Sometimes the little overlooked details can have the biggest impact on your home, you just don't realise it! That's certainly the case with headboards for beds. While everyone knows the bed is the focal point of every bedroom, and people often take great care finding the perfect mattress, considering both size and comfort, people rarely consider the effect the headboard has on the rest of the decor. Well today we're going to remedy that with some incredible and original designs for headboards that will show just how beautiful they can be!

While you may take for granted that you will simply get the headboard that goes with your bed, in fact headboards are often standalone items, and can be easily modified or altered to achieve a completely different look. A headboard may be a wall covering that marks where the bed will be positioned, or it may be attached to the bed base, but either way there are all kinds of decorative options that will help your bedroom to stand apart from the rest.
