The headboard is the main element of the bedroom, and the bedroom looks great when the focus is on the bed. I often see bedrooms where too many disparate elements disturb the harmony of the room. And yet, you have everything you need to make the headboard look its best. Here are ten ways to do it, very simple and reasonably priced!
1. Buy your headboard
Similar in size to our bed, this headboard is perfect to give it interest. It can be installed on the bed base, or simply fixed to the wall. We make sure to add beautiful bedside tables with large decorative lamps to top it all off.
2. Making your headboard
As this headboard is custom-made, you can play with the dimension, focusing on the height, and opting for width to crown the bed, as well as the bedside tables.
3. Use moldings
Moldings are also a solution that can give multiple impressive results on your headboard.
4. Install colored frames
An affordable and very effective solution for a single headboard! Simply choose one or two colors to match the bedding, and go with paint and masking tape. The effect is striking!
5. Choosing an accent color for the bed wall
I often use this trick to customize the headboard. Simply choose a neutral color for all the walls and the ceiling, then choose an accent color that is applied to the wall where the bed is placed. Then simply add large cushions on the bed and high-impact lamps on the bedside tables.

6. Add a different coating for the wall of the bed
By incorporating a different covering, as well as a different color (as described above), you give a striking impact to the bed and the wall will be an eye-catcher. And with the right bedding arrangements, this wall will give the headboard the spotlight!
7. Place a large canvas over the bed
You have a very small budget? Consider adding a large canvas, which, once positioned above the bed, will provide a focal point while giving your bed great presence.
8. Place the bed between two windows
When the room offers us two symmetrical windows, with sufficient space for the bed in between, it is ideal. With a beautiful covering, your windows will crown your headboard beautifully.
9. Align the bed under a window
Another way to give the headboard some presence is to place it directly under a window. The latter, nicely dressed in drapery, can then offer a very nice view!
10. Harmonizing fabrics
You can play with fabrics, as in the example here, where we used fabric rods and panels to create a headboard that stretches all the way up to the ceiling! Striking!
I know that decorating your bedroom often comes last, to the benefit of the other rooms in the house. I hope these tips will inspire you. They will definitely make your bedroom and headboard look like a boutique hotel, and make you feel good when you walk in the door.
