Headboard and storage in one. This is what this Prepac BSH-6643 Sonoma Storage Headboard wants to convey to everyone who’s looking for both headboard and nightstand for their bedroom. What makes it even more amazing is its affordability. It’s like you bought a headboard and a nightstand for a price of one. Imagine, the price is under $150.00. Now, does this excite you?
Before this piece thrill you, let’s give ourselves a time to breathe first. We need to examine it in every angle to make sure we’re making the right decision before spending for this one.
Let’s start with the most important part, the wood.
Well, there are no other materials involved in this Storage Headboard except its wood. Now, the question is, what kind of wood did they use to build this piece?
They used laminated composite wood together with MDF on this Prepac Headboard. What we like about the wood they used is it’s non-toxic. Which means you won’t worry about the chemical composition of these woods whenever you sleep at night. You’ll definitely have a peace of mind while asleep.
Since this is laminate wood, you might wonder if it chips out when something bumps into it. Well, with the way they laminated the wood, we didn’t find uneven finishing, and it doesn’t get wounded easily. It gets hairline scratches, which is a normal thing for laminated wood. But we saw none major issues aside from that. We’re still confident that the finishing won’t disappoint you.
They combine high-quality composite wood and MDF, right? So, where can we see them?
You’ll find the high-quality composite wood on this Sonoma’s frame, and the MDF on its backer and other small parts of this piece.
We like how strong and reliable the frame is. The structure is pretty solid. You can even trust this piece to stand alone. Well, you don’t need to attach it to your bedframe. Just lean it against the wall and it will stand there freely. Don’t worry because it doesn’t wobble, especially if you assembled it correctly.
There’s something you need to know about the wood. Even though it stands strong, you need to work with it carefully. Since it’s not solid wood, connecting each piece would be a pain. You need to screw each part with each other, and too much pressure will damage the board. So, take your time assembling it, and ask someone to help you with the process. That will avoid unfavorable events on the wood.
There’s a lot of wood involved on this Sonoma Storage, so expect a significant weight for this one. You need someone to help you carry the box, and even when assembling it.
It’s 69 pounds, which means you may or may not be able to carry the assembled one from one place to another. So, to avoid damage, do not hesitate to ask for an extra pair of hands to help you both in the carrying and assembling it.
Prepac BSH-6643 Sonoma Storage Headboard has a basic and straightforward design. Prepac both want to give you storage and a headboard that’s why they made this one for you. But, there’s nothing really stunning with its look. What’s you’re paying on this piece is its functionality.
How functional is this Storage Headboard?
It will surprise you with its three compartments and top part. There’s a lot of room for everything. It’s deeper than we expected. You can even use it as your bookshelf, in case you’re wondering if your books could fit on it. Side compartments are 9.25 inches deep, 11.25 inches high, and 21.5 inches wide, while the center compartment has a length of 16.5 inches. Now, does this dimension entice you?
Aside from the fact that it has a compartment, another thing you need to know is the middle shelf. It’s adjustable. Yes, that’s correct. You can adjust the shelf in the center storage in accordance to how you need it. You could even remove the divider if you think you need more space. It all depends on you.
We noticed that there are no round cut-outs for wirings, in case you want to charge your devices on this headboard. But even though they put cut-outs, it will be difficult for you to pass the cords since you will lean this against your wall. So it’s better if you’ll install a socket directly on the backer or wherever you want to install it. This will maximize the functionality of this one.
Let’s talk about the dimension more.
We’ve already mentioned to you the depth, length, and height of the three compartments (Side Compartments: 21.5” W x 9.25” D x 11.25” H and Center Compartment: 16.5” W x 9.25” D x 11.25” H). So, it’s time for us to give you the overall dimension.
Overall dimension is 65.75 inches wide, 11 inches deep, and 43 inches high.
As for the height, it’s perfect for any height of bedframe with a mattress. We don’t find the bottom of the compartment overlapping with the top of the mattress. Well, just to give you an idea, the height of the bottom compartment from the floor is 29 inches. So, how high is your mattress from the floor?
The reason that this headboard could stand on its own is because of its width. It’s 11 inches deep. Aside from it standing alone, another reason the manufacturer widened its width is to provide ample space on its top for you.
Sizes and Colors Available
It’s only available in three sizes in Amazon—Twin, Full/Queen, and King. But, what we notice with the Twin Size is, it only has two compartments, unlike with the Full/Queen and King which have three storages.
Let’s check the colors for each size as of this writing. This might change in the future.
- Twin: Espresso and White
- Full/Queen: Black, Espresso, White, Cherry, and Washed Black
- King: Black, Espresso, White, and Cherry
We heard a lot of complaints about the assembly. Well, we also have our own struggle with it. The problem is there’s no label on each wood. Yes, they provided an instruction booklet but it’s not enough. There’s a picture of the headboard, but you need to figure out which one is this part and which one is that part.
Also, since this is a heavy piece of furniture, you need an extra pair of hands to help you fasten each part. If you’ll do it alone, the possibility of damaging the wood is huge because it will be difficult for you to balance it while bolting it against each other.
You’ll get a 5-year limited warranty upon purchase. What we like most about this is, Prepac is very serious with their business. They are easy to contact, and if you have complaints with the parts of this Prepac BSH-6643 Sonoma Storage Headboard, they will attend to your concern immediately. They also provide a new one if proven that their product is not in good condition when you receive it.
