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. Tip: Attach the shelf to the wall with anchors and screws that can hold 40 pounds or at least the load that your shelf instructions recommend. Be sure that the combined weight of your bedside items is less than the shelf's maximum load.
Because the bedroom is one of the simplest rooms in the house it's often overlooked. One of the first steps to a great bedroom design is having an efficient and well-designed floor plan that gives you everything you want — no matter how much space you start with.

Refined feminine. Crisp black and white stripes paired with soft misty blue create a chic elegant look that is easy to love. Keep accessories pared down and simple with favorite bags and jewelry on display and a few simply framed art prints on the wall. Bring in delicious texture with a cuddly mohair throw and smooth sateen sheets.

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.
Color pops. Liven up a plain bedroom with an accent wall covered in fabulously bold wallpaper. For the truly fearless choose a contrasting color (like the yellow here against the peacock blue wall) for the bedside tables and cushions. If you prefer to limit your pop to one place choose a white or wood headboard and tables and layer on neutral (but deliciously textured) bedding.
Increase light and ventilation. Locating your bedroom at the corner of your home can give you windows on two or more adjacent walls. This gives you the added benefit of cross ventilation and a softer natural light.
