Even if your bedroom is barely bigger than your bed, you still need a spot somewhere to park your alarm clock, your cell phone, your nighttime reading, that glass of water you might need to reach for in the middle of the night. So we've scoured the internet for nightstand options that will provide you with a place to stash your stuff, while hardly taking up any space at all.
The Nordli nightstand is less than a foot wide, and has a hidden shelf inside for a power strip to charge your electronics. $79.99 from IKEA.
Wall-mounted, or 'floating', nighstands, are a great choice for a small bedroom — they don't take up any floor space at all, so you can stack things underneath, or just leave the space open to make the room feel more spacious. This one is $550 from Urbancase.
The front panel of this wall-hung nightstand flips down to reveal a hidden shelf. And it's only 12 inches wide, so it can fit into the smallest of spots. Rope box, $180 from Light + Ladder.
Not only is this nightstand wall-mounted, but it also has a shelf below, which doubles the amount of space you have for catching books, water glasses, and electronics. Floating bedside table, $123.74 from Urbansize.
For the true minimalist who only needs a few things on their bedside table, there's this lovely wall-hung design, starting at $285 Aud from Tuckbox.
For the not-so-minimalists there's the Componibili, spotted here in a bedroom from My Scandinavian Home. This funny little plastic workhorse is only 12 inches wide (if you order the small size) and has compartments that are ideal for concealing your stuff. It's available, starting at $140, from Hive Modern.
The IKEA TRONES shoe storage box makes a great nightstand in bedrooms (like this one from Decor8) where the width of the space next to the bed doesn't allow for even a small nightstand. It's only seven inches deep and can be turned and hung lengthwise along the adjacent wall.
