Decorating the wall behind your headboard can be both fun and challenging. I know what it is like to look at a gorgeous piece of wall art that you just cannot buy for your home. Maybe you have seen one that you just have to have but can’t quite afford. That is alright. It’s hard to find those things in our imperfect world. I am going to share with you some tips on decorating the wall behind your headboard.
Some ideas for Decorating the Wall Behind Your Headboard
One thing you should do before you start decorating the wall behind your headboard is to take out that particular piece of wall art that you just can’t afford. Go through it and get rid of any items that are broken, damaged or the artwork itself is no longer of the same quality that it was when you purchased it. If you have several pieces like this, it will be much easier to shop for a new piece that you really love. Before you go out and start thinking about buying pieces of art that you want to add to your wall, I would recommend taking out some of your favorite pieces of art. You might also choose to purchase some of the framed wall art for your bedroom as well.
Display Custom Art
You will also want to consider some other options you have for decorating the wall behind your headboard. What type of wall art do you like? Some people choose framed art and others might prefer not to frame anything at all. What type of decorating theme are you going with? Do you like to have bare wood or would a linen cloth work better?
Paints behind your headboard
Another option for decorating the wall behind your headboard would be to paint it. This is an easy way to bring a nice new look into the room without having to pay for expensive wallpaper. There are paints available in acrylic paint, oil paint, and latex paint. There are downsides to painting the wall behind your headboard, such as it can become uneven if you don’t use the right brush size. This is especially true if you are using two different colors of paint. You also need to be careful when painting with acrylic paint as it can drip, which can ruin other decorations in your room.
Headboard with stencils
Some people choose to use stencils to decorate the wall behind your headboard. You can find many different types of stencils that are specifically made for decorating the wall behind your headboard. There are ones that are clear so that you can see the designs, and there are some that have designs that are in the shapes of flowers. You can even get ones that are in the form of hearts. Decorating with stencils is fairly simple. All you need to do is take the stencil that you like and buy another item that goes with the design, such as a heart or something else of the sort.
Hang a Rug as a Headboard
Another option is to use rugs. Rugs are perfect for rooms that have a lot of carpeting, such as the living room or the kitchen. They allow you to take out the carpeting and show off your beautiful artwork without it getting dirty. If you have rugs in a room, you won’t have to worry about them being stepped on or trampled around. With rugs, they just simply liven up the room and make it a lot more attractive.
Custom aquarium headboard
You can also add things to a room to add a splash of color or even to create a focal point. One great thing to do is add an aquarium to a room. An aquarium will give your wall behind the headboard a nice background and will add some interest. You can even go so far as to install a fish tank and put in a few fish to give your guests some extra decoration options!
If you want to decorate the wall behind your bed, there are some other things you can do as well. For instance, you can add art pieces or a couple of framed photographs to the room. This can add a unique flair to the room and will definitely be a conversation piece! Framed photos or art pieces can be displayed above the dresser or on the side table. Again, you can choose to simply have them by the bed or you can install frames in the middle of the room so that they are above the dresser.
