your bed. If you like to read in bed, a king headboard provides a comfortable surface to lean on, reducing neck strain. It also stops you from hitting your head on the wall when you sleep and stops your pillow from falling down the back of the bed.
What size is a king headboard?
King headboards are 5ft (80in) wide, which is the same width as king mattress, so they’re a perfect fit. There’s no standard height for king size headboards, which come in a range of heights to suit different styles and tastes. Tall headboards go behind the bed and are often much higher, making them a commanding statement for a king-sized bedroom. While short headboards attach to the bed base with poles and make for a cosier and simple look.
All of our king headboards are compatible with our king size divan beds. However, remember to check the dimensions of your headboard before purchase to ensure that it will fit with your bedroom design.
