As the main piece of furniture in any bedroom, the bed makes for a great focal point with the headboard as the crowning finish. Instantly update your bedroom's interiors with a fashionable headboard. Here's how...
An upholstered headboard provides a soft and plush backrest for a good read or just sitting up in bed. If you already have an upholstered headboard, you could rework its design with new fabric choices that will give your bedroom a fresh look. If you're after a bold look, go for bright patterns or a textured solid cloth for a subtler take. You may also go the DIY route and make your own upholstered headboard.
The tufted appeal
A tufted headboard also features a soft backrest just like the upholstered headboard, however, it offers a dash of romance and glamour. Deep tufts provide a more luxurious and expensive look, whereas cute buttons impart a youthful appeal.
Add organic appeal in your bedroom with a woven headboard. To pull of this style you'll need typical materials such as leather and natural wood, which impart a warm feel. However, leather provides a softer tactile feature. A woven headboard evokes a carefree vibe reminiscent of the bohemian chic look.
Wood is an all-time favorite material for headboards. Use texture and finish to your advantage by choosing something that fits your bedroom design. Dark stains and smooth finishes evoke handsome appeal perfect for modern and formal designs, whereas light tones and rough textures offer a more laid-back atmosphere.
Lively paint ideas
Update your wooden headboard by painting it a new color - a vibrant hue can instantly liven up your bedroom. Don’t forget to apply a primer before you paint your headboard. For a unique look, you may also opt to add stenciled designs on your headboard.
