Just position it against your bedroom wall push your bed up against it and voila! You now have a great looking headboard that also gives you extra storage for all your books and other accessories. Here are just some of the different ways people have been taking advantage of this clever idea.
Got a twin bed? No problem — bookshelf headboards are great for kids’ rooms student dorm rooms and even guest rooms! Just grab a more narrow bookshelf that makes a better fit for a smaller bed like these two examples from Small Rooms on Tumblr and Susanna Carter on Pinterest.
Although they look good in all shapes and sizes there’s something really satisfying about this bookshelf headboard from Potted Store that fits so perfectly next to the window in this bedroom (along with being the exact same width of the bed).
Add to it styles such as industrial bohemian and shabby chic that also invite the slab headboard gleefully and you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
In a modern world that is dominated by shiny polished surfaces concrete stone and glass the sight of decor or accessories that bring the magic of wood is always welcome! Wood is one element that can lend a touch of natural charm to an otherwise artificial space that seems sterile and unwelcome.
(This is the way it should be!) Bedrooms in white and gray are unsurprisingly the popular choice here but you can even couple this headboard with bright hues like purple and blue. Do stay away from an orange or yellow backdrop though as the wooden headboard might simply be lost in a backdrop with color that is very similar to it.
