Likewise, solid-colored headboards are perfect for playing second fiddle to lively, eclectic interiors. Plus, they come with an added bonus — you aren’t required to sacrifice any square footage!

Items you might even already have on hand — such as blankets, shelving and even extra curtains — can be turned into a recycled bed frame that will bring a bit of flair to a primary bedroom, guest room or kids’ room.
