20 Stunning King Size Headboard Ideas

Your headboard can make or break your bedroom. Headboards are not only a focal point of your room, but they can be functional pieces that allow you to comfortably lounge in bed, watch TV, read, or just relax and chat with your significant other. King size beds may seem like they are hard to create a head board for, but they are really no different that any other size of bed. You can create a gorgeous king size headboard for your bed to really show off your room, your bedding ensemble or simply just your style. Headboards can be made out of just about anything you dream of, it just depends on how creative you want to be. Typically, however, headboards are made of some kind of wood, and even so, there are many different types of wood, colors of wood, among other differences, that allow you to be creative in whether you want to create an elegant style headboard, rustic, western, or other design. Other forms of materials can be used too, such as brick, rod iron, upholstered, and others. Here are some tips for creating your own king size headboard to make your bed the focal point of your room.

Measure your space

You may have a style in mind that you want for your headboard, but what you want, and how much space you have for the design you want, may not coincide. Sometimes styles can be adjusted to fit your space, but not always. The space you have available for a headboard may help you to decide on a style. To start, measure the wall space you have behind your bed, how much you want the headboard to extend both horizontally as well as laterally. Once you have your measurements, you will know what type of styles you will, or won’t be able to use.

Styles

What style is your bedroom? Is your bedroom furniture modern, retro, classic, rustic shabby chic, or another style? You will want to design a head board that fits in with the rest of your bedroom’s design style. For instance, a rustic style headboard would look awkward if the rest of your bedroom furniture and look was modern, classically elegant, or cottage style. You want your style choices to flow and be consistent.

Think out of the box by using different materials

Headboards don’t have to be the typical wooden headboard that attaches to the bed rails. Using the wall behind your bed to build a built-in style of headboard is common today, and a unique way to extend the headboard above and beyond the actual frame. If you plan to keep your bed against one particular wall, permanently, you can use materials such as brick, wood planks, or other materials that attach to the wall to create a bigger, more elaborate headboard design. Whether you choose to use a large portion of the wall, from floor to ceiling, or a portion of the wall, you can make some incredible headboard designs that are the major focal point of the room.

You may be stumped for ideas for your bed and room, but once you let the creative juices flow, you can come up with a king size headboard that fits your style, personality and lifestyle. Here are 20 stunning king size headboard ideas to help get those creative juices flowing.
