A headboard is a wall mounted or standalone furniture piece that rests at or above the head of a bed. The headboard was originally used as an added layer of insulation in the bedroom to keep a sleeper warm and protected from any cold drafts that could occur inside a poorly insulated house. Since modern homes today now require adequate insulation, most headboards now serve a purely aesthetic role in a bedroom. Common designs for headboards include wooden panels or fabric tufted panels that are soft to the touch and prevent the possibility of a bumped head.
