10 Beautiful wooden headboards for a warm and inviting bedroom décor

A while ago we presented you a large selection of DIY headboards (check out “34 DIY headboard ideas”). It included lots of designs and ideas. Among those there were some very beautiful and interesting wooden headboards and they looked especially appealing. So, starting from there, we decided to now focus solely on wooden headboards and we’ve prepared for you a selection of beautiful and chic designs to take a look at.

This is a soft modern bedroom interior that still features the usual geometric shapes associated with modern design but this time combined with organic shapes and simple textures. The wooden headboard is very simple and adds warmth to the décor while also maintaining an airy and minimalist look. The shelves replace the nightstands and free up floor space

Here we have a traditional bedroom interior with an industrial touch. It features solid pieces of furniture and a few vintage details. The industrial hanging pendant lights are simple and functional and the headboard creates a more rustic and cozy look. It’s a beautiful boy’s room with a masculine décor but still inviting.

If you prefer something a little more exotic, this bedroom can give you some ideas. It’s a simple bedroom but has some few powerful accent elements. For example, that ornate wooden room screen makes a very interesting and original headboard. It somewhat matches the bedding and, along with the bright yellow walls, follows a warm color palette. It’s a spicy bedroom décor but it’s also simple enough to be relaxing.

If you really want to turn the bedroom into a relaxing sanctuary, you can take some inspiration from this one. It features wood-paneled walls and a wooden ceiling, elements that instantly make the room feel very cozy and warm. To maintain the image, the headboard is also made of wood but has a darker finish just to stand out. It has an organic shape with soft curves and matches the nightstand.

Even though wood is a material usually associated with rustic, vintage and traditional decors, it can also be used to create a modern or contemporary look. For example, you can opt for a very stylish and simple wooden headboard made out of square panels. Opt for black for a strong contrast against the white walls and for a matching bed.

You can also have a rustic headboard and, in this case, you can even make it yourself. Use reclaimed barn wood for that. Connect the pieces at various heights for a unique design and a playful look. You can also use different types of wood, different colors and finishes if you prefer something a little more eye-catching.

Here’s another example of a headboard made from repurposed boards. This one has a simpler and more traditional design. The reclaimed wood used for the headboard adds a vintage touch to the décor and also brings some warmth into the room. It’s simple but it’s just what a bedroom needs in order to feel cozy and inviting.

This is another very beautiful wooden headboard. Notice that it’s made from a single piece of wood and that it has an organic shape. Even though it’s very simple, the rest of the bedroom décor is even simpler and this allows the headboard to be the star and to stand out. It’s a naturally elegant focal point.

Usually, wooden headboards maintain the material’s natural color. But if you don’t want the headboard to stand out and you simply want it to be a part of the décor without being a focal point, you can paint it in a neutral color such as white and make it blend in. The texture should be enough to make it special.

And, of course, it would be impossible to talk about wooden headboards without mentioning pallets. This is a headboard made out of two wooden pallets put side by side. They have slightly different colors and textures but this way they seem more natural. They integrate nicely in this eclectic bedroom and the decorations accentuate they simplicity.
