Orin Rivka. Bedroom Nightstand. November 25th , 2017.
Because the bedroom is one of the simplest rooms in the house, it's often overlooked. One of the first steps to a great bedroom design is having an efficient and well-designed floor plan that gives you everything you want — no matter how much space you start with.
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.
Night tables are pretty essential pieces of bedroom furniture. But many tend to be a bit utilitarian in terms of style, and they can get cluttered with our necessities. To give your bedroom the royal treatment, first declutter your nightstand. Remove excess paperwork and posessions, leaving only lighting, a book and perhaps a small vase of flowers. Next, swap out your current nightstand for one with a luxury finish — mirror or shagreen is a great option. A subtler route is to choose a piece with reflective hardware, such as crystal or brass. In this bedroom, the mirrored table, shiny lamp and gilded mirror create a regal look even against a plain white wall.
Trunk or suitcases. To add a vintage look to your bedroom, go for those old and weathered suitcases you've had your eye on in the thrift store. Stack them together and place a sturdy tray on top for a fun DIY night table. Opt for a variety of colors to create a design feature in the room, or get crafty and paint your suitcases the same color for a more Shabby Chic look, as in this photo. Similarly, pull that old trunk out of your attic. The large surface area can easily accommodate a lamp and other decorative items. Carry the vintage style of the trunk into the rest of the room by scattering around small accessories like old photo frames or an antique mirror. Tip: The storage space inside a trunk is a perfect place to stow extra blankets.
