Your bedside table is often the piece in your room that gets buried under a mixture of electric appliances, midnight snacks and books you’ve been meaning to read for the last year.
With a few simple tips, you can transform your nightstand from an ordinary piece of furniture into a focal design point. Add your own unique touch with the following style inspiration:
- Have fun with colour
Your bedside is the perfect spot to have some fun with colour, as it can easily be changed with the trends and seasons. Start with a base colour to create a sense of cohesion and then add some customised elements like a bright yellow lamp to shine a light on your day as soon as you wake up. Remember that even when you add some colourful pieces, they should still coordinate with the rest of your room’s furniture and bedding.
- Creative lighting
A beautiful, statement bedside light is one of the easiest ways to brighten up and refresh your room’s look. This copper and grey marble utility lamp will instantly add a sleek style to your space without taking up too much space.
- Create more space
If you have a small room or need some extra storage space, think vertical and decide on a bigger or higher bedside table like the Tempo Shelf. This way you can keep your night time necessities at hand without turning it into a cluttered mess. With more space and storage available, try not to keep too many things plugged in next to your bed that can interrupt your sleep.
Here’s an instant organising trick: use a serving tray, like this metal and glass tray, to keep your odds and ends looking neat.
- Pretty winter blooms
Nothing beats waking up to a fresh bunch of flowers or a succulent right next to your bed. The great thing about plants is that you can change them as often as you want to suit your mood and style. Fill this clear glass vase with roses or peonies for some stylish simplicity.
Create an interesting display together with flowers by using objects such as perfume bottles, vases and jars with different sizes, shapes and heights.
- All shapes and sizes
With furniture pieces such as the Krisna Copper side table or Lona side table, your nightstand can double up as a bed stand. Either one will add a strong yet contemporary look to your bedroom. Pair with a gold foil lamp set with its subtle yet elegant detail and classic linen shade for an accent that says style.
