Headboard Style

It's time to talk bedroom lovin, ya'll. NO, not like that! My ultimate favorite thing in a bedroom is a headboard. For one thing, they are generally the focal point of the room They also say a lot about someones style.

One of the more original ideas is to use a room divider. You can find these at nearly any home decor store and can really make a nice feature. Room dividers come in a variety of materials and styles to fit any room decor; there are upholstered panels, wooden slated doors, metal welded designs, acrylic panels... the list goes on.

Perhaps one of the easiest options is art. Whether you go with a multitude of images, frames, and sizes or go with a single piece, really reflects the feeling of the room. More eclectic or traditional rooms may use several pieces, while a contemporary or modern room would typically have one.

For those with a smaller room - or if you just like glam - choose an over sized mirror. The mirror will not only help make the space appear larger but it will also reflect lighting which will make the space brighter. Lit candles anywhere in the room will also reflect and imaging how romantic that could be. Frame out your mirror in a style that matches the room in color and ornamentation.

For those who don't mind a little DIY project, an upholstered headboard is a great option. First determine the size you want; it could be made to fit the width of the bed or extend beyond for a contemporary look. Next choose a fabric you love that compliments the room. Cut a piece of plywood, mdf, or particle board to the right size (your board does not need to be of excellent quality, it just needs to be ridged and cut straight). Use spray adhesive to attach batting to the board and trim off any excess. It's up to you if you fold the batting over the edges or trim right at the board. With a staple gun, pull your fabric tight over the board and attach to the back. Make sure your corners are neat. The headboard can now be attached to the wall with standard brackets.

Mobiles are not just for babies. An amazing mobile or chandelier can act as a great headboard and really create drama in the space. Use in tandem with a traditional headboard for extra elegance.

Another easy DIY is fabric panels. Hang curtain rods and curtains for a floor to ceiling headboard. Go the extra mile by attaching the curtain rod to the ceiling about 6-12" from the wall and drape the fabric behind the bed. This will create a whimsy and cozy feel.

What type of headboard do you currently have? What type of headboard exists in your dream bedroom? Tell me in the comments below!
