Making Family Memories in Your Dallas Home With a Custom Bed and Headboard
A Dallas bedroom is more than just a place to sleep. It’s a warm refuge on the chilliest winter nights when temperatures dip. It’s where you can shut the door and curl up with a good book with a cat on your chest or a big dog at the foot of the bed. It’s where your children seek shelter from the Bogeyman, where your kids and pets wake you up early on lazy weekend mornings, and often enough, your bed is where the whole family settles in for story time or binge-watching the programs you all love.
A custom bed or a custom headboard for a Dallas home that enhances the comfort of your sleep and supports you when you and the family is relaxing is one of the best pieces of furniture you can invest in. People and beds come in all shapes and sizes, so whether you’re choosing a bed or headboard for a master bedroom, kids room, or guest room, customizing your bedroom furniture will ensure that everything is the perfect fit.
Why Choose a Custom Headboard for a Dallas Home?
Custom furniture is the best choice for any room of the home whether it is a dining room, living room, or office. Custom furniture can match the room size and shape, your physical needs, and what’ll you’ll be using it for. These factors are especially important in the bedroom, as customizing your furniture there will be key to being able to relax in your bedroom during both your waking and sleeping hours. You’ll of course want to consider the room’s size and shape when choosing a bed and headboard for any bedroom in your Dallas home, but you’ll also want to consider the following:
Ceiling Height: Vaulted ceilings can make low level platform beds and beds with shorter headboards look smaller. If you’re choosing a headboard for one of these rooms, look for something solid with visual weight to balance out the open space above it.
Windows and Lighting: In rooms where there is only one window or the wall with the window is the only place you can place a bed, a platform bed with a low headboard can help visually open up the room.
Use of the Room: A child’s room is their own unique place in the home. It’s important to leave enough space for the child to play with their toys, or for if they have friends over. Durability of the bed is also important as it needs to survive rambunctious play. In guest bedrooms, space outside the bed is less of a concern and traveling adults will appreciate the extra sleeping space of a queen or even king size bed.
Custom headboards and beds are the best way to fulfill the needs of style, function, and comfort in a bedroom. Headboards and beds bought in standard sizes and designs seldom offer the flexibility to make the best use of bedroom space. For example, it can be tough to find a California King platform bed with a low enough headboard that doesn’t obstruct the window. However, if a custom bed or its headboard can be built to your specifications then you can have the best of both worlds, sprawling out on your spacious bed in unblocked light. It also doesn’t hurt that custom beds are built to a higher standard and with greater attention to detail, so your headboard will be both functional and beautiful.
Choosing Beds and Custom Headboards in Dallas That Match Any Style
A bed and headboard should be of high quality regardless of whose bedroom it is. Bedroom furniture built from plywood or manufactured wood and covered with veneer isn’t going to look good for very long since scratches and other wear and tear will show up quickly, with no good way to repair them. There can also be a safety concern, as the fasteners that hold the bed together can pull free of manufactured wood easily, and this can leave the front of the bed resting on the floor, and the headboard resting against the heads of those sleeping in it.
Solid hardwood, however, is a durable and reliable material that lasts. It is one of the best materials for beds and headboards. In addition to its durability, it has a timeless look that goes well with any style, and one of the major advantages of wood furniture is that it can be refinished to renew its appearance, or even just to give it a new look. It is the best choice for most furnishings in the home, but it can be tough to find solid wood furniture these days. However, Dallas homeowners are in luck.
