A rustic style is growing in popularity in bedroom furniture, and the rustic barnwood headboard is one of the most popular styles to date. With this style of headboard, a wide piece of wood, which can be painted any color you want, is nailed into place over the front of the bed. This gives the appearance of a headboard that is standing tall as opposed to being a flat piece of wood.
Rustic Barnwood Headboard
What happens with this type of headboard is the front of the bed is covered by a wide piece of lumber that is cut and painted a contrasting color. Usually the color of the wood covering the front of the bed is white or cream while the back part of the bed is covered in red, brown, or black paint.
When installing the headboard, you want to secure it securely so it doesn’t move around during the night. You can secure the headboard using nuts, bolts, and screws to hold it in place.
An end headboard style is not as popular because it is more difficult to achieve. This style requires a piece of wood that is the same width as the bed and a large piece of lumber is nailed to the underside of the bed.
The great thing about this style is, you can cover the front with a piece of cloth, or area rug, that matches the paint color of the headboard. You could even use some rugs, or some colorful fabric, to cover the side and back. I would not recommend having a section of area rug covering the top so you have some shade on the top when you are sleeping.
If you want to add some rustic furniture to your bedroom, you can use a piece of distressed furniture that is painted in a very dark color that is rustic. You can then cover the distressed furniture with rugs, raffia, or fabric.
This style is perfect for a bedroom that has a romantic feel to it. The rustic colors will add that romantic touch that is alluring to most people.
The rustic style can give you the desired atmosphere of a rustic country home without the expense of a full home built with pine and cedar. Your family can spend quality time together in the bedroom without all the unnecessary fuss.
