This is a frequent, sometimes inevitable, occurrence in secondary bedrooms. The headboard wall is flanked by a door to a closet on the other side there’s a door to a bathroom. After you place the bed you realize that there is no room for a standard nightstand, and forget about a matching set!
The solution is small tiered tables. Unfortunately you don’t find many of these tables in the market; I had to custom design these for our clients Guest Bedroom. But when you do find a table that suits your size and style needs, here’s how they can function in place of traditional bulky nightstands.
On the top tier you should make sure that the lamps you select are in scale with the tables and provide enough light for reading. On the other tiers you can use boxes or baskets for things you don’t want exposed or need to keep organized (such as prescriptions, stationery, pens, etc.) or you can use them to pile the latest novels you are reading. Adding some life to an unused bedroom is always a good idea, use one of the tiers to display floral arrangements or small lively accessories.
By giving your spare bedrooms a bit more attention to function, your guests will feel more at home and perhaps enjoy a few more visits!
