Q3: How to attach a bed head to the wall?
You can attach a bed head to a flat, bare surface by following these three steps:
- Step 1: Decide where you want the bed head to hang. Take accurate measurements of the distance between the attachment areas on the bed head and the distance to the floor. Make the necessary marks on the wall to guide you.
- Step 2: Install the fitting elements. Securely attach brackets to the wall using the necessary hardware. This could include drilling holes and using fasteners that include screws with wall plugs, rawl bolts, or finding supporting studs in your wall. The heavier the bed head, the bigger and stronger the hardware required.
- Step 3: Hang your wall mounted bed head. If you have measured correctly and attached the brackets properly, you should be able to hang your bed head the way you would hang a picture.
However, you don’t need to attach a bed head to the wall. You can lean the bed head against the wall, or you can mount the bed head to an existing bed frame or bed base. All BeddingCo free standing bed heads come with mounting hardware for easy installation, if required.
