Wall Units and Headboards

Head boards and wall units don’t help you sleep any better, rather they define the bed. While flat head boards save on floor space, they don’t offer the functional service that bookshelf head boards and wall units provide. Head boards are your chance to express your style and emphasize décor. The flat head board can be a simple, basic panel of wood or an elaborate puzzle.
