Great Decor Ideas for Wall Behind the Bed

Besides using pictures or photographs, here’re some decor ideas for wall behind the bed with focus on the bed.

It’s very trendy to use wallpaper panels to create a tall, virtual ‘bedhead’. You can also be adventurous and use three different wallpaper patterns – either complementary or contrasting – for an eclectic or funky look. The downside of using wallpaper is that it is permanent, so you have to be very sure you like the effect and the pattern before you put it up. In addition, you wouldn’t be able to take it with you if you move out.

A more flexible option to bedroom wall decoration is to hang fabric panels, which can be taken down for cleaning or changed when you get tired of the color scheme. This idea also has the benefit of being a great DIY project you can complete in just one weekend.

Depending on the effect you want, you can hang the panels up individually on a cable wire or a thin chain (from any DIY shops) suspended form two hooks on either side of the bed.

To create the panels, simply fold the top of the fabric over to create an open tunnel and sew, then attach a row of fishing weights or decorative tassels to the opposite end so they will fall straight up. Slip the cable through, hang and voila – a beautifully dressed bed.

Some more decor ideas for wall behind the bed is to look at wall cladding with wood. Large wooden panels can be used to make a grid effect. Dark wood tends to create a warm sense of enclosure while lighter woods, such as light oak, bleached teak, elm or maple, tends to be refreshing.
