When styling bedrooms, headboards are usually used to make a huge décor statement. From tufted fabric to beveled glass, almost anything can be used to dress up the sad spot behind our mattress. However, these high-quality pieces can cost a fortune and it can be a stretch for homeowners with other priorities. 

No need to worry, there are other ways to spruce up a bare wall—whether you have a limited budget, short on space, or you just can’t find something you love, here are some ideas that can make your #roomgoals come to life: 


Washi tape is probably the cheapest and easiest decorating tool you can use to wake up a lonely wall. Take inspiration from this geometric piece (as seen in photo) and create something minimalist-inspired for your bedroom, too. 

Move your gallery wall from the living area to the bedroom for a one-of-a-kind faux headboard. You can also mix and match different frames for a vintage-inspired feel. 

Temporary wall decals are a great substitute for hanging artwork and a simple way to play with a lot of different looks. When you're ready for an upgrade or a new aesthetic, just peel it off without any hassle! 

Hanging a tapestry of knitted dreamcatchers will give your bedroom major beachy, Bohemian vibes. These are easy to come by and super budget-friendly—try looking for them at your local thrift store and Etsy has a lot of choices available, too.  


Modern, department store beds usually come with a very low headboard. In order trick the eye into thinking it has height, consider having floating shelves installed over it—use it to stack books, display photographs or store extra knickknacks.
