Looking for a new design for your bedroom? Sometimes the addition of a headboard can be just the five-star statement you need, turning a standard bed into a wow piece and your bed into a focal point around which the rest of the bedroom décor is decided. “For the real luxury hotel feel, I’d suggest opting for a grand, oversized design or getting one specially made in an interesting shape or material,” advises Chrissie Rucker MBE, founder of The White Company. Read on to find out how to get the right look, and once you’ve decided, lie back and enjoy it.

1. Space-saving and eye-catching, wall tiles make a decorative look that resembles a bedhead. Esparza tiles cost £8.40 each from Bert & May.
