We will discuss how to mount a headboard on the wall in this article.

1st  Step

To draw reference points on the wall, use a pencil. When you place your tape measure down, center the headboard and both sides of the wall evenly.

Use a painter’s tape to measure later for the hardware. A few inches of the headboard’s bottom edge should extend below the top of the mattress to create the illusion of floating.

2nd Step

Locate the headboard using the stud finder. Find the stud by detecting nails in the drywall. Angular mounting hangers that are mounted vertically and attached with nails at an angle are used to mount hangers on wall studs. Objects that weigh more than 25 pounds need to be mounted with hanging hangers.

3rd Step

To mount a headboard, first, place mounting brackets on the wall. Mount the headboard with the back facing up. Attach the mounting brackets to the back of your headboard, aligning them with the wall mounts.

For interlocking flush mount brackets, properly connect each bracket to its neighbor, lowering it down slightly so that your headboard can sit flush against the wall.

4th Step

When you have everything set up, lift the headboard above the mounting hangers that are set against the wall so that it can be seated into the appropriate brackets as you slide it down the wall. During this step, you may need assistance.

Attaching Headboard To Bed Frame

In general, the installation process is straightforward and does not require many tools. Examine the headboard brackets at the head of the bed to see if your bed frame is compatible.

Then, hold your headboard bracket up to your frame and check that it has four bolt holes or slots that are horizontal and oblong, about an inch apart.

Attaching a free-standing headboard to a divan bed can be difficult; add the fact that you don’t want to vandalize your furniture and you have a recipe for disaster.
For those who already own a divan bed, we recommend purchasing an attachable, or free-standing headboard that functions as both a frame and an external wall without the need for anything more than just some velcro.

How do you attach a headboard to a metal frame?

Ensure that the headboard is firmly pressed against the right side of the frame. To make sure the bolts protrude from both sides of the headboard, drive them through the back.

Put a nut around each bolt and flip it into place as you repeat the process with each bolt along the same side. It is important to test that the headboard is secure in all directions before attaching the headboard to your bed’s base.

Final Word

Putting a headboard up on the wall can be a fun project to do with friends and family, especially if there is a degree of difficulty attached to it. Just make sure you come prepared with the tools and skills you’ll need to put it up against the wall safely. This is going to be something you look at every day for years to come so don’t take any chances when it comes to safety issues.
