Creating a bedroom that is inviting and relaxing is important and one of the most important features needs to be the headboard of the bed.
It can be a statement item that can show your personality better than anything else in the room. That’s why I’ve put together a list of 9 cheap headboard ideas that will transform your bedroom.
Your bedroom is your space and you want it to look good as well as function well and for this reason I’ve picked a lot of padded and material based headboards, I’ve had wooden ones and they just aren’t comfortable to sit up to read or watch TV with but it doesn’t mean they are the best headboard for you.

Headboards That Are Affordable
Headboards have come a long way in just a few years, they are so much more stylish now than I remember and they can really add that spot of colour to a room, especially if you are renting and can’t paint the walls.
The most exciting thing I’ve found whilst looking for headboards is the price, you don’t have to spend a fortune, there are some really great options that are affordable.
If you are crafty it’s even possible to make your own headboard.
The Perfect Headboard
Finding the perfect headboard for you isn’t going to be an impossible mission, but you are going to need to think about some of the things that you like and dislike to help make that process easier.
You can make a check list of all the things you are looking for in a headboard and see what options meet your requirements. It will make choosing one a lot easier.
- Fabric or wooden
- Colour or plain
- Classic look or modern
- Warming tones or vibrant
- Size of headboard
The most important thing to think about is the size of the bed, if you aren’t planning on changing the bed at the same time, you must think about how big the headboard needs to be.
If it’s too big it could look out of balance to the room, if it’s too small it could make the proportions of the room look off.
It’s important to think about the colour of the material if you are someone that likes to dye their hair a lot. Sometimes, it’s common for hair dye to stain light fabrics and this isn’t something you want to deal with on something you have just purchased.
