There are so many styles and ways to decorate our bedrooms that it makes you dizzy! Choosing a style or theme, then colors, textures and patterns, then furniture and accessories and finally you’ll get it. In all that swirl of ideas don’t forget that even the smallest details are important because they add to the décor, highlight it and help you to create an ambience you want. One of such details is a headboard: this part of the bed can really influence your mood and the overall look. If your bed doesn’t have one, you can always make or buy it, there are a lot of ideas to choose from. Today I’d like to share the tutorials for making one of the most popular headboards – tufted ones.
What Is A Tufted Headboard?
It’s an upholstered one, and this special look is achieved by threading through layers of fabric or leather, often in a pattern, and securing the ends of the thread with a knot or button. The dense clusters that this technique creates are known as “tufts.” Such a headboard looks timelessly elegant and has already become classic. It can fit almost any bedroom depending on the material and buttons you choose.
What Are The Types Of Tufted Headboards?
There are a lot of kinds to try: DIY tufted headboards of fabric or leather, DIY diamond tufted headboards, DIY framed tufted headboards, DIY nailed tufted headboards and so on, choose whatever you like!
How To DIY A Tufted Headboard?
Tufted headboards are pretty easy to DIY, you need a piece of wood or an old headboard you don’t like, some fabric or leather of your choice and some proper buttons or just usual ones as you can just upholster them with your fabric or leather. A necessary thing here is some foam to put inside as otherwise you won’t achieve that soft tufted look. Find more details to DIY your own tufted headboard reading the tutorials below.
