Hettie Arianne Bedroom Nightstand, 2017-11-10 04:20:45. The nightstand next to your bed is one of the most essential surfaces in your bedroom. It provides a home for books, photo frames and sleepy-time necessities like eye masks and earplugs. Most of us opt for the classic version: a small square table with a drawer and a matching counterpart on the other side of the bed. But this functional area doesn't have to be so, well, square. Swapping out that classic nightstand for a piece of non-bedroom furniture can add personality as well as function to your bedroom. Here are unique alternatives to the classic nightstand. The best part about these options? They are common enough pieces that you may already have them on hand. If not, you'll be able to pick them up for a reasonable price at a garage sale or flea market.

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.

If you like the idea of a bold ceiling color but find that orange is a bit too zesty for you, try a more soothing hue, such as green. This green is still vibrant, but because it picks up on the natural verdant hues out the window, it isn't quite as punchy as the previous palette. A super soft sage green on the wall bridges the ceiling color and the pure white trim nicely.

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.

Place them at a point that makes sense for the position in which you read: sitting straight up, stretched out on your stomach etc. You want the beam to shine directly on the page, not at an oblique angle. For maximum flexibility, choose articulated reading lights that you can adjust to suit your height and your reading position. Go for a style that focuses light in a narrow beam rather than diffusing it over the surrounding space.

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.

Don't rush through the design — it's worth taking a little extra time up front to make sure you have a more efficient and functional plan in the end. The truth is, great design doesn't necessarily mean a space that's overly complex and expensive to build. A space that functions better, costs less to build, is more efficient to run and is easier to maintain can be an outstanding example of great design.
