There’s nothing we love more than climbing into bed at the end of a tiring day, and so we want the experience to be as stress-free as possible — no rooting around for those essentials you need just before you nod off. Maybe the book you’re reading, your phone charger, or a glass of water. Bedside tables are the perfect place to keep all these things, but if you’re buying one, there are some options out there.
Do you want drawers to keep lots of things close to hand, or would you prefer a minimal design for your Marie Kondo’ed bedroom, free of superfluous possessions? Here are five designs to get you started on your quest for beside organisation.
When picking the right furniture pieces for the bedroom, we instantly focus on the bed because it is the most functional and important piece in the space, right?
However, choosing the right bedside table is equally important because what you place beside the bed affects not only how functional space is but also how aesthetically pleasing!

- A Simple Nightstand
Nightstands are an essential element in any bedroom. They are useful and provide a convenient place for you. This will help you place a lamp, your nighttime reading material, your remote control and your cup of warm milk. Nightstands with drawers offer a place to put things out of sight while nightstands with shelves provide open storage space. These nightstands are also a way to enhance the looks of your bedroom. Consider the space you have in your bedroom before you choose the right nightstand for you. Tall nightstands can be a great fit for traditional tall beds. Small nightstands are often the right choice in cosy bedrooms.
- A Small Bookcase
If you have a lot of small novels lying around, a small bookcase can fit your smaller books. The bookcase is usually made with really light material and can still be sturdy having a good weight capacity. White colour with decorative floral sides can make your bookcase look really cute like a living room decor piece. This bookcase is also quite easy to assemble, as everything just snaps together.
- A Desk
Often impossible to find room for in a small space, desks can make perfectly sound nightstands. Cosying up to a desk next to the bed leaves some room at one end for bedside Tables essentials like a lamp, an alarm clock, and a smartphone. With a chair or stool that tucks under the desk, the single table can pull double duty as both a nightstand and a rare desk. Plus, you’ll be able to hop up and jot things down in your dream journal with ease.
- A Console Table
Console tables make room for those things you like to have close by. You can go for a console table that has space for remote controls and a cup of coffee.
