Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do the headboards attach?


We recommend Wall Mounting our headboards.  They are delivered with a wall bracket already mounted on the back of the headboard and an easy fit plywood mounting plate is supplied for you to fix on the wall.

It is a simple DIY job and when complete all you do is hang the headboard on the bracket supplied. Fitting instructions are provided with your headboard.

If you have plasterboard walls, please ensure that you use plugs/fixings that are appropriate for your wall. We recommended Plasterboard Wall Mounting Fixings.

We offer a delivery/install service. (Auckland area)

2. Where do I measure the height of the headboard from?

Either the top of the base of your bed, or from the floor. Our headboards are mostly 1.8m tall, but as they are custom made we can adjust the height to suit. They can be wall mounted at the height of the base of your bed making them a stunning focal point at 2.1m. Alternatively, they are still a tall 1.8m at floor height.
