Architectural details create a functional headboard in this attic bedroom. Shelves flank the bed and provide storage for reading materials, lamps, and photos on both sides of the bed. Strips of molding add interest to the space between the shelves.
Floating shelves provide plenty of modern storage for pictures and small treasures. Large-scale framed mirrors boldly punctuate the black-and-white scheme.
Wall of Storage
Open shelving provides plenty of storage and display opportunities in this bedroom. The top tier of shallow shelves holds decorative items, while the lower shelves stow books, lamps, and other bedtime necessities. Having a wall of storage eliminates the need for other units and frees up floor space, which is ideal in a small bedroom.
Give your bedroom country chic style with a collection of wooden shelves. Scour flea markets, garage sales, or furniture stores for shelves in different sizes and shapes. Paint the shelves the same color, hang, and display.
Covering wall space beside and above a bed with shallow custom or stock cabinets (the upper cabinet doors are removed) capitalized on the underused spaced.
Nooks and Crannies
A thick headboard (this one is nearly 12 inches deep) offers a generous top display ledge and side cubbies ideal for favorite books and bedside essentials.
Create instant artwork by insetting the wall above your bed. Add warmth to the space by covering it with wood and topping it off with molding. Consider customizing the nooks such as the small one that's just the right size for an alarm clock.
Simple and Sleek
Lining up three inexpensive bookcases behind your bed is a quick and budget-friendly way to spice up the bedroom.
