Headboards are a great way to add style and personality to your bedroom. If you’re looking to refresh your bedroom, the design of your headboard can help define the feel of the room and bring in color and texture.
This piece of furniture has a history in the bedroom as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece. Upholstered or tufted headboards gained popularity during the 17th century. During this time, the desire for comfort and coziness grew, so people began looking for “stuffed” headboards that would give them that comfortable feel.
Button-tufted headboards are a great option for a sophisticated and elegant look. They also work well with various styles depending on the shape, fabric, and style of the tufting.

We love the soft curve on the top of this blush tufted headboard. The color and shape make it a more feminine look that would be perfect in a little or teen girl’s bedroom or as a soft accent in a more traditional space.
Last year, we refreshed this guest bedroom for one of our past clients with new furniture, decor, and curtains. We love this gray tufted headboard from Target because it’s not as high as other headboards and has clean, modern lines. It’s a great price and would go with a variety of styles, including modern, Scandinavian, and transitional.
