If you’re in an apartment or aren’t *quite* sure what kind of headboard you want, a wall decal can be a great option! These are less of an investment than a phyical headboard, and they come in unique patterns.

From the brand :”Love a painted textured arch, but don’t want to commit to paint? Then a peel & stick arch is perfect for you! Just stick it to the wall to create that perfect block off colour.”

Next up, we have a unique headboard that is formed out of wall tiles!

This headboard is actually upholstered wall tiles that have been attached to the wall, and I think they’re pretty dang snazzy!! If you have a loft apartment, these tiles would really help separate the bedroom area from the rest of the space. This unique headboard idea is also great for people who are decorating a bedroom with tall ceilings.
