When you think about it, you probably spend the most time in your bedroom, whether it’s for sleeping, resting or reading. So, why not create a beautiful space to reflect your personality or style preference? Colour or artwork is most commonly used to recreate a particular look, but have you ever thought of getting a showpiece headboard that completely transforms your bedroom from boring to stunning?

Before you invest, make sure that you know what you are in for as you will have to live with it for a long time. These 10 stunning headboards will help you decide on the look that suits your style.

Glass Art

A headboard could also be used as a partition, like in this bedroom, where the patterned glass panel framed in wood hides away the dressing area. However, beauty outshines practicality as the stunning glass panel adds light and beauty to the room.

Surreal Splendour

This dreamy headboard comprises a stunning combination of upholstered patchwork studded with button inlays that blend into beautiful wall decals in white and gold. Paired with the exquisite ceiling lights that resemble a starlit sky, the effect is surreal!

Classic Luxe




When luxury is the theme of a bedroom, like in this one, nothing beats classic design, whether it’s the furniture, lighting or window treatments. The rich upholstered floor-to-ceiling headboard in blue creates a sophisticated contrast to the beige and white throughout the room.

If you like creative design, how about opting for an unusual headboard like this one that climbs up to the ceiling and creates a canopy over the bed? The use of dark wood against the white walls gives the room a modern feel that is accentuated by the recessed lighting and hanging lampshades.

If nature is your best friend, then this lovely custom-designed wooden headboard that matches the rest of the furniture and wardrobes in the bedroom creates the perfect paradise for relaxing.

Abstract Art

Are you a fan of modern design and colourful walls? If so, this abstract headboard with a mixed colour palette can be the ideal solution for adding character to your bedroom. Get matching bed linen or décor accessories to make your bedroom a stunning work of art.

Traditional with a Twist

Can’t decide whether you prefer tradition or modern? Why not combine the two? In this bedroom, the beautifully carved wooden frame adds a traditional element that is offset by the modern upholstered panels on the headboard. The result is spectacular!

Geometric Beauty

If you love to play with colours and shapes, a multi-coloured geometric headboard will please you. Use contrasting colours for the walls and linen to make the room resemble a rainbow – perfect for a kid’s room!

Backlit Wonder

Instead of using colour and texture, sometimes lighting works just as well in creating a stunning headboard, like in this room where the backlighting on the etched glass panels creates a glowing headboard that is a picture of quiet sophistication.
