Found objects. A headboard is a great opportunity for self-expression because the options for materials and design are endless. A collection of vintage oars mounted to the wall is just the right look in this rustic lake house bedroom.

Take the rail way. This isn’t so much a headboard as a built-in storage unit with a bed tucked inside. It shows that shelving isn’t the only open storage that can be built into a headboard. Here there’s also space for a hanging rail. It’s not full wardrobe scale but it’s good enough for last night’s clothes a pair of bathrobes or an overnight guest’s garments. Above there’s space for extra blankets towels or bulky luggage while directly over the bed there’s room for a lamp. Using the same color throughout the room has prevented this multicompartment headboard from looking too crowded.

Upholstered headboard. Upholstered headboards (or stuffers as they were originally known) became popular during the 17th century as the demand for comfort increased and draping fabric on canopy beds died out. The bedroom became more private during this time and the need to show off had moved to other rooms in the home. The choice of fabric is as important as the design of an upholstered headboard. Oils from hair and skin can quickly damage and stain a headboard. Leather is an extremely durable fabric but can be spendy. Some vinyl fabrics look just as good and can cost much less. The design of the button-tufted upholstered headboard shown considers both genders in this bedroom and has a sophisticated and elegant look.

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.

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.

Reflect the window. Here’s another canny use of mirror in a headboard. In this room the effect is window-like as the multipaned headboard echoes the design of the French doors. It adds light and space for sure but also creates an interesting focal point in an otherwise neutral simply decorated space. This is a great way to build in a striking design detail without adding color or visual clutter.

Built-in canopy. This hybrid canopy-headboard has a lot going for it but the most striking feature is its integration into the room’s lighting design. Two bedside pendants provide focused light for nighttime reading but the soft glow emanating from the sides of the wood headboard and overhang boost the room’s romantic ambiance. The decor’s emphasis on texture more than color and pattern ensure that the custom bed and lighting take the spotlight.

Divide store and conquer. This headboard houses lights shelves and drawers but look behind the bed to see its other purpose. Pretty ingeniously this headboard doubles as a low room divider. The area behind the bed is almost a walk-in wardrobe and allows the bed to remain pointing at the windows. There’s just enough room here to open the wardrobe doors but sliding doors would work in a tighter 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.
