STYLISH AND UNIQUE HEADBOARD IDEAS

Designer Navin Kanodia of Spacio shares innovative concepts on how you can style your bedroom with unique headboards for your bed.

 

Functional Backdrop

Make the bed a focal point by creating a wall-length headboard that features favorite decorative accessories. Punches of bold pinks and greens are toned down with black furnishings, creating a  sophisticated, yet fun, bedroom retreat.

Simple and Neutral

Create dramatic vertical impact by taking the headboard to the ceiling. Designer Navin Kandodia uses the two-toned headboard to help distinguish the sleeping area from the sitting area.

Screen Masterpiece

Headboards can still make an impact in a monochromatic color scheme. Find one with a mixture of textures and finishes to add interest. Here, designer Praveen Kanodia used an elegant wooden screen with a metallic sheen.

Refresh the Classics

Try a twist on the traditional upholstered headboard. Instead of the tufted approach, Navin suggested to create a grid of squares covered in tan fabric for the head of this bed

Storage Smarts

A wall of shelving not only acts as a sleek headboard, but it also maximizes the storage in this bedroom.

A Fresh Canvas

Add a splash of color to a muted or white bedroom with a favorite painting hung over the bed. Be sure to hang it high enough so the pillows won’t rest against the canvas.

Graduated, Padded Headboard

For a unique headboard, find a favorite fabric in three shades. Attach batting to three different-sized pieces of plywood then wrap each piece in one of the fabrics.

Canopy Chic

Extend the headboard with a fabric canopy for a truly dramatic impact. Designer Praveen Kanodia used a neutral striped fabric with an accent panel of metallic red to contrast with the blue walls.

Artfully Designed

An inexpensive option for a headboard is to define the space with framed pieces of artwork. In the picture below, two small pieces of art above the bed and flanked the bed with two display cabinets have been used to add style to the bedroom design.
