Headboard cushion, As a rule, I’ve always avoided headboards in my bedrooms. Having grown up on a four-post canopy bed, having a formal bed with a headboard seemed a little ancient. And thanks to a metal platform, you can have the same lift and support for a fraction of the cost. Last month, however, I had a design epiphany. I was staying at MacArthur Place in Sonoma on a socially distant work trip when I fell in love with the headboard in my room.
To be clear, this was no ordinary headboard. Two huge bouclé pillows were affixed to the bed’s cloth-covered back for the headboard. I don’t just enamour with this emerging bedroom theme. The upholstery buyer at Anthropologie, Peri Tucker, notes that “a trend we’ve been seeing pick up over the past several seasons is removable headboard cushions on beds.” Wood, brass, and leather combine to create a statement in the bedroom, and we see a lot of interest from customers in this style.
Cushions for headboards strike the ideal blend between aesthetics and functionality. These pillows will help you feel more at ease. (We’ve all been there, admit it.) They also have a surprise touch that makes your bed look and feels even more luxurious. In addition, as Tucker points out, you have complete creative control over the design of your headboard pillows.
It’s easy to change the aesthetic of your space by simply changing out the cushions,” Tucker says. You may play with different textures and patterns with a few interesting pillows. It’s also a great way to give your bedding a new look at a low cost!” For the first time in a long time, I’m considering adding a headboard and a few pillows to my bed.

Every movement can create squeaking, rattling, and movement, which can be irritating, inconvenient, and even disrupt your sleep. Fortunately, these minor inconveniences can be quickly remedied. We’ve compiled a list of fixes for shaky headboards, old and modern, to make your life easier.
Tighten Bolts if Possible
If your headboard is wobbling, the first thing you should do is tighten the screws. Pull your bed away from the wall and tighten all of the screws and bolts that you can see to get the job done. With time and movement loosening the screws, a swaying headboard may frequently be fixed quickly and easily by tightening the screws.
Thread-Locking Adhesive Can Be Used To Secure Loose Bolts In Place
Installing a thread-locking adhesive on the bolts will keep them from coming free again if tightening the bolts doesn’t seem to be working. When moving or replacing your headboard, it is feasible to break through this glue, but it will keep your furniture in place while you do so. Loosen the bolts a little and apply the adhesive before retightening.
Make A Purchase Of A Headboard Or New Bolts And Struts
If your headboard’s struts or bolts appear to be deteriorating, it may be time for a new headboard. With our wide selection of high-quality headboard accessories, you’ll be able to replace or repair any worn-out parts with ease. It is also simple to install new struts and bolts, as long as you screw them onto your headboard and bed foundation as needed. If you’re unsure how to do this, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Add Rubber or Felt Protectors
In addition to protecting the walls from damage caused by a wobbly headboard, rubber stops or felt protectors can provide all the support needed to reduce or completely halt the wobbling. Adding shock-absorbing rubber bumpers and felt pads to your vehicle is a simple and affordable modification. Most come with peel-back adhesive stickers. Squeaking, rattling, and banging can be minimized by minimizing the amount of movement in the system.
Using Felt Pads or Rubber Covers, secure the bed frame.
The bedframe may be causing the swaying rather than the headboard. For floor-standing headboards, if you have wood or laminate flooring in your bedroom, the bedframe can move about without you noticing, contributing to the headboard feeling shaky. Furniture pads or rubber leg covers, depending on the type of bed frame you have, can limit movement and avoid the headboard wobbling in all scenarios, even if the bed has been sitting on the carpet for some time.
Change Up Your Fixing Approaches
If struts aren’t holding your headboard in place, you may want to attempt a different fixing method. You can secure your existing headboard to the wall or buy a new one that is free-standing or fixed to the wall, but this is by far the best choice for eliminating headboard movement. One of the simplest ways to attach a headboard while still making it easy to remove if necessary is to use flexes.
You have to mark the drill locations and measure where you want your headboard to go on the wall. Then, suspend the bed using two cleats, one attached to the wall and one to the headboard’s back. It is a great technique to hang higher headboards since it provides an extra measure of stability to keep them from falling over.
Just as our bedframes can need replacing from time to time, headboards may benefit from a refresh or replacement too. We hope our guide has given you some helpful advice for those of you who feel that your headboard is wobbling even though our headboards are made of the best quality materials.
