I don't have the foot part and just have a headboard which is not attached to the bed.

I have had the same headboard and dressing tables in a heavy can type of wood for many, many years and they were one of the things I took from the home when I separated as I had had them even before we met some 18 years earlier!
I keep seeing new headboards and thinking how nice and modern they look in the shiny white etc. but there is nothing wrong with my nice old one.

Can't quite understand what the foot part is for but it would probably look tidier at the end of the bed with one, as I do not tuck sheets in at the foot of the bed.

Absolutely I do...
I am not into a bed without.
The end is for keeping sheets and covers from falling off the bed, which they do without one.
I have to have my sheets tucked in, as a restless sleeper they would all be on the floor in the morning....and I hate that, with a passion.
LOVE this bed!! over $2,200 but if I had the money would buy one just like it same colour...

We used to have a lovely antique looking headboard and footer when we married. We have had a few different bed bases in our married life, and now the original head board and footer doesn't fit any of the modern bed bases we have had. It isn't the right length according to modern bed sizes. We still have it out in the shed. I haven't had the heart to give it away. We just have the mattress and base now, with a lovely doona on top.
Since childhood I have only had one bed that did not have both and I hated the bl00dy thing. (Finy, I think the end is designed to keep the folded back quilt or bedcover from sliding off but that type of thing is barely used now.) The ensemble that I hated would wiggle, jiggle, wobble like a jelly, rock and roll and the pillows would vanish. I much prefer a bed with a frame, headboard and footboard, usually wooden, that I can buy a new mattress for when I feel the urge. I feel happier reading in bed with pillows firmly held by the headboard and I like knowing that the pillows won't vanish in the night.

My.bed does not have either one. I plan on getting a headboard.made but its no big deal.
My bed has a head board and foot board. It is an antique Jenny Lynn from 1860.
Oooh. Lots of lovely turned wood.

I like you, Rice. I loved your answers to my practical joke question. I think we could be "mates." LOL

Yes we have a headboard and a footer

No. I have neither, just a queen ensemble. I don't have a problem with bedding falling off as the top sheet is "enveloped" and basically that's all I have on the bed except for pillows. I have a cotton bedspread which is folded away in an ottoman in the spare room and might only see the light of day in Winter as that is the only covering plus top sheet all Winter long.
I just have a Headboard. It is rather plain and very stylish, and though I have now had it , along with the matching bedside tables, for 30 years, it still looks like new and fits so well with my decor, despite the fact that THAT has been altererd over the years!! I guess it is a 'timeless' design........ By the way, I do not like foot boards unless the whole bed is an antique and it is all an 'all-in-one'; i.e.part of the same piece of furniture as the headboard!
I have a solid wooden bead, with a wooden head and foot- not one piece like in the picture, separate planks like a balcony railing. The foot end tends to get once worn clothes (good enough to wear again before washing but not clean enough to put away) hung over it. The posts are wide enough to sit a cup of tea on if one is so inclined.
We always do the same. From childhood we were told to put lightly worn clothes at the foot of the bed to "dirty out" as mother would say. "There's one more wearing in that", she'd say.
by Rice
(of course, as 2016 was the hottest on record . . . more got worn and washed more frequently, so the bed end has had a rest. lol)
by Rice
I have neither! I'm just using my parents bed base, with 2 very handy drawers on each side for some cloths. (And No, not the same mattress!)
by Miro
Bed head, yes, but timber at the bottom is lower.

This is the type of bed I've always had since childhood.
I'm only now onto my fourth bed!
