1. How do I go about ordering a headboard/bed?

An in-studio consultation is required to go over your design, select a fabric, and to make the initial deposit.

The details needed will be the following:

- What size of headboard are you looking for (Single, Double, Queen or King)?
- What design of headboard are looking for ("Balliol", "Campion", etc)? My "Portfolio" has examples of headboard shapes.
                                                       - What style of headboard are you looking for ("Contemporary Wrap", "Diamond Tufted", etc)?  Again, look to the "Portfolio" for examples.
- How tall would you like the headboard to be?
- Do you also require the bed package (upholstered side rails and footboard)?
- Do you have a fabric in mind? Such as a linen, velvet, micro-suede, other?

In general, the information we need to provide you with a price for a headboard shown in our portfolio is the image number (i.e. DSC06553f), along with the size of headboard (Single, Double, Queen or King)?

If you have a design in mind that isn’t shown in our portfolio, you can also send us the specific details by providing us with answers to the questions below

All inquiries should be email to us directly, at contactus@amp-upholstery.ca

2. How much does a custom headboard cost?

Our custom upholstered headboards start at $450/single size headboard. HST of 13% is extra.  Shipping is available but at an added cost.  

This price includes the labor, materials, foam and fabric.  The fabric included in the package price is based on a "mid-priced" fabric.

3. Can you build an upholstered bed?

Yes.  We offer an upholstered bed package which consists of side rails and a foot board.

Please note that we do not offer platform style beds with slats.  Our upholstered skirting is "decorative" only.

4. Do you offer platform beds?

No.  Perhaps in the future.

5. How long does it take to make a new headboard?

Once your project is booked with us, it will take (on average) 3-4 weeks to produce.

6. Can I supply my own fabric?

I will consider "COM" from professionals/decorators, but I have the right to refuse the fabric if it doesn't meet my standards.  

I carry many lines of fabrics, such as Maxwell, JF Fabrics, Kravet and Waverly (just to name a few companies). Our fabric sample library is very extensive and I am very picky when it comes to what I will carry, and what I will show my clients.  

Not all fabrics are created equal, therefore not all fabrics can be used for all applications.  That is why I take time in carefully choosing fabrics to show my clients, ensuring that they are selecting the right fabric for the job.

7. Can I fit a headboard into my car/van?

Typically speaking, any size of Single (Twin) or Double (Full) headboard will fit inside of a mini-van or some SUV's.  

With respect to Queen sized headboards, if it is under 54" tall, it will fit inside of a mini-van or most sport utility vehicles.  A headboard between 54" - 66" tall will fit inside of a cargo van.  Anything above 66" will  need to be picked up in a pick-up truck or cube van.

Most of the King sized headboards have to be picked up in either a pick-up truck, cargo-van or larger.

8. What are the standard dimensions of a headboard?

The standard headboard dimensions we offer are:

Single sized headboard: 40" wide x 54" - 60" tall x 2" thick, 

Double sized headboard: 55" wide x 54" - 60" x 2" thick, 

Queen sized headboard: 62" wide x 54" - 60" x 3.5" thick,

King sized headboard:  78" wide x 54" - 60" x 3.5" thick.  

Because we are a custom builder, we are not limited to the above dimensions.  We can (for the most part) build any size of headboard.

10. Do you any other type of headboards, other than those upholstered in fabric?

No.  We only offer fabric upholstered headboards.

11. Do you offer upholstered footboards that will go with my headboard?

No.  The only foot boards we offer are the "decorative" ones offered as part of the "standard" bed packages.

12. Do you ship out of Province or to the USA?

I can, but it is ridiculously expensive to ship a large headboard or bed.  On average, it will cost $700-$1000 to ship a bed from Toronto to almost any part of the contiguous US or coast to coast in Canada.
