French Nightstand Bedside TableFrench Nightstand Bedside Table

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.

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.

Create a peaceful atmosphere. What would a peaceful bedroom look and feel like to you? Consider whether there's a certain color (like vivid turquoise) or object (like a vase of fresh flowers) that really brings to mind the mood you want to create. Only bring in objects with the intention of cultivating peaceful restorative feelings. Take action: Take some time to sit quietly in your refreshed space and list the colors objects and activities you'd like to invite more of into your room. Pick one item on your list and take a step toward making it a reality. For example if you'd like to paint your bedroom a more soothing hue take a trip to the paint store to pick up swatches. If you'd like to incorporate meditation into your nightly routine create a quiet corner with cushions where you can practice.

Fresh romantic. Pure linen sheets or pillow shams flowing white curtains and fresh flowers are musts for this look. Practicing a bit of restraint will keep it from veering into froufrou territory — a bit of a ruffle perhaps but skip the floral prints. Walls painted a pale minty green provide a soothing backdrop.

Consider the furniture layout. Your bedroom's architecture should take your furniture into account. Bedroom floor plans usually have a bed wall — but what about dressers nightstands TVs chairs and a desk? Work with your architect or designer to make sure there is enough space beside the bed for nightstands and ample circulation so you can access three sides of the mattress.

Focus on the view. A bedroom always feels nicer when the first thing you experience is a pleasant view out the window — as opposed to a view looking straight at the bed. If you're designing a new bedroom or reworking an old one try to come up with a layout that focuses on the vista — whether it's something as stunning as a lake or as simple as your backyard.

Glass screen. A glass screen or panel extends about 60 percent of the way across the side of the tub and is fixed to the wall with brackets or hinges. It can be stationary or have a door that swings out from the tub. A glass screen is a great option in small bathrooms because it takes up less space physically and visually since less glass and hardware are needed. A glass panel with a door that swings out because it fit the room's contemporary feel and makes the tile in the shower a focal point. The swinging door allows better access to the water controls.

Parisian chic. A restrained palette of black and white can feel really luxurious especially when you choose textures and details that thrill the senses. Smooth dark (or even painted) wood floors and crisp white walls create an envelope to fill with little luxuries — fine sheets and a delicate coverlet a petite chandelier a velvet cushion. Add a bit of sparkle with a few vintage perfume bottles and spritz sheets with linen water before slipping in for the night.

A floating shelf provides enough space for the nightstand essentials: a vase of fresh flowers a candle — perhaps in a soothing scent like lavender — and a book. The designer saved surface space in this North London bedroom by choosing a hanging pendant. With no room to go wide along the sides of this bed the designer created a narrow but deep shelf. This photo of the same bedroom shows how the floating shelves line up neatly with the walls of the niche. The space beneath them is still available for stashing items; here it's a black case but baskets decorative boxes or even a stack of books would also work.There's no reason a floating shelf needs to be wooden. Blogger Michelle Hinckley found this vintage version at an estate sale and spray-painted it white. A slim task lamp offers lightweight illumination. This bedroom has a bit more space on either side of the bed. Nonetheless it's a good illustration of how floating nightstands can create the feeling of buoyancy in a room. Because floor space isn't taken up beneath the wall-mounted tables the room reads as a little more open. The pathways on either side of this bad aren't wide but the two floating cubes create the illusion of more space since they don't fill the entire gap. Pendant lights save surface space. The feature wall is planked cedar. This floating nightstand is in the same wood as the behind-the-bed feature wall and has a contemporary minimalist look. This space isn't as small as some of the others but the wall behind the bed doesn't have much space on either side of the bed frame. The floating shelves have two layers offering more space to stash nighttime necessities. This floating option isn't really a shelf at all but a ledge built into the wall planking. It holds a clock radio and plant with room left over for glasses and cellphone.
