It is easy for your bed to become the focal point in your bedroom. While your pillows, duvets, and covers all can help create your design, nothing can be as impactful as your bed’s headboard. You can purchase a headboard with any bed, or you can custom-make your own to match your style. Any do-it-yourself project can help save money and give features more personal value to your home. Here are three excellent ideas to consider for making your own headboard in your home:
Stained Wood Headboard
This simple headboard can be completed over the weekend. Start by measuring the size you would like to create your headboard. Consider that your headboard can be however big you would please. For example, it can go all the way to your ceiling, or it can go wall-to-wall. Playing with these dimensions can create an illusion of a higher ceiling or a longer wall. Once you decide the dimensions you want, go to your local lumber store. Purchase the amount of wood that you will need to create your headboard. Also, purchase a stain and sandpaper to give your wood headboard a clean, nice finish. For a more unique look, you can pick several different stains and stain several boards in different colors. Use a stud finder to mount your boards. Depending on the size of your headboard, you may want to assemble it directly to your wall.
Create a headboard frame using wood or purchasing a frame that you can upholster yourself. When upholstering your own headboard, you will be able to match fabrics perfectly with other textiles in your room. You can use remaining upholstery to create curtains or pillowcases to help create a uniformed look throughout your space. Using this technique will make your space feel very well balanced and aesthetically pleasing.
Curtain Backdrop Headboard
One of your simplest options is a curtain backdrop headboard. These are great for any space, but especially rental properties. Whether you are renting an apartment, home, or own your home, curtain backdrop headboards are very elegant and can help create your room’s theme. Simply mount a curtain rod behind your bed and install a curtain of your choice. You can be creative and invest in a curve rod to give a more three-dimensional look to your curtain as well.
