Lets get a little more creative with headboards, shall we? Enough already with the boring headboards that come with the bed and lets spice up your room! A client of mine contacted me and told me that he and his wife were given a queen sized bed frame and mattress for one of their guest bedrooms. And since the bed doesn’t have a headboard, he wanted to know what some options would be for creating one. When you are designing your room, consider making the headboard the focal point. What does the viewer see when they walk in the room? Hopefully something exciting that compliments the room! Here I have posted some ideas for fun and creative headboards that are sure to spice up any boring bed frame.
Consider using pieces of art to use in lieu of a headboard. Choose art pieces that are nicely framed that fit the room’s style.
Painting a headboard on your wall is a very inexpensive way to add a trompe l’ oeil effect. Draw a template on the wall first and then paint in the headboard.
A shelf can offer a casual headboard solution as well as provide a space for accessories.
A wallpaper headboard can be just as inexpensive and easy as the painted headboard. Find an interesting wallpaper that you like that compliments the room, make a template and then attach it to the wall.
Wrap a piece of plywood with fabric and attach it to the wall. Consider using several different fabrics to add more interest.
Use a curtain and a curtain rod to act as a headboard. Attach the curtain rod to the wall and let the curtain fabric drape behind the bed frame.
