Orin Rivka. Bedroom Nightstand. November 06th , 2017.
Imagine walking into your bedroom and seeing clear, clean surfaces. The bedcovers are smooth and inviting, the pillows are plumped, and on your nightstand is nothing but a vase of fresh flowers, a candle, a cup of herbal tea and your journal and pen. Any clothing has been easily put away because it fits within your dresser and closet space with room to spare. If you have children, imagine finally coming into this beautiful space, closing the door behind you and enjoying a few moments of blissful peace and quiet.
Simple circulation. Try to keep your circulation on one side of the room. Hotels do a great job of this. There's a reason 90 percent of hotels have the same floor plan: because it's simple and it works. Circulation plans become a little more challenging with en suite rooms (bedrooms with bathrooms attached) or bedrooms that have doors to the outside. To save on space, pay attention to where you locate the bathroom and closet in your bedroom. Rooms that have bathroom or closet access before the sleeping area require a longer hall (see the left-hand plan). If you organize the circulation so the bathroom and closet are accessed through the sleeping area (right-hand plan), you don't need a separate hall, and you can add the circulation space into the room to make it feel larger, too.
Are you at a loss for what type of night stand to purchase? First, consider how much space you have. If you have a small bedroom think about ways that your night stands can serve another function. A table for a nearby armchair or a small chest of drawers for clothes storage are two convenient options. Allow room for table lamps, or install wall mounted sconces to read by. I am a firm believer in the power of drawers - they make your life easier, less cluttered, and more functional. At the very least, try to find a table with a shelf to stash your magazines and books.
Calm the visual noise. Ideally, the bedroom would be solely devoted to rest and relaxation, but if you live in a smaller space, this simply may not be possible. If you must make room for your desk in the bedroom, aim for a setup that allows you to hide everything away when you're done working. Tuck work-related items into drawers and cabinets, leaving surfaces as clean and clear as possible for a restful feeling. Take action: Remove anything that reminds you of work, bills or to-dos from within visual range of your bed. If you can find a place to store these items in a different room, do so. If not, clear out a drawer or shelf in a closed cabinet to keep them out of view.
