One of the great things about buying a bespoke adjustable bed is exerting full control over colours, fabrics, and accessories. Before you get caught up with accessories like heating functions and massage programs, make sure you take the time to consider your headboard. It’s common for people to choose fabric upholstery since that’s what they’re used to, but here are just a few reasons why you should think about picking leather instead.
If you’re buying an adjustable bed, you probably suffer from some kind of mobility issue. As such, you’re more likely to spend long periods of time in bed, which means you’ll spend a lot of time with your head against the headboard. That makes hygiene important – you don’t want all the moisture and oils that come off your skin soaking into fabric. Leather is far more hygienic because it is non-porous, which also makes it impervious to dust and pests. It’s also very easy to clean – all you need to do is wipe it down with a cloth.
Whether you’re looking at first-class seats on a plane or in a luxury sedan, you’ll encounter plenty of leather. The reason is simple: leather is a premium product that offers premium comfort. Adjustable bed users require the best support and the highest levels of comfort, so it makes sense to choose a leather headboard over a fabric one.
Fabric headboards absorb liquids and stains quite easily, so you’ll probably need to replace a fabric headboard sooner than a leather headboard. Adjustable beds cost more than regular beds, so you’ll want to get everything perfect the first time round and not have to worry about replacing the headboard in a few years’ time.
Last but not least, leather’s prestigious appearance will elevate the style of your bedroom. Some people assume that adjustable beds will look unfashionable, usually because they associated them with the kind found in hospitals. If you want to maintain high-end styling while enjoying superior comfort, leather is the way to go.
