Making headboard cushions work for you and your home
We’ve already thought of the practical solutions of headboard cushions, comfort and easy to remove covers, but you might be wondering how to make headboard cushions work for you and if they’ll look good with the decor you already have.
We’ve all seen the many headboards you can buy and if you have a divan or are considering buying a divan, the best thing you can do is add a headboard, not only for comfort when sitting back but it ‘frames’ and completes the bed. However, headboard cushions add much more, they add character and bring individuality to the room. Walking in a room and seeing something unusual, something different just makes it more special.
Stylish and practical
We’ve already thought of the main things to make headboard cushions work for you and your home:
Quality fabrics and materials to create a more ‘expensive’ look
Choice of fabrics
Zip opener for removing and cleaning covers
Alternative covers/fabric when a change is required!
Unique choice of styles for a designer feel
Deciding on a pole
If you already have chrome handles on wardrobes/drawers then you might want to carry this through and go for a chrome or silver pole. However, if you have
handles or accessories like table lamps in brass then a brass or gold pole will
coordinate with the decor you already have. Alternatively, go for black as this will go with all colours. There are also some wooden poles around in various colours.
The choice is yours, consider the look you want and have a browse at the poles on offer. The Range or Dunelm have a good choice of poles.
Or look at Poles Direct for a huge choice.
Choose a pole with simple brackets and those that don’t protrude too far from the wall.
Avoid extendable poles as the diameter is slightly different on one side so the
cushions will not be level when hung.
We hope that some of the tips above will help make headboard cushions work for you and your home but if you have any questions at all or would like help/guidance on fabrics or poles please do not hesitate to email me or leave a comment and I will get back to you soon.
