Here’s a nightmare scenario for you: after a long day of work and a hellish commute, you’re beyond ready to dive into bed. But just as soon as your head hits the pillow, you and that fluffy essential have slid right off. What could be standing between you and a much-deserved peaceful night’s sleep?

Hello, headboards!

For those not looking to place their bed frame directly against a wall, headboards are an absolute must. Functionality aside, the aesthetic appeal should also be a big factor in your decision to buy, as a headboard is probably one of the first things your eye will be drawn to upon entering the room.

Since there are a ton of unique headboards on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, I’ve found several in a range of design styles and prices. This haul was a big win for fellow bargain hunters, with beautiful vintage finds and sleek wood designs (all for a great price) dominating the pack.


Rest easy at night knowing you were one smart shopper, because the under $200 crowd isn’t skimping out on style. Vintage bohemian vibes and high-quality upholstery are well within your grasp.


Just because you want a designer label doesn’t mean you have to go overboard with the cost. Shopping secondhand means saving big on brands like West Elm and Heywood Wakefield, while still getting great quality. Now it just depends which style you lean towards: plush and comfy, or streamlined and functional?


You value serious style and visual impact, and you aren’t afraid to show it. Moving past the basic function of headboards, this trio offers the additional benefit of beautiful accents and eye-catching designs. Let these be the “centerpiece” of your bedroom to anchor the entire aesthetic. Sweet dreams indeed.
