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.

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.

shiplap with a twist. The designers of this wood-paneled bedroom could have stopped at a single layer of paneling and the room would have been a cozy dream space but instead they wrapped some of the planks with faux grass to add a dose of color and another layer of texture to the room.

Add a mirrored border. This lavish custom headboard has a bit of a 1930s Hollywood boudoir look to it; don’t you think? You can almost picture Jean Harlow or Carole Lombard padding about the room in a silky robe and high-heeled slippers. But back to the headboard: This design is more than just Tinseltown glamorous. The built-in mirror bounces light from the windows around the room and plays with spatial perception as it appears to offer a glimpse of another room behind it fooling the eye into seeing a far larger space than is there. This idea could work wonders in a compact or dark room as well as one needing a little stardust.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
