Electric art. Here’s another way to include your alternative headboard in your bedroom’s lighting design. This rectangular shape has the familiarity of a conventional headboard but the multiple glowing lights are a clever twist. A neon sign mounted above the bed would provide a similar effect.

Stretch out. This off-center headboard does a great job of creating the illusion of more space in this compact bedroom. Rather than stopping at the edge of the mattress it continues beyond it on one side to fill the back wall — tricking you into seeing a king-size rather than a double bed. If you apply the same rule to clothes it works in much the same way as the classic illusion of skin-colored shoes equaling longer legs: By not breaking up a line you naturally extend it. And here the headboard also houses a reading light plus there’s space for a little table.

World map. I love the idea of using a large mural as the backdrop to a bed especially in a smaller space where it can distract from the diminutive size of the room. Here a vintage world map imparts grandeur to this masculine bedroom and adds some faded neutral color to balance the cool steely grays.

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.

Create pattern with padding. Headboard pattern doesn’t have to come from the print or weave of upholstery. Here horizontally stitched padding maximizes comfort and introduces a motif. If you want to make a bedroom feel sumptuous be inspired by the tactile fabric and width of this design which gives the room five-star-hotel style.

Combine patterns. In this room the curvaceous headboard’s floral-and-foliage motif provides a contrast to the sharp lines of a striped wall behind the bed. Curves are easy on the eye and the softer pattern plays up the comfort of the bed. Get the look by choosing a headboard shape that features curves rather than a regular rectangular. Also there’s an art to mixing two very different patterns: To avoid a jarring vision choose prints that share at least one color and whose shapes vary in scale or intricacy.

Play and display. This headboard unit works all sorts of wonders providing enough space for a lot of clothes storage around its edges. I also like the way it creates a tidy recess for matching built-in bedside tables — sizable ones to boot. The really good-looking part though is the shelves inside the recess which provide heaps of room for a movable art display or collection of treasured photographs. And making the wood dark and moody lets the lamplight create a supercozy soporific glow.

Build in a shelf. These boxy salvaged-wood headboards give this twin guest room a warm atmosphere and a grown-up feel. But they are also chunky enough to provide a much-needed horizontal surface in a teeny space where almost everything apart from the beds is wall hung. A table or shelving at the far end of the bedroom could get in a guest’s way so the extra space created by the headboards is a design luxury. And in a guest room especially a place for a welcoming vase of flowers is worth creating. The ideal headboard shelf should be deep enough for a cup of tea a pair of glasses a mini lamp or a book.
