Floating shelf. If your bedside space is challenging or if you prefer a minimalist style try a floating shelf as your night-table alternative. The designs of floating shelves today go beyond the simple white or wood rectangles we've come to know. Stylish shelves can be found in glossy hues and a variety of shapes and can also feature useful storage options. Shelves flanking the sides of the bed often appear built-in and look best when they are the same size and style. Look for a shelf wide or deep enough to hold a small bedside lamp and book and hang it at the same height as the top of your mattress. Tip: Attach the shelf to the wall with anchors and screws that can hold 40 pounds or at least the load that your shelf instructions recommend. Be sure that the combined weight of your bedside items is less than the shelf's maximum load.
Tool chests are not just for the handy. They can be a solid piece of furniture with ample storage. Their typical sizes — 18 to 48 inches wide and in a variety of heights and depths — can easily fit the space next to a bed. Most tool chests come in a glossy color — red and black being the most common — and can be purchased for less than $100. Or perhaps you have one in your garage just waiting to be repurposed. Either way a tool chest is a multifunctional storage piece that can add character and quirk to your bedroom. Tip: Try a tool chest as a nightstand in a kid's room. The bright colors multiple drawers and small scale can add useful storage and a pop of color to your child or teen's room.
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.
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.
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.
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.
