One customer who bought 2 of these for girls sharing a bedroom said that she was simultaneously hopeful but worried about the price being so inexpensive. Her expectations were beaten! The linen looks great (not cheap) and the gray color was just liked it appeared online. We would recommend this product. it is super easy to attach the legs and find a metal bed frame to attach it, too. Most important, they look great!

For the price, we were actually pretty impressed. Straight out of the box, the corners of the item might be dirty. If you had paid more, you would care but you expect things to get stained and can cover it with upholstery fabric when it comes the time to do so. This item is sturdy enough, has thin batting but the batting is better than a bare wall. The fabric is plain but has a texture that you will like. It is easy to assemble, although it may take an extra set of hands to get it positioned right for a larger bed. The bolts attaching legs to the headboard can get the piece nice and snug.

You are not likely going to get everything you want to get in a headboard at this price point, so you need to think about what you need and what you can live without. If all you need is a nice-looking headboard (that should be the basic requirement – along with durability and quality construction, of course), then this item does the trick and has been purchased many, many times by customers just like you. Well, not exactly like you, but close enough to warrant following in their footsteps for something as innocuous as buying a headboard!


There were multiple issues with this item ranging from delivery issues to coloring issues and inconsistencies.

One customer’s delivery had the item’s wrapping and bag covered in a slippery, dirty grease which dirtied the headboard as well and the wooden leg was splintered. They said that, for the price, you get what you pay for. The material is nice and looks better than one would expect. However, there is a lack of quality control, so you’re taking a chance. The colors are lovely color but darn near impossible to spot clean or clean overall. It can look very worn within a year. Also, if you thought this would be easy to install, it may not be the case for everyone.

Furthermore, the gray is more blue than gray, and the quality of the headboard is fine for the price, but the item received 2 stars because multiple times in the Q&A and in the manufacturer’s description it notes that the headboard can be wall mounted. There are no indications in the package or the instructions for how to do this. This really disappointed many customers. They expected to have that information included for an item that indicates over and over again that wall mounting is an option for assembly.


With linear edges and a straightforward design, this headboard has a sleek, elegant look. It can be used to elevate any room or be used to complement bedroom décor with a soft and balanced look. This is because it is expertly constructed with a durable blend of solid wood poles and particle board, and the strong headboard is built to stand the test of time. With a pleasant hue, this neutral headboard is upholstered in fine linen fabric that lends just the right amount of texture to the overall look. This is why this item has a rating of about 4.5 across almost 3,000 reviews. This is not the most highly-rated headboard of all time but it is one that is relatively inexpensive, can be currently purchased at a discount, and comes in nice colors that can be used to create a variety of themes and moods in your room. If you simply want a functional headboard and are ok with whatever it takes to get one, then this item is an easy one to choose.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
