Choosing a wooden headboard usually comes down to two things: your price and style. Fortunately, you can find a pine headboard for a lower price than most other types of headboards. Traditionally, pine headboards are left natural for a rustic style. You can stain or paint your pine wood headboard to match a more contemporary dècor as well. You must also choose the style of the headboard, which may include rectangular, with spindles or with shelves, to name a few.
The chief advantage of pine headboards is that you pay a relatively low price for solid wood. A basic, twin-sized pine headboard can be found in many stores for very reasonable prices. Even if your bed is king sized, a full headboard and footboard should be relatively inexpensive. Good deals can be found during sales and on the Internet for a timeless natural pine headboard.
You might love the light, Scandinavian look of an Eastern White Pine headboard treated with clear polyurethane. A sunny pine headboard has more of a golden tone that will deepen with age. If you prefer a deep amber color, you should consider a salvaged antique pine headboard made out of heartwood. This is the most expensive option, but really shows off the natural beauty of pine.
You might not be interested in a rustic, natural looking headboard. Painted pine headboards are perfect for kid’s rooms. You can dare purchase a punchy, kid-friendly color since the headboard is pretty inexpensive. For a more mature look, you can bring a little color into the bedroom with a stained pine headboard. Pine headboards are even compatible with modern furnishings if painted black or white. The most inexpensive version is an unfinished pine headboard that you can stain, paint and seal as you wish.
You can find pine headboards in almost any shape and style imaginable. Country farmhouse headboards typically feature rounded embellishments and cutouts, such as hearts and stars. If you prefer a simpler headboard, you might look into shaker-styled headboards that might feature spindles or inlays. Hutch style headboards may be a little pricier, but may be worth it for the extra storage space, eliminating the need for side tables. If you have the space, you may want to consider purchasing a headboard and footboard set in pine, or a mix of pine and metal to be the focal point of the room.
