Make your bed the focal point of the room with these creative headboard ideas. Think outside the box and make your own headboard. One easy and inexpensive idea is to frame the bed with photo frames. A large painting or piece of art hung over the bed can add a splash of color to your room.
Wall Unit: Maybe you want to make the entire wall the headboard where you can add decorative accessories, or incorporate storage space or bookshelves.
Screens: Using screens or room dividers as a headboard adds interesting depth and texture to your room. You can also find great vintage screens at thrift stores for a different look. If you want to go for a more vintage feel there are endless possibilities at thrift stores such as iron art. Make it your own by adding some paint.
Doors/ Pallets: For a more rustic look you can stain or paint an old door or two. Another inexpensive idea is using pallets. Stain the pallet to enhance the natural look of the wood or if you want something different, add some color with paint. For a softer look, try covering the pallet with fabric.
Fabric: The upholstered look is easy to achieve with some plywood, padding, and fabric of your choice. Make a dramatic statement with the headboard reaching the ceiling. Another inexpensive trick is to hang a decorative curtain as a headboard. You will have endless fabric choices to complement your room décor.
Paint: You can even “fake” a headboard with a wall decal or by painting your own.
