If the room is narrow, the headboard mustn’t further diminish the atmosphere. Therefore, it is recommended that the headboard covers the entire length of the wall and is not too high, around 30 cm more than the height of the bed.
Another tip is to select a headboard of the same tone as the wall if the room is tiny. Now, if the place has a high ceiling, the long and low headboard helps to give the feeling of proportion in the environment.
On the other hand, if the space is very high, it is advisable to do the opposite, opting for a shorter but taller headboard. Regarding colors, it is worth betting on a tone that highlights the environment.
To complement the decoration of the room, the tip is to bet on points of light, for example, with a lamp, a floor lamp, or a lamp on the bed.
