We always emphasize on the fact that your bedroom must reflect your personality, offer a soothing and peaceful sanctuary and should be draped in colors that you love the most. We often tend to forget the last part of that equation in favor of hot trends and unassuming neutral that are glorified beyond necessity. The idea of a ‘picture-perfect’ bedroom draped in neutral colors and accentuated by a few pops of bright hues might seem great on paper, but it really is not the dream bedroom for all of us. Some of us tend to adore a bit more color, character and personality. It is precisely why you should consider a colorful bed frame and headboard!
We constantly talk about how essential it is to repeat accent colors and unique features in a room to give the interior a more curated look. This is no different in the case of live-edge wood and the bedroom. A live-edge headboard coupled with side tables crafted from the same grain of wood can instantly give the contemporary bedroom a huge facelift. Sometimes you can head in a completely different direction by combining posh, polished bedside tables with the rustic live-edge headboard, but repeat the woodsy charm using a bench at the foot of the bed.
There are plenty of directions which you can take while choosing the ideal nightstand. If you are an avid reader who fills his bedroom shelves with books, then a couple of matching bedside tables with adequate drawer space is an absolute must. Others might just need a small bedside table that holds their smartphone, glasses and an alarm clock. No matter what your needs, our latest roundup of trendy finds promises something for everyone!
The floating nightstand definitely cuts back on the amount of space you need to spare for the nightstand. But maybe you want something more on the ground and yet equally efficient! The small, round bedside table is for those who really do not need the nightstand for anything other than holding their smartphone, glasses and a sleek table lamp. It might not really offer any storage, but the small bedside table can be easily moved around when not being used without any hassle.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves, thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form, you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well, how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
The floating nightstand in wood also ushers in textural contrast and you can choose between closed drawers and an open shelf depending on how organized you are. A simple table lamp and LED strip lighting can complete these wall-mounted delights that simply never disappoint! If you are not really someone who has a whole bag of bedside items to store, then the minimal floating nightstand is undoubtedly the best choice.
