Bedroom Nightstand. Thursday , November 23rd , 2017 - 09:34:47 AM
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.
Not all table lamps are created equal for reading. Ideally, the base of the shade should sit level with your eyes when you're propped up in bed, and the shade should direct light toward you rather than channeling it up or down. Floor lamps also are an option, but they compete for space with nightstands, so it can be harder to make them work.
Dresser or chest. Rather than restricting your night-table furniture to the small or low profile, you might go bold with a relatively large piece of furniture like a dresser or chest of drawers. This can provide much-needed extra storage, particularly in a narrow bedroom. The key with a larger piece is to create balance. When the bed is placed in the middle of the wall, add another large piece of furniture to the other side; a second dresser or a desk typically will work. Be sure both pieces are similar in height and width to create a more symmetrical look. Adding lamps of the same height on either side of the bed can add to the harmonious effect when your night tables don't match. Tip: If you opt for two different lamps and they are not exactly the same height, place one or two books beneath the shorter lamp to give it the extra height.
