Metal Headboard Inspiration

Posted by Arc and Hammer on

There seems to be a limited amount of uses for metal as a material in the bedroom. Unlike a kitchen, you want your bedroom to be a soft and inviting space (typically!) 

However, incorporating metal into your headboard design can be a unique design edge that differentiates your space from everyone else. We've scouted the most common (and most unique) DIY and store-bought headboards that are made from metal. Let's take a look

Most common: 

A wireframe style head and footboard are reminiscent of simpler times. Often used in minimally styled spaces, the style works well with french-country furnishings and farmhouse designs. Double twin beds in this style for a child's bedroom are also a favorite. While there are many variables to consider in this style, a classic black finish seems to match with nearly everything! For a pop of fun, try a color or different shape. 

 

Really DIY:

Here are a few other fun ideas ––
