5 Creative Ways To Style The Wall Behind Your Bed

Time to give it a bold and one-of-a-kind facelift!


For a lot of us, the bedroom serves as our respite at the end of the long day—it's where we relax, sleep, and find time to recharge before we face the real world again. That's probably why we're always constantly working on different ways to make it cozy and keep the decor on point.

However, there is one area that homeowners seem to keep forgetting to spruce up—the wall behind the bed. To help you turn this neglected spot into the stunning focal point of your sleeping quarters, we've listed down five ways that can inspire you:

Hanging up sheer curtains or printed kilims behind the bed frame is an easy way to give your sleeping space some character. Aside from providing a unique touch to the room, it can also cover a multitude of wall imperfections such as chipped paint or wallpaper tears.

Give your space a design boost while faking a few more square meters by propping up a mirror behind your bed. Consider choosing a tall piece with intricate details in order to cast back the other half of the room with ease while still making a statement.

If you're itching for a major upgrade, you can hire a mural artist who can render one-of-a-kind wall art. This is a great way to spice things up without disturbing the layout and structure of the room.

Do you like being surrounded by things that inspire you to create? For art enthusiasts and budding designers, try creating a gallery wall consisting of your favorite quotes, prints, and even precious family photos above your bed.

Apart from serving as storage for your bedtime essentials, installing a shelf or two above the bed allows you breathing room to style it however you want to. Fill it up with your favorite reads or curate a vignette—built-in shelving isn't only practical, it can be decorative too.
