From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A wooden headboard

The headboard is a piece of furniture that attaches to the head of a bed. Its most basic function is to retain the pillow(s) and other bed linens. A headboard may be strictly utilitarian, but frequently has aesthetic value and may be a decorative focus for a bedroom.

A headboard may also be utilized to provide a wide variety of other functions, such as providing simple storage, various comfort conveniences (such as sitting up to read or watch television), or incorporation into the critical care functions of a hospital bed.

It may often, but not always, be complemented by a spragging board at the foot of the bed; again with a function to retain the bed linen or extend the decorative function of the headboard but also to provide the occupant(s) purchase for the feet.

Headboards are made of different materials such as wood and/or metal. Different types of styles are applied to the creation of headboards. You can find detailed craftsmanship such as a wooden headboard with wrought iron designs.
