Cabinets are similar to bookshelves and can also be used as headboards for LOTS of extra storage space! Here’s an adorable project from Kate Honebrink featuring an upcycled cabinet as a headboard for a kids’ room.
A bed and bookshelf headboard from Simply Grove takes a different approach by positioning one side of the bed against it as opposed to the head of the bed.
If you’ve got a lot of books why not just stretch your bookshelf headboard as far as you can? Here’s one featured on The Design Files that has little book cubbies built around the whole wall of a bed.
Soon you will find this single wall morphing into the focal point of your bedroom as everything from inspirational quotes to funny doodles start taking shape on it.
If you’re feeling really creative you can actually build your own bookshelf headboard by combining and stacking separate pieces like this gorgeous example from Love Chic Living.
If a chalkboard does not fit the sleek contemporary style of your bedroom or you feel that it is simply not what you are after then splurge on a gorgeous piece of artwork a painting or even a poster that has the same visual appeal of a chalkboard filled with handy artwork. There are many such pieces around that will both dazzle and delight you and add dramatic flair to the modern bedroom.
Of course you can even add just one chalkboard accent wall here and fill the rest of the room with loads of color and fancy decor. But chalkboard walls are not just for kids’ rooms alone and even teen bedrooms can benefit greatly from their presence.
Think about it. A pair of twin beds is more convenient for guests who aren’t couples and the symmetry you can create will give your guests double the design envy! Check out these that will make your guests feel right at home.
