Fitting a headboard to your bed couldn’t be easier. Most headboards come with struts. These struts screw into the back of the headboard and will fit neatly on to the back of the any standard size divan bed.
Your divan bed will have two bolts on the back (most divans include the bolts on both sides so you can decide which way to face your divan), these bolts unscrew, you then put the headboard in place and then screw the bolts back in place (see image 2 below)
The struts supplied with most headboards allows you to slide the headboard up and down the back of the divan depending on how thick your mattress is. Once you’ve found the perfect height you just tighten the bolts and the headboard holds in place. (See image 1 below)
Floor standing headboards work slightly differently. Rather than include separate struts, these are part of the headboard which allow the headboard to stand in place behind the bed. In most cases the headboard will include a gap on the standing frame which is where the bolts can be screwed in allowing for a sturdy head end which wont move about.
Wall mounted headboards are supplied with wall mounting fixings, we always recommend you use a DIY expert when fixing this to the wall, they will ensure the correct tools are used and that your wall will support the wall mounted headboard chosen.
