headboards under 100

For many, finding a headboard can be the most challenging part of furnishing and decorating a room. Headboards can go easily dismissed because they are hidden behind mounds of pillows, but without them you can almost always sense something is missing. 

When I was getting ready to move into my sophomore apartment, I was ecstatic - no more dorm furniture and it was finally my time to fully decorate the way I pleased. But, like many of you out there I was stumped when it came to choosing out a headboard, not only because it is difficult, but because most headboards are crazzzyyyy expensive - I had no idea. You want me to pay $1000+ for just the backboard of my bed?! No THANK YOU. Maybe when I’m a millionaire but not while I’m a broke college student, LOL. This little pickle I was in led me to find some amazing headboard options out there that are budget friendly, which I love. 

Now, before you go anywhere I want you to know, these are on the cheaper end which means they’re not going to give you that same feel your parent’s $5000 bedroom furniture did, but they will do the job and a headboard is better than no headboard. 

If you are one that loves to thrift, I also recommend checking out Facebook Market for a bed frame and headboard - you might find a hidden treasure and if you don’t feel the need to buy something brand new, then don't!! We all love to help Mother Earth out when we can. 🙂

1. Dorel Living Provo Headboard

I love how elegant this metal bed frame is! The metal allows you to go so many ways with your decor, from modern, to boho, to rustic - the possibilities are endless. 

The bed frame is also adaptable, so it can accommodate full size bed frames and queen size bed frames! From the reviews, it seems the assembly is stress-free, which is something I always look for when choosing furniture (putting together furniture is not my strong suit).

“Easy to assemble. Took about 30 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised at how organized the tools were and how easy the directions were to follow. “ - Amazon Review

2. Woven Fan Headboard

If you are a boho lover and looking for something unique and out-of-the-ordinary, then this headboard is perfect for you!

The fan-shaped headboard has iron framing, so it won’t be flopping all around. There are so many ways to make this piece your own, the options are endless and when you’re done using it as a headboard, you could use it as a decorative piece!

3. Stainless Steel Metal Queen Headboard

A classic metal frame is perfect for those of you who like to switch things up every now and then when it comes to your decor. Metal frames will adapt to whatever style you are going for, so don’t be afraid to spice things up!

You can never go wrong with black - the color is a staple with any decorating I do. Black will never go out of style and I love how versatile you can be with the color.

5. Hammersley Mission Slat Headboard

If you are looking for something simple, a wood headboard is just for you. The white wood is perfect to bring fresh brightness into any room, and you can never go wrong with a clean, simple design.

6. Annabel Gray Twin Diamond Tufted Performance Velvet Headboard

A tufted bed frame is a classic and perfect if you are going to go for some lighter bedding. I think you can always use gray headboards to your advantage, don’t let the gray overtake your room, but allow it to help shine a spotlight on your gorgeous bedding and pillows!

7. Carson Carrington Stryn Twin Velvet Headboard

I have a very similar headboard to this in my guest bedroom and I think it looks amazing! Love the details and think the symmetry is perfect!

I think this is an amazing headboard and I love all the details on the piece. The headboard is elegant and contemporary, giving you an expensive look at a reasonable price. Yes, please!

12. Fuente Upholstered Panel Headboard

As I said before, and I will say it again, you can never go wrong with black. If you are looking to make a bold statement with your headboard, I don’t think this is the piece for you. But, if you want a headboard that will more-so show off you bedding and pillows, then this would be amazing in your bedroom.

13. Warsaw Upholstered Panel Headboard

The arched metal design in this headboard is elegant and classic! I love the description they wrote for the piece so I’m going to inset it here: 

“With simple lines and an open, airy design this metal headboard with an arched spindle design is the perfect addition to your bedroom. The gently arched headboard with modest spindle fittings create a sleek profile for an understated style.”

P.S. I don’t know about you, but I am NOT into the way they styled the piece in their photos, do not let that turn you away, there is so much you can do with this headboard!

20. Francis Upholstered Panel Headboard

Joss & Main has some wonderful headboards and this might be one of their most popular (it has over 14,600 reviews in itself). I love the contemporary look of the piece and think it is extremely versatile!
