In lieu of a traditional upholstered headboard, why not try something different. Maybe a tapestry, panels, a large mirror, a found object, a barn-door….there are endless possibilities and some can be executed on a dime!! Here are some ideas…..
Vertically oriented panels covered in a faux leather, can make a small space appear larger. This is a great bed to read in. Faux leather is cost effective and can easily be wiped clean..

A headboard resembling a wooden screen. Screens make a great backdrop for a bed!
