Our first proposal is to use a collection of different-sized art store canvases to create an artsy, gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color to get a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown above.

You can also use recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. In order to add dimension paint the sides in a contrasting color.

2. Create a Luxurious Black and White Bedroom Headboard

This bedroom design is proof that black and white is always a good idea, even when it comes to bedroom design.

Some may say that a black and white combination is too dark for a bedroom, especially when we use black walls, but as you can see on this room decoration, it all depends on how you create the decor of the space. In order to get the luxury interior design the perfect piece can be a crystal chandelier.

3. Make an Eclectic Vintage Map Headboard
