When it comes to decorating nothing sets the tone of a bedroom like a beautiful headboard. While stylish headboards can be quite expensive a vibrant array of do-it-yourself options makes imaginative bedroom design a reality. Today we feature 25 of the best DIY headboard ideas for your inspiration.
Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
A creative and unique wooden headboard will never be a hindrance to the style of the bedroom and when used right it can blend in with pretty much any theme that you have going. From the eclectic and the Mediterranean to the breezy beach style and the classy midcentury modern the chic inspirations below prove that you can use one in any bedroom of your choice!
Too much color or chic pattern can spoil the theme of the room easily as the headboard is undoubtedly the most important part of the ‘headboard wall’. Couple it with contemporary nightstands and cool floating shelves and you have a unmistakably modern and majestic bedroom.
A similar and comparably creative example from Juvenile Hall Design shows books open and attached by their covers to the wall above the bed with one simple shelf for a lamp and a plant! That’s one DIY project that might be perfect for any extreme bookworm.
Remember though that the attempt here is to pick and choose décor that complements the headboard. These furnishings should not overpower the image of the exquisite live-edge headboard and take away from its mesmerizing presence. If you have a bed frame that is entirely crafted from raw natural wood then let it shine through as well by keeping the bedding as simple and neutral as possible.
