Orin Rivka. Bedroom Nightstand. November 25th , 2017.
Orange above. If you prefer to wake up with a happy jolt, try a bold orange-gold color on the ceiling. An orange ceiling will intensify the blue of the skies outside as blue and orange are complementary colors. With such a strong color on the ceiling, I'd go with light and warm neutrals for the walls and trim.
Tool chests are not just for the handy. They can be a solid piece of furniture with ample storage. Their typical sizes — 18 to 48 inches wide and in a variety of heights and depths — can easily fit the space next to a bed. Most tool chests come in a glossy color — red and black being the most common — and can be purchased for less than $100. Or perhaps you have one in your garage just waiting to be repurposed. Either way, a tool chest is a multifunctional storage piece that can add character and quirk to your bedroom. Tip: Try a tool chest as a nightstand in a kid's room. The bright colors, multiple drawers and small scale can add useful storage and a pop of color to your child or teen's room.
Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove, it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage, but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly, displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day, but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.
Step stool. A repurposed step stool is a smart, budget-friendly and space-saving substitute for a night table. Whether designed for a child's room, the kitchen or the garage, stools often have small proportions that are good for small spaces. A typical step stool measures 15 to 18 inches wide and about 21 inches high, making it a good fit for many beds. Tip: Since a table lamp might take over much of the surface area of your step stool, consider installing a wall sconce above it instead. That way, you'll have room on the stool to place books, reading glasses or a vase. If your bedroom allows space, pair the stool with a similar-size furniture piece on the other side of the bed.
