Headboard with side shelves
Streamlined and unfussy, this headboard beautifully showcases the untreated color variation of solid teak wood. It has unnoticeable shelves on both sides of the frame, great for those small bits and bobs—reading glasses, tissue box, essential oils, alarm clock—that tend to clutter up nightstands.
Given its natural finish and minimalist aesthetic, this headboard with side storage adds a subtle touch of earthiness that’s ideal for most decor schemes, including contemporary, coastal, Bohemian, and modern urban. If you find the headboard looks a bit too plain for your liking, decorate the top with a series of small vases, a few candles, or perhaps your favorite picture frames.
An upholstered headboard that tilts out
Adorned in a dark grey and rustic brown finish, this refined headboard with hidden storage features a combination of solid wood open shelves and linen upholstery, padded with high-density foam. When opened up, it reveals an internal compartment that lets you stash your bedtime reads, diary, bed linens, headphones, and other odds and ends that you want to keep tucked away.
If you’re looking to create a classy ambiance in your room, this storage headboard won’t disappoint.
Pair it with other grey furnishings, such as a rug or curtains and you’ll have a space that is not only cohesive but also cozy and dashingly elegant.
Storage headboard with secret compartments all over
Featuring lots of storage concealed behind two swing doors and lower side doors, this headboard comes in two different sizes: Queen and King. It boasts a clean, uncluttered look with sleek lines, a geometric frame, and stunning neutral colors.
The honey color is an ideal choice for rustic and loft-style bedrooms whereas the off-white option is perfect for minimalist and contemporary spaces. Moreover, this functional piece can be used with any bed frame since it’s wall-mounted. Just make sure the thickness of the mattress is not more than 11.5 inches, if not it will block the doors from flipping open.
Modern sliding bookcase headboard
Crafted from engineered wood with a sleek frame, this headboard flaunts simple elegance in a modern design. Two sliding doors allow you to keep certain items out of sight and easy to grab at the same time whereas the open cubbies provide an airy effect. It is available in a choice of four colors—distressed gray, dark taupe, red cocoa, and white.
Even though this unit goes perfectly with neutral color palettes, it looks even more tasteful when paired with bright decorative accents, like a stack of colorful books or a fresh bouquet of vibrant flowers.
Closet behind headboard storage
With a mixture of spacious cabinets, a drawer, and a clothing rail, this massive headboard is the ultimate storage solution for all your linen, clothes, pillows, and bedside necessities. Sporting a silver walnut color with steel handles, this piece is constructed from high-quality manufactured wood and comes with a total of 10 shelves.
Although this headboard is exceptionally functional and can double up as a closet, it is 94.5 inches wide and will need a considerable amount of room to be able to fit. With this in mind, it may not be the best option for cramped spaces.
Headboard storage with a middle closed cabinet
Red Barrel Studio®
Dainty crown molding, traditional oval knobs, and a remarkably versatile black finish make this bookcase headboard a great focal point to have in any bedroom. In addition, it has a low profile and slim silhouette, but still offers a decent amount of storage space in the form of open shelves and a cabinet right in the middle.
Since the doors on the cabinet open outwards, you’ll have to make sure that your mattress isn’t higher than the compartments. That being said, it’s good to keep in mind that the lower shelf is 29 inches from the floor.
