For Half Price you get Half a Headboard

All upholstered headboards are not created equal.  At higher price points most of us comparison shop…even me.  I was startled to find one that was half the price of what Glam Vintage & Moderne offers.  On closer investigation I realized that it seemed much lower in height.  With today’s higher box springs and pillow top mattresses I need a minimum height of 54″ (Glam has 54, 60 & 73 inch heights) and the lower price one is a strip that is mounted to the wall just above the mattress. Quality headboards are about 3 inches thick and upholstered on both sides so they can be bolted to the bed frame or wall mounted.  Discount headboards have upholstered fronts and are really just flimsy wall mounted panels. Furthermore, details created with tacks, button tufting and piping are generally not prevalent in the discount variety.  Buyer Beware…..
