5 Neat & Easy DIY Headboard Alternatives

It may be called a headboard, but your head rarely touches it and as a design element it has little to no functional relevance, so why not have a little DIY fun?

Headboards have had their heyday, but more often than not they’re no longer included in the price of a new bed, which ends up giving you a lot of interior design options – how convenient! So, here are 5 fun DIY ideas if you decide you don’t want a traditional headboard:

1. Tapestries

College may be over, but all tapestries are not created equal – and not all of them are tie-dye. In fact, many tapestries are very luxurious, but you can DIY one as well to find that happy middle ground.

2. Wall Art

Whether you paint a masterpiece yourself or pick one up on Craigslist, wall art hung behind the bed can give your room a unique look and feel, especially if you add a big, beautiful frame that complements your décor.

3. Shelving

If you snoozed through any part of the 70s or 80s, there’s a good chance you took your naps in a bed that had a headboard with shelving built right into it. And, it was probably awesome.

You can still find those from time to time, but you can also build your own or use brackets to line your wall with shelves within arm’s reach so you can keep your books, bourbon and Bugle bags close at hand.

4. Paint

We’re not talking about the same paint as the rest of the bedroom – this could be a painted pattern specific to the wall or area behind your bed that sets it apart from everything else.

Get creative; if it doesn’t work, just paint over it and start again.

5. Wall Decals

This is a fast, easy way to add design to where your headboard would normally take up space, and the wall decals and stickers they make today are affordable and easy to remove if you ever want to change things up.

The same often can’t be said about headboards, so hopefully these tips give you some ideas if a headboard doesn’t fit with your style or budget.

WALLTAT''s removable vinyl wall decals come in a wide variety of colors and styles, and are an affordable way to add a little flavor in place of a headboard. 

These floating shelves by Nexera are great for the bedroom when function is preferable to form in the headboard department.
