Your bedroom is perhaps the most important room in your house because it is where you relax, wake up and have a mood for the whole day. That’s why it’s important to keep your bedroom cool and stylish, and your bed should be super comfortable and functional when needed – this is the centerpiece of the room. Although many beds these days come without a headboard, you can make one or chop up an existing one to add decorative value and functionality to the bed. I have prepared some cool IKEA headboard hacks to inspire you: some of them are IKEA headboard hacks, some are common headboards made over with IKEA items – try and craft!
Headboards with storage space
Storage headboards are very practical: they offer extra storage space and you no longer have bedside tables! This is a perfect idea for a small bedroom and any large one too if you want a sleek, minimalist look. To get some storage space, you can make a headboard out of IKEA Trones cabinets – this is a very effective idea. Take a mandal headboard and add shelves for open storage. Attach Ribba or Mosslanda strips to the headboard for hidden storage. Two Alex units with a wooden worktop is a cool idea to store lots of things in them.
An upholstered headboard is a timeless classic that gives the room a soft and cozy feel and something different depending on the fabric you choose. You can try different colors, patterns and fabrics to match your bedroom style and make a bold statement with your headboard. You can also wrap your headboard in weave – opt for leather or any fabric you like and you’ll give it a ’70s-inspired look. Mix and match cushions and add storage space in your headboard for maximum results!
Make a square headboard out of cane weave and Ivar panels – cane is very popular these days and gives the room an outdoor feel. Bekant Office Panels can be used to create a stylish oversized statement headboard. Dress an existing headboard in weathered wood for a rustic feel. Make a comfy and trendy headboard out of a shared pillow hanging right on the wall – this will add an edgy touch to your bedroom.
