5 Tips For Styling Your Nightstand

By April 19, 2022April 22nd, 2022No Comments

A nightstand…one of the first things you see when you wake up and often one of the last things you see before going to bed. While its primary purpose revolves more around functionality, it is still an area that can reflect your own personal style. Below are five general tips we recommend when styling your nightstand:

1. Lighting

The importance of lighting in interior design should come as no surprise. The presence of this element, whether artificial or natural, can completely transform the ambiance and function of a space. We recommend placing a light source near your bedside table–wall sconces, tall table lamps, or pendants are all great options.

2. Storage Solutions

Despite most nightstands being equipped with drawers or shelves, we recommend adding decorative items like boxes, bowls, or trays to help organize smaller personal items.

3. Decorative Layer

A great way to add a decorative layer to your nightstand is by placing a mirror or artwork on or above the bedside wall. If you’re going the latter route, make sure the piece(s) you select complements the overall aesthetic of your room. Designer tip: by placing a mirror behind your light source you can increase the light disbursement in the room–allowing it to feel larger and brighter.

4. Botanical Beauty

Make your bedroom a sanctuary of natural beauty with plants and flowers. Not only can these botanical bouquets serve as an impactful visual moment, but their presence can also provide plenty of health benefits. According to florist Mairead Curtin, Lavender, Peace Lilies, English Ivies, and Rosemary are good options that promote air filtration and restful sleep.

5. Personal Touch

Sentimental items like photographs, jewelry, and books can infuse your space with warmth and personality. Just be mindful of not overcrowding the surface.
