Durable and Luxurious
Tufted headboards are a classic, but make it feel more current in a chic white. Choose a microfiber fabric for its durability and stain resistance. Design by RMSer ECinNC.
Organizing Made Easy
Tidy up a kid's bedroom with extra storage in the headboard. Designer Dan Vickery combines savvy cabinetry skills, acrylic doors and a bold red to create a contemporary headboard for a comic-loving boy.
Put high style on full display. Designer Candice Olson transforms a platform bed with a customized tangerine headboard tufted with fuchsia buttons.
Design a simply stunning headboard by framing a classic striped fabric. Use a vertical stripe to draw the eye up or a horizontal one to lengthen the wall. Design by Kenneth Brown.
Bright yellow wraparound cabinets serve as a unique headboard in this contemporary kid's room. Open and closed cubbies allow for the child to display favorite toys or hide away treasured possessions.
Beautiful and Comfy
A three-sided upholstered headboard wraps around a child's bed to create a cozy cocoon. Personalize with your kid's favorite fabric.
Headboards don't have to cost a lot. RMSer seasideinteriors creates a focal point by hanging a bamboo window treatment behind her son's bed. A framed picture that matches the explorer theme adds the finishing touch.
