The original purpose of the headboard was to protect people from cold and draft coming from the concrete wall. It served as a barrier between the wall and the bed. But that was way back, when structures were not as well-insulated as today.
If this is so, how come headboards are still used to this day? It seems like the use of this furniture had stuck. And it’s probably because it looks good, doesn’t it?
If it weren’t for the headboard, the bed would look too plain or even boring. It’s as if the bed wouldn’t look (or feel) complete without it. In short, headboards are still here for aesthetic purpose.
Of course, while most headboards are purely decorative, others still serve a practical purpose. Some headboards are designed as storage space, holding all sorts of personal items from jewelry to books to personal documents.
