Are you okay with the stack of pillows you made near the headboard or do you want to do something with the empty space? If your headboard is nothing but a plain cushion, you might want to give it a chance to become as interesting as the rest of the spaces in your house. As the style-focused spaces ahead prove, even the most mundane or expected elements can instantly transform your room.
Add A Wallpaper or Tiles To The Wall
Take a leaf out of interior decor books that have vouched for the effect that a well-painted and thoughtfully placed wallpaper can have on a room. Aside from painting or adding a wallpaper to the wall, you can even try your hand at tiling on the wall. Mosaic tiles are a great choice when it comes to creating a pattern or design using these small tiles that make for a big impact. Use your imagination and select from a variety of application alternatives of wall paper, painting, or installing tiles on your walls!
If the headboard area of the wall is empty and you have the space to hang something, you can most definitely go with mirrors. They are a great way to make a room look brighter and larger. Whether it is smaller sized mirrors or larger ones, when placed in position and with the right shapes, even though it’s random, makes a space instantly lift up its energies. They are also Vastu-approved and hence, you can incorporate that seamlessly in your room.
Shelves are the most congenial facets of interior decor when it comes to adding them as decorative or utility pieces. Skip the crested headboard and instead decorate with a shelf laden with accent items you love. You can add anything from books, framed photographs or paintings, or statement lamps.
Create An Accent Wall
Creating an accent wall can give the look of filing the area without actually putting anything in the space. Paintings, wallpaper, and shiplap are all great ways to create a different wall behind your bed and will change the feel of the whole room. You can even put up photographs and your art pieces if there are any.
Experiment With Lighting
Adding a lamp or bright lighting fixtures to any space brings in positivity. Lamps that mount on the wall and have moving arms are also a great addition because they can be adjusted based on where you need the light. Sconces are very popular these days and come in so many different styles, you are sure to be able to find one that you like.
Place Rugs Where Possible
Rugs give a comforting and rustic look to any space they are laid in. A floor without rugs can look bare or uninviting, but add some rugs and voila! Suddenly the entire room transforms into a haven of warmth and cosiness. Based on the design and colour, rugs complement the decor of the space as well. You can easily demarcate the spaces depending on where they are placed. Plus, they also give solid support to the elderly and children, thus bringing down the risks of slips and falls.
Houseplants are the smoothest way to incorporate colour within any space. They make the space livelier and bring a touch of nature into the room. On the decor front, plants and flowers are always a happy addition as they also bring in a lot of positivity into the space. Gardening and nurturing brings down the stress levels which, in turn, makes your home a happy space to be in. Happy spaces give you a sound sleep environment. So, it’s a win-win on all fronts!
Create A Gallery Wall
Gallery walls are your playground! The easiest way to start is by having a theme in your mind. Whether it’s pictures or mirrors, calligraphy or your artworks, this can be a space to show off your personality and individuality. You can hang the display items over your bed to create a stylish little nook in a space that would otherwise be unoccupied.
Your bedroom can be as personalised as you want it to be. The empty space over your headboard can be an opportunity for you to bring forth your creativity. Stay away from sharp objects and edges since it will be just over your head. Simple additions and changes will elevate the empty space into a very lively area which you created! What are you planning to do with your empty headboard space, then?
