Lighten up. There’s plenty of space for a bedside lamp in this room but thanks to this bed design there’s no need. If you have an old-fashioned wrought iron bed like this or indeed any style with bars it’s easy to weave fairy or garland lights around the headboard. It’s a playful touch for a teenager’s room or a creative decorative detail in an eclectic adult space. Just make sure to plug your lights into a socket with an on-off switch rather than an extension lead meaning they would need to be unplugged to be turned off. Or you can buy rope lights with in-line switches.
Whatever overall look and feel you want for your bedroom the right headboard can give you all the rest and relaxation you deserve. Headboards can stand alone or work just as well with a base. With origins dating as far back as ancient Egypt and Greece this pivotal bedroom piece can dramatically alter your bedroom′s comfort and design. Whether you choose iron timber or upholstered a well-designed and well-made headboard can become a lovely heirloom for many generations to come.
Bed cubby. This isn’t so much a headboard as it is a head cubicle. We’re used to seeing beds enveloped by canopies and sheltered by four posters but a lower-profile cubby that cradles the sides of the bed can be just as comforting. I love the way the nightstands nest perfectly into the corners so that the whole bedscape feels like a single unit.
There’s no doubt that adding a headboard to a bed will boost the impact of the natural centerpiece of a bedroom design. Make it a patterned version and the effect is even bigger. Floral or geometric small- or large-scale the prints make these headboards’ presence felt in all the right ways.
Mirror. Mirror mirror on the wall who’s the fairest headboard of all? This standing wall mirror is a strong contender for its charming blend of romance and simplicity. An additional benefit to using a mirror as headboard is its ability to visually open up a space.
Double up. The headboard in this room does sterling work as a display shelf as well as drawing the eye to the bed. With a white background the stylized design complements the crisp white of the bed linen and the overall look is chic and modern. Adding lighting to a solid headboard like this is a real space saver when there’s no room for bedside tables and lamps on both sides.
