Next to the bed, the headboard is the star of the bedroom. And its decorative capacity has no limits! Give it the prominence it deserves by choosing from the following original bed headboard proposals.
A HORIZONTAL FRIEZE TO WIDEN
Do you want to give a rustic touch to your bedroom? Create a different headboard, like this one in the image, with stripped wooden slats, and that serves as a wainscot. Its horizontal position will make the room appear visually wider.
THE WALL IS THE HEADBOARD
Combining paint and wallpaper is an excellent bet to give your headboard another look. The interior designer Mónica Garrido has turned the wall itself into a headboard and has finished it off with a mini shelf to place small objects. The rest has been covered up to the ceiling in Japanese paper that imitates wood and gives it a warm finish.
RENEW THE UPHOLSTERY
If you are tired of always seeing the same headboard and would like to update it, why not upholster it? Choose a fabric you like — there are precious ones on sale — and commission the upholsterer to do the job. Take advantage of any scraps that are leftover to make some covers and line the cushions. The result will be perfect!
WITH RAW BOARDS
If you like handcrafted finishes, you will love this idea suggested by Leroy Merlin. Make an original headboard with two rough boards that look like they just came from the sawmill. Ideal if you want to give a rustic look to your bedroom. You just have to fix the boards on two slats and fix these to the wall.
BOARDS VERTICALLY TO LENGTHEN
What if instead of putting some wooden boards horizontally, you place them vertically? You will give more height to the room. Aim for this tip, if yours has low ceilings. The decorator has chosen for this bedroom a light wood that contrasts with the darker paint on the wall.
If you want to give your bedroom fresh and sustainable air, add a natural fiber headboard. The esparto ones are a trend! But those made of wicker, rattan, or bamboo are also valid. Don’t you think they are super original?
FROM THE WINDOWS, TO THE WALL
If the screen that you managed so much, you no longer find it funny or if you have decided that the shutters will pass away, but you feel sorry to get rid of them because they are in good condition, give them a new life! In this bedroom, mesh shutters have been installed as a spectacular headboard. And the truth is that they look super cool with that two-color game of beige and maroon on the textiles!
You see them continuously on Instagram. Yes, we are talking about hacks or how to give a new use to a piece of furniture or object for which it had not been created. Do you want an original headboard?
If your thing is rustic style and you are a fan of wood, decorate the headboard with colored slats with an aged effect.
