Different ways to use bedside tables

July 31, 2022 0 Comments

Nightstands have been a classic part of bedroom furniture for generations. Having a place to rest, a glass of water, and a lamp to read at night makes a lot of sense. Maybe there’s a great sale at his local furniture store or maybe his aunt gave him a pair of her old furniture. Whether you’re wondering what to do with your extra nightstand or want to think of unusual ways to shake up your decor with nightstands, take a look at these five different uses for bedroom nightstands.

1. As a classic piece

First consider the classic use: as a nightstand! If you’ve never used a nightstand or are thinking you don’t really need one, take a look at the benefits of bedroom nightstands. A bedroom is not the same without that place to keep the alarm clock and lots of reading material. Your nightstand is where you’ll know your glasses are when you wake up. Having a nightstand also reduces clutter around the bed. With shelves and drawers to keep things contained, your bedside necessities won’t be damaged by being stepped on in the middle of the night.

Whether you use a small table and just put a clock and lamp on it or choose one with several drawers and shelves and fill them up, having a nightstand will reduce the hassle in your morning routine. If you have a large bedroom, you may want to have two nightstands to fill the space.

2. As a side table

Bedroom nightstands work as great end tables in your living room or family room. At just the right height to reach from the sofa, nightstands are perfectly disguised as side tables. With small drawers and shelves, a nightstand offers more storage space than the average end table. Although in individual cases it depends on the style of the nightstand and your decoration style, if you feel relaxed with the way you decorate, adding a random nightstand will fit perfectly and give you additional table space.

3. As a seat

If your nightstands are sturdy and the same height, putting two or three together and covering them with pillows makes extra seating quirky and unexpected. This DIY bench is also a great way to make an instant window seat.

4. As a TV shelf

Nightstands make excellent television platforms. Put one in your bedroom or in the kitchen on one of those extra nightstands. If the nightstand is big enough, you can pull out the top drawer and put your DVD player in that space. The small size of the nightstand makes it the obvious choice to go with a small TV.

5. As a children’s bookcase

Bedroom nightstands are small, so they fit into a baby or toddler’s room effortlessly. Put the cardboard books on the shelves or the special treasures in the drawers. Children will find it easier to access a smaller piece of furniture, so a nightstand is ideal. Your child’s imagination could even turn into a fire department or dollhouse during playtime.
