Support/stability for partial wall - Our MBR reno-plan has a similar partial wall structure (177"long X 78" high). Our contractor is trying to figure out how to stabilize this partial wall and keep it freestanding. There is not enough room to have a "return" behind (4.5' passage to include closet on opposite wall) for support. Suggestions? metal support? tieing into floor joists?

This wall was inserted into the floor framing and secured further through the concrete floor.

Thanks. Our contractor stabilized it by tying it under the floor. We're happy with the results.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to The Head of the Bed
The placement of this bed is just as important as the bed itself. I love the use of the partial wall as a sort of extended headboard.
Melissa Rudy added this to Rest in Style with Handsome Headboards
For wide-open spaces, a high headboard can double as a room divider, creating pockets of seclusion. I like how this vertical freestanding headboard also provides additional space for wall art and lighting fixtures.
Becky Harris added this to How to Compose a Relaxing Bedroom
This room feels like it's halfway exposed to the great outdoors. I find this relaxing, though people who hate the great outdoors may not.

Shawn Gauthier added this to Float Your Bed for a Great New Look
Another idea for a headboard on a floating bed is a larger wall partition. This helps to create more distinct areas, like a hallway for the closet space in this photo.

Sandy Rubinfeld added this to room | bedroom design for students, small
July 15, 2012
Slate-blue, white and light to medium shades of wood are great colour combos to promote the serenity of a bedroom. This one is also rich in textural difference, from the sleek gloss of what looks like polished concrete, to the wood texture, to the soft throw and upholstered mid-century chair. This room is very restrained and coordinated in its colour usage. For instance, that great chair has a white frame behind the great slate-blue upholstery. The blue throw at the foot of the bed perfectly balances all the white bed linens. There is a rather unusual approach to art on the wall behind the headboard: It looks to me like small cubes (but can't tell for sure)
