What size a single headboard?
All single bed headboards are 3ft wide as a minimum, to match the size of a single mattress. It's important that a single headboard is at least the same size as your mattress to ensure it fits properly. 3ft single headboards require a fixing hole distance of 60cm (2') for secure attachment to your bed.
Choosing the right type of single bed headboard
Our collection of single headboards features plenty of styles, materials, and colours to take your room to the next level. There is a single headboard to go with all types of bedroom décor. Choosing what type of single bed headboard is best boils down to the style you're looking for.

A soft, padded upholstered single headboard is a great choice for anyone who likes to read or watch TV in bed, ensuring you're as comfortable sitting up as you are lying down.

How do you fit a single bed headboard?
There are various options when it comes to fitting your single bed headboard:
These single headboards are full length, starting from the floor and rising beyond the top of your bed, making them a great option for a statement piece. Floor-standing single headboards are screwed into a divan base or bedframe, and they are one of the sturdiest types of headboards.
These attach to your bed frame with screws, similar to floor-standing. The only difference? They're not full length. Instead, they use struts. These are pieces of sturdy material which attach to both your bed and single headboard. Strutted single headboards are a good choice for smaller bedrooms because they take up less space.
If the head of your bed is against a wall, you can choose a wall-mounted headboard. Usually, they're attached by hooking a cleat plate, on the back of the headboard, over a cleat screwed to the wall.
