Zen model tilted wooden headboard: It consists in a wooden panel that is inserted through inclined millings in the side panels of the bed.The space taken up by the headboard in the bed is 5 cm. To mantain the selected internal measures we will therefore make the bed 5 cm longer at no extra cost. This means that a bed with a headboard selected for a mattress of 200 cm will have and internal length of 205 cm and an external length of 212 cm. Since the headboard is tilted outwards, we recommend to consider a total length of 218 cm.
External tilted wooden headboard: it's possible to accessorize the bed also with a tilted wooden headboard that is fixed externally to the head panel with metal screws. The price is the same, just request this variant when ordering. This headboard protrudes about 11 cm from the bed frame so for a bed with an internal length of 200 cm, the total length is 218 cm
