Looking for bedroom decorating ideas? Take a tour of these beautiful bedrooms with upholstered headboards.

Not long ago we added an upholstered headboard in the master bedroom after having the mattresses simply resting on a frame for several years. We had upgraded from a full size bed to a queen and I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, so we didn’t have a headboard.

Although I liked the idea of building an upholstered headboard myself, I’m not good with that kind of thing so the DIY never happened. And I mistakenly thought that all upholstered headboards were super expensive. I’m very budget conscious so I didn’t really consider buying one until I did a some research and found some very affordable ones.

It was such a simple and inexpensive way to upgrade the look of the room that I’m not sure what took us so long! Today I’m sharing some bedroom decorating ideas plus some very affordable sources for headboards. Get ready to be inspired!

Christmas bedroom with navy and red accents

Here’s how our bedroom looked at Christmas. The tufted headboard doesn’t make a huge impact, but it does a lot to give the room a more finished and cozy look. We chose a neutral color because I like to change out the bedding and accent furniture occasionally and don’t want to be locked in to any one color scheme.
