However, some tend to be a little dull to achieve that effect. There are many factors that make your private harbor in the house dull and uninteresting.

Be sure to match coordinate the colors properly though.
- Repurposed wood – May it be a beautiful palette of wood or some drift wood you got from your grandmother’s backyard, it can turn into a creative piece of headboard through creativity and imagination. Wood is always a beautiful element to incorporate in your room.

- Sports gear – Treat that sportsman in you by making your bed closer to where you passion is by incorporating your sport into the headboard. Some repurpose old skateboards and surfboards by putting them together (side-by-side) as one huge board.
