One or Two Nightstand? How to Style Your Bedside Table

    The bedside table has always been
    essential in the bedroom, even though we don’t always realize it. Just imagine
    how life would be without a table by your bedside. 

    There wouldn’t be a place to store your
    books for night reading, hide your midnight snacks, or keep your remote
    controls so you can stay in bed for as long as you want. Working from home may
    not be the same if it weren’t for the bedside table that saves you from having
    to sit in your living room or kitchen just to have the tablespace. 

    A well-decorated bedside table may not
    essentially be the key to a good night’s sleep. But, it sure can complete the
    look of your bedroom. Let’s start with a few suggestions on what to put on

    8 Essential Items to Put
    On Your Bedside Table 

    Lamp – Lamps just
    complete bedside
    . They just
    set the mood and give you the necessary light for reading before bed. They are
    functional and often, being stylish is a bonus.

    Essential Oil Diffuser – Diffusers are all the rage these days for their
    said benefits of essential oils. They perform double duty by increasing
    humidity levels and diffusing oils. 

    Alarm Clock – You may be used to using your phone as an alarm, but
    an old-fashioned alarm clock is a great way to stay away from your phone, at
    least even before you could wash your face. 

    Tissue Box – A bedside table can also keep the tissue handy
    whenever you’re suffering from a bad cold or simply need to wipe away the tears
    whenever you’re binge-watching a drama. 

    Trinket Tray – Keep your bedroom free from clutter by keeping small
    accessories like rings, bracelets, and necklaces in a trinket tray. It keeps
    you from misplacing them, too. 

    Journal – You never
    know when a great idea will strike or whether you’ll be able to store it
    mentally. Keep a fancy journal on your bedside table for those aha moments. 

    Plants – There are
    plenty of NASA-approved indoor plants that are great for air purification. You
    may fancy getting one for yourself or taking one of your plants in the bedroom.

    Scented Candles – Even when not lit, scented candles are effective in
    making the room smell fantastic. Light them up and they’re sure to make your
    room a warm place to relax and unwind. 

    These are but a few of the many things you
    can put on your table. Others include eye masks, flower arrangements, and
    framed photos. 

    5 Ideas to Style Your
    Bedside Table 

    Use Accessories of
    Varying Heights 

    Proportion is key to creating the perfect
    bedside table. Use accents of varying heights to add a dynamic dimension
    instead of objects of the same size that create a flat, dull look. As such,
    consider placing a tall lamp for drama and smaller accents to balance it. 

    • Introduce

    Similar to the way
    different heights add interest to your bedside table, varying textures create a
    visual impact. Think smooth accents like ceramic vases and table lamps on your
    glass top bedside table. You can also use it to accent your visibly grained
    wooden table. 

    • Choose the Right

    Besides texture, it’s
    also a great way to use hues that will contrast the color of your table. Opt
    for accents in similar colorways—you may also want to use linens within the
    same color family to complete the look. To finish, consider pops of bold color
    and metallic tones to add a few contrasting tones to the overall design. 

    • Stay Practical 

    As much as how you would
    want to decorate your bedside table, you’d also want to keep it practical. By
    practical we mean using it as a place to store your personal belongings
    including trinket trays, clocks, and journals. It’s why you’d want to invest in
    something that not only serves its purpose but also complement your design

    • Edit, edit,

    It’s easy for your
    bedside table to become a dumping ground for items that you want to keep in
    handy before bedtime. To avoid that, make sure that you clean it regularly and
    get rid of anything unnecessary. While at it, you might also want to switch up,
    mix and match, and replace your decorations now and then. This will keep your
    bedside table interesting, not to mention personal. 


    Over the years, the
    bedroom has transitioned from being merely a place to sleep in into a personal
    space where we can be ourselves and spend our days comfortably. It’s why
    comfort and personalization have become two important factors that are given
    priority when decorating our homes; when it comes to these things, it’s nearly
    impossible to not give bedside tables a thought. 

    They complete your
    bedroom, both in terms of comfort and style. They can be further personalized,
    depending on your lifestyle and the mood you’d like to achieve.
