Even the industrial feel of corrugated sheet metal can be softened by an intricate decorative cut. Metal may not be appealing to every taste, but there are a lot of options for the DIYer to make a signature headboard from this versatile material. Even more than the creative potential in the first three categories, free-form headboards give you endless design freedom. You can use almost anything: pillows grouped into a display, pieces of driftwood or bamboo against the wall, vintage books adhered to a piece of backing.
Reddit user Radamshome, a father of two, took on the massive task of transforming his daughter’s ordinary bedroom into a fairytale land, complete with a life-sized treehouse she could sit inside to read her books.

Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you‘ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night‘s sleep without one waking the other. Creating a play area that both siblings can enjoy, even simultaneously, is super helpful, especially for tired mommies and daddies. Floor mats, cushions and soft larger items like a rocking horse and tents are perfect to outline the area and fun for both to play in. Place your older child`s toys in accessible storage containers, but higher than the floor so your youngest can‘t easily touch it.
