Save Money By Skipping The Headboard: Use These Ideas For Framing A Bed

Although a bed with a headboard can add a focal point to the entire room, they’re not in the budget for everyone. So, can your bedroom still be beautiful without a headboard? Believe it or not, yes. Whether you are on a fixed budget or just want to try something different, there are plenty of fabulous budget-friendly ideas for headboard alternatives. Let’s take a look:

Paint an accent wall

Use a set of old doors

If you have a set of old wooden doors with a great patina, its time to put them to good use as an alternative headboard by sandwiching them between your bed and the blank wall.  Just make sure that if the doors are quite heavy, you should secure them to the wall first.

Floating furniture as a headboard

If you have the space for a headboard in your bedroom, but you still want to replace it with something, floating furniture would be a great solution. If you have enough space, you can float a cabinet, dresser or desk in the bedroom with a space to open the drawers on one side and use the back of the furniture piece as your headboard.
