A bedroom without a headboard is like the perfect outfit without the right shoes. If your bed is missing the all-important headboard element, take inspiration from our headboard ideas and add a big design statement your room tonight. Headboards can sometimes be thought of as big and bulky, however, regardless of the size of the room, a headboard doesn’t need to take up much space at all. In fact, if your bedroom is small or crowded, getting rid of a bedroom frame and replacing it with a headboard is a great way to reclaim valuable space in your bedroom. If you’re on a budget, the recycled headboard is often the coolest and least expensive headboard style. Grab some inspiration and take a trip to your local thrift store for supplies. Some headboard ideas made from recycled objects include:
Cut a thin wood panel in the size you'd like for your headboard, spray glue some foam batting to pad the wood a bit and wrap your fabric nicely in the front while stapling in the back. Headboard ideas that are contemporary include creating a long headboard panel that not only frames your bed, but your nightstand, too, like the room in the image above. Another non-traditional way to create a cool, modern headboard is by using the panels unconventionally. Hang the panel vertically instead of horizontally. Group two narrow, vertical panels with a gap in-between. The headboard design above is not only different but changes with the bedding. The homeowners remove the coordinating striped runners and replace them with new ones that go with the fresh, new bedding.
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!
