Night tables are pretty essential pieces of bedroom furniture. But many tend to be a bit utilitarian in terms of style and they can get cluttered with our necessities. To give your bedroom the royal treatment first declutter your nightstand. Remove excess paperwork and posessions leaving only lighting a book and perhaps a small vase of flowers. Next swap out your current nightstand for one with a luxury finish — mirror or shagreen is a great option. A subtler route is to choose a piece with reflective hardware such as crystal or brass. In this bedroom the mirrored table shiny lamp and gilded mirror create a regal look even against a plain white wall.
Trunk or suitcases. To add a vintage look to your bedroom go for those old and weathered suitcases you've had your eye on in the thrift store. Stack them together and place a sturdy tray on top for a fun DIY night table. Opt for a variety of colors to create a design feature in the room or get crafty and paint your suitcases the same color for a more Shabby Chic look as in this photo. Similarly pull that old trunk out of your attic. The large surface area can easily accommodate a lamp and other decorative items. Carry the vintage style of the trunk into the rest of the room by scattering around small accessories like old photo frames or an antique mirror. Tip: The storage space inside a trunk is a perfect place to stow extra blankets.

Tropical hue. Deep watery blue hues are among my favorites for a bedroom. The slight green undertones give a bit of warmth that a true blue lacks. It's also a nice choice if you happen to associate the color with a vacation spent someplace warm lush and tropical. For the ceiling I went with a crisp and light greenish-gray and the trim color is a slightly cool off-white.

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.
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.
Boho glam. Pick a classic decorator favorite (like the upholstered bed with nailhead trim shown here) to build the room around then mix and match accessories at whim. Bamboo blinds and colorful printed bedding paired with a glass-top table and a fun framed print add up to a laid-back yet glamorous look.
