The master bedroom is a sacred spot in any home, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. Your master bedroom should be a place you love to retreat to at the end of a long day to unwind and relax, which is why every design and décor choice matters. But there’s one vital piece of furniture that often gets overlooked when it comes to the décor of your master bedroom—the bedhead. Whether you’re all about the comfort of a plush upholstered design, or prefer the bold statement of a dark wood or colourful screen, the bedhead is the focal point of a bedroom and can change the vibe of your room in an instant. With so many bedhead options out there for your master bedroom, it can be hard to pick what might work best for your personal style. To help you turn your master bedroom décor from snooze fest to stylish sanctuary, we’ve pulled together our top five picks of the most eye-catching bedhead styles.
1. Upholstered bedhead
Comfort, style and sophistication, the upholstered bedhead has it all. This is a fast and easy fix for adding colour, texture and visual interest, and it also makes the perfect head rest for those nights spent reading or indulging in a Netflix series! From velvet to linen to leather, the right upholstered headboard will offer plenty of comfort while also maintaining the elegant ambience of your master bedroom.
2. Wooden bedhead
A wooden bedhead can take many forms—think modern-yet-rustic with a dark walnut stain for that moody vibe, or white washed wood for a touch of Hamptons style. If you’re after more of a classic look, go for a carved wooden piece that evokes the regal elegance of yesteryear.
3. Panelled bedhead
In an age where storage space is at a premium, it makes sense to combine your feature bedhead with some handy shelves. A panelled or shelved bedhead gives you an aesthetically pleasing place to store your favourite books and also adds colour and life with a few indoor plants or other adornments.
4. Colourful bedhead
A colourful bedhead is one of the most effective ways to add a striking pop of vibrancy to your room. Perhaps the rest of your décor is neutral tones and you want to spice things up a little, or perhaps you’re a colour and pattern fanatic who loves to mix and match.
5. Rattan or cane bedhead
A woven rattan or cane headboard is an eye-catching way to bring those relaxed beachy vibes to your bedroom. Constructed from natural tones and materials, these bedhead styles can fit in almost any bedroom’s colour palette. They also provide a visual nod to the laidback holiday style of a tropical getaway—a taste of Bora Bora or Hawaii, right in your own bedroom.
