One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
Metal motifs with light themes found at a home discount store can be perfectly fixed to the walls to impart a chic look. You can frame your head boards with photo frames, placed adjacently, sans the glass. Cut batting the same size as the frame back and cover it with thick fabric with vibrant colors and textures. Wallpapers cut out in the outline of a headboard design contrasting with wall paint color can make it the focal attention of the room. Stencils with some spray adhesive, paint and little creativity can help illustrate some creativity at the headrest. Imaginatively colored fireplace screen can be spread behind the bed for a warm feel.
Suspended furniture is always a viable solution. The functionality of mini-shelves hanging on the wall is undeniable, they can serve for books and for cosmetics, documents or other decorative objects. One last thing you should consider. The space under the bed shouldn’t be overlooked. There’s where you can “hide” boxes of all sorts and baskets with lots of things inside.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves, thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form, you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well, how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
