A place to rest and relax, we spend more hours of in our bedroom than anywhere else in the house. A vital spot of the house, it also plays a crucial role in our daily lives - which is why the decoration of it is something worth paying attention to. Over the next couple weeks we will be rolling out a series on turning your bedroom into a sanctuary, featuring different mini-projects you can do in one small swoop to make the challenge that more palpable.
Today, we’re focusing on the headboard (or lack thereof). Why is this important? Well, for starters, that wall is the largest surface of the room. Decorating that blank canvas could certainly define the whole ambiance of the space. Feng shui guidelines for a good bed call for - yep, you guess it - a good headboard. While you are drifting off to sleep, your body is going into a very complex and busy energy repair work on many levels. Subconsciously, your head needs good backing, protection and support, just like your back needs it when you are sitting in a chair for extended periods of time.
Realizing that most of those who don’t already have a headboard, don’t have one for a good reason - either the design of the frame (think platform) makes it nearly impossible, or maybe the time and money involved with buying a new bedroom piece isn’t really in the cards at the moment. Don’t worry - we’ve got some D.I.Y. solutions for using an alternative headboard.
