The headboard is usually the focal point of a bedroom. There are so many designs of bedroom headboards. One that popular is a bedroom panel headboard. A bedroom panel headboard is a kind of headboard that is solid, rectangular, and often made of wood. Variations on the design of this kind of headboard usually have to do with details that are carved or etched into the wood and the kind of finish or paint that is applied to the wood. In most cases, a bedroom panel headboard has two or three panels of equal size that are arranged in a horizontal line. These panels are usually made of the same kind of wood as the rest of the headboard, but may have decorations that are unique to the rest of the headboard. Variation in the size of the panels is most common in a bedroom panel headboard that has three sections. In these kinds of headboards, the panel in the center may be larger than the panels that flank it on either side.
The panels on the side, while smaller than the central panel, are usually uniform in size. This design is reminiscent of the arrangement of window panes in Venetian windows. Like Venetian windows, there are some bedroom panel headboards that have arched or curved tops that break with the standard rectangular shape of most panel headboards. After all, a bedroom panel headboard can be completely utilitarian but nowadays they have a lot of aesthetic values as well.
