Upholstered divan headboards
At Divan Base Direct you’ll find a huge range of headboards to complement your divan base.
Headboards create a natural focal point in any bedroom, drawing the eye to your bed and making it the central feature of your room.
Headboards also have several practical benefits. They provide a physical barrier between your sleeping space and the wall behind your bed. As such, a headboard will prevent your wall from being damaged or marked. A headboard will also make it easier to sit up in bed so that you can read a book, watch television or eat breakfast.
Our headboards are manufactured using only the highest quality timber, fabrics and other materials and can be easily attached to the divan bed base of the corresponding size.
Types of divan bed headboards
When selecting a headboard, it’s important to note that there are two main types of headboard; strutted headboards and floor standing headboards.
Strutted headboards attach to the divan bed base using two struts that feature vertical slots.
The bed base will have two headboard bolts sticking out of the rear of the bed base - these are usually screwed into place by hand. The headboard is lowered so that the vertical slots in the struts pass through these bolts. The bolts are then tightened to hold the headboard in place.
Floor standing headboards
As their name suggests, floor standing headboards sit directly on the floor. They are independent from the bed base, but can also be affixed to the base in much the same way as a strutted headboard.
