Surprisingly, I don't miss them. Even with the much larger bed in the room, the space looks just as roomy and spacious as it did before — mostly because we chose to get rid of the tables. Sure it's going to take a little getting used to, and I'll have to find a new place for my nightly glass of water, but I'm really enjoying the change.
This new change got me thinking — are there others that share this same desire to go bed-side tableless? If you're not ready to go for the gusto, maybe explore the option of using a less traditional side-table. Chairs and dressers are popular alternatives, as well as stacks of books and suitcases.
Have you said adios to your bed-side tables?
