How to Style Your Bedside Tables


Although it's important to make our bedside tables look beautifully put-together, it's just as important that they are practical and personal to whoever is sleeping by them each night. Here are a few general ideas that you can follow and tailor to each individual nightstand in your home.

 

Go Bold With Your Night Light

I do love a classic bedside lamp, but it can really pay off to think outside the box and go for something with a bit more oomph! Pendant lights and sconces are a couple of great options that will also free up space on your table.


CHOOSE PRACTICAL AND BEAUTIFUL ACCESSORIES

Before you choose your accessories, think about how you use your bedside table:
Do you remove your jewellery each night before you sleep? If so, find yourself some beautiful bowls or trinket boxes.
Will you leave your phone by your bed overnight? A phone stand or charging pad would be perfect for you.
Do you bring a glass of water to bed with you? Add coasters to your shopping list.
Do you keep your skincare by your bed? A decorative tray to display these works beautifully.
Everybody has a different routine, but these types of questions should help you to decide what accessories will be useful to you.


VARIATIONS WITHIN GEOMETRY

Just like I mentioned in this post last month, geometry is a super important part of styling. Use a mixture of shapes, odd numbers and create a contrast in size within your pieces. Make sure to check out my 'Coffee Table Styling Ideas' post for a more in-depth explanation.

I hope these ideas help you to style your night stands in a beautifully practical way. Let me know in the comments or over on Instagram if you use any of these tips!

 

Love, Bethany
