Let's say you're not looking for a necessarily more functional nightstand and bedside. What if you just want a fresh idea to really add interest to your bedroom? These seven rooms feature a unique take on the nightstand/beside area. Will one of them inspire your sleep space?
1. Perk it up with plants (pictured above)
We love the idea of waking up right next to your very own cheery plant nursery every morning with a bedside overflowing with your favorite live green things instead of an alarm clock or smart phone. Puts nature at the forefront of your day! Photo spotted on Lily.
2. Display your favorite stuff
A glass door curio cabinet (here used for folded clothes storage) could be an interesting addition to a bedside; you could fill it with anything you felt added to cheering you up the moment you wake up. Photo by Andy Liffner via A Merry Mishap.
3. Desk double duty
Small spaces in particular could use this idea the most, but also anyone who wants to wake up, roll over and get to work might like a small desk tucked cozily next to their bed. Via Scout & Nimble.
4. Let it be simple and lovely
The thing is, your nightstand doesn't have to be a complicated thing. If you're trying to bring more simplicity and minimalism into your life and home, you might benefit from a sweet, uncluttered chair or small table that merely features a couple of aesthetically lovely things — not an entire arsenal of things.
5. Make it musical (or artistic, or...)
Who says you've got to have a table or nightstand at all? Why not place your favorite hobby right next to your bed? Or the thing you wish you did more of? It's an idea. Seen on Hunch.
6. Treat and serve yourself
A bar cart isn't just for displaying your cocktail supplies or treating your guests! You deserve a treat as soon as you wake up and before you go to bed, and a vintage bar cart by your bedside can bring it. Shot by Stoffer Photography for One Kings Lane via At Home In Love.
7. Nesting nightstands
What's better than one bedside table? Two to three! A set of sweet nesting tables are not only good looking aesthetically, they bring a richness and fullness to your bedside and make your bedroom feel more like a nice boutique hotel than just the place you crash. Spotted on The Makerista.
What are some of your favorite unique ways to make your bedside something fresh and fun?
