Stay sharp. This room turns the pairing of floral headboard and geometric pillows on its head with painterly blooms on the pillows and a tailored design on the headboard. In a warm color the headboard ensures that the room is a cozy haven without compromising the smartness of the design. Want to make a high-ceilinged room feel warmer? Follow this room’s lead with a cocooning dark neutral for the walls. With crisp white for the ceiling and molding the period features are still noticeable.

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.

Incorporate an outline. In this room velvet edges the patterned upholstery of the headboard creating a frame for the delicate design within. The texture along with the black-lacquered bedside tables and a gold-and-cream wall covering ups the opulence of the bedroom. Contrast piping is an alternative if you like the idea of a headboard border for a more formal look.

Fireplace surround. Another item to repurpose as a headboard and one that’s even more unexpected than vintage shutters is a fireplace mantle. If you’re lucky you’ll score an oversized unit from some old Victorian mansion into whose recesses a bed fits just perfectly. If you really love the idea but can’t find an antique model to accommodate a king-size bed you could always have one made by a carpenter to fit your mattress’ exact dimensions. This romantic Los Angeles bedroom shows off the best of both worlds with a traditional tufted headboard fitted inside the surround.

Canopy with headboard. In the 13th century the canopy or tester was born out of necessity and then popular for its grandeur. The canopy was suspended from the ceiling beams using ropes and fabric was then draped over to act as insulation against the bitter winter cold. When gentry traveled between their city and country homes they frequently took beds with them. Portable beds were known as trussing beds. Staff was assigned to dismantle transport and then assemble them again. The canopy headboard shown is a modern take on a medieval design. The scallop edging on the canopy harmonizes with the timber fretwork on the headboard. The amount of fabric and the detail in the canopy design make this a more expensive style. If you find an inexpensive fabric that you like both sides of you won′t need to line it which can keep costs down.

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.

Fourposter with headboard. The 15th century saw the invention of the fourposter bed. With or without draping fabric this design became the rock star of the furniture world with only the truly wealthy owning such a status symbol. Ash mahogany and oak were just a few of the timbers used during this time. With reproduction furniture the harder the timber species the more expensive the piece will generally be. More intricate designs tend to add to the overall cost too. This Juliet-style reproduction fourposter with canopy and headboard has delicate gold-painted details giving the room a worldly sophisticated feel.

Create cupboards. The designer of this cute cottage-y room in a converted Cotswolds England house has made nice use of the narrow alcoves on either side of the bed. Pretty but hardly a new idea right? What makes this design sing is the simple way the rustic headboard has been built as part of this wooden architecture. Plain vertical planks not only connect the spaces at the head of the bed making the arrangement look as if it’s been there forever but the uprights over the bed are cleverly topped with a narrow shelf just wide enough for paperbacks and a framed picture. This idea is great if you don’t have much space for bedside tables or don’t want to clutter them up. Just make sure the edge of the shelf is flush with the rest of the headboard or it will be very uncomfortable when you’re sitting up in bed.
