A wall mural or painting can be a great headboard. If you're wanting a softer more padded effect, paint or print your art on a large canvas, mount it to a frame and pad the backside for a custom, upholstered art headboard. Use a collection of smaller art store canvases to create an artsy gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color for a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown below. You could also used recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. Paint the sides in a contrasting color to add dimension.
For example, you may want to have a white bed foundation with a selection of tropical blue accents in the summer and warm rich accents including a faux fur throw for the winter like the images below.
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.
