Leiko Saki. Bedroom Nightstand. November 20th , 2017.
Not all table lamps are created equal for reading. Ideally, the base of the shade should sit level with your eyes when you're propped up in bed, and the shade should direct light toward you rather than channeling it up or down. Floor lamps also are an option, but they compete for space with nightstands, so it can be harder to make them work.
A floating shelf provides enough space for the nightstand essentials: a vase of fresh flowers, a candle — perhaps in a soothing scent like lavender — and a book. The designer saved surface space in this North London bedroom by choosing a hanging pendant. With no room to go wide along the sides of this bed, the designer created a narrow but deep shelf. This photo of the same bedroom shows how the floating shelves line up neatly with the walls of the niche. The space beneath them is still available for stashing items; here, it's a black case, but baskets, decorative boxes or even a stack of books would also work.There's no reason a floating shelf needs to be wooden. Blogger Michelle Hinckley found this vintage version at an estate sale and spray-painted it white. A slim task lamp offers lightweight illumination. This bedroom has a bit more space on either side of the bed. Nonetheless, it's a good illustration of how floating nightstands can create the feeling of buoyancy in a room. Because floor space isn't taken up beneath the wall-mounted tables, the room reads as a little more open. The pathways on either side of this bad aren't wide, but the two floating cubes create the illusion of more space since they don't fill the entire gap. Pendant lights save surface space. The feature wall is planked cedar. This floating nightstand is in the same wood as the behind-the-bed feature wall and has a contemporary, minimalist look. This space isn't as small as some of the others, but the wall behind the bed doesn't have much space on either side of the bed frame. The floating shelves have two layers, offering more space to stash nighttime necessities. This floating option isn't really a shelf at all but a ledge built into the wall planking. It holds a clock radio and plant, with room left over for glasses and cellphone.
A console table is a versatile piece of furniture that can be useful in many rooms of the house. It's slim in profile and airy in design, and can provide a small drawer for storage of personal items. In the bedroom, a console table can pull double duty as a nightstand and desk, or a nightstand and vanity, thanks to the open space that allows you to place a stool, ottoman or chair underneath. Console tables, seen here, frame a bed nicely when the same or similar style is placed on either side of the bed. Tip: If you aren't pairing matching tables, be sure the other night table is at least the height of the bed and of a similar width as the console table.
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.
