What I really really like, is a low wall or some kind ledge behind a bed. If you’ve got a head end and a place for decoration all in one. In my bedroom can’t (because then there is no walking space), but a wall behind the bed is on my wish list for the next House! Such an edge to decorate to make fast by a shelf behind your bed to assemble, but it can also with cabinets or a real wall.

I find it very nice if the low wall spans the entire length of the room, but in part, more like a headboard, can too. Paint it in the same color as the wall so he doesn’t really stands out, but still present. Or give the wall a different color or make him a different kind of material to make extra attention to this. On the edge you can, for example, books and a lamp, but also decoration such as picture frames. Depending on the width of the edge behind the bed is a bedside table is no longer necessary, making your room more spacious look.
