This grey velvet Chesterfield-style buttoned headboard is now on sale

Aldi has just dropped the price on its bargain velvet grey headboard, making it three times cheaper than a similar version from high-street giant Next. The headboard is a great way to revamp your bedroom and give it a fresh stylish touch that will fit in perfectly with your bedroom ideas

The king-size Aldi grey headboard was originally priced at £79.99 when we first spotted it in-store but the price has been slashed to £49.99. We also spotted that the price of the double grey headboard had also dropped in price from £69.99 to £39.99, however, it has already sold out. 

So if you want to get your hands on this bargain special buy, you better act fast!

The headboard is perfect for upgrading your bedroom on a budget without having to get your hands dirty with a complex DIY project. The headboard comes in a dark grey, so will match perfectly with neutral or grey bedroom ideas for a cohesive look. The kingsize headboard measures approximately 153 x 6.5 x 61cm  – but make sure to check it'll fit your space before you order. 

The Aldi grey headboard promises to be easy to install with screws and wall plugs, plus metal brackets to make it simple to mount on the wall. However, we haven't tested this so we only have Aldi's word for it. 

The Aldi grey headboard is an Aldi online exclusive and is available to pre-order now with a dispatch date of 27th December.

The Next grey headboard

Next has a very similar headboard available on its website right now: the Parisian Upholstered Headboard in Opulent Velvet Steel Grey, £225 for a double. It's the same size give or take half a centimetre and has a lavish design that'll give you the 5-star hotel-bed look.

This paler grey version offers a more opulent and high-end version, which is reflected in the price tag. If your budget can stretch to it, we think this would be a lovely option to add a touch of glamour to a bedroom and provide a modern finish. 

You don't need to have a king-sized bed to have a king-sized headboard, a larger headboard creates the illusion of a larger and more luxurious bed. If your budget is tight, there are lots of great DIY headboard ideas that you could try instead.
