Hang a tapestry on the wall behind your bed.

This is an easy and inexpensive way to add some color and pattern to your bedroom without overwhelming the space. Plus, it’s an easy way to change up the look of your room whenever you feel like it.

Add some throw pillows to your bed.

This is an easy way to make your bed look more inviting and well put together.

There’s something about a beautifully made bed that just makes you want to curl up and relax. But if you don’t have a headboard, it can feel a little unfinished.

Throw pillows are a great way to add both comfort and style to your bed. And if you choose pillows in colors that coordinate with your bedding, it can give the illusion of a headboard without the extra cost or commitment.

Plus, you can always change out the pillows when you want to refresh your look. So if you’re looking for a way to add both comfort and style to your bedroom, consider using throw pillows instead of a headboard.

As a Bonus tip, just switch up the throw pillow covers (or pillow shams as some call them) whenever you want to switch up. We carry some really cute designs in our shop.

Add a rug underneath your bed.

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax and recharge after a long day. If your bedroom is feeling a little bit lackluster without a headboard, one way to add some pizzazz is by adding a rug underneath your bed.

Not only will this help to define the space and make it feel more comfortable, but it will also add a touch of style. Rugs come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find one that fits your personal aesthetic.

Whether you choose a bold print or a subtle solid, adding a rug to your bedroom is an easy way to make the space feel more put-together and stylish. As a side note, you might want to choose a rug with a low pile so that it is easy to vacuum.

Get creative with wall art.

This is a great way to personalize your space and make it feel like your bedroom.

If you’re a sucker for nostalgia, try hanging vintage posters or black-and-white photos. For something more modern, try geometric prints or abstract canvases. If you want to inject a little bit of color into your space, go for brightly hued paintings or pastel drawings. And if you’re looking for something truly unique, try a wall vase or a mural.

No matter what your style, there’s sure to be wall art that’s perfect for your bedroom.

You can find affordable artwork at places like Ikea or even create your own using photos or art supplies from the craft store. Just have fun with it and let your personality shine through!
