Sure you want a fabulous nightstand that can hold your latest gadgets provide some tabletop space for the lovely lamp and even tuck away some of the mess around your bed. But getting all that done on a budget is even more fun! A DIY box-style bedside table is easy to craft and you can use everything ranging from worn-out vintage trunks and cinder blocks to a simple wooden crate and a few metallic beams. The idea is simple does not take more than a weekend and you have a nightstand that is well and truly unique.
The idea of a floating bedside stand might be new but you would not really know that if you flipped through the images of the most inspiring bedrooms around. Pretty much every homeowner seems to have embraced the idea gleefully and a cool little floating box next to the bed definitely enhances the contemporary appeal of your bedroom. Saving precious square footage combining these levitating delights with bedside pendant or sconce lighting is the perfect way to complete a small bedroom where every inch matters.
Do not be afraid to combine a third color with gray and blue in the bedroom. This need not necessarily be white as both blue and gray can create a neutral and inviting setting which allows other bold hues to shine through. A touch of red or orange looks great in the coastal or nautical bedroom while a pop of fuchsia or pink can bring dazzle to the girls’ bedroom. Yellow is a great choice in bedrooms with light shades of gray and blue as it ushers in sun-kissed charm while brown can give the space a more masculine finish.
Gray and pink is a color combination that brings together glamour style and understated modernity. It offers a balance between two contrasting worlds with one signifying opulence and the other a sense of minimalism and practicality. If you want the nursery to reflect a more modern contemporary or urbane appeal then we suggest you make gray the primary color of choice. Those who want a girl’s nursery that is ‘cuter and more colorful’ might want to fill the room with more of pink. Hot pinks and bright fuchsia are currently hot hues and they definitely stand out visually even when used in moderation. Pastel pinks are also a hit and seem far easier on your eyes!
When it comes to bedroom decor nightstands are as necessary as they are stylish. A place to set the alarm clock cell phone and lamp they can also hold favorite books and magazines that are read before bed. Yet often these small furnishings get overlooked. After all a bedside chair or other compact item can pass as a nightstand as well as a couple of stacked cinder blocks.
From space maximization we move on to doubling the amount of bedside tabletop room and storage area with twin nightstands. The advantages here are obvious and even in a really small bedroom; the bedside table duo offers symmetry and sense of visual continuity. If you are planning on using two bedside table lamps in a small bedroom then choosing identical nightstands is a smart option. In large rooms a mismatched nightstand approach works perfectly well. No matter which route you take make sure that you get the placement and proportion just right.
