Don’t let a small space keep you from getting your dream bedroom. Improvise and adapt our bedside table ideas to save space
Your bedside table can say more about you than any other part of the house. Ditch the typical boxy ones and choose from these distinct ideas to style the corner, especially if you have space constraints.
1. Wall-mounted shelves
Save space by mounting up wooden or MDF shelves on the wall. Place one or more, at an arm’s distance and ensure you have everything you need without getting off the bed.
2. Travel bags
This is an excellent way to “store” your trunks and suitcases, while giving them another purpose. Start by placing one atop the other to meet the height of your mattress for easy access to your bedside essentials.
3. Rustic ladder
Repurpose an old ladder into an open shelved nightstand. Give it a distressed look or repaint to match the bedroom décor. Use the gap underneath as storage space.
All you need is a plank, strong, long ropes and holders in the ceiling to create a gardenesque look in the bedroom. To complete the scene, place a planter among your belongings.
Take a pick of your favourite books and stack them vertically atop each other to create your very own bookshelf-style bedside table.
6. Planter stand
Bring in the outdoors by placing a planter storage stand inside your bedroom. It offers enough space to store items and also gives the bedroom a minimalist, organic look.
Floating shelves also make an excellent alternative to side tables. These allow flexibility of size and can be long or short as per your usage preference. Be careful about placing them at a level so that you don’t bang your head against a corner while getting out of bed.
A planter shelf helps bring an aspect of outdoors, inside. Prop a few succulents or make a beeline for just some good old aloe vera to store next to your bedside.
Rethink about discarding your old wooden stepladder. Upcycle it for a rustic bedside table that also provides plenty of storage space.
