Nelia Edelmira. Bedroom Nightstand. November 25th , 2017.
Imagine walking into your bedroom and seeing clear, clean surfaces. The bedcovers are smooth and inviting, the pillows are plumped, and on your nightstand is nothing but a vase of fresh flowers, a candle, a cup of herbal tea and your journal and pen. Any clothing has been easily put away because it fits within your dresser and closet space with room to spare. If you have children, imagine finally coming into this beautiful space, closing the door behind you and enjoying a few moments of blissful peace and quiet.
Increase light and ventilation. Locating your bedroom at the corner of your home can give you windows on two or more adjacent walls. This gives you the added benefit of cross ventilation and a softer natural light.
Bookshelves are stalwart storage options for so much more than novels and nonfiction. If you have enough space on one side of your bed, try placing a bookshelf against the bed wall. It can house books (of course) as well as decorative boxes for storing personal items like those earplugs and eye masks. If it has an open back or a hole for threading out a cord, then the shelf can store a small reading lamp too. If your bedroom door is in a corner of the bedroom, as is quite common, the bookcase will probably look best placed in the corner farthest from the door. This placement will make the room appear more balanced upon entry. This rule doesn't apply if your door is in the middle of the room. Tip: Keep your bookshelf neat and styled by mixing books with decorative items. Try color coordinating the spines of the books and alternating their placement from horizontal to vertical. Both strategies will help create an intentionally designed look.
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.
