A Batch of Unique, Alternative Headboards: #1

Maybe your bedroom is too small for a big and bulky bed with a headboard. Maybe you want something a little different and stylish to perk of your personal place. Maybe you can’t even afford or don’t want to spend the extra money on a bed with a headboard. Whatever the case, there are so many different ways to incorporate various decor in one’s space that it doesn’t matter! And most of the time, the alternative options are the most stylish choices!

Today we want to share our first batch of unique, alternative headboards. Some are DIY, some can be bought and there’s definitely a style for you and your home floating about out there waiting  to be snagged!!

1. Tapestries add length.

This is such an easy and relaxed option and maybe even one of my favorites! Using a tapestry as your headboard not only adds length to your wall but you can literally create any type of style depending on the print and design of the fabric. Choose a funky print for something more unique or choose a solid for something more contemporary. There are a lot of different directions you can go, so have fun.

2. Re-purposed wood add texture.

Adding slabs of wood takes a typical headboard to a whole different level of style. It’s definitely more organic than the usual headboard and much more vintage and eclectic. Use re-purposed wood in different colors, shapes and textures to create something wonderful.

3. Strands of beads add sparkle.

Using strands of beads as a headboard definitely creates surprise and adds sparkle. This is a great idea for a super feminine feel or set up in the right way, something quite modern. Use more strands for a defined look or less for a more funky feel.

4. Screens add a design element.

Using screens as your headboard are not only more inexpensive option (buy one at a flea market!) but they can add a posh, design element unlike any other. Depending on the intricacies of the particular screen the room can go in a more shabby chic vibe or something more fashionable and artistic.

5. Mirrors add space and light.

This is perfect for a bedroom that needs to at least “look” like it has more space than it actually does. Using mirrors as a headboard opens up the room and adds more light to a small, enclosed space.
