Here are the top 5 reasons to go for the headboard-only look for your bedroom with some solid wood examples of from our Amish bedroom furniture.

Your Room Will Look Bigger

The absence of a footboard frees up space. A simple, less bulky headboard, or one that lets the wall show through, also contributes to making a smaller bedroom look bigger. No footboard means there’s nothing you need to walk around, especially at night, in the dark, when your toes are exposed and vulnerable.

A headboard can serve as the new focal point of the bedroom, drawing attention upon entry.
