Even if you have a beautiful headboard, the space above your bed can seem empty if left untouched. This space can be tricky to decorate, but that doesn’t mean you should leave it blank. There are plenty of inexpensive ways to spruce up that space without much work. Here are five ways to make the best of that negative space!
1. Create a Gallery Wall
Whether it is gridded and organized or statement and staggered, a gallery wall is the perfect way to add a little more ‘you’ to your bedroom. Frame your favorite family photos or the landscape photos from your favorite vacation. We added a gallery wall above our bedroom wall along with some decorative antique lamps on our bedside tables. We kept it simple but it with the mere cost of $25 for some photos and frames, our space went from plain to decorative.
2. Add a Set of Shelves
Even if you don’t need the extra storage space, you can use shelves to add small decor that is unique to you. Your favorite books, small planters, or even picture frames are a great way to personalize the shelves.
3. Wallpaper the Wall
If you’re worried about adding anything above your bed, consider creating an accent wall with floral wallpaper. Many places sell peel and stick paper so if you decide you don’t love the style or you’re renting and cannot make a permanent change, you can still try out wallpaper.
4. Consider a Tasteful Tapestry or Wall Hanging
Tapestries aren’t just for college dorm rooms. If you aren’t ready to add shelving fixtures but want something a little more than wallpaper, consider adding a pop of color with a tapestry or a statement yarn wall hanging.
