If you are looking for a new place to catch some z’s, you might be considering an upholstered bed. And while some people love how they provide major comfort and style, others find them to be high-maintenance and difficult to keep clean and dust-free.
So, is an upholstered bed right for you? Read on to learn more about this luxurious piece and why it may or may not be right for you.
Do you enjoy lying in bed and catching up with your favourite TV series? If this sounds like your cup of tea, a fabric headboard would be perfect for your bedroom. Fabric headboardsare perfectly designed to provide you with a cushioned support and cultivate a cosy feeling in your bedroom. Fabric headboards allow you to lean back and enjoy your favourite TV show in the comfort of your bedroom.
Because an upholstered bed is covered in fabric, dents and impressions can develop overtime with use. We recommend that you clean an upholstered bed with a handheld vacuum once a week to keep dust at bay.
If enjoy leaning back to read in bed and lean against your headboard daily, you may also have to deal with potential grease spots. One solution is to spot clean on a regular basis, but if that sounds like too much maintenance for you, consider opting for a wooden bedroom set or metal bed frame instead.
If you, or a member of your family suffer with allergies, you might want to reconsider the option of a fabric headboard. While the standard fabric options are usually more cost-effective, if left unattended they are susceptible to dust mites. This can lead to flare ups of allergies. Keep this in mind especially if you’re considering an upholstered bed for a child’s room.
If you’re set on a fabric headboard, consider other materials such as leather, a tightly woven textile, or a “performance” fabric option. These will help keep dust from penetrating into the frame, while also giving you the look you want.
Fabric headboards are available in a range of sizes from a single bed through to a king-sized bed, this does not necessary mean that fabric headboards are the best choice for bedrooms of all sizes. If your bedroom is small and you are pressed for space, a fabric headboard might not be the best options. This is because the padding could take up valuable square footage that might be better used. If you opt to use a fabric headboard in a smaller room this might resulting the room feeling smaller than what it actually is. If, however, you are set on using an upholstered headboard, consider a lighter colour such as white or light grey to make less of a visual impact.
Upholstered bedscome in hues that are highly versatile, such as grey, cream, or blue. These colours pair beautifully with a wide range of accents, metals, and finishes.
Of course, upholstered beds are offered in more vibrant fabric colours as well if you’re one for a bold look.
