Upholstered bed head boards
We are getting a new bed and I love the look of an upholstered bed head board when it is co-ordinated with bedding and curtains. So pretty! And we both read in bed and the padded head board looks comfy.
But when I mentioned this to DH he thought the upholstery would get stained (neither of us wear hair pomade!), and even my dear sister mentioned germs (yes, she is a bit of a germ phobic).
We are an older couple with grown kids and the only stains I need to protect our furniture from these days is from muddy dog paws. The dogs don't climb on the bed head boards!
So.... those with upholstered head boards, please give me your experience. Do they get stained, frayed, ripped or anything else? And do you find them comfy to lean back on when reading in bed?
This is the last time I plan on buying a bed or redoing the bedroom. I want the bed to look good for the next oh, 20 to 30 years, fate willing.
