When it comes to using wood, there are so many variations to try. To create a sleeker, contemporary headboard look, sand and slightly whitewash the wood slats so they don’t feel rough, look dirty or too rustic in appearance. For extra design appeal, try offsetting your headboard for an asymmetric effect like the image below. Take furniture and home accents and give them new life as a headboard. Some furniture-as-headboard ideas include: If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If your dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
For the opulence of fabric without the formality, try simply hanging a quilt, some lace or a curtain behind your bed. You`ll still create a focal point, but it won`t require hours of labor. On the opposite end of the spectrum from the fluid feel of fabric is the fixed structure of metal. This certainly doesn`t mean it is without beauty; a metal headboard can have a romantic feel, such as a wrought-iron gate with artificial flowers intertwined.
For example, you can make a beautifully stained masterpiece or repurpose some chipped vintage door frames to set the tone for your bedroom. Weathered shutters make a perfect headboard if you want a beachy cottage vibe. Wood offers a multitude of options and finish styles at a reasonable cost. Want something a little softer for your DIY headboard? Fabric options have you covered — literally. Whether you prefer the formal indulgence of tufted, buttoned or pintucked headboards or something more casual, fabric offers many soft, indulgent choices for your bedroom.
