5 Awesome Headboard Ideas To Bring Life To Your Bedroom

Although the bedroom doesn't require one, headboards are a great way to add some depth to your personal space. Headboards can really bring the bedroom together as a whole and complete the overall space. Deciding that you want a headboard is the easy part. It's deciding the type and style of headboard that can be difficult.

There are a number of options that you can choose from when selecting your headboard during a home remodel:

1. Wood Headboards

Whether it's reclaimed wood, new wood or pallets, wood headboards add warmth to the bedroom with its natural appearance. For more character, reclaimed wood that you have stained yourself is perfect. If you're looking for a more rustic and less expensive approach, you can create an eccentric look with the wooden pieces from a pallet. For more of a contemporary appearance, you'll likely want to use new wood to create a headboard.

2. Wall-Painted Headboards

Who says your headboard has to actually be made out of something like wood, steel or plastic? Your headboard usually serves a decorative purpose rather than an actual functional purpose. Therefore, you just need something that will visually draw the eye to it. For that reason, you may want to consider painting your headboard onto the wall. You create the illusion of a headboard without actually wasting any space for the real thing.

3. Chalkboard Headboards

Chalkboards are becoming very popular in homes today. One reason for this is because they can easily be personalized. You can write an inspirational message on them or draw your own design on them. Alternatively, you can leave it completely blank. If you don't want an actual chalkboard with a frame as a headboard, you could simply opt to use chalkboard paint on the wall.

4. Mirror Headboards

Headboards made out of mirrors are very fancy and elegant. With the right frame, you can add even more elegance to the headboard. Despite their sophistication, mirror headboards provide a bit of a mystery to the bedroom decor. Plus, mirrors make the room feel more open and spacious, which is great for smaller bedrooms.

5. Door Headboards

If you like to use recycled products or want to add a bit of a vintage or rustic touch to your bedroom, then an old door would be the perfect idea. Depending on the style and color of the door, you could create a headboard that matches a variety of decor from rustic to modern.

For example, you could opt for newer style doors that are painted completely white for a sophisticated and elegant look. On the other hand, you could opt for an old barn door for a rustic appearance.

When it comes to completing your bedroom look and adding a bit of life to it with a headboard, the options at your disposal are truly endless. For more information on how headboards can complete your remodel, consult with your contractor.  

About Me

Making Your Remodel Easier

Years ago, my wife and I had our home remodeled and experienced a lot of difficulties. We didn't plan as well as we should have, and we ended up changing our minds quite a bit and causing a lot of delays and extra costs. We were also trying to live in the house during the remodel, which made life pretty stressful for us, and probably for our contractors, too. When we decided that we were going remodel again this year, I wanted things to be different. I took what I learned from all of the things that went wrong the last time, and set about doing things differently this time. The results were amazing. We're so much happier with this remodel. I decided to put what I learned about smooth home remodeling into a blog so that others could learn from our mistakes and successes.
