How a Tall Headboard Can Give Your Bedroom Serious Style Points

If you believe that the best furniture is made to be seen, we hear you. And any home design enthusiast knows that a killer headboard can make all the difference in the bedroom. To flatter your coziest spot in the house, we’ve crafted some of our finest platform beds with tall headboards that are beautifully stitched and upholstered to add a little extra drama to your aesthetic. And who doesn’t love that?

How tall is a “tall” headboard?

From top to bottom, a tall headboard should be over 50 inches high to offer you plenty of extra wiggle room for a thicker mattress or lots of accent pillows. And in addition to their sizeable statures, our designs feature a layer of foam padding, offering an even comfier spot for working, reading or relaxing.

“My favorite thing about this bed is the tufted/padded headboard which provides comfort while reading or watching tv. I also love that the platform style brings a modern, classy look to our space. It really is both practical and pretty!” - @cottagestyle

“I chose the Annette bed frame...because it adds to the overall calming color scheme I’ve chosen for my bedroom. The grey not only seamlessly connects the white room to the black accent wall, but it’s also the perfect counterpart to the soft mauves, pinks, and blues that I’ve used to decorate around the room.” - @houseonasugarhill
