Add a soft touch of texture to your bedroom by hanging a rug on the wall as a headboard alternative. A standard 5×8 rug is wide enough to match a queen size, 60 wide mattress. An Indian dhurrie-style rug (shown above) is the easiest type of rug to work with, since it’s lightweight and thin. Find a unique wall panel or room screen and hang it as a headboard. Geometrically-patterned screens or room dividers create the most contemporary impact. For extra contrast, remove the screen's boring paper backing and paint the screen's frame in a color that ties into your bedroom's decor. There are many types of headboards you can create using fabric.
The eye is immediately drawn to the silhouetted pine tree decals, but the rustic accents in the rest of this nursery (like the unique crib textiles) make it feel like a modern cabin. The tree decals are a bit more subtle in this nursery, where white pops on gray walls. Colorful birds add playfulness and warmer hues. Got some plain white walls? Why not dress them up with some watermelon decals? Carrying the whimsy of the walls are heavily patterned beds in warm colors, and a modern nightstand both kids and adults go crazy for.
Speaking of…under the bed storage such as rollaway drawers is always helpful in creating more space and can hold seasonal or limited use items. Storage chests with cushions can be used as a seat to a play table as well as conceal a mountain of toys. A wall unit with drawers can pull double duty as a dresser and desk. Shelving is super convenient for toy organization as it doesn‘t take up a lot of space and can be placed above dressers, desks, even above the door for hardly used items. Similarly, placing a bookshelf at the foot of the bed doesn‘t take up valuable wall space and may even give you another surface near the bed for a lamp or nighttime book. For clothing, wall and door hooks are helpful for every-day go-to items. In the closet, install two rods (i.e. double hanging) so each child can have separate hanging space. Regardless of your design challenge, when creating a shared room for your little ones if you stick to resourceful, efficient, fun and creative choices, you‘ll no doubt create a bedroom your kids will love!
