Designing your dorm headboard allows you to create your own home away from home. College is a very exciting time for students and in most cases, it is the first time that you are moving out of your parent’s house and into your own space. To help you on your creative journey here are 10 Dorm Headboard Looks That Will Add Some Flair To Your Room.
1. Black leather headboards
Show off your artistic edge by choosing a sleek black headboard for your upcoming Spring semester. Covered completely in black leather and embossed with brass embellishments, with this cool piece you will be the envy of your roommate and everyone on your floor.
2. Monogrammed headboards
Monogrammed dorm headboards are a super cute and fun option to customize what normally can be a bland and impersonal dorm room. You monogram everything from phone cases and planners to purses and wallets, so why not add bedding to that list. Choose the font and color as you proudly display your initials for the whole dorm to see.
3. A headboard with lights
Twinkle lights, fairy lights, everyone has a few different names for them. But nevertheless, this dorm headboard idea is a classic and everyone’s favorite. With so many color and size options there is a fairy light design for everyone. Drape white or colored lights across your headboard to give the room a warm glow to illuminate as you study.
4. Faux fur headboard
This next dorm headboard looks like something straight out of Sharpay Evans bedroom from High School Musical. Purchase a faux fur headboard that is super soft and will make your dorm room feel a bit more like home. If DIY is more your style, you can visit a fabric or craft store to create your own individual faux fur headboard.
5. Wall stickers
This is a super cute and affordable way to easily customize your dorm headboard. Vinyl stickers are easily removable so you do not have to worry about damaging your college’s walls. Choose from cute tribal designs, skulls, floral or anything else. An added bonus is that if needed, you can change these several times throughout the semester or school year as needed.
6. Carved wood
Carved wood can create a beautifully designed and unique dorm headboard. A quick internet search reveals tons of intricate designs for you to choose from.
Dorm rooms can be notoriously small and lots of times lack adequate storage space. Plastic drawers and bed risers are standard items for college students to be shopping for. If you are looking for your room to feel a bit more like home, you can incorporate from shelving. Place shelving behind the bed that can hold all of your night time essentials, products, and books.
8. Rustic wooden plank
This is my favorite dorm headboard of them all. Create a simplistic and rustic look by creating your own headboard out of wooden planks. It will give your room and your bed a more personal feel as opposed to a bed that you are just renting for the year.
