 The headboard gives the bed prominence, personality and character. It’s an important element that adds value to room’s decor, but what should we consider when choosing a type of headboard?

 First we must consider the size of the bed, but there are also alternatives that cover not just the head of the bed, but occupy your entire wall. More importantly, we must consider the decorative style of the room and pick a headboard that will compliment the aesthetic, and the personality of the occupant.

 There’s a plethora of materials and designs to choose from—from conventional to colourful with a variety of shapes and textures.

To help you get your head around the choices without being bored by the research, we’ve put together a list of fifteen unique and beautiful headboards that you can take inspiration from.

1. The full width of the wall

 Why not go all out and cover the entire wall? If you choose a rustic material such as wood you can bring a warm and natural element to your room.

2. Shut up

 Headboards perform a purely decorative function, so any idea is appropriate—even restoring some old wooden shutters and mounting them on the wall!

3. The upholstered option

 A stylish and comfortable option that’s expected to become increasingly popular through 2017.

​4. Give me shelter

 Make your bed stand out by opting for a large headboard with a sloping roof.

​5. Contrast and combine

 If you’d like to have different decorative elements that draw focus to the bed then choose a contrasting coloured headboard and match it with a lamp or some artwork.

​6. Build it with boards

 Simply attach multiple wooden boards and apply colour to get a headboard that integrates well in virtually any style.

​7. The minimalist approach

 Something as simple as a few wooden slats is more than enough to appeal to the minimalists amongst us.

​8. Iron beds

 Why not opt for an old-school iron bed with a built in headboard?

9. A more elegant approach

Opt for a more stylised iron bed to integrate a little classic style into your room.

​10. Adapted to any style

 A grey leather upholstered headboard with backlighting is able to adapt to almost any style from rustic to modern.

11. The pallet headboard

 Upcycling is all the rage, and it’s good for the environment too! A well sanded palette treated with suitable varnish can make a cheap and stylish headboard.

​12. Wonderful wood carving

 A headboard of detailed wood carvings can make an impressive focal point for your bedroom.

13. Natural wood

A piece of natural wood can make an excellent headboard that brings a little bit of nature into your bedroom.

​14. A headboard as a partition

 The headboard can be incorporated into a partition wall to separate the living area and bathroom.

15. Vibrant colour

 You can highlight the headboard with vibrant colour, just make sure it’s balanced with the other elements of the room.
