HOW TO MAKE AN UPHOLSTERED HEADBOARD – DIY TUTORIAL – Dimples and Tangles upholstered headboards
An upholstered headboard is a great solution for any bedroom - adult or child, female or male, glamorous or industrial. It's convenient, easy to maintain, and you can make it yourself and renovate it if necessary. There are different types of upholstered headboards to choose from. Let's look at them.
Oversized and tall padded headboards
I want to start with the hottest trend in bedroom decor: oversized headboards. Just like oversized murals, they make a statement and almost become one, especially if you go for bold or patterned fabric. An oversized headboard on the ceilings looks luxurious and turns your bed into a comfortable sleeping area. A high headboard is another cool alternative to an oversized and no less chic.
Padded headboards with nail cladding
No matter which fabric you choose, frames, shapes and other things, you can always highlight your upholstered headboard with a nail trim. If you make it yourself or just bought it, just add decorative nails at the end to create patterns or make the edge stand out.
Wingback padded headboards
Wingbacks are a cool and cute detail that gives the impression that you have a separate comfortable sleeping area. You can use these wings for lights or also and decorate them with nail head trimmings.
Framed upholstered headboards
This is a great idea, especially for vintage and shabby chic bedrooms. Choose or design an antique frame for your headboard for a cool look. There are also modern metal-framed and mirror-framed headboards that look gorgeous and add a slight metallic accent.
