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.
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.
More often than not, people struggle with trying to make the most of limited storage in their bedrooms. One surefire way to combat that issue is by bringing it to the forefront of your design rather than hiding it away. By incorporating these storage solutions into your decor, you can let your belongings serve stylish double-duty. To give your master bedroom a lasting, stately design, consider investing in a built-in closet-organization system. These can be customized to your space and needs. If you prefer a less-permanent solution, open shelving can give the space a modern feel. A foot trunk also works if your taste veers toward the traditional.
Proper wall art is vital to every space, but it may be even more important in bedrooms where there are typically fewer design elements to add visual interest. Whenever possible, use wall decor to anchor each of the distinct function areas in your space, such as above the bed, beside some seating and in the dressing space. Then, add other artwork to any walls that feel too blank. When choosing the pieces that will decorate your walls, try to keep variety in mind. Play with colors, textures and artistic materials for the artwork itself, and don't be afraid to mix different sizes, shapes and frame styles.
