The star of your bedroom may be the bed, but don‘t count out nightstands as an essential part of the room. A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home. When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken. Don‘t be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you‘ll want to make sure your table isn‘t too high or low.
When it comes to using wood, there are so many variations to try. To create a sleeker, contemporary headboard look, sand and slightly whitewash the wood slats so they don’t feel rough, look dirty or too rustic in appearance. For extra design appeal, try offsetting your headboard for an asymmetric effect like the image below. Take furniture and home accents and give them new life as a headboard. Some furniture-as-headboard ideas include: If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If your dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
For example, you may want to have a white bed foundation with a selection of tropical blue accents in the summer and warm rich accents including a faux fur throw for the winter like the images below.
