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.
There are more cool padded headboards out there, see below.
The chalet decor is a mountain hut style with lots of wood, stone and other natural materials, which means that it is very cozy and very welcoming. When you design a room in such a style, you get a very welcoming space that you never want to leave. A chalet kitchen is a nice place to cook, eat, have conversation and overall cook. How do I design one? Here are a few ideas.
Styles, material and color palettes
Every chalet is about wood and stone, in any interpretation you like. It can be traditional, with more vintage furniture, a large fireplace, stone slabs, and a stone wall. It can be contemporary or minimalist, with sleek cabinets with no handles or knobs, with built-in appliances, and a stylish hood. It can be rough, with lots of rough wood and stone, with all natural decor and design, and of course you can mix up the styles the way you see it.
The color palette is usually quite natural: different shades of wood and stone, you can add concrete, different types of marble and bricks, for example, dark metal. You can also be non-traditional and rock a very bright chalet kitchen to make it feel fresh and flooded with light, or a dark, moody chalet kitchen with a touch of masculine design.
Furniture and appliances
As for furniture, you usually have kitchen cabinets and you can vary to have upper and lower cabinets or just prefer lower ones and rock a large window for a mountain view. A kitchen island may have a dining area - a raised countertop - and can also be used as a dining area. Build in some gadgets or prefer bold ones that go with the style and are fun!
