If you’re looking for an easy way to dress up the bed and make it a statement piece in your child’s bedroom, then headboards are for you. There are numerous different choices out on the market and you can also make one yourself, either thanks to your DIY skills or with the help of an upholsterer.

Don’t let the endless pool of options intimidate you! We are here today to show some of the most exciting ideas out there and help you make the right choice.

THE TIMELESS CLASSICS

If you’ve bought a mattress and base for your kid’s bed, and thought you would push it up against the wall and add big cushions for your child to rest his head on, then you’ll quickly be disappointed. The room will look incomplete somehow. You can easily get an upholstered headboard made by your local upholsterer in your own fabric. Or you can contact a headboard specialist; many offer their designs customized. You can have fun imagining the shape whether it be a square, rectangular or a  half circle, with or without  border, padded with buttons or plain. Timeless doesn’t mean boring.

VINTAGE

For a romantic ambiance, a vintage kid’s bed will be your best choice as they almost always come with a unique headboard, often with interesting and curvy details. But there are simpler versions too, which will fit perfectly into boy’s rooms.

DIY

You could in fact just decorate the wall behind the head of the bed with simple tricks, such as using washi tape, paint or stickers. But if you have more time and feel creative, then why not cut a few pieces of wood and assemble it to an interesting shape? You can also get wood panels cut into an interesting geometric shape that you either leave plain or paint into a favourite colour.

AMUSING AND ORIGINAL

If the kid’s room needs some fun, then look no further than an original headboard. Wer’re loving the genius idea of the witty cat ears! It’s fun but chic. Be careful not to add too many details resulting in excessive garishness. However, some kitsch can be fun if you know how to dose it.

RATTAN

Last, but not least..We couldn’t finish this post by not including a few examples of rattan headboards which are so popular right now! Most are made in Bali or Indonesia in the “peacock” style and aren’t that expensive, but if you opt for a sleek 40’s style look, then chances are that it’s made by a designer and more expensive.

Decorating the bed with a headboard is an effective way to embellish the whole room, not just the part of where the bed is placed. It’s a small step for the bed, but a giant leap for the bedroom.
