Floating shelf. If your bedside space is challenging or if you prefer a minimalist style try a floating shelf as your night-table alternative. The designs of floating shelves today go beyond the simple white or wood rectangles we've come to know. Stylish shelves can be found in glossy hues and a variety of shapes and can also feature useful storage options. Shelves flanking the sides of the bed often appear built-in and look best when they are the same size and style. Look for a shelf wide or deep enough to hold a small bedside lamp and book and hang it at the same height as the top of your mattress.

Architect Scott Weston isn't shy when it comes to color. In fact Weston sees color as a powerful tool that can set a home apart. This all-blue bathroom is far from cookie-cutter. The frameless shower screen and minimalist sink allow the tiles to be the main event without competition. In the same project — an addition to an 1880s Victorian in Sydney — this bathroom delivers the same quirky twist through the use of another unexpected color.

A styled nightstand makes your bedroom look complete. Keep only essential items here such as a lamp clock and book and decorative details like a dish to hold your jewelry or a memento. Keep this area clean and dust-free as you don't want to wake up to a mess or breathe in allergens while you sleep. The interior style of your bedroom should guide you in your choice of bedside items. A coastal-inspired bedroom could have lush green tropical leaves in a glass bottle on top of a stack of books and a maritime-inspired clock for example. Boho bedrooms might feature a small arrangement of brightly colored flowers and a string of beads. Just don't be overly obvious in your approach to themes.
