If you already have a bed frame, and perhaps a mattress, and are adding a headboard or footboard, make sure the width you choose matches the frame or mattress you already have. Or if choose to start with a headboard, and then want to add the mattress and frame, same issue – make sure one fits the other, and do consider your space size as well. Thus have we categorized headboards by size.
Our beds are organized by style, material, color/finish and, of course, size. Size names are sometimes confusing, and the precise “size” measurements can vary, though usually not critically when placing a bed in a room. But again, please do make sure the width is what you want, despite the size name, and if you are tall, please do confirm the bed length before ordering as well. As you consider your head or foot board, make sure you understand the terminology for sizes: Standard and “California” Kings, Queen Size, Full Size (called Double) Beds, and Twin (called Single) beds.
