If you have a small bedroom, you may have to make compromises when it comes to furniture. No matter how tight the fit, though, one thing you need to make room for is a place for all your bedside essentials. A nightstand is something you take for granted until you don't have one and find yourself without a place for your favorite books, a light to read by, your nightly tea, alarm, etc. Luckily, there are creative solutions out there for fitting a nightstand into your small space.


  1. A simple, narrow options like this one from Love Peace Pionies allows for storage both on the top and below.
  2. Reduce your footprint with a wall-mounted option like this one spotted on HGTV.
  3. Small space and on a budget? Try a chair that you can pick up at a flea market or thrift shop, like in this bedroom from Family Living featured on Emmas Design Blogg.
  4. Maximize your wall space with a shelf either beside or above your bed for easy access, as in this room from Solebich.
  5. Combine storage and light in one with this creative project from DesignSponge.
