Orin Rivka. Bedroom Nightstand. November 25th , 2017.
Lovely lavender. Light-to-medium purple shades are thought to ease our stress levels. If you could use a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom, give a lavender or lilac hue a try. I suggest sticking to a shade that is fairly pure or saturated, rather than one with an abundance of gray in it. A heavily grayed-out purple or lavender can feel gloomy, especially on overcast days.
A floating shelf provides enough space for the nightstand essentials: a vase of fresh flowers, a candle — perhaps in a soothing scent like lavender — and a book. The designer saved surface space in this North London bedroom by choosing a hanging pendant. With no room to go wide along the sides of this bed, the designer created a narrow but deep shelf. This photo of the same bedroom shows how the floating shelves line up neatly with the walls of the niche. The space beneath them is still available for stashing items; here, it's a black case, but baskets, decorative boxes or even a stack of books would also work.There's no reason a floating shelf needs to be wooden. Blogger Michelle Hinckley found this vintage version at an estate sale and spray-painted it white. A slim task lamp offers lightweight illumination. This bedroom has a bit more space on either side of the bed. Nonetheless, it's a good illustration of how floating nightstands can create the feeling of buoyancy in a room. Because floor space isn't taken up beneath the wall-mounted tables, the room reads as a little more open. The pathways on either side of this bad aren't wide, but the two floating cubes create the illusion of more space since they don't fill the entire gap. Pendant lights save surface space. The feature wall is planked cedar. This floating nightstand is in the same wood as the behind-the-bed feature wall and has a contemporary, minimalist look. This space isn't as small as some of the others, but the wall behind the bed doesn't have much space on either side of the bed frame. The floating shelves have two layers, offering more space to stash nighttime necessities. This floating option isn't really a shelf at all but a ledge built into the wall planking. It holds a clock radio and plant, with room left over for glasses and cellphone.
The nightstand next to your bed is one of the most essential surfaces in your bedroom. It provides a home for books, photo frames and sleepy-time necessities like eye masks and earplugs. Most of us opt for the classic version: a small square table with a drawer and a matching counterpart on the other side of the bed. But this functional area doesn't have to be so, well, square. Swapping out that classic nightstand for a piece of non-bedroom furniture can add personality as well as function to your bedroom. Here are unique alternatives to the classic nightstand. The best part about these options? They are common enough pieces that you may already have them on hand. If not, you'll be able to pick them up for a reasonable price at a garage sale or flea market.
Step stool. A repurposed step stool is a smart, budget-friendly and space-saving substitute for a night table. Whether designed for a child's room, the kitchen or the garage, stools often have small proportions that are good for small spaces. A typical step stool measures 15 to 18 inches wide and about 21 inches high, making it a good fit for many beds. Tip: Since a table lamp might take over much of the surface area of your step stool, consider installing a wall sconce above it instead. That way, you'll have room on the stool to place books, reading glasses or a vase. If your bedroom allows space, pair the stool with a similar-size furniture piece on the other side of the bed.
