Small Master Bedroom? Add Drama with a Tufted Headboard!

1 Feb

Mary from Toledo, Ohio ‘s e-mail asked “I have a small master bedroom and I only have room for one end table and a dresser. What can I do to make it dramatic?”

The end table and dresser are functional items, so your bed should be the focal point.  The first thing noticeably visually.  To bring attention to a small room is to definitely have a dramatic headboard!

What comes to my mind, is a upholstered tufted headboard.  If you are thinking cost, check out your local thrift shops or you can even make it yourself, if you are crafty.  OK! If not;  Humble Abode has some reasonable priced tufted headboards in a few styles and fabrics.  The fabric can be luxurious, like velvet or simple like a linen cotton.  It’s whatever you prefer!

Then the next step will be to get a beautiful bed ensemble to complete the room; using the headboard as the backdrop.  My favorite shopping place for you to start would be www.overstock.com and Marshalls®.   Now if you don’t prefer to have the tufted headboard, there are other styles. Whatever you decide, just remember the bed requires to be the focal point of the room <since it’s a small master>; followed by some nice window treatments and accessories.

Also, make sure you measure carefully the wall in which the headboard will rest and the size of your mattress.  Add the bed’s height to the height from the top of the bed to the height of the headboard, which is the headboard’s height.
There should only be a one to one 1/2 inch of the headboard showing when the mattress is in place (width).  Since the room is small, storage of items is also key, so make sure everything has a place.

Good luck!
