    Question Full Size Headboard

    Hey guys, what is your take on how wide a full size headboard should be? The mattress size is 54 inches wide.

    Atleast 54" wide. OK, it would depend on your design. Normally you leave about 2" on each side to attach your railto.

    Here is a pic of a Mission Style Bed. You will see that the posts on either side are at least 4" wider than the mattress. This is a King Size Bed. The post placemnt is so that the side rails will be a little outside of the mattress. In this case the side rails do not support the bed, they are just there to make the whole thing work.

    dave take a bit of time and draw out your head board idea,, then like they have said yu need at least a 2 inch post or support piece to attache your rails too..using the matters size you need to allow a little on each side for the coverings but no more than a inch. between the mattress and the rails
