Generally, headboards are broken down into three categories: free-standing, wall-mounted, and frame-mounted. Within each group, you will find a variety of materials, designs, and sizes. This list will help you narrow your options.
Wall-mounted designs like the Barn Walls Rustic Mix and the Vant Wall Mounted Panels have a flat back to attach securely to a wall with flush-mount brackets. Once in place, you simply push the bed up against the wall to create a cohesive look. In many cases, you can connect additional boards to make the design as tall or wide as you want.
If you prefer to fasten your bed frame directly to a headboard, you'll need a frame-mounted design like the Sauder Orchard Hills Bookcase headboard.
Free-standing models like the Modway Lily and the Zinus Jessica Modern Studio give you the flexibility of securing the headboard to a wall or letting it stand on its own. However, the Zinus Jessica Modern Studio leaves a gap if used with a mattress lower than 8 inches.
