A faux headboard can be a bedroom focal point offset by simple soft sheer shades
Apr 28 2011
Creating an alternative to a traditional headboard is a space-saving way to give a bedroom a unique look.
An art work can take the place of a traditional headboard.
A faux headboard can be painted directly on the wall. It can be as traditional as the outline of an iron headboard, an abstract mural or any design that frames the bed. Decorating the wall around the bed can also be done with a tapestry or quilt for a backdrop.
A simple back board or shutters can be decorated by painting or with wallpaper for a cottage-style headboard coordinated with the other colors in the room. For a softer look, the board can be lined with foam and covered by fabric for an upholstered headboard that's comfortable for reading in bed.
"If you want to feel like you’re sleeping in a contemporary hotel room every night, hang a set of curtains behind the bed," advises TheFrisky.com. A curtain rod can be installed or the curtains can be hung on hooks.
For a window treatment, soft sheer shades have an elegant look that's simple enough to coordinate well with both contemporary and traditional looks. They allow filtered light to stream into the room while providing visibility of the outdoors.
