Sure, you can change up the look of your bed with new sheets or a duvet cover. But have you considered switching up the headboard (without investing in a new one)? With a favorite blanket, a patterned sheet, or a fabric scrap, it’s simple (and easy to change out whenever you like). We wonder why we didn’t think to try it earlier.

Here are three ideas:

1. Fabric

Above: We first took note of the idea in Before & After: A Soulless Apartment Gets the ‘More Is More’ Treatment, where designer Sophie Rowell tucked vintage Indian Kantha fabric over the bed frame. “Drape one over the headboard to create a new look with very little expense,” she said.

2. Quilt

3. Rug
