Play and display. This headboard unit works all sorts of wonders providing enough space for a lot of clothes storage around its edges. I also like the way it creates a tidy recess for matching built-in bedside tables — sizable ones to boot. The really good-looking part though is the shelves inside the recess which provide heaps of room for a movable art display or collection of treasured photographs. And making the wood dark and moody lets the lamplight create a supercozy soporific glow.
Iron headboard. The beauty strength and value of the iron headboard and base are cherished by all those who own one. In the later part of the 19th century artisans hand poured and polished iron bed frames. When World War I started they stopped as the iron was needed to make weapons. The end of this war saw handmade items replaced with assembly line products. New iron headboards now come in many different powder-coated colors and finishes. If custom is important to you then this is the way to go. Make sure your headboard is made from cold-rolled steel as it has a higher tensile strength and will not dent like hot-rolled steel. Antique iron headboards are not cheap but they do come with a real sense of history. A new iron headboard is comparable in price to a standard timber headboard and base that don′t have a lot of carving detail.
Fireplace surround. Another item to repurpose as a headboard and one that’s even more unexpected than vintage shutters is a fireplace mantle. If you’re lucky you’ll score an oversized unit from some old Victorian mansion into whose recesses a bed fits just perfectly. If you really love the idea but can’t find an antique model to accommodate a king-size bed you could always have one made by a carpenter to fit your mattress’ exact dimensions. This romantic Los Angeles bedroom shows off the best of both worlds with a traditional tufted headboard fitted inside the surround.
Electric art. Here’s another way to include your alternative headboard in your bedroom’s lighting design. This rectangular shape has the familiarity of a conventional headboard but the multiple glowing lights are a clever twist. A neon sign mounted above the bed would provide a similar effect.
