Nighstand Styling

Oh no, I’m not THAT kind of expert. But I can help you create some excitement in your décor!

Nightstands are a super fun and easy way to bring some personality into the bedroom without going for a complete makeover. If you’re in the market for something new, consider bold pops of color, or unique pieces that you might not necessarily think of as a standard “nightstand.”

Great way to save money here: garage sales and thrift stores. It you find a piece with a nice shape, give it a new coat of paint in a fun color.

My favorite element in design in to mix and match. This is now a trend in nightstands. You don’t have to buy the standard pair of matching tables with a drawer. Create some interest by mixing it up a little, by having a table and a cabinet, or a trunk and a table, or two different kinds of tables. Have fun with it!

The rules: 1. Make sure both sides are approximately the same height.
2. Both sides should have a connection in some way (finish, color, shape, style).

OK, OK, so you already have the standard pair of stands with a drawer and shelves. How do you spice it up?

1. Mix up your lighting (again, keep the heights within the same range).

2. Add visual interest with different heights of items on each stand.

3. Everyone is using their phone these days for an alarm, so throw out the digital clocks and add a cool replacement.

4. Fun artwork either on the stand or on the wall.

5. Decorative boxes to hold the ugly stuff.
