Upholstering Your Headboard

As the year-end draws near, it’s time to look around your bedroom and see what needs to change. Small changes like using different color schemes for sheets and blankets, and using patterned pillowcases are great to start with. However, if you want to transform your bedroom, a big project like upholstering your headboard is something you should consider. Here are some tips on how to design your upholstered headboard:

Use Bold Colors

Most rooms are painted with lighter colors. This is why adding deeper colors wouldn’t hurt. Use bold statement colors like royal blue, bright red, lime, pink, or even purple! This will help create a focal point in your bedroom. Make sure to use complementary colors for the sheets and pillowcases.

Use Patterns

When people think of upholstered headboards, the first thing that comes to mind is plain fabric. While most headboards use plain fabrics, patterned fabric is a great option if you want to add a little personality to your room. Patterns or prints like vintage, contemporary, southwestern, or floral, are all perfect for upholstered headboards. Just make sure to choose a color scheme that works with the rest of your bedroom

Add Decorative Accessories

Want to add something more to your upholstered headboard? Adding some accessories like decorative nails, trims, and tufted buttons can tie the look together. You can have them in contrasting or complementary colors. You can choose to have the same color as the upholstery. The sky’s the limit when it comes to choosing headboard accessories. 


Work with Expert Craftsmen

Headboards can be incorporated into many bed types. You can have them attached to the wall, or made into pillows for your comfort and adjustment. Let expert craftsmen do the work for you! All you need to do is to describe your vision and let them work their magic.
