Headboards can change the whole vibe of a space, for example going from a farmhouse to an elegant room. A headboard can be fun and funky and bold with color, or it can be subtle and understated. You can create an atmosphere in the bedroom just by changing your headboard, turning a good room into an amazing one.
Below you’ll find 10 headboard ideas to inspire your next bedroom goals. Some are simple, some are nontraditional, but they all have the power to make your space feel fresh and new.
LET’S START WITH A TRADITIONAL RATTAN BEAUTY
Whether you live in a studio apartment or large home, there’s almost always room for a headboard. What makes this Rattan headboard great, is that is goes with any style. The clean design will fit with any existing decor without clashing, which makes it perfect for any bedroom space.
A FARMHOUSE SPIN ON A TRADITIONAL FEEL
Little Yellow Wheelbarrow
The simple x’s on this headboard made from barn doors takes it from a simple everyday headboard to a farmhouse must. The knotted wood and uneven coloring add character for a rustic feel.
AN OPEN PATTERN
An open pattern adds interest and depth to a room. A headboard with an asymmetrical design or unique pattern like the one above takes that interest a step further.
STORAGE, STORAGE, STORAGE
If you need more storage or are always running out of room in your nightstand, look no further than the photo above. It’s a cute way to make storage a design feature in your room.
I heard somewhere the tufted headboards are going out of style, but I think tufted headboards will always be a classic style. Adding a tufted headboard adds elegance to any room. Pairing it with things that are on trend (brass décor and finishing's, as well as Scandi furniture pieces) will make your room the perfect balance of classic and trendy.
BOLD, BEAUTIFUL, AND BOHO
This herringbone design is bound to create a statement in any bedroom. The robust structure along with the uniqueness of the wood creates a modern yet rustic appeal, perfect if you need “that little something” to elevate your space.
This wooden slatted headboard is perfect for a minimalistic look and feel in your bedroom. Add an element of interest with the raw colours and textures found in the wood of the Scandinavian inspired headboard.
Organize your stuff now
In fact, it’s not a headboard at all. Using decor such as old window panes or doors can be a great way to make a headboard. Get creative. No one said a headboard really had to be a headboard to pull a room together!
THE PILLOW HEADBOARD

Amber Interiors INC.
I think this is my new favorite trend. It just adds a whole new element of interest in the bedroom. Minimalistic yet eclectic, this unique headboard style is definitely a must try.
THE CIRCLE – A NON-HEADBOARD
A can of paint and some simple materials are all that’s needed to recreate this look. I really love the idea of a painted circle behind the bed. This creates the illusion of a headboard, as the circle frames the bed.
So many great ideas, don’t you think?
