What Kind of Fabric is Used for the Headboard?
An upholstered headboard is a great way to add a little coziness to any bedroom interior. The soft cushioning of the fabric headboard allows you to sit comfortably in bed for longer, read, on your laptop, watch TV, or even just chat with your partner. If you're in the market for a new fabric headboard, we've put together a selection guide of available fabrics so you can pick the right fabric for you.
Over time, linen headboards are often one of the easiest to maintain and, in some cases, one of the cheapest. They are available in a variety of colors and patterns depending on the headboard design you choose. They are hypoallergenic and typically don't collect dirt as quickly as other more textured fabrics.
Faux leather headboards provide a comfortable, easy-to-clean surface and are an increasingly popular choice for headboard fabrics. Faux leather is animal-friendly, can be produced in a variety of colors, and doesn't crack as easily as real leather. They're easy to maintain, more fade-resistant than standard leather, and while it may lack the odor many people love from genuine leather, it's usually much less expensive.
A leather headboard has all the advantages of any leather product. They are hypoallergenic, usually very high quality, and can be easily cleaned with just a damp cloth. They can fade, so they should be treated and polished to prolong the life of your headboard, but with proper care can make a huge long-term investment in your bedroom.
Suede is a nice middle ground between a linen headboard or a leather headboard but requires regular maintenance to stay in good condition longer. Suede looks and feels chic and stylish, soft to the touch, and available in a variety of colors and shades to suit any bedroom interior. They can collect dust and grime quickly, so be sure to perform timely maintenance to keep them looking brand new.
Chenille is a soft and stunning material that can easily make a statement in your bedroom. This textured fabric offers a uniqueness that fits most design styles and can add something special to a minimalist or Scandinavian-inspired decor. Available in a variety of colors, chenille fabrics are versatile, lightweight, soft, and beautiful - the perfect combination for a headboard.
For luxurious finishes, velvet is often considered unbeatable. The soft material combined with the way it seems to sparkle in the light has resulted in velvet being used in premium finishes for many different furniture items, and headboards are no exception. It will stand the test of time but requires a certain level of maintenance, especially if you have pets, as it can be notorious for attracting pet hair.
Velour and velvet are often confused with each other, but there are some key differences you need to consider. They are both made from different fibers and weaving techniques, velour is the "easier" of the two to make. Knit-style fabrics are softer to the touch than velvet for the most part but have the same soft drape and luxurious look.
