Can`t decide on just one color? Try arranging paint swatches in a way that appeals to your eye. Art-based projects allow you to make a signature piece that is often easily changeable; they also work for any budget. There is no reason to feel limited to the headboards that are available for purchase. Let your creativity shine in a centerpiece for your bedroom. With a little elbow grease and a lot of inspiration, you can create the perfect piece for your bedroom and your budget. Which of these DIY headboard ideas speaks to you?
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.
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.
A cozy apartment exhibiting diverse textures in Kiev has a bedroom that catches your attention immediately. Designed by Igor Sirotov, this light-flooded space showcases a use of dark textures, creating a sophisticated feel. Illuminated by tall windows with a long, alluring window seat on one side and artificial lighting defining architectural lines on the other, this robust bedroom design supports the use of dark hues. Everything falls into place when you know how to achieve great lighting in dark-colored interiors. Masculine bedroom design takes advantage of fascinating forest views in this luxury mountain home flashing mid-century modern appeal. Dark-framed windows luring the outdoors in, a fireplace that can be enjoyed from bed, and warm and welcoming wood walls as a buffer between the forest and your dreams are elements that make this space inspiring.
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!
