Your bedroom shouldn’t just be the place where you sleep. Ideally, the space should feel like somewhere you want to spend your free time. One easy way to achieve that is by adding a seating area that you can use when you don't feel like lounging in bed. As with any seating area, it’s important to identify which function it will fulfill. If you like to curl up with a good book, place a stately armchair next to a bookcase. If you’re all about catching up on your favorite shows, look for a loveseat or daybed that will give you room to stretch out.
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.
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.
