White Mid Century NightstandWhite Mid Century Nightstand

Some desks are just larger and wider versions of a night table. The flat surface of a desk can house a lamp books and other nighttime necessities. If you have enough space add a chair to create a dual-duty nightstand that also serves as a workspace. Tip: If your bed is placed in the middle of the wall and you add a desk on one side be sure to put another piece of furniture that's at least the height of the mattress on the other side. And use lamps of the same height — they don't need to be the same style — on both pieces of furniture. These things will prevent the room from looking too furniture-heavy on one side.

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.

Glamorous gray. Gray continues to be a top color of choice for new and renovated homes and opting for this color in a bathroom gives it a contemporary edge. In this updated Melbourne Australia period home a neutral palette modernizes while still staying true to its classic roots. There's something refreshingly clean about gray for a bathroom and while both black and white on floors and walls can show dirt a gray bathroom is easy to keep clean. Concrete (and concrete-look tiles) is the material of choice in ultramodern homes and extensions and bathrooms are the latest areas of the house to get the concrete treatment. The wood concrete and black palette of this bathroom continues throughout this Adelaide home. If midgray isn't your thing go for darker charcoals for a tinge of glamour and sophistication. The industrial-style light (with a yellow rather than white globe) and wood countertop add welcome warmth and moodiness to this space. You can never have too much marble in a bathroom especially when the expanse of gray is offset by metallic fixtures and a standout vanity. Marble tiles manage to be classic and contemporary at the same time a great choice for the cutting-edge addition to this home.
