Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.

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.

Bedroom floor plans usually have a bed wall — but what about dressers nightstands TVs chairs and a desk?

Dapper gent. As polished and tailored as a bespoke suit this look is based around handsome materials like wool wood and leather and traditional menswear patterns like a windowpane check and plaids. Furniture with clean lines and neatly tucked bedding keep things looking fresh and modern while a monogrammed accent injects a bit of personality.
