Bed cubby. This isn’t so much a headboard as it is a head cubicle. We’re used to seeing beds enveloped by canopies and sheltered by four posters but a lower-profile cubby that cradles the sides of the bed can be just as comforting. I love the way the nightstands nest perfectly into the corners so that the whole bedscape feels like a single unit.
Lighten up. There’s plenty of space for a bedside lamp in this room but thanks to this bed design there’s no need. If you have an old-fashioned wrought iron bed like this or indeed any style with bars it’s easy to weave fairy or garland lights around the headboard. It’s a playful touch for a teenager’s room or a creative decorative detail in an eclectic adult space. Just make sure to plug your lights into a socket with an on-off switch rather than an extension lead meaning they would need to be unplugged to be turned off. Or you can buy rope lights with in-line switches.
Headboards can be a simple decorative detail or a handy surface to lean on for late-night reading — but they can also be so much more. So if you’re in the market for an upgrade tap into the possibilities for this piece of furniture and consider choosing — or designing — a headboard for your bed that will provide anything from extra storage to a mini gallery or even expand the sense of space in your bedroom. Let these ideas inspire you.
