One of the most appealing features of metal headboards is that they complement most room styles and aesthetics. These headboards come in various colours including ivory, bronze, black nikel and nikel meaning you’re sure to find a shade that works well in your bedroom.
These will fit seamlessly into most bedrooms but will best suit rooms with a modern, airy feel. Small bedrooms can benefit from light coloured headboards such as the onslow which features a curved design with shell finishes in an ivory colour, giving a nautical feel.
If you want a more rustic look or are planning a grand aesthetic in your bedroom, a headboard made from black nickel metal will act as a great centrepiece. Round finials and a railed design make the hugo headboard a real statement piece.
It’s hard to imagine how a metal headboard could look elegant and delicate, but the bronze Gladstone with its ornate scroll design and finials will add an air of regality to any room.
For the ultimate romantic look, a nickel-plated headboard with crystal style finials will add a true wow factor to your boudoir. The light reflected from the crystals will create a stunning effect in your bedroom and you’ll go to bed each night feeling like you’re in a palace.
The most important thing to think about when choosing whether a headboard made from metal is the right decision for you is which type of bed you have. All the headboards available in metal from Dreams are compatible with Dreams divan bases.
Secondly, you will want to consider the height of the headboard. If you have a room with a feature wall or artwork, you’ll need to ensure the headboard doesn’t come up too high to cover it. On the other hand, if you have very high ceilings, you’ll want to ensure that your headboard doesn’t look too small in the room.
The other thing you must consider is the size of your bed. You will need to choose a headboard in a size that corresponds to your bed base. For instance, metal headboards in king size are only compatible with king size divan bases (this is also known as queen size). Other sizes include single and double.
Your metal headboard will come with two prongs with struts which will align with screws in the divan base.
One of the best things about having a headboard made from metal is that they are so low maintenance. Wipe clean, durable and versatile, this style can be used in bedrooms for people of all ages, so they last an extremely long time.
Regularly dusting your headboard with a clean cloth should keep it fresh. However, if you want to make it extra shiny, wipe with a mild soap and water solution on a damp cloth. Rinse with clean water to get rid of any soap spots and then finish with your usually dry polishing cloth.
Be careful not to use any products that contain bleach or strong acids as these could damage the colour of the metal or compromise the strength of the material.
