Wood slab. While many headboards are primarily decorative they become functional when you add reading lights. Wood provides a more solid surface for mounting than fabric or metal; this live-edge slab imparts a nice balance of modern and rustic to this Colorado 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.

Combination headboard. Regardless of the style or shape a headboard will help anchor your room′s design. If you need inspiration for the rest of the room′s furnishings start with the headboard. By taking ideas from the past mixing different materials and modern methods you can achieve stunning results. This wood-framed headboard and base with shagreen panels and bone trim takes a few ancient design ideas (some previously mentioned) and creates a smart contemporary look for this bedroom.

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.

Set the tone. The boho pattern of this headboard works with the stenciled pattern on the walls a geometric rug and stripes in a combination that’s colorful and pretty. Borrow the idea of a winged headboard like this one to create a super-comfy spot for bedtime reading.

Iron headboard. The beauty strength and value of the iron headboard and base are cherished by all those who own one. In the later part of the 19th century artisans hand poured and polished iron bed frames. When World War I started they stopped as the iron was needed to make weapons. The end of this war saw handmade items replaced with assembly line products. New iron headboards now come in many different powder-coated colors and finishes. If custom is important to you then this is the way to go. Make sure your headboard is made from cold-rolled steel as it has a higher tensile strength and will not dent like hot-rolled steel. Antique iron headboards are not cheap but they do come with a real sense of history. A new iron headboard is comparable in price to a standard timber headboard and base that don′t have a lot of carving detail.

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.

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.

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.

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.
