Oversized Headboards

Inspiration Gallery

Although I'm usually one for spare simplicity in the bedroom, oversized headboards are one maximalist trend that I can get behind — especially when the headboard giants don't detract from the clean-lined feel of a room.

Today, an oversized headboard doesn't necessarily equal ornate. Some of my favorite inspirations are upholstered headboards that anchor the bed wall and add a hint of plush comfort — all the while retaining a rather simple sensibility.

• 1 & 2 An un-tufted, simple upholstered headboard that extends just beyond the bed frame or to the edge of the bedside tables gives a sleep space prominence and texture without being over the top/
• 3 & 4 A wide headboard set shared between two twin beds lends a grown up, casual feel.
• 5 & 6 And for those who prefer more dramatic approach, a headboard that extends almost to the ceiling lends a luxe feel.
