The headboard has become an integral part of bedroom furniture in the contemporary bedroom. Often the centerpiece of a bedroom, there are many design options available to you. Some are simple and understated. Others may feature cushioned back support, storage functions or built-in reading lights.

Wooden

Wooden headboards are a classic and timeless choice. Traditional wooden styles can take center stage or be beautifully understated, letting your bedding or other design features take the spotlight. Youíll find paneled options, mission, spindle or sleigh styles and even variations that incorporate shelving or drawers for storage. Modern options could use simple shapes that highlight rustic or distressed finishes.

A wooden headboard doesnít have to be traditional. For a more unusual wooden option, consider repurposing an intricate antique door or a hand-carved medallion. 

Upholstered

Upholstered headboards are often finished with fine textiles like velvet and satin but they can also be found in leather or leather-like materials. There are plenty of understated styles that come in standard sizes but many upholstered headboards are quite large and can become a natural focal point for the room. Sophisticated details like brass nailheads or thick piping are often used in these designs.

There are DIY options available that can show you how to add upholstery to an existing headboard. Consider this option if you already have a headboard that is a size that fits your space well.

Paint or Textiles

If your room is on the smaller side and you want to conserve space, incorporate a headboard that is either painted on the wall or created with hanging textiles.

If you opt to paint, carefully measure and draw your design on the wall where the head of your bed will be. Use painters tape to achieve a crisp line. Itís easy to repaint if you change your color scheme or bedroom style so this is a good option if you often like to refresh your space.

If textiles are a better fit for you, consider installing a decorative curtain rod near the ceiling line above your bed. You can use the curtain rod to hang curtains, tapestries or even macrame or woven pieces. If you have a few bedding sets that you cycle through, this gives you the flexibility to easily update the hanging textile to match.

While it's not always possible for conditions to be "perfect" when a real estate agent is showing a home for sale, things usually go more smoothly when homeowners are not present.

There are several reasons for this, including the fact that the family's presence at a real estate showing may make the prospect feel self conscious and uncomfortable.

Among other things, the potential buyer may feel like they're intruding and being an imposition. Some buyers also find it harder to concentrate on the many details they need to focus on to evaluate the home.

The ideal scenario happens when house hunters are able to picture themselves as the future owners of your home -- perhaps imagining what it would feel like to cook dinner in your kitchen, entertain guests in your living room, and relax on the back porch. However, when you and your family are there, it makes it more difficult for them to conjure up those images in their mind. So, to the extent that it's possible, it's often a good idea to take the kids out for ice cream or go on a short trip to the mall when a showing of your home is scheduled.

Granted, it may be a little inconvenient -- especially if the visit was set up at the last minute -- but you don't want to unintentionally dissuade someone from making an offer on your house. You never know what might "upset the apple cart!" There's a lot at stake and every prospect is a potential buyer.

Ideally, prospects should feel unpressured, unhurried, and free to express their opinions about what they're seeing. If they feel like they have to weigh their words carefully and be discreet about every reaction, then their discomfort may spill over into their feelings about the house, itself. Since buying a home is often an emotional decision, any negative feelings in the prospect could potentially derail the chances of a purchase offer being made.

Real estate agents not only serve as knowledgeable "tour guides" and objective sources of information for house hunters, but they're also there to accentuate the positive and minimize the negative aspects of a property. One of their main objectives is to put prospects at ease and help them appreciate all the desirable aspects of your home.

There are dozens of details, property features, unique attributes, and flaws that potential buyers are trying to assimilate and remember, so the fewer distractions there are, the better! That's why it makes sense to keep the atmosphere as uncomplicated as possible. It can be a bit of a delicate balance for real estate agents to maintain, but most have the training, experience, and finesse to keep things on an even keel and moving forward!
