What Your Headboard Says About You!

Oct 30, 2007
Did you know that the headboard you choose for your bed can speak volumes about who you are? Of course, many people don't think about this, especially since bedrooms are fairly private. However, if anyone does venture into your private sanctuary, they'll find a lot of information just from the decorations you've chosen for your personal space, especially in the form of your headboard.

If you have a metal headboard, you're telling people that you are sensible and no nonsense. While the actual type of metal may say something else, your choice of metal means that you are mindful of the need to decorate (otherwise, you wouldn't have a headboard in the first place), yet frugal in expenditures. A metal headboard is inexpensive compared to wooden ones, and your option to save money shows your regard for the ability to scrimp while still maintaining beautiful décor.

If the metal headboard is made of iron, you have modern taste and enjoy the harshness of the style and coloring. The unfinished look of this metalwork speaks volumes of your love of efficient and minimal decor. A wrought iron headboard also shows your love for the metalworking itself, with some of the shapes into which the iron is molded can be quite intricate and artistic, despite its minimalistic appearance.

If you have chosen a brass headboard, however, it says something totally different about you. You like the shine of the metal and the way it calls attention to itself. You've chosen metal because it is less expensive and makes more sense on a budget, but you still want a sense of fancifulness and Renaissance style decor. You like to dream of the past and perhaps don't completely approve of where the future will take you, at least in terms of design standards.

If your bed is topped with a wooden headboard, you are as classical as they come. No matter how intricate the carvings in the wood or how simple the design of the board, this tells visitors prying into your room that you want to feel important and protected. An especially large or tall wooden headboard can either mean that you feel the need to be watched over or that you have an air of superiority about yourself. It speaks to your need for extravagance and expensive taste and gives you a sense of empowerment.

Reading your headboard can be much like analyzing your handwriting in terms of determining factors of your personality. Taste in furnishings, clothes, cars - literally everything we touch - is developed by our personality so can give others clues to who we really are.

Headboards are as varied as there are people. Contemporary or Traditional, Wood, Upholstered or Metal, Headboards provide a way to set the tone in the room you spend so much time in. Whether you see yourself as a Warrior or an Earth Mother, Computer Genius or Farmer, there are Headboards that can help you express that persona. Take the time to make your bedroom your special private retreat. It will create a peaceful place to come home to.
