How to choose your headboard with storage

In a bedroom, a headboard with storage is both decorative and functional. The following criteria will help you avoid mistakes and find the right model:

Criterion n°1 : The dimensions

If you plan to use the headboard with storage to hold a lot of stuff, choose a large model. However, if you just need a place to put your alarm clock or watch near the bed, a headboard with small storage shelves should suffice. Therefore, it is important to determine the width, height and depth of the headboard in advance so that you do not regret your choice:

The width of your headboard with storage should therefore be equal to that of your bed base (90, 120, 140, 160 or 180 cm). Of course, you can also choose a larger size to gain more storage space. The height is a point not to be neglected, because you may have to change the location of your bed. So check if the height is too high for the under-slope or even the ceiling of your house.

The depth of the niches, lockers or shelves varies according to the models. It can range from 10 to 36 cm or more. It also differs from one model to another. Some headboards with storage can accommodate large objects such as vases, large books, sheets, etc.. Others can even be used as bedside tables. It's up to you to see which one best fits your expectations.

Criterion n°2 : The material of construction

As far as headboards with storage are concerned, you can choose between 2 materials: wood (solid, MDF...) and metal. There are obviously headboards composed by wood combined with metal. If you choose the one made of wood, keep in mind that you will have to maintain it regularly and protect it by using the appropriate products.

In addition, you should know that it is imperative to protect the headboard with metal storage from rust. This material must also be maintained regularly with less aggressive products. Also, be aware that your head may accidentally bump into a metal headboard with storage. So be careful and avoid installing this type of material on a child's bed.

Criterion n°3 : The number of storage units

Choosing a headboard with lots of niches is a good idea if you want to save space in your bedroom or hide as many items as possible (books, small flower pots, travel souvenirs, etc.). Headboards with multiple storage units can also put an end to the clutter in your bedroom. Thus, the most practical is to choose the headboard that offers at least 2 storage units.

Criterion n°4 : The fastenings

Presumably all headboards with storage are generally designed to be attached to the box spring. However, the floor-standing models are much more robust. While those intended to be attached to the walls are more decorative and much less bulky. In any case, you should choose the one that best suits your taste as well as the decoration of your room.

Criterion n°5 : The style

To harmonize your headboard with storage with the rest of your room, choose a style that best suits a room. You're bound to find the one that fits it thanks to the multitudes of models that exist on the market. The gray or black ones usually fit in any room. You can also mix styles to create an original atmosphere that is unique to you. The style is mostly a matter of personal taste.

How do I clean a headboard with storage?

Because we tend to lean against the headboard with storage, it can easily become stained. Therefore, it needs to be cleaned regularly. The following techniques can help.


Headboard with wood storage

For headboards with wood storage,you will need a damp microfiber cloth to remove dirt. However, you don't want the water to stay on the wood, so you need to wipe it with another dry microfiber cloth right away.

As far as dusting is concerned, this step should be done regularly. A simple wipe down with a microfiber cloth each morning will do the trick. If your headboard with storage has sticky residue, put a few drops of liquid soap on the microfiber cloth and test it on a small area of the furniture, to make sure the finish doesn't come off. If this is suitable for your furniture, place a few drops of liquid soap in a bowl of water and work gently to remove any unwanted stains.

Depending on the quality of your headboard with wooden storage,you can apply wax to give it more shine and keep its shine as well. Spread a semi-solid, silicone-free wax paste on its surface. Leave the wax paste on for a few minutes and take a clean microfiber cloth to polish it. However, avoid spray waxes to avoid leaving residue on your furniture.

Headboard with metal storage

Headboards with metal storage are generally easy to clean. In fact, you just need to wipe it regularly with a damp cloth. When the metal has oil stains or is dirtier, you can wash it. To do this, you need to mix liquid dish soap in warm water. Soak the cloth in the sponge, then wring it out before using it to remove the dirt. Clean up any remaining water spots with a cloth or paper towel.


You can also opt to clean with a metal cleaner. But you need to check the product's label to make sure it's for the type of metal you're cleaning. You should also check the label on the headboard with storage. Some metal finishes should not be cleaned with commercial cleaners.

Headboard with storage or bedside table?

Headboard with storage

A headboard with storage stays against the wall. It helps to decorate the bed and adds an aesthetic touch to your room. This furniture also protects your wall. Thanks to its presence, your body will no longer be in contact with the paint or wallpaper, which always guarantees their cleanliness. But the biggest advantage of this side furniture, remains its ability to limit the mess and clutter in a room, because it can accommodate many objects. In addition, some models can even replace bedside tables. Nevertheless, it is often impossible to lean on it comfortably unlike the classic headboard models. Its maintenance is also more complicated than that of a bedside table. In addition, it is generally more difficult to move.

Bedside table

The bedside table or night table is an essential piece of furniture in a bedroom. It allows you to keep your things within reach. You can display them on it or hide them in its drawers to avoid clutter. One of the interesting features of this piece of furniture is that it makes it easy to grab the items that are on it. It fits in the corner of your bed and can be the same height as your bed. This small chest of drawers is usually sturdy and capable of holding a heavy load. Because it can have up to 3 drawers and has a large depth, its capacity is very satisfactory. But it cannot compete with a headboard with storage.


These two types of furniture are all essential for placing or displaying your items to keep your bedroom in order at all times. However, a headboard with storage is very practical, as it has more storage capacity. In addition, some models may already include small bedside tables to offer you more convenience.

Why buy a headboard with storage?

For functionality

Functionality is one of the great advantages of a headboard with storage. All its models are indeed versatile. You can use it to put your books for your nightly reading. You can even use it to keep your personal belongings close by or charge your phone near the bed without needing a nightstand.

If you prefer to read or surf the internet on your phone or watch videos on your tablet before bed. A headboard with storage can bring you more comfort during this time. Indeed, it prevents you from slumping directly against the wall. In addition, it can also help you keep a good posture.

For more style in the bedroom

It is more than obvious that a headboard with storage presents more elegance in your room. It is practical for decorating small rooms. For a room that looks bigger, it will be useful to complete the more empty look.

To cover small imperfections on the wall
