Whether made of velvet, wood, or leather – a bed head visually enhances the sleeping place; here, you will find 11 design ideas and instructions for DIY.
A bare wall behind the bed usually looks dreary and uncharitable. The sleeping place looks more inviting with a bed headboard. Whether purchased or self-built – the design possibilities of the headboard are great. We give 11 inspirational ideas.
Leather upholstery for country style
The most common and comfortable is an upholstered backboard, which comes in all colors and materials. Make sure that the bed head visually matches the rest of the interior. Here, a leather headboard was chosen, which will perfectly match the rustic style of the room.
Interchangeable wall towels
Much cheaper is a blanket or a cloth as a bedhead. Especially in teenagers’ rooms, you can see more and more often wall scarves with traditional mandalas and oriental symbols. You can attach the clothes to the wall, for example, with the help of thumbtacks. However, curtain clips are better – so the cloth can be taken down or replaced anytime without leaving traces on the wall.
Wood – naturally beautiful
Beds are usually made of wood. Therefore, it is no wonder that headboards are also made of natural materials. Depending on your preferences, you can paint the wood as you like. Those who furnish in the Scandi look prefer natural, light wood. Materials such as cotton, linen, and fur fit perfectly with it.
Stucco for that certain something
If you make your own bed headboard, you can be creative – why not simply attach stucco moldings to the back wall and use them to stage a headboard? The idea is inexpensive and quick to implement, plus you create a charming flair.
Upcycling in the bedroom
In upcycling, waste products and useless objects are recycled according to the motto “from old to new”. For this bed head, an old picket fence was used without further ado. The “shabby chic” was continued with the side table, which consists of the same fence slats.
OSB boards – not only suitable for construction.
This example shows that OSB boards are not only used in house construction. In combination with light pastel colors and indoor plants, the board fits perfectly into the room and gives it a natural look. For an OSB laying board with the dimensions 22mm x 250 cm x 125 cm you have to calculate with about 30 euros.
Headboard with a difference – the semi-circular woven bed headboard is a real eye-catcher in the bedroom and goes well with folklore-style furnishings: mix patterns and materials and create a cheerful ambiance where you will love to retreat.
Old doors with new function
Do you still have old doors left over from the renovation? Perfect! Then you can continue to use them as a bedhead. Here, white coffered doors were placed behind the bed – a charming idea, especially in houses with country style.
Wall porch for more space
In this case, a wall porch acts as a bedhead and a storage space. If you renovate your house, you can plan such a project in time and do without side tables. How to dress up the ledge depends on your interior style. For example, you can use wooden slats or wallpaper on the wall. For the cover board, as in this case, you can take off the color or choose a different material.
Elegance from velvet
This curved headboard looks especially elegant. Its color perfectly matches the rest of the room. For example, velvet is a suitable material for such a bedhead.
DIY: wall tattoo
Those who like to implement DIY projects can, for example, work with wall tattoos in the children’s room. The advantage: they can be removed at any time.
