9 statement headboard ideas for your bedroom

Statement headboards

WordsMegan Lambert

SCROLL

Headboards are a big design statement and can make a bedroom. Just as we love a wallpaper feature wall behind your bed, we love a statement headboard. When choosing yours, it’s important to think about your overall style and how that will tie in with the rest of the room, the best paint colour for your bedroom, and—if your headboard is wooden—the best paint colours to pair with wood

Whether you’re going for colourful bedroom decor or a neutral bedroom look, we hope these 9 headboard ideas will help you make a statement.

Headboard style idea: rattan

In case you’ve somehow missed it, rattan is a real trend right now—you’ll find it everywhere, from dining chairs to radiator covers. But one of our favourite uses of rattan is for a headboard, perfect if you’re going for Japandi style decor.

Headboard style idea: metal frame

Whether you’re going wrought iron or brass, a metal frame can create a sturdy and timeless look. Using rustic metals has been popularised by Scandi interior style but pair it with another one of our favourite decor trends, wood panelling, and it creates that modern farmhouse style.

@we_are_the_russells shows us how to create a cosy, textured look by contrasting a black, wrought iron frame with warming Green 02 shiplap wood-panelling. Or for a truly Maximalist decor style, go for a brass bed frame against statement patterned bedroom wallpaper.

Headboard style idea: curved

A curved headboard is the way to go if you want to add instant style and also an element of sensuality. These curvaceous headboards have a feminine, romantic appearance, and make for a stunning statement feature in the bedroom.
